Been several times and is by far one of the best and most authentic Chinese restaurant in Chiriqui. I saw that several people have given bad reviews and this may be because in general, service is a bit lacking in Chiriqui. However, for us service always has been pretty fast. THe Dim Sum Chinese breakfast is very nice. I usually... More

If you go to Nuevo Futuro you may in fact have a nuevo futuro that involves you spending multiple hours getting acquainted with a bathroom toilet seat. All I can say is that this restaurant would not be open anywhere in Canada or the USA unless some major $ were slipped into the pockets of a food safety inspector.

Whole meal came to $35 which covered two drinks, two starters, a main course of sizzling shrimp and an enormous dish of... More

My family and I eat here a lot, mainly because it's one of only a few Chinese food restaurants in town, but also because the prices are reasonable, the food is tasty, and the staff is attentive. If you like Chinese food, given the limited options in David, this is the place to go.

We came in looking for a quick meal and got horrible customer service and barely any food before we just had to leave. We were seated quickly and given water. The server was quick in taking our order but that's where things turned. The food took 15+ minutes and when we got the two small dishes, it was cold but... More

I go to this restaurant at least twice a month for lunch. For starters, compared to many other chinese restaurants, this place is clean! The food is consistent and high quality. One day a week ago, I ordered the Gallina plate with Bok Choy (they call it the comida rapida for some reason) but it is a huge plate with... More

I visited this restaurant this past week for the second time. Earlier, I went for dim sum. The dim sum was good but not hot. I arrived about 11 o'clock and will try again at an earlier time. This past week I went in the evening and had a decent meal. Appetizer was ok and the shrimp dinner was good.... More
