While staying at the nearby Omni Shoreham hotel, we ordered Egg Drop Soup, Chicken Fried Rice, Mongolian Beef, and General Tso's Chicken, and it was all fantastic. The whole family - especially the kids - loved it. They even loved the snow peas and are asking for us to get them again soon! A definite notch above your typical Chinese... More

Mr. Chens advertises itself as organic but the menu qualifies that it is "organic dependent upon availability." We stopped by for lunch and were the only people in the small walk-down spot the entire time. The portions were small, no substitutions were allowed, (even the most simple, pasta for rice), and the quality was just so-so. I have had better... More

Had a very good meal for two, starters then mains of chicken and beef stir fry including rice or noodles and 3 beers.Good service with a smile and nice food which was not too salty. Not a fancy place but it has an excellent selection of menu options and includes a take-away service. The price just $50 for very large... More

The food wasn't the best Chinese I've ever had, but it was tasty, quick and the prices were good (the dinner special includes an entree, spring roll and soup for $11.99).

Ordered delivery to the Omni Shoreham Hotel, where I was staying. Loved the menu options (including my preferred brown rice); vegetarian spring rolls were very tasty; and my made-to-order spicy shrimp and vegetables meal was generous and definitely hit the spot. Particularly loved the fast delivery; I think it was no more than 15 minutes! Would definitely order there, again.

I was in DC with 4 kids with 4 different pallet preferences so I was on the scout for a place to get food for us all. We decided on this little place because of the billboard which was a copy of an article raving about this fantastic little secluded, well-priced, place. I'm not sure what made it "organic"? I...

I have been eating here for 15 years. It's nothing fancy at all, but for basic Chinese food for a reasonable price it's your best bet in upper NW.

The delivery took 90 minutes to arrive, and we weren't all that far from the restaurant. By the time it got here, the wontons in the soup were soggy, and everything was just sort of warmish. Both the kung pao and the veggie spring rolls had a distinct and unpleasant vinegar flavor. And they didn't include any utensils or napkins,... More

This restaurant was in walking distance from my hotel (the Omni), and was a nice little find. Everything was reasonably priced, especially for the amount of food you receive. They also have really good dinner deals; you get an entree, spring roll, rice and soup for ~$11.00. It is good quality food, much better than anything fast food.
