“A delicious taste of Asia in the Guatemalan highlands!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

After many months on the road travelling from Asia to central america this restaurant was, undoubtedly, a favourite of ours during our time in Xela. Fresh delicious food, great atmosphere, helpful staff and the yummiest Pad Thai since I left Bangkok! Not to mention the great value for money. La Esquina comes highly recommended for carnies and vegetarians alike.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I have eaten here several times, and every time I have been impressed by the food. Really tasty authentic asian food, and served in a homely environment with nice decorations. I would recommend it to anyone passing through Xela.

“Amazing Asian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This was such an amazing restaurant. People always rave about the food in restaurants, but I personally think the feel of the place matters too. The surroundings, and the warmth I received from the staff was wonderful. I just felt really at home there.

Needless to say, the food there is amazing. I especially loved the dumplings. There aren't many chinese asian places in Xela, so this was a breath of fresh air for me after being there for 6 months.

Take my word for it, I'm asian, I know my food. Amazing food, amazing people, so friendly and warm.
