Pan Asia summons guests into its sleek yet casual atmosphere with oceanic lighting, mounted TVs, and its star—a menu of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai recipes. Chinese specialties range from orange-flavored spicy chicken ($10.50) to Marco Polo’s Delight, tender beef hiding from fresh jumbo shrimp in a pool of noodles and lobster sauce ($11.50). Amid the blue- and green-lit bar and floor-to-ceiling bamboo plants, a quintet of curry sauces ($10.25) fights for the affections of Thai cravers, as does the thai basil fried rice topped with the customer’s choice of chicken, shrimp, tofu, veggies, or pineapple ($7.75–$8.50). Starting at 4 p.m., chefs begin rolling ingredients into sushi delights, such as the Celtic maki, whose bite-size agglomerations of tuna, hamachi, salmon, cucumber, and avocado ($10.95) are the perfect shape for throwing at Michael Flatley.
Pan Asia summons guests into its sleek yet casual atmosphere with oceanic lighting, mounted TVs, and its star: a menu of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai recipes. Nests of lo mein noodles cradle tender slices of shrimp, beef, roast pork, and chicken, and five styles of Thai curries—including the Indian-influenced massaman—transform coconut milk into liquid heat, warming tongues with infusions of classic spices. Representing the artful cuisine of Japan, paper-thin sheaths of seaweed enfold rice and raw fish to create sushi varieties that include spicy salmon maki and boston maki, a roll of yellowtail, crab stick, avocado, scallions, and tobiko.
Sea-foam-green lights illuminate the underside of the counter at the sushi bar, making the legs of guests look as though they’re underwater or ailed with the asparagus disease. Bright-green shafts of bamboo shoot from floor to ceiling from a bed of dried river rocks, obscuring the intimately lit restaurant from the bright lights of the takeout lobby.:m]]
