Pan Asian Restaurant Review

: Among the wealth of inexpensive Asian restaurants in Manhattan, Pan Asian stands out for its diverse menu with dishes from multiple Southeastern Asian countries. Favorites include spicy hot chicken salad and shrimp summer rolls from Vietnam, green papaya salad and crispy whole fish from Thailand, Peking duck from Hong Kong, and sesame noodles from China. Heat levels can be adjusted on some items, depending on your preferences. The chicken curry is a veritable garden with its Japanese eggplant, bell peppers, onions and string beans and whatever else might be in season. The menu is biblical in its size while the dessert list just has a few items, including the always-good mochi.
