The food was excellent. You could tell everything was fresh and the service was excellent. The prices were very reasonable.

Mi Chayito recently has moved even closer to us than it was before: right next to Hotlel JB on the road to La Ropa... and that's great because I can pick up Chinese or Mexican takeout from just around the corner or just as easily eat it at the restaurant. I've always enjoyed Mi Chayito's food and have followed it... More

We had dinner three times during our three week visit You can order family style or by a combination number meal. Every time we were there it was consistently good. Pad Thai said it was one chili and I found it to be good but not spicy. Sweet and sour pork very tender and tasty. Fried rice was not dry... More

We ate here several times over a 3 week period and always had a good experience. The downside is it's a little out of town and on the highway to Playa La Ropa. But it is clean, friendly, and their chile relleno stuffed with shrimp is to die for. Great breakfasts as well.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Zihu, Mexico. They have Mexican, Chinese and Canadian items on their menu. My favorite is the Chinese... Abel is the owner, he speaks good English and the food is great... I can't wait to get here every year so I can have the Shanghi Chicken... It's a very clean place... More

We had s&s pork (just like home) shrimp and veggie tempura which came with a light brown sweet dipping sauce. Ginger beef which was not breaded nor deep fried but full of veggies and very tender. Quick efficient service and although my spouse always carries his own salsa de soya they had some! With rice and two beer a reasonable... More

Mi Chayito has operated for ages inside the Hotel Real de la Palma, near the end of Escenica la Ropa (the main road behind Playa la Ropa), and has opened a second location a bit closer to town near Hotel JB. They have only been open a couple of weeks so far we were told. They're open for breakfast, lunch... More

Had several meals here, as I was stayng at the adjoining hotel (Real La Palma). The food was wonderful each time (both breakfast and Dinners). They have quite a lengthy menu for dinner that includes several Chinese Selections as well as standard Mexican fare. The staff is great -- they even put on a little extra for my little birthday...
