Bit of an adventure to get there but were greeted by a very friendly man when we arrived - the restaurant was clean and decor was modern. My husband and I both ordered a combo special ($28BZ... read more

Coming from the U.S. This restaurant was refreshing. The diversity of the menu, the fresh ingredients, the friendly staff make for a great experience. The first time we had dinner in the restaurant, the second time we had take-out. We had the advantage of having a gentleman who is in Belize every other month and has his favorites but to... More

I ordered delivery to my hotel and the service was prompt. I was in a soup mood and the hot and sour soup was tasty. If I stay at that hotel again, I will order again.

Chin Saan Palace is on a "rough" street one block off the main drag into the city. The retardant is pleasant and clean, and we were greeted warmly by a gentleman who we took to be the owner. We ordered some dIm sum, a stir fry or fish fillet and vegetables, and the green mussels with ginger and scallions. The... More

I ordered a delivered dinner - Conch Curry with rice. It sounded exotic. Food arrived as promised on time (30 min), hot, tasted good. Free delivery. No utensils, no napkin, no fortune cookie. But maybe they don't do fortune cookies in Belize?
