    So, I'm bored and I wanted some Asian food, I pick out the new Kapao Asian Kitchen, Ashburn Restaurant Park, where the Five Guys is.

    I walk in and I automatically assumed, panda express/pei wei. Not happy at all, but I was already there and the was greeted by the workers and they were very nice and friendly so I decided to stay and give it a try.

    I wanted something spicy, so I ordered the Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken. I was thinking they probably won't make it spicy like how it's supposed to be. But to my surprise the dish was actually very good, not the best, but definitely better than your Panda Express for sure. I added a Soup and drink for $1.50 more. It's a little expensive for Asian/Chinese food but the portion was good and I was happy with the taste and the friendly customer service. Kids eat free on Monday and Thursdays from 4:30-9:30 when you order an adult meal.

    Walked in not happy, left very happy and I would definitely go back, and would take friends there for a meal. If I had to rate it, I'd give it a 3.9 out of 5.

    I liked it. I wanted to try something new for my birthday. It looks casual but very clean. Everyone is extremely friendly, especially the owner who came over to talk to us. The cashier made sure I understood how spicy the spicy stir fry is. It includes an entire cup of jalopenos. They're not kidding, it's spicy. However, it's also very good, if you really like jalopenos.

    I thought the sesame chicken was about the best I've tasted anywhere. Everything was very very fresh and the vegetables were crisp and cooked perfectly. My table also had the KaPao chicken, tofu fried rice, noodles with shrimp, and the steamed dumplings. Everything was very good.

    We're trying Kapao out tomorrow night. I've heard great things about the quality level and freshness, so I'm really looking forward to it!

    My family loves Kapao. My kids ask to eat there all the time now, and we probably go about once a week. I love that I can eat there and DON'T get a headache from the MSG in a lot of other Chinese / oriental style restaurants.
