Tried the noodle bowl while my friend had the tacos - both delicious options and highly recommend! The line was nearly out the door around dinner time mid-week!

Dropped in for lunch. Haven’t tried this before. You chose your rice or noodles, meats or tofu, sauce and toppings. Choice of vegetables as well. Seemed to be a popular place, They stayed busy during our visit. Plan on spending 10-15 bucks for your meal.

The rice noodle bowls were really tasty! Nice that you can decide what you do and don't want added. I will definitely go there again when I travel to SLC.

The set-up is exactly like Chipotle- they even offer Guac, but with an Asian twist, having Edamame in the recipe. The service is quick, the food is out fast and very tasty. The ingredients are fresh and ready to go.

This is a great concept for well prepared, quick Asian-themed food. I've stuck with the bowls, and it's as simple as a noodle or rice choice, with protein added, and sauces and veggies of your choice mixed in. Great service, great value. Zao must mean...More
