I find the food to be very tasty And the people working there Very friendly But the requirement to have 100 symbols is a pain in the ass

Make yourself a favor and try the fries 🤤! The fusion of flavors is incredible! A couple of friends and I ordered 1 portion of fries with chicken and 1 of rice and it was good enough to share for dinner at home. For the...amount of food the prices are just right. It’s very pleasant to have high quality Asian food to go nearby. Also if you are veggie they have multiple choices or if you are vegan they can modify it to adjust your preferences.More

the food is just ok, it's pricey for the not so great taste. it was close to where we were attending to personal business tho, so hubby and son stopped in. It was quite busy so the wait was a good 25-minutes, still not bad...though. I have a severe onion allergy and the guys ordered all items to be onion-free and specified the allergy (the menu states that they take all allergies seriously) and over-emphasized that no type of onion can be in the food. When they arrived to the hotel, i smelled onion immediately and began to sneeze and my eyes teared up, soon a headache came on. We had to throw all the food out, bc if the guys eat it, i breath their perspiration and breath and i get ill. we had to go grab subway for dinner. what a waste! the following morning we were in Playa Coco again and we ran into the restaurant to explain. the sister of the owner was there and she immediately called the brother and he was kind, apologetic and offered a new order and said "order more food than the first time, get drinks also, and i can even deliver for free" He was very generous. i felt like i never wanted to go back, but we decided to try again and went by for lunch. the sister was gone, so one of 2 gals in the restaurant "helped" us. we only ordered 4 entrees as before (even tho the owner told us to order more than we had), bc we don't feel like taking advantage of people, and grabbed 2 cokes. The restaurant was DEAD when we went in and yet the food took over 40 minutes! The girl taking our order didn't seem to undertand anything, she had to take our order down twice, and then called the owner (?) to figure out how to run it as a no charge, unbeknownst to her, i understand Spanish perfectly and she told the person on the other line that the family with allergy is here and they're ordering A TON of food. Once she hung up, i showed her our receipt and told her that we only ordered 4 entrees as we had the other day. She was pretty rude and seemed annoyed and almost angry that we were getting free food, as if it's coming out of her pay! So we finally get our food and take it to our hotel to eat bc our son was waiting for us and when we open up our entrees, about 3/4 of the boxes were full of rice and and the last 1/4 had the meat and vegetables with little to no taste. we were really annoyed at this point bc we felt that the gals there did that to spite us. The owner did try to make things right but his bad employees made things worse and made this bad situation worse. i reached out via whatsapp and only got an apology, which really doesn't cut it, they can say they have standards, but when nothing concrete backs an apology, it means nothing especially when you have to run out and get another meal to satisfy bc rice is not satiating. the employees need to understand that tourists are the reason they have jobs and the owner has a business bc of tourists, expats, etc., and should hold employees accountable and remind them that customer service is a big deal, and the owner should offer a refund vs a return visit bc unless the owner is there to serve, one cannot guarantee a good experience. So, unless you want to gamble about having ok food or sub-par food, getting ill bc allergies are ignored, and having sub-par service, go elsewhere. The experience was not worth the time spent on typing this review.More

Ordered Orange Chicken. Awful. No orange sauce. Nada. Not 1 drippy drop. No chiles. Just chicken nuggets with gooey breading and underdone rice. Only thing orange was a carrot. And shredded beet. Also ordered fried rice with beef. Beef was tender, but no flavor No...sesame oil, just fried without seasoning. Take a pass. Or you will be dusappointed.More

I heard about Red Panda and I went to try it. Staff was very welcoming and very helpful in all the questions that I had. Timing was perfect at all times of the service, even though they were very busy. I ordered a drink and...a Path Thai, in which quantity and taste was amazing. Can’t wait to go back!!!More

The menu is per bowl which is ok but the food was a bit on the disappointing side when they call it Asian Street food I just expected a bit more

Just noticed this new little restaurant in Las Palmas of Playa del Coco. I had Pad Thai noodles with chicken as “ Take Away.” It was much better than I had expected as I moved to Coco from South East Asia. It was the improbable...combination of “Good, Fast and Cheap” all at once! You owe it to yourself to try this little restaurant out. You will be very pleased that you did!More
