The one we visited was in Plaza Minarete, NOT in Playas This is a Chinese immigrants owned restaurant, but it is everything but a Chinese restaurant, it is their take on Mexican food. It is actually not that bad, In fact, I would return. They serve coffee, in the style as Mexico City's Café con Leche, they pour a little... More

Been a few times to this restaurant. It's rather hidden inside Plaza Minarate, an unassuming shopping center whose biggest store is a Sam's Club.

Not... More

I recently took my daughters back to Laihoo's for the second time in a few months. The first time a dear friend from TJ took us. Unfortunately for the second visit, we didn't have the restaurant name, nor address, nor anything other than gut instinct. We drove and pieced together the turns and found it again. We almost gave up... More
