We spent our first evening in Panama there as it was right adjacent to hotel. Very fun for people watching etc and staff was friendly despite our limited (close to nil) Spanish and their same level re English lol. Shared a plate of fries and some very nice, reasonably priced wine/beer. Menu was interesting and very modest pricing. Seemed very... More

We are here with four teen boys who crave Panda Express and Chipotle if that gives you any idea of the type of food we were looking for. No one spoke English here so we ended up ordering more than we knew we could eat just to make sure we ended up with food the kids would enjoy. There was... More

in your group! we love dim sum, and we were famished- didn't check too carefully. It's strictly Asian fast food. Some of it may be ok, but the dim sum ... was not.

Be prepared to wait, but then again the food is very good, hot and your Asian craving is satisfied without spending a fortune. Many Panamanian families, couples, singles were there. We would return to this spot!

We were craving for some Asian food after almost a month in Panama and we were happy to find this place. It's definitely not a high end place. It's more of a fastfood set up. You order over the counter and wait for your order to be called. The fried rice with chicken and the rice with fried shrimp were... More

Well, this is supposed to be a fast food, sort of. I had to wait 20 minutes, I was on a tight schedule and actually became a little upset. Nothing special, I found my chicken rather greasy and uninviting. I also ordered a jelly dessert, but it wasn't in the tray. Employees too busy in their chat, I suppose, to... More

I usually order home delivery at this place. The food is Ok. Not really Chinese as most Chinese fast food restaurants in the western hemisphere, but the service is reliable and the food quality consistent.

Its a very famous chinesse restaurant,, but for fast food... they have variety and the drinks are naturally made. For the price... the food is very good,, greasy of course, because it is fast food. They have also delivery, but they charge $2.50 additional.
