We were with several couples who came here for dinner, as it was within walking distance from our hotel. The local waiter did not speak English, but my Spanish is passable and we all ordered meals and drinks, afterward each couple got their own bill....More

The 3 of us came here recommended by an Expat that has lived here in CR for quite some time. Supposed to be the Best in SJ. If this is the Best, I’ll do without.

The food is good. The Dim Sum is really good and if they don't have it in the little cars they can prepare it for you. I must say that the place is not very clean and is not a beautiful restaurant. Also the location...More
