Great place in central Xela serving really tasty, affordable asian cuisine. We had the dumplings and tofu stir fry and were very happy with both. Service was excellent, but we were also the only patrons dining at the time so that is to be expected....More

We went here for a friends birthday dinner and the food was great! Many vegetarian and vegan options. Even gave us a free yummy dessert with a candle for our friend with the birthday!! Highly recommended for anyone looking for some good Asian fusion!

Under new management who've started making a Western style breakfast in the mornings. Great food and excellent value. I'd recommend the fresh juice alongside any of the breakfast dishes. The buffets- once a month- are pretty good too.

Very reasonably price food in a very rustic setting! Not even close the best asian food in Quetzaltenango. It is neither really bad nor really good! If you are on a tight budget it will do!
