This restaurant is just down the street from where we were staying, so we decided to try it. We ordered the dinner for two. We requested gluten-free since my husband can't have gluten. The fried won tons and spring roll were not gluten-free, of course, but the rest of the food was safe. It isn't your typical North American style... More

We were desperate for chinese food. However to give context, we are native chinese who have high standards for chinese food. This did not hit the mark. The taste is clearly catered to the Costa Rican taste, could not even find waiters/waitresses that spoke the language. Menu was in spanish/english. They offered typical fare that would probably satisfy most non-chinese... More

We walked here based on prior reviews. We went in and asked if I could have something vegetarian. The waiter was very nice and told me that could make fried rice with vegetables and no oyster sauce. We ordered and the food came out in no time at all and was piping hot. The service was attentive and friendly, portion... More

Very nice people that work here and very GREAT FOOD!!!! Get the special fried rice and you will see LARGE chunks of meat, instead of the small pieces that we see here in the United States.

This is by far one of the best Chinese restaurants in town. I went with my mother, who loves it! The food is always fresh, service is prompt and friendly, price is very reasonable. Be sure to try their "Arroz Tostado", simple awesome!

A friend recommended the place as great and it was but the price was just too high for what it is; Chinese food. I paid 20 dollars for a one person meal that included fried rice, egg rolls and a soda.

Thank Robert L
