Vegans can find things to eat, our seafood and chicken bland due to communications

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... read more

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.

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

We were walking through Chinatown and looking for some lunch so we stepped in here. Seated right away and there were lots of staff attending to tables. Our water was constantly refilled- it was almost funny how quickly they were there! The food was good and enough to share one entree for the two of us. There was a strong... More

Had tickets to the Wizards play off game and went to Chinatown pre game. Quick to be seated, ordered and food came quickly and very hot. Friendly staff although limited English that made it more authentic. Singapore noodles were nice - spicy and full of curry. I asked for no peppers but still got them. Then I asked for a... More

If you are a vegetarian, then you need to at least try this restaurant once. Lots of vegetarian entree choices - They have a section on the menu with dishes made with vegetarian Chicken, Beef and Pork. I enjoyed the retro atmosphere, the good service and that the price is a good bargain for the area. I can only give... More

Having been let down by a place where we had a reservation we chose this restaurant at random. We're welcomed in, seated immediately and our order was promptly taken. The food was great, our only difficulty was that there was more of it than we could eat. The waitress was great, a little teasing and smiling a lot. The furnishing... More
