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

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.

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.

A local Chinese business owner recommended this place for the most authentic Chinese food in Chinatown, and they didn't disappoint! I'm not sure how Chinese their signature drink was (the Zombie), but it was plenty boozy! All the food after that was great!

Whatever issues others had, I can say I very much enjoyed my Noodle soup with Roast Duck. I even got this take out. The people were nice, gave me a bottle of water just while I was waiting, and the wait was not even that long. I would certainly go back

Friendly service and great food. Best Chinese food since San Francisco. We ordered the triple something with asparagus (chicken, beef, & shrimp) steamed rice and vegetable lo mien. We also ordered the steamed meatballs as an appetizer. If I was home I would have licked the plate. Doesn't look like much from the outside and we were actually looking for... More
