Food is good, however the owners are unfriendly and rude. Not an inviting atmosphere. If it wasn't for my family liking the food I wouldn't go back.

Normally I get takeout but the atmosphere is nice and quiet. The food is normally quite good and never a long wait. I highly recommend this for chinese lovers.

I went to this restaurant today for a "relaxing, stress-free" meal because I was working very hard today. First of all, you have to pay at the register PRIOR TO SEATING! -This is ridiculous! -Plastic forks and spoons! -Rude employees! I asked for lemon with my ice water - it was 25 cents per lemon wedge. I asked for red... More

I only come here for the Wonton Mi (consists of shrimp wontons, golden noodles and pork Choy). It is a little pricy but worth it, since I can't get it anywhere else around here; the closest is China Town in DC. I do not order anything else on the menu because it is just Chinese food at a much more... More

If you blink your eyes, you could easily miss this small cafe sized dining hole in the wall. It may be small in size but it is big on flavor featuring a tasty variety of Asian dishes. I can't say I've had better Shrimp Fried Rice or Crab Rangoon anywhere. It's not fancy but it doesn't need to be...you order... More

I love the appetizers here! Especially the sesame wontons! The main courses are not as impressive.. I find them lacking in flavor.

I took out general T's chicken and sesame noodle - ingredients were fresh, daughters at register were friendly, food was watered-down American stuff. Being near a big Navy base, I had expected something more authentic. I visit Pax regularly and will search for something closer to authentic.

Great flavor, fresh and good portion size. The lunch deal includes a choice of two soups. Great value.

The food was fine, definitely get the bubble drinks. Atmosphere is a bit stark, like a small cafeteria, and the service isn't very friendly. Still, it drew a good lunchtime crowd, so people must really like the food over the atmosphere. Mostly Chinese food, with some Asian variations in noodles.

Teariffic Café is a small tucked away place but has really great food. Love the different spin on the oriental food. Service is friendly and efficient. Food portions are big so I always have a to go box when I leave.

Thank Spendo
