Food was ok but they seemed unwilling to please! Also charged extra for white rice. We found that odd. When the bill came one price was higher by a dollar and they said the price went up. They removed the dollar. Also a 10% holiday surcharge for New Years Day. Never heard of that. Just not a warm and friendly... More

The place is small, but the food is great. You have to try the "Puerquito frito especial" (special fried pork), also recommendes is the mustard leaves in garlic sauce, peipa taofu and chiken with chinese mushrooms. The decoration is plain, but the food will surprise you.

I have been to many Chinese restaurants and I must say that by looking at this one I did not have high expectations. The restaurant itself is way too sober and would do great if they just hired an interior decorator to create some ambiance. The food seems pricey but when you get it served you realize that you are... More

Who knew I would have the best Chinese food ever in Panama. Went with a close family friend who works in the city. The special pork and octopus where to die for. Perfect price for the meal and wait staff was very attentive.

This place has the best Asian food in Panama. There are unique dishes such as Speciality Pork, Sizzling Beef, and their very unique Flower Fish. Service is excellent and remember each dish is prepared from scratch; no microwaved frozen.

First time to visit and very impressed. We ordered four dishes and they were all excellent. The facility is modest in a strip shopping center. No alcohol is offered. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly.

I have eaten Chinese in good restaurants in NY, Hong Kong, Beijing, and many other capitals, and this was without any doubt one of the best experiences I ever had. The location is very basic, with minimum amenities and not an expensive atmosphere. But the food and the service are extraordinary. They use exquisite ingredients like tea leaves, honey, fresh...
