Upon arriving at the restaurant I was not impressed. I was even less impressed upon entering. The decor was beyond dated and the atmosphere was lacking. Moreover there was a stale smell in the air that I concluded was produced by the very old air conditioning unit they had standing near our table. So... going on looks alone the place... More

One of the best Chinese restaurants as far as food goes in Managua. Visit for dinner because the restaurant is not pretty during the day, but at night the lanterns make a romantic setting. They have an aquarium with koi in murky, dingy water. I sit at tables where I can't see it. I visited once after lunch and it... More

I ate lunch at this restaurant. It was a little pricey for Nicaragua but it was good. Nothing great but good enough to finish.

William the original owner left for China and his nephew Lee is running the restaurant with the same zeal and politeness. The sweet and sour soup which I have enjoyed for some years is still the best, in my opinion, and the beef with orange was delicious. This is a place to enjoy again and again and today after a...

Sweet and Sour Soup. Orange beef. Spring Rolls, all the basics have been kept at a high level since William left for Guangouz and his nephew Lee took charge. Nothing much has changed, the scant framed art work, the timeless furniture, and the service which does not distinguish which comes first the soup or the entree, but it is clean... More

Great food, a lot of options, they even have Dim Sum! The staff are gracious and friendly. Prices are a little higher, but the owner is Chinese so it is authentic.

We went here for dinner last night as we were staying in a hostel round the corner. Delicious food - we had Szechuan beef and sweet and sour chicken - both we're amazing and reasonably priced. Waiter was always about, attentive and professional, with a smile! Decoration and ambience wasn't anything to write home about, though was ok in a... More

I have been going back since it opened. Also we tried newcomers both expensive and modest but the sweet and sour soup, the steamed wun tun, the whole fish with ginger. beef with orange, are always consistently excellent. A mild attempt has been made to put some pictures on the walls but its not reallly relevant. William the first owner... More
