Nice place, great service

Food was OK, dumplings need further development. Typical Chinese food, vegetables and meat wok. Service is excellent, restaurant owners are constantly checking everything and smiling. I would return if I go to Washington again.

Walked up to Chinatown Gardens from the National Mall area not close but not too far either and well worth the walk. Nice atmosphere quick attentive servers clean white cloth tablecloths. Yummy Mai-tias. Combination fried rice was served quickly and its was good and plentiful. Orange Chicken was delicious. Prices are reasonable. Overall a good place for Chinese I downtown... More

We did enjoy the food, the service was fast. The only thing that I didn't care for was that I found stains on the tablecloth, chairs, and menu. That usually makes me feel that they are not taking care of the place.

Kids loved orange chicken but I sent back my lemon chicken. Tasted old. The service was very good. Took my lemon chicken back and let me get something else. Great location in china town.

Good food and friendly servers. Everything we ordered was excellent. Try the pan fried noodles as well as the pork chops. We were a big group, so they accommodated us by bringing the tables together. We did not like the location of the round table, so bringing the tables together enabled us to sit in the middle of the restaurant.

We went to the movies and stopped here as my daughter and husband who are vegans like the place. It was a nice looking place and pleasant. However when we picked out a chicken dish and a seafood dish the waiter kept saying spicy and I said not hot, just mild. That went on and it became not spicy as... More

Located at the entrance of Chinatown in Washington DC, this eatery can be considered as a good option for an odd meal if one is visiting The Mall and craving for authentic oriental cuisine for a change. Food is tasty, ambiance passable, service alright, price reasonable.

Rancid food, horrible service, and extremely overpriced. Took the waitress forever (and 3 times we asked) for her to bring our drink orders. Then we asked her if we should order a couple of dishes to share (there were 5 of us) or if portions were small enough for one... she laughed like we were idiots and told us everybody... More

We ordered food form both sections of the menu and several appetizers. We enjoyed all the dishes!!! We had the table in the window, it was raining very hard and people were running in the streets...reminded me... More
