Typical fare

The service was decent and friendly. They did not try to charge for tip on receipt. The bathrooms were ok. The food was typical Chinese fare, the prices were average. Not a bad choice for convenience, but not for specifically traveling out of the way for.

Walking up and down Chinatown for a bite to eat after work we walked into this restaurant, and we should have walked straight back out. The TV was on! Food was average and the service was average - and we were given rice we didn't order. However, the shredded beef stood out and we had plenty of it.

I gave it 4 stars for service. They provided separate checks for a large group. The menu is extensive and the food is good. The food is hot when it arrives, and is always accurately delivered. The staff is efficient, friendly and accommodating.

I would give this restaurant 0/5 stars is there was such thing. As this restaurant was packed with people, I thought this place was going to be good; but was I EVER WRONG. Everything on the menu was a little bit overpriced for the quality of food that I received. The only thing that they didn't mess up on was... More

My son and I went to this restaurant in January, 2015 in D.C.'s Chinatown. We ate about 6 pm and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. The food was wonderful. I had a noodle soup bowl and my son had General Gau's chicken (his favorite).Good spring rolls. I enjoyed the variety of choices on this menu and this restaurant... More

Hubby and I had a bite to eat at the Chinatown Garden while passing through D.C. overnight. We were seated right away even though the restaurant was crowded. I had wonton soup and he had a spring roll, both were delicious. The hot tea was good. We shared a huge plate of roast pork fried rice and the Orange chicken,... More

Stopped here without reading reviews first. The food was very good, much better than Chinese restaurants back home. However the service was quite slow and even a little rude.

Always good chinese food. I stick with my standard of beef and broccoli and always ask the chef to make it spicy for me. They also have probably the best hot chinese mustard for the spring rolls I've ever tasted.

this was a pretty typical Chinese place. Food ok, all of the basic Chinese fare, but not worth going out of your way for. Convenience of the metro was the reason we went.
