Thanks to a reader for passing on the Craigslist ad:

“Chao Ku, a Kickstarter-backed, fast-casual Chinese restaurant opening soon in Shaw, is looking for energetic applicants with a strong background in customer service and food preparation to join the team.

We currently have the following Front of House and Kitchen positions available.”

And you can check out their menu here.

    Not much fast casual over in this area so as long as the food is good I bet this has the potential to do very well.

      Exactly. And I’m really looking forward to this restaurant.

  • JohnH

    I’d recommend a “fast casual” Chinese restaurant having some familiar Chinese entrees to the average person. Their menu is a whole lotta random.

      The only thing out of place is the Singapore Noodles. Everything else at least sounds legit.

  • SG

    Just kidding. I am thrilled with another affordable new place opening that has an interesting menu that will bring something new to the city and neighborhood. Kudos to the owners for navigating the mind-numbing bureaucracy to open this place! Hope the food is good and that they kill it.

    I’ve been waiting for this place to open–seems like it’s been “coming soon” for a very long time now. menu does look unique–I was hoping for at least a few more of the staple chinoamerican dishes…

    anyone know of a target open date?

  • Just walked past this place again and other than the papers on the window being arranged differently it looks the same… Almost a month later and still nothing.
