I came for the first time to this restaurant seven years ago. I came back yesterday, just to confirm that the food is still excellent. When you ask about this place, most people living here would tell you it is expensive but good. I tend to disagree: I think for the quality you are getting, the price is fair, or even cheap.
Great place when you want to do a special dinner in Cartago.
Not your typical Asian restaurant in Costa Rica: Variety is great.

A good friend is in the pest control business locally. Of ALL the chinese restaurants in the whole area, this is the ONE that she recommends. When they make their inspections/treatments (as all restaurants need) this is the ONE that is very CLEAN and takes cleanliness seriously.
This is a huge complaint from the locals about Chinese restaurants in the area, bugs....yuck!
If you hate unclean kitchens, then apparently, this one shares your distaste for bugs.
Good enough in my book. I'll be going here and likely nowhere else!

A little expensive by Costa Rican standards, the Thai food is excellent and the service is great. An excellent place to stop after visiting the Cathedral in Cartago.

There are lots of Chinese restaurants all around Costa Rica but this one is definitely worth seeking out if you are tired of gallo pinto,mystery meats, rice and fried plantains. This place has an atmosphere suitable for a business luncheon, quiet and tasteful, with a varied and tasty menu. Chef Javier Wong Cheng uses authentic Chinese ingredients that he buys at the Chinese market in San Jose, keeping to the traditions of his culture, rather than creating a boring hybrid as so often happens with ethnic restaurants far from their native soil. The Chinese came to Costa Rica to build the east-west railroad, which is why you'll find them scattered across this nation.
