Great Chinese Food

I went here with a group of friends after a long day of racing in the Belmopan Cycling Classic with Team Santino. Chon Saan had great chinese food and was an all around great experience and I highly recommend it.

Best Chinese Food in Belize, bar none, so when in Belize, if you are into Chinese, save some time and head straight to Chon Sann Palace whether in Belize City or Belmopan.

I ordered some chicken sweet and sour, expecting a typical Chinese dish with chicken and vegetables in a tasty sauce, served with rice. Instead of that I got some deep fried chicken strips with a handful of unsalted fries and prefab artificial coloured sauce. It was the worst food I've ever had in a Chinese restaurant. With BZ$ 20.50 the... 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.

We were looking for a chance of flavour after 2 weeks in Belize and were pointed to Chon Saan Palace. 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) with wonton soup,... More

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
