We go to this restaurant often, it's large, and can be noisy on weekends but I have yet to find better Dim Sum in San Jose. Most of the other dishes we gave tried have been quite good but I recommend it for its Dim sum.
It is open very late which is great after the theatre since not many places are open at 11 pm even on a Saturday.

The place is elegantly decorated. The food is exquisite. I always come back for the honey glazed Hao Yi ribs. A waiter recommended them in one of my visits and it became my staple favourite there. We ordered that, mapo tofu, different kind of dumplings and steam buns, the stuffed eggplant with oyster sauce was neatly presented. The dim sum is really good, the value is amazing.

Not Hong Kong but definitively the best Chinese food in Costa Rica. Try the dim sum and also the dinner service.
