“Excellent surprise in our hotel”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

I really did not think I would venture to the Asian Bistro during our stay in Puerto Rico, but my son really wanted to go there and it was conveniently located inside our hotel. In the end, we ended up going there twice. I am so glad we did! The owner was so charming and attentive. The service and the food were both phenomenal. We ordered vegetable lo mein noodles, dumplings, and the edamame. Absolutely worth a visit whether you are staying in the hotel or not!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Not much to say about this restaurant. Service, ambiance, quality and freshness of the food and portion sizes were all great. We had one problem: trying to decide which of the entrees and appetizers to order; the menu looked too good!

“Best Chinese in Puerto Rico”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

After 3 days of eating Puerto Rican food, I want to eat something different. I search for chinese food on here and found this place. The food from JH Yee is really good and I was amazed how good it was. You should try the peking duck and the steam fish filet. Their fried rice is so good too... One thing i have to mention is that Asian food is not very popular here on the island so you will see it not very crowd. But dont turn it away if the place look dead to you. Give it a try and I promise you wont regret.

“Wonderful food!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Some of the best Chinese food I've had. We ordered the Saigon fried rice (comes with pineapple, chicken, shrimp and pork) and another shrimp dish with vegetables. They were both wonderful. The service was excellent. The only Chinese restaurant I've been to that actually came out and served the food onto the plates. The owner is so charming and loves to make conversation.

“Charming owner and staff, but food quite forgetable”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

Positive:
- Owner and staff are all inviting and food came out quick.
- It is in "Verdanza" hotel. As expected for any restaurant attached to hotel, it is pricey and food is so, so. Well, it is convenient after a long walk at old San Juan earlier that evening and so we were happy to pay the price for convenience.

Neutral, things could improve:
- Food are okay to eat. First I was thinking they might show off fresh seafood products from PR in Chinese cooking style but their specials are mostly "land" animals. Best one might be pork ribs (came in as appetizer, sweet but a lot of meat). Noodle and the rest are flat.
- Price is too high for food that is not authenthic. 1/2 duck for $28, really? I didn't need to pay that much when I was at a "five stars" hotel, Wynn of Las Vegas. In any China town in US, the whole duck is <$20.
