Freshest food - excellent

We walked in and we were the only ones there. Felt weird with such a highly recommended restaurant. All the food was excellent, we had some Chinese beer which was tasty. The kids loved the food, which we all shared. Very good value for the area

I promised Susan I would write a tripadvisor review for Ngo after returning from vacation. I'm about a month late in doing so, but I remember her name and wonderful food 30+ days later so that definitely says something about the service and food I received at Ngo. I went first for lunch and had the sweet and spicy chicken... More

We visited Ngo several times during our last trip to MA and made sure it was one of our first stops this time. Everything is fresh, inexpensive, and the portions are huge!

We saw this restaurant when walking to the supermarket decided we would go back for dinner. After traveling through Central America for a few months, we were looking for some good Asian food. We found it!! The best we had on our trip. The rice paper rolls were fresh and full of flavour and the green curry shrimp that was... More

Just 4 tables just off the sidewalk in the center of a shopping area. The food is very fresh and well prepared Vietnamese. The owners are from the USA and very hospitable. Portions are very large. Since we ate some wonderful fried dumplings first, we took our noodles home for another meal. They do not sell wine but you can... More

I'm a longtime user of Trip Advisor but never felt compelled to write a review until today. It is the last day of our honeymoon in Costa Rica and my husband I thought it'd be nice to stay in at our hotel to wind down the trip. Being Torontonians with an affinity for good Chinese food, we thought it'd be... More

had the chance to finally visit this little local establishment last week with a friend and what a pleasant surprise. It is a quaint place right in the middle of many small shops, restaurants and a busy traffic area,but once you step down into the restaurant, you are at ease and quickly presented with a great selection of fresh made...

We ordered the chicken wings, lo mein with roast pork, sweet and spicy chicken and orange chicken. The food was outstanding. Granted, the other reviewers did build up our expectations pretty significantly. But we found ourselves left thoroughly impressed. We highly recommend taking a break from the standard Costa Rican fare (and often inflated prices of Manurl Antonio) to enjoy... More

Cong and Susan do a fantastic job! The food is fabulous and plenty to fill you up. The atmosphere is so charming. We eat there at least 4 times during our vacation.
