Mostly vegan, some things with egg. The family that owns and runs the restaurant and also runs the adjacent guesthouse (approx. $30US/ night). Chow mein noodle, drinks with tapioca boba bubbles, soymilk made in-house, and more. Note: might charge you $1BZ (50 cents US) for sharing food and unlike most small eateries in Belize, this restaurant does add tax to the bill. Best time to go is around lunch time when they have more available options. Has air conditioning. Price: Inexpensive more-less

Bad customer service

Posted on 02 / 23 / 2014

The food was good and a welcoming change for vegans but their customer service was horrible. She was rude and dismissive. Wish the service cud match the food

Cons: Bad service

The first review had it right. The food is tasty, especially the chow mein. Recommend. We ate there, and then came back again the next day. No where else we ate in Belize was as good.

The place is very inexpensive. The choices are carb-heavy. The decor is simple, not fancy. Having children take your order is adorable too. One time we tried to come but they closed at 4:30pm.

Pros: tasty food, inexpensive, good portions
Cons: not fancy

Friendly family-owned restaurant

Posted on 09 / 19 / 2011

Nice little place in Belize to get some veggies in your diet. The Chinese food is a welcomed contrast to the rice and beans a vegetarian gets by with in the country. The Taiwanese family that owns the restaurant will most likely be hanging out in the dining area, keeping cool with the A/C and watching Taiwanese television. they are super friendly and really helped me out one night when I needed a favor, letting me use their computer and even gave me a ride somewhere when it was dark out. Definitely recommend hitting up this place if you're hungry. Best time is during lunch hours when they have more available menu options. They also have boba/bubble drinks with the tapioca balls!

Pros: Oriental food, Clean, good portions
Cons: Extra fee for sharing
