We were really spoiled by the excellent service. The waiter was super and the food very good. I especially liked the prawn and veggie chop suey, very spicy and delicious. The margaritas were the best we had in all Zihut! We will definately go back.

Decided to try this restaurant after reading all the positive reviews. We were not dissapointed. First off, there is a photo album of all the dishes as you walk in, so you know what things look like. We ordered sweet and sour chicken, moo shu pork, and tempura shrimp (which came with lots of other tempura veggies). The food was... More

A very very lovely place to eat. We head straight to our favorite table, our host Abel and his wife Patricia, turn the fan above us on (poor sweating Americans) and proceed to delight us with really good food. It is easy to find. I have watering mouth syndrome just thinking of the wonderful smells as our lunch nears completion.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants and a must while in Zihua. With a choice of many great items, my favorites are the chicken chow mein and the szechuan beef. They also have great traditional mexican dishes and one of the best hamburgers in town. When you want a change from fresh seafood, this is the place to go.

We had met another couple and they invited us for chinese food. We all went and ordered four different items with some extra plates. We all shared the wonderful different flavors and they were all delicious. This place is a great find in Mexico.

If you like mu shu pork, go see Abel at Mi Chayito. Unfortunately, I haven't tried anything else. He serves with hoisin and plum sauces, but his twist on the dish is flour tortillas. It a wonderful dish and can be shared. For 2 diners, order an appetizer of pot stickers.

Ok, I've been all all over China and Honk Kong. Not to mention Taiwan, Tokyo and other places of amazing Asian cuisine. I know, Asian cuisine in Mexico, Zihua none the less!?! Let me reassure you, it is by far equal if not above it's distant counterpart. A group of us split platters between all of us. we covered the... More

We had the best dinner at Mi Chayito during our vacation -- the portions were very generous for the price, and the diverse array of items on the menu were all fantastic! The restaurant itself was beautiful as well -- a great place to host a special occasion!
