We stayed at PBSB last year in August and tried this restaurant for the first time.

We were not impressed at all, the service was slowly and the dishes we ordered we either too salty, or bland and the meats used were tough.

This year we decided to give it another try and we were delightfully surprised.
We were seated right away when we arrived for our reservation.

We placed our order with Hougar and the service was amazing. Hougar was very attentive, made suggestions and always made sure we had what we needed at our table.

Our favorites:
The egg roll appetizers
Tempura style string beans
Sweet and sour shrimp
Pan fried beef chow mein
Mongolian beef
Fried rice

Also had the wonton soup, very flavorful.

Hougar offered us desserts from ice cream, rice pudding to chocolate cake.
All delicious!

We will definitely be coming back to Zao Shen. It was a nice break from all the buffets on the property.

The food is great, freshly prepared and served hot and fast.

Mucho gracias Hougar for the excellent service. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

We were here in Sept 2014 and found the food way too salty and generally not too good. For some reason my wife wanted to try Zao Shen again. Since the buffet was really uninteresting I agreed. Major improvement the chow mein noodles and sea bass was really good. My wife loves rice and they brought her an extra bowl which made things great. The appetizers were uniformly good and the salad selection was also good. We did not try the soup.
I liked the chow mein and was pleasantly surprised the noodles were very good not the nasty hard things you would expect. My wife loved the sea bass we came back for a second night unfortunately they were out of sea bass that night.
The mango dessert was really good but again on the second visit they only had one left so I opted for the ice cream.
They must have a new chef as our problems with things being overly salty were fixed and the food was very good.

Thank you for a wonderful evening with excellent food and even better service. Jose Luis made excellent recommendations and was so attentive. We had several dishes and all of them were full of flavor. Get the fried green beans- great taste and crispy.
Thank you again Jose Luis, you made our evening special.

We tried several dishes here and it was BY FAR the best food the resort has to offer. Hoguer was so wonderful and helpful! We are returning to the restaurant on our last night because it was such a great experience and the food was so good.
