The place was very nice, the food was not the best but still good. Price is a little high and you can tell that it is not a place to go on a budget.

we've had the privilige of having lunch and dinner on several occasions in the Isla Verde restaurant and we can absolutely recommend it! Good food, nice and efficient staff. In the kitchen rules Mother, who keeps an eye on the preparations according to high quality standards and every Saturday she goes to the market to buy all vegetables and ingredients. Freshness equals quality and is so typical for good Chinese cuisine. Kindness, good service and excellence of the food are the major assets of this restaurant !

I have some Dietary Health Needs (I.E No MSG, No Garlic, No Onions, No Cauliflower, Etc) & the Owners Specificaly Catered To My Needs Every Time With a Personal Touch & they make Breakfast as well.

They are Tri-Lingual (Or more, Perfect English Which Helps immensely.

They Will Always Have My Patronage If I'm in the area - Primarily Due To The Fact Of Being Attended to Personally By The Owners !!

Chinese is generally a disappointment in San Jose.. Isla Verde offers higher quality than other Chinese restaurants in the area. I often eat here for lunch. They have various lunch specials that make it a decent value. I also use them for carry out and the quality is slightly higher than the others in the area. Get the chili oil if you like it spicy.

I went to have lunch with my mother because my sister said she went there like 5 years ago and it was good, however, it wasn´t really what she described. I had the fried pork in orange sauce served in a fried "canasta" (basket) the flavor was average but it had a bitter taste at the end (I know this is normal but a good chef should know how to minimize this), the fried "canasta" wasn`t crunchy as it´s supposed to be. My mom had some sort of shrimp with vegetables and garlic sauce, the flavor was nice but the mushrooms were not fresh, looked like something taken out of a can and the shrimp tasted too strong, like if they were not fresh. I won`t be going back to this place and this is for sure.
