Amazing pad Thai and French toast (in Xela??!!). Not your best choice if you're in a rush for dinner but the owners are great to talk to (he from Wash State, she a Guatemalan who did Canada World Youth). Love the Japanese art and windows overlooking the street.

Thank you for your review, we love what we do and it is an amazing feeling to have people liking it. We are still being challenged by the time-quality relationship, we strive to provide fresh veggies cooked at the moment and not frozen ones. We're still learning. Good luck on all your plans! :) More

We were craving for Asian food and were recommended this place by our accomodation. This place certainly did not disappoint, we went here twice during our 4 days stay in Quetzaltenango. We definitely loved their chicken pad thai and their massive burritos. We were so full and satisfied at the end our meal. The owner is so friendly and accommodating.... More

I've visited La Esquina Asiatica on several occasions and the staff is always really sweet and attentive and the food is of great quality to a great price. I also really like the dining room; spacious and airy and on the second floor, which takes you away from the hustle and bustle on the street. Last time I tried the... More

Great place in central Xela serving really tasty, affordable asian cuisine. We had the dumplings and tofu stir fry and were very happy with both. Service was excellent, but we were also the only patrons dining at the time so that is to be expected. We would have definitely gone back again but it was closed the next night. Do... More

We went here for a friends birthday dinner and the food was great! Many vegetarian and vegan options. Even gave us a free yummy dessert with a candle for our friend with the birthday!! Highly recommended for anyone looking for some good Asian fusion!

We were with a weaving tour staying nearby at Posada Catredral. A leader saw the restaurant so a group of us had dinner. Many had pad thai - tasty! A large group had come in ahead of us, but the owner was fantastic - he made sure we had drinks and kept us posted on when our dinners would be... More

The restaurant is led by the owners of the Casa Seibel, a hostel nearby. After travelling through all over Central America, this is the best asian food we tasted so far. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is really friendly. I highly recommend this place!
