The clerk helped me find each item on my list. She brought me lemon grass, galangal, Tamarind paste, yellow curry paste, shallots, kaffir lime leaves, and fish sauce. I needed the ingredients to make my wife's favorite Thai dish.

It was a fast and affordable experience. I paid with my visa, so they do accept credit cards.

Thank you Chao's

As of the beginning of 2011, Mr. and Mrs. Chao no longer own the store and the atmosphere has definitely changed. The current owner is a young guy who hardly speaks to customers when they enter the store unless you are a family friend.

The guy who works there during the late afternoon spends his time behind the counter either reading a text book or has his face in his laptop. One of the reasons I used to shop at Chao's was because of Mr. and Mrs. Chao. With the lack of friendliness and customer service, I'll take my business to a store I like in Sandy.

Business Response:

Thank you for your honest feedback. Ernie Silva has now taken over Chao's Asian Market, and we have moved to a new location. We now try to focus on quality service, and quality foods. If you are willing please stop by again and let us know what you think of what we are now doing.

This is the place to go to find ingredients for oriental cooking. The store is small but the selection is still large. They offer fresh asian veggies and products at a very reasonable price. This store also has asian cooking utensils/tools such as mortar and pestils, butcher knives, chopsticks etc.. The owners always greet everyone as they come into the store and make you feel welcome! (They have debit/credit card machine now)

If you've served a mission overseas and are craving to cook some Chinese food in Provo you'll have to settle for Chao's to get your items you need. The prices are a little high, but that's to be expected when you're looking for diversity in Provo. There is a wide selection of canned, dried, frozen, and fresh goods at Chao's and they also offer Chinese kitchenry items as well such as woks, rice cookers, plates, and dishes.

This is the one and only place to go if you are looking for Chinese groceries in Provo, UT. The next best bet is up in Salt Lake. The selection is rather meager but there's enough there to make most Chinese meals that you are planning, and the selection is much more than any American supermarket's stash of Chinese groceries next to Ramen noodles. Fresh vegetables come in on Thursday mornings so be there early as most people make the rush for them then.

It is a small store, but you can find basically what you need to cook Chinese or Japanese food there. Store is very closed to BYU. Beware to bring cash though, as they don't accept credit cards.

There are probably a few other Chinese grocery stores in this area, but they are in no comparison to Chao's. Mr. Chao and Mrs. Chao are very friendly and easy to work with. I can even buy calling cards from them by the phone and pay them the money with my next visit to the store. Even though they don't take credit cards, but I don't have any problem with it.

There are very few Chinese grocery stores in the Utah Valley. Chaos Trading Co is best among them all. The owners of the store are very friendly and helpful. The store has relatively a good variety of items for you to select including fresh Chinese vegetables you cant find in any regular supermarket. The only drawback is that they dont accept credit cards.
