It was good but no longer. We always looked forward to freshly prepared Asian food with enough to take home.

When we got there the restaurant was full so the manager seated us outside and offered a drink while we waited. The drinks took a half hour to come. After we had the drinks other parties started to leave and each time he gave the table to newcomers who had had just gotten there, Finally we got a table, placed... More

Went in for the pizza but the oven was being repaired. We settled on Asian inspired shrimp dishes and we weren't disappointed. Rudy was fun and fabulous and our bartender was a laugh. Try it--you won't be disappointed.

When you travel to Mexico, the assumption is that you will eat Mexican food, and lots of it. On visiting Puerto Morelos, we discovered that some of the best food in the city is not Mexican food, but Chinese food. I don't know who thought of putting in a Chinese restaurant in small town Puerto Morelos, but it was a... More

Eating chinese food in Mexico is not my usual thing to do but we went with friends who love the wonton soup and crab rangoon. The food here is good- my husband and I split the pupu platter and it was still too much food. One person in our party had excellent tempura and everyone enjoyed the food once it... More

Don't bother with a reservation,it doesn't help. The weekends around 7 pm most all of the restaurants are really busy..so either get there early or plan to wait...that said.the pizza was good and when you visit PM for 10 days you are ready for something other than fish or tacos. So for a very affordable change..try their pizza.

I wish I could give this establishment a better review, because some seem to have been very pleased with the food, service, etc. and it has or at least had a reputation of being one of the better places to eat in Puerto Morelos. First of all, when we entered, we noticed all the table cloths were stained and very... More

This restaurant might be my top and I've been to over 30 of them in Cancun and Playa. Food has delicious flavors and the portions are huge. Service was great and all staff were very friendly. Menu is large with a ton of choices. I am going back again!
