First time here. Have eaten in the restaurants nearby for years, but never here. My family group of 7 and I came in for a late (3pm) lunch. The place was empty. We were welcomed and seated immediately and with a smile. Our appetizers were numerous, hot and perfectly prepared. Main courses were enough for 2 people. Service was excellent. We will all return to try more dishes soon. No certain why others had a bad experience. Ours was great.

Spring rolls were not spring rolls but most likely fried, frozen egg rolls that were very hard and unpleasant

The main entrees were not much better, greasy, flavorless

And it was expensive on top of everything

I've had some poor meals in my time but this was way up there... Or should I say down there.
In all honesty, a Chinese meal in Costa Rica would never be my first choice but I was spending a stop over night near the airport and the traditional restaurant I wanted to book was closed down so, it was this or pizza... It appears I made the wrong decision.
The spring rolls were made from stodgy heavy pastry containing some kind of processed chopped meat and cabbage, I'd no sooner started dissecting them when my main arrived! The waiter then explained it's what they do in China... Encroyable. I had ordered Kung Pau chicken, a speciality apparently... God it was awful.
Please, if you have ever had even a half way decent Chinese meal... Do yourself a favour and stay well clear. Horrendous!
Still, the tiny creepy crawlies on the table seemed to enjoy it.

I didn't expect much but I have to say the kung pao was awesome - fresh stir fry inside an awesome edible noodle bowl and with some great shrimp dumplings. Could have used more heat but they have some spicy oil on the table which kicked it up a few notches.
