Owner/operator lived in Asia for a while, she's got the sauces and spices down...for locals it's a little pricey but not out of this world. If I could choose one place to eat all the time, this would be it.

We stayed 2 nights in Jaco. We wanted good food. We found this place, owned by a New Yorker Cook married with a Tica lady. The vietnamit rolls with mint sauce and the Thai noodles woks were excellent. The ambiance of the local inviting to conversation. Highly recommended.

This place looks good, and has open air dining. The food was reasonably diced, but rather bland and uninspired. Nota bad place, but there are many better options in Jaco.

The Pad Thai I had was delicious. Arrived quickly and was steaming hot. My dad enjoyed his rice dish as well, and he's tough to please. Laid back vibe - a definite "hole in the wall" but a really great find. Pad Thai was better than any I've had in Colorado. Free WiFi, too. I'm giving it four stars because... More
