THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ben Pao Restaurant Review

: Much is right with this somewhat upscale, stylish and always hopping Chinese restaurant from Lettuce Entertain You; the satay and tangy tangerine chicken are among our favorites, though the crispy garlic tofu is hard to beat. Of course, there's always black-peppered scallops, which come forth plump atop Chinese broccoli---it’s a dish large enough for two to share. Do not overlook the Szechuan specialties either---this is where this kitchen shows off its skills. Desserts might include a chocolate pagoda, chocolate spring rolls or banana cheesecake.
