We asked someone on the street where to eat and he said LaFlor de Loto was the best Chinese food he'd ever had and we totally agree. Huge portions and everything was so fresh and tasty.

The taste is clearly catered to the Costa Rican taste, could not even find waiters/waitresses that spoke the language. Menu was in spanish/english. They offered typical fare that would probably satisfy most non-chinese... More

We walked here based on prior reviews. We went in and asked if I could have something vegetarian. The waiter was very nice and told me that could make fried rice with vegetables and no oyster sauce.

Very nice people that work here and very GREAT FOOD!!!! Get the special fried rice and you will see LARGE chunks of meat, instead of the small pieces that we see here in the United States.
