Our Story:

And because of destiny, they met...
Who would have thought, over thirty years ago, that a Costa Rican girl wanted to travel to Taiwan to do her university studies? And that, on the other hand, a young Chef from Guangzhow, China, came to know the world and decided to settle his roots in Costa Rica.

That young lady studied International Trade in Taiwan and returned to Costa Rica in 1988, excited and in love with Chinese culture.

That young man saw the opportunity to grow in this country and become a recognized Chef.

Chef Roman, was a strong and determined young man, Chef by profession, having suffered and overcome the troubles of his country. Upon arrival, the language barrier put him through hardships with the immigration police, but his skills helped him get a formal job at the former Royal Garden Hotel.

In 1991, together with another capitalist partner, he decided to venture into the purchasing of a restaurant, contributing his culinary skills as part of the capital.

The good spoon was recognized by the Chinese colony since its inception. Once, in 1994, he attracted the young Denia, who over time, became his wife and companion in this life adventure.

The Don Wang Restaurant (which means King of the East), started with 10 tables. Today, it has 23 tables.

The young couple worked tirelessly the first three years of life together. They only had 3 employees, because they were multipurpose and multifunction. They combined their knowledge and skills and with destiny helped them to find the path they have gone through all these years, delighting thousands of people with their recipes and cultural activities promoted in their restaurant.

Upon entering the restaurant, you can feel the fusion intertwined in the decoration and presentation of the menu and the cooing of the water fountain, which only purpose is to make your senses make you feel transported to a different world, quiet and with an environment full of sunlight and natural air.

Allow yourself a sledge and delight your palate.
