Fresh and Delicious!

The food here is fresh and delicious, the prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. The fresh spring rolls and Banh Mi sandwiches are incredible! We ate in the restaurant which is cute, but they seem to do a lot of delivery business. I would definitely recommend this place!

Great Chinese food in Costa Rica, and they deliver! Had the spicy peanut noodles, spring rolls, and fried rice. All awesome.

Who new you could get such good Chinese food in Costa Rica. The Spicy Orange Chicken and the Vietnamese Sandwiches were amazing. We also had the Chocobanano shake which hit the spot with the spicy food and warm temperature. The place looks like a whole in the wall with very few tables and only 2 people were working when we...

We were so happy to get back to Ngo. We got into town late and ordered take out, which made it so easy. I was so obsessed with getting the Singapore noodles, I ignored the wings and dumplings, which I found out the next time we order were terrific as was the Vietnamese sandwich! I don't think you can go... More

Love the asian fusion at NGO. The egg rolls and sweet and sour chicken dish are our favorite. Their chicken pad thai is awesome as well. The owners are a couple and they are very friendly.

CHINESE food in Costa Rica??? If you are tired of rice and beans, this is the place to go. The chow mien was great, the sweet sour chicken was fresh and tasty, fried but not soggy. The sweet was a bit too sweet from the pineapple but still good. The "spring" rolls were actually summer rolls, meaning they were wrapped... More

This really is a little gem and the owners are so friendly and genuine. We had the pork dumplings, thai green curry and sweet and spicy chicken, all of which were excellent. We highly recommend eating here!

It rained all day which made for a nice, relaxing Sunday. We decided to get our food delivered. Spicy chicken, dumplings and pork lo mein. Everything arrived hot and delicious. We'll definitely go back on our next trip to Manuel Antonio.

Ngo offers the freshest and tastiest Asian food in Manuel Antonio. It's conveniently located 50m from the Super Joseth grocery store (to the left of Tulemar). The menu is Chipotle-like, few choices with couple of variations (chicken or fish). We visited twice in a week and tried most of the options. Kids loved the sweet & sour chicken and fried... More
