“New Owners - Consistent If Not Even Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

David Lau's seems to have new owners
I had a curry chicken Chinese dish recommended by the owner / manager
He speaks very good English so that helps
The food was consistent through the change in management
It seemed to be even tastier than last year - which was highly recommended even then
The one humour are the two electric generators chained to a beam in the dining room
Mexico being what it is it seems for the last 5 years the previous owners bypassed the electric power charges
The new owners got a good jolt from the electric power company with a huge bill
While they negotiate the billing they are running off of the generators just fine
Obama's stupid mercury filled low wattage bulbs seem to have one advantage here

“Fun Music on Saturday Nights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

Interesting restaurant with a combo of Italian, Chinese and Thai foods. Service makes you feel like a townie rather than a tourist. Saturday nights they have some good acoustic rock music. On the plaza.

“Food pretty good but lacking atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

We were the only people in the restaurant so there wasn't much atmosphere. We had been sent because the amazing prawns. Maybe we chose badly but I had a prawn pizza and it was fairly average. Service was very good.

Outstanding food and service. The quality and flavors were unexpected and rewarding. Who would think you could find the best Chinese food ever in P. Morelos Mexico
