We often go here after movies. The service is fast and the food is good. Our current favorite is the noodle soup.

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.

For a fast food place, Zao is excellent, very fresh and tasty! Quick service which is great because it's very busy during peak lunch and dinner times. Zao is very much like Cafe Rio with an Asian twist. It's a bit pricey with a drink,...More
