Slightly better than the other Chinese restaurants in Jaco, but really not that good. Reasonably priced.

Passed by this small and cozy restaurant by accident. Me & friend was lured by the impeccable & wonderful smell so we decide to go back and try their food. It was typical Chinese cuisine. Simple menu, Small dining area but very cozy at night with open kitchen and overlooked the Main road in Jaco town. The owner "Sir Lee" (He was joking around and told us that's his Chinese name but he was from Holland originally!) Such a great gentleman & we enjoyed both the food & conversation. Even though the menu is kinda small compared to regular takeout or eat-in Chinese restaurant, but I felt that's what makes the place so special. I like to introduced the chef as well, We believed she is from Jaco town and she wasn't Chinese but she sure cooks like one. We love this little place & will definitely go back in the future. Thanks again for the wonderful night Sir Lee.

My husband and I were in Jaco for 2 weeks and we were recommended to try this place from our neighbor, Nancy. We fell in LOVE with this place and the owners, Leslie and Lee. Please try the steak with stir fried veggies with the home made house soya. Also the shrimp with noodles and coco ginger is delicious. We will definitely eat here in the future. Love it!!!!!

This is true Asian fusion at it's Best. Every meal is fantastic. The owners Lesley and Lee are very gracious and you never feel like you are hurried through your dining experience. There are several items to choice from with homemade sauces of your choice. If you are not sure of your wants just ask. Everything is made to order and you will be happily explained the process and tastes. The Indonesian flair is there to please the palate and treat your taste buds. Best of all it is HEALTHY. Stop in and have a excellent dining experience.
