Delicious... but I just came to leave you a copy of the menu because nowhere on the internet is available and is needed :)

I ate this, and is amazing: 06. Arroz en vapor envuelto en hoja de loto con lechón asado estilo HK

This is a wondrful addition to San Jose's restaurant scene. Do not be turned away by the very simple facilities. The food is great and a new flavour palette in town. All meals are cooked by the owner and service is done by his wife and one helper. That's it, so the wait might be longer than desired at times. But when the food arrives, you will will see your perseverance gratified. We had gyozas, which wete good, but the chicken skewers were great. We like the the chicken with noodles and the fish balls. You can't miss their signature dish of BBQ pork. The prices are a steal, about half what you pay at other restaurants.

Very good place to go in San Jose Downtown.

Authentic HK food at a good price to.

Downsides: service took almost 1hrs from order time to have the plates on our table.
You need to park on the street and during working days this represents a nightmare.

First of all I would have to warn the reader of this review not to get misled by the dingy looking place Coconut is. This hole in the wall is by far one of the best Chinese restaurants in Costa Rica. Unlike many asian places, Coconut has a small menu but what it lacks in variety it definitely surpasses in quality. I would say the reason for this modest array of dishes is their absolutely amazing BBQ pork which is the star of the menu. The chef knows it, everyone who has visited Coconut knows it and there is no need to add more dishes when this one solely does the trick. The BBQ pork can be served in two main styles: noodle soup or on a bed of rice in a Lotus leaf. If you are a fan of dumplings go ahead and start your meal with an order of those and then move on to the pork. You won't regret it!

This place is by far the most imaginative and truly Chinese and Asian restaurant in Costa Rica. Half of all customers are Chinese themselves. Super recommended.
