The food is not cheap. Nor is it over the top expensive. What you can count on is the food iwll be FRESH, High Quality, and full of flavor. This gem of a restaurant is run by Chef Kwok, a silver haired hard working man from China. He often comes out to meet his favorite clients some of whom happen... More

Went with a friend who had been there many times. I loved the steamed dumplings, especially with the hot chili sauce. We ordered Moo Shu Pork and it was really good. The order was so big, we even took some home. The spring rolls were not worth ordering, they tasted like the frozen ones. Even with a glass of wine,... More

We had such a hard time finding another go-to Chinese restaurant after our favorite in the area closed. This fit the bill. Excellent flavor in their dishes.

I love this unassuming spot for excellent Chinese food. Chef Kwok is often seen roaming the dining room to check on his favorite old time visitors and the duck is amazing. No need to travel out of the neighborhood for good Chinese food with a casual feel. Drinks aren't skimpy so be sure someone is a designated driver!

Nice food in a pleasant atmosphere. Can get loud. Service can be slow, but when the food comes out, it comes out! Have them serve one dish at a time. You enjoy each dish on its own. Owner comes out to cut up whole, but not half, duck. Nice touch. friendly staff.

If food is the reason for your visit, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Indeed, the decor is so so but the service makes up for it. I would not go as far as others and say it is the best Chinese food in the DMV, but it's clearly value for money; we were surprised by the rather reasonable bill!

I have been coming here for over 10 years and I will never get tired of it!!!! My family and I always take our friends and family here, or eat it for take-out. The owner couldn't be nicer, and many local politicians and celebrities have gone there. I definitely recommend it for anyone who loves chinese food (or even if... More

Not much to say, crispy beef was rubbery not much sauce and on the bland side. Wife's general tso's was the same. Cooked fine but, really not much taste at all. I understand this Americanized Chinese food, buy it doesn't have to be like this.

Good quick service that I cannot fault. Reasonable range of vegetarian options. Chose a tofu dish which was ok, but no more than that, and would have preffered more taste rather than the speed at which it was served.
