Same great food

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... read 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

There are a lot of good restaurants in Manuel Antonio but most of them are quite expensive. Finding Ngo was a refreshing change and our scrumptious lunch didn't break the bank either. The quaint shop is located right on the road from Manuel Antonio to Quepos-next to Super Joseth. The owners are lovely people who take pride in making their... More

Tried the place after reading the reviews and I would have to say my experience was very enjoyable. The Wings and BBQ pork Ba Mi were excellent and the Singapore noodles were good but not the best I've had. I actually enjoyed dining in the small place and the food came out hot and fresh. The ice tea was awesome... More
