Asiatic/Indonesian food

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

If you are looking for some asian cuisine in town, this is the place to go! I ordered some takeout after a recommendation from Tortuga Surf School, and I was pleasantly surprised.

I had the yellowfin tuna, my husband had the Cantonese stir fry both very good. The tuna was very over cooked and modest portion. The service was the worst. The owners are a married couple who argued the entire time we were there. We were BEGGING for a drink, the owners sat there and enjoyed their dinner while one employee... More

Loved the food! When we sat down, we were ignored. I had to go up and get my own menu. Noticed two people at the bar came in after us but got their menu and served their drinks whilst we waited and waited until I got up and got our menus and flagged down a waiter......

Always a great place for a stir fry with sate sauce, my favorite! Owners are very friendly and we love to come back year after year. Great little restaurant in the heart of Jaco, great place to sit & watch the world go by.
