Friendly staff!! We only tried the fried fish, mushroom/greens and Char Sui Bao. The fish was good, the rest was average. The decor is heavy, dim and a tad claustrophobic. Not a place I would recommend, unfortunately.

Lung Fung is a family favorite for my folks and I. Whenever visiting my family in Panama, we make it a point to have family dinners at Lung Fung. The family-run and owned business has existed for over 20 years and remains good in service,...More

I felt my first tremors of trepidation as I walked in – the décor was fake pseudo Chinese (I have travelled in many parts of China and at no time saw this kind of kitsch). The three of us were each given a different menu...More

This is one of the few, or perhaps only, authentic Cantonese restaurants in Central America. Living in Colombia, my wife and I sometimes fly to Panama for a weekend just to eat here. It’s that good. The best time is, of course, Saturday and Sunday...More
