Very Good For Vegetarians

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... read 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

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

We entered this "restaurant" and were greeted with an awful smell, we were seated and everything was a bit... grubby. Good thing I'm an indecisive eater because shortly after we heard scurrying above us! Not sure what it was but it was alive and ran across the ceiling above. Safe to say we paid the check and didn't dare to... More

I hate rude people especially when I'm just looking for a good meal. Very disappointed as the waitress had a terrible attitude and didn't like to be asked any questions. Removed plates and napkins and had to ask back for the napkins. Soups had no taste, beef was all fat with arteries and veins. Left 70% uneaten and went to... More

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
