A basic Chinese Restaurant, just a few blocks from the center of town, they seem to do more take away than table service. We had heard about their pork chops and steamed vegetables so gave it a try, it went down quite well with a couple of adult icy cold beverages. Recommend it for a change of taste, but nothing...

That's a weird name for a Chinese restaurant, isn't it? We stayed at Martha's and this place was right across from Marthas and probably the only place open during the holidays. We ordered carryout twice and it was fairly decent. The portions were good.

Had a lunch on our first day in San Ignacio and we didn't come back again. The food was not nice, loud music inside, which prevents you to have conversation, rowdy characters having drinks and creating a ruckus inside. Not a picture of a great restaurant for families. Not Recommended at all.

I always get great service and my food is always made the way I like it - the owner, wife and daughter are welcoming and listen to your choice of meal even when you want your favourite dish prepared to suit you. My husband and I love going especially - especially about 1 pm, I am always welcome, even minutes... More

Food was average, the people at the table next to us complained about a bug in there food. No AC in the restaurant. Only good thing was they have a TV where we got to watch the Olympics.

If you like your food shortly after ordering it and are good to go with fried chicken then this is the place for you.

We asked about the best Chinese food in town and were directed here. They have a take-out window and sit-down dining. Food was fast and hot and tasty... good prices too.
