Sandwiched between another restaurant and the metro police station you will find very tasty food at reasonable prices. Very kid friendly, the server brought over straws with paper birds on them, large menu selections and even traditional Chinese items. The dumplings and spring rolls were hot and crunchy and the soup was tasty. We has a noodle bowl, mushu chicken... More

I've had their chicken with cashew, sweet and sour chicken, and now Szechuan chicken. Perfect! Egg drop soup, or spring rolls, a great starter. Service is top notch.

I was feeling a little 'under the weather' when I last visited here and felt that the only thing that my stomach would handle would be a nice bowl for soup with noodles. I asked the waiter for his suggestion and he said that the pork soup with noodles was just the thing. I was originally going to do the... More

The cuisine here was solid, with fresh ingredients and fine preparation. As Chinese cuisine goes, I would say solid but uninspiring, reasonably priced, and the service is good.

On our trip to D.C. this week we stumbled into Chinatown, and chose the Chinatown Garden because it was pretty full and looked good. Also, it was one of the first restaurants when we came into Chinatown from where we had our hotel (near the White House). To go here was definitely the best foodwise decision that we made during...

The food was good but I definitely expected better from Chinatown. I ordered Orange Chicken and it was good, but not the best I've ever had...could have gotten better from the local restaurant at home. Crab Rangoon was also good, but again pretty average. Service was excellent and the staff was very friendly, our glasses were never allowed to go... More

If you want the traditional Chinese food, ask your server and she'll direct you to what Chinese people really like to eat. Her suggestions were great and we had a great dinner. Should have came back here again during our trip in DC. Price was decent, and close to Metro.

My family and I decided to stop here due to the Vegetarian options provided on the menu. The waitress rushed our order, she didn't considered for us to make substitutions, drinks were wrong, food was sloppy, table was dirty, and the broccoli was frozen.

We chose this place because it wasn't crowded. We thought the food was very good; my Maitai was especially great. To my pleasant surprise, they were playing some old soul/r&b music. Reading some of the other reviews, I'm glad I didn't have to use the restroom. A bad restroom would've totally killed my vibe!
