The food here is made fresh and is excellent. Even my picky kids liked it. The owner is originally from the U.S. and is very knowledgeable about the area. It's just a small place on the road to MA. I had dinner to go one evening and then had delivery to my hotel on another. Prices are very reasonable, especially for the quality of the food.

I've been back there several times since I first reviewed Ngo in their infancy and just like all new restaurants - it takes a little time to pull it all together. Susie and Kahn pulled it together so well they won the local competition for "Best Take-out Restaurant." This couple loves to cook and it shows. I love the Spicy Chicken Wings. They keep adding new items to the menu. Can't wait for the next delicious debut. Congratulations on your award, Susie and Kahn.

During our recent visit to MA we were worried about getting good vegetarian food. We were lucky to find NGO one evening. It is a small place but the husband/wife owners make fantastic clean and good quality food. They make all their own sauce with no preservatives/additives. They made very good vegetarian noodles and fried rice. They will also make custom vegetarian dishes if you let them know in advance. Their Avocado shake is excellent! They also deliver which was wonderful since you will be dead tired some evenings and if you stay in La Mariposa or any of the places nearby this is perfect. This is great for vegetarians who want to try something other than Rice and Beans.

Amazing tasting food! Unfortunately discovered this place rather late in our trip, so only ate here twice, but both times the food was so so so good. Everything is cooked fresh when you order!! We had the salad rolls, chop suey, and the sweet and spicy chicken.
There is not really a lot of room to "eat in"- but perfect for bringing back to your hotel or having a picnic on the beach. Prices were the best in the area for the quality of food. Yes, it is a bit crazy to think that you can find amazing Chinese/Vietnamese food in Costa Rica, but it is true! The owners are also very nice and friendly. Just remember to bring cash, as credit cards are not accepted here. Overall, highly recommend!!!!

We had the Dulce Picante Chicken (sweet and spicy chicken) and it was very good, lots of flavor, and the portion size was okay. I think it was a little over priced for what you get, chicken and rice for $7 but nonetheless it was very good. The dumplings were also delicious. One thing that bothered me about this place is you never could tell when they were going to be open. Sometimes they would be open for lunch and dinner, sometimes only dinner, sometimes only lunch and other times not at all. It was kind of frustrating! Other than that if you are in the mood for great Asian food, definitely check this place out.
