We dined here several times. Very varied menu, typical asian/Chinese food. They catered to my wish for simply broth with greens on one day not on the menu, so thumbs up for that. Bit pricey but next to several hotels so understandable. Very good service. They do take away.

We were a group of 14, seated at 2 round tables pushed together. We had reserved well in advance. Some of the place settings did not have room for a chair. Only the one table were given menus. They have 3 different menus, our table only got the small lunch specials version, after having to ask. A waiter brought 3... More

I go to this restaurant very often. They are open on Sundays night, that´s why I visited them often. The service is average, the food is good and it has parking in front. Nothing to live and get die.

This is not the original chinese food as you find in China, but it is the best costarrican version of the chinese food. The cantonese rice is the best there is, as well as the breaded chicken with vegetables in salsa de ostión, pollo agridulce, egg rolls, beef with broccoli, fried wantan, etc. (those are some of my favorite dishes)....

I have been coming to this restaurant for the past 22 years. I have tried many chinese restaurants and this still offers the best fried rice and tofu soup. I must say, it can be a hit or miss on the service. I avoid lunchtime because it gets packed and service is not at its best. I always try to... More

This restaurant has been here for as long as I can remember. They have never failed to please. We had wonderful combo meal for families. We had a group of 11 and they didn't even bat an eye in taking care of us. Try the crispy rice.

The best chinesseThe best Chinese food in San Jose. In addition, it is not expensive. It is advisable to make a reservation, especially on Sundays at lunch. For a group family dishes are an excellent choice.

I tried to post a comment two days ago about an experience I had at this restaurant and then I got an email from the trip advisor telling me that my comment wasn't good enough for this site.

Make yourself a favor and do not go. The atmosphere is depressing, food is disgusting and on top of that, expensive! After two years living in San Jose, it is by far the worst restaurant experience I've ever had.
