it's a classical big and without any charm Chinese restaurant, the service was too slow and the overall experience, disapointing.

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

We visited here during a brief overnight stay. The staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive throughout our meal. The food was excellent, with very generous portions. Overall a great meal.

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.

We dined here several times. Very varied menu, typical asian/Chinese food. They catered to my wish for simply broth with greens on one day not on the menu, so thumbs up for that. Bit pricey but next to several hotels so understandable. Very good service. They do take away.

We were a group of 14, seated at 2 round tables pushed together. We had reserved well in advance. Some of the place settings did not have room for a chair. Only the one table were given menus. They have 3 different menus, our table only got the small lunch specials version, after having to ask. A waiter brought 3... More

I go to this restaurant very often. They are open on Sundays night, that´s why I visited them often. The service is average, the food is good and it has parking in front. Nothing to live and get die.

This is not the original chinese food as you find in China, but it is the best costarrican version of the chinese food. The cantonese rice is the best there is, as well as the breaded chicken with vegetables in salsa de ostión, pollo agridulce, egg rolls, beef with broccoli, fried wantan, etc. (those are some of my favorite dishes)....
