On our first night in Pana we arrived on the main strip too late for the street vendors pedalling their souvenirs but just in time for the dinner jackals to try to intice us in for some nasty pizza. Does that ever work? We walked up and down twice and decided the clear winner for something a bit different was this place. Quirky, cool and unpretentious. The girl who served us was so smiley and sweet. The menu was varied but trustworthingly fresh. The little courtyard setting is really cosy and cool and apart from the odd dirty perro there were no unwanted interruptions. This asian restaurant, in Guatemala was playing contemporary jazz music!

All in all this is a very cool little asian place with plenty of charm and plenty of choice. Keep up the good work!

Nice outdoor atmosphere, polite service and a truly one of a kind fusion of Guatemalan and Pan-Asian cuisines. I have plenty to say about the potstickers. Check out my full review here: http://www.addtrocity.com/guat-am-i-doing-with-my-life-part-1-foodtrocity-presents-chinitas/

Great little restaurant with inventive and flavorful food. The potstickers were great as was the Gulai a Malaysian coconut curry - I had mine with shrimp. Highly recommended and reasonable!

We had Chinitas for dinner tonight. Three of us, each got very different dishes but we all enjoyed them quite a bit. Tasty chicken stir fry, tofu fried rice and a noodle dish. With wine it came to about Q230. Service was excellent without the odd ignoring that you sometimes get in Guatemala.

Cosy lounge area with wifi (we're actually here now:)) and varied menu. Good and fresh food, decent prices and big portions. Cool map in the bathroom - a def mind blow! Go here for lunch or breakfast, think it's closed for dinner..
