Food was raw when supposed to be well done. We complained and THE WAITER took the dish and brought it back THE SAME WAY. Horrible experience at Yao. I used to go there a lot but now i have no intention to go back ever again.

Food was good but not exceptional. The service was a bit slow, but I will visit again. The location is great and the place is clean.

This has been a go to spot for me when visiting D.R. Hapadon is an interesting experiance and the quality of the fresh salmon is AMAZING! One of the best I have ever had. It is located in the Agora Mall. If you are looking for an Asian cuisine while in the Dominican Republic this is the place to go.

When visiting my family I had a craving for Asian food. We stumbled upon this place and at first glance was a truly amazing exterior. Inside was just as great as well. The food though.. Words can't describe how good it was. Lunch was definitely amazing on this day. Would recommend again 10/10.
