I use this restaurant on Old Georgetown Road quite frequently and that in itself is a recommendation for you to try it. This is not a fancy place, you go there for the food - and the value. It is family run with Mom out front and Father in the kitchen and often one of their teenagers will take your... More

Its a toss up when you dine here. Several visits and I still can't decide what they do best. YOU DON"T GO HERE IF you are Looking for fancy or atmosphere, great service or comfortable surroundings. The kitchen can put out an ambitious list of ingredients in some very interesting combinations. Tried many of the soups. Most were bland and... More

They have the typical Americanized Chinese food, but also have an extensive menu of real Chinese and Taiwanese items. I think this place is easily the best Chinese restaurant in the area. Not expensive, so it pays to be a little adventurous here.

I'm a purist about the Chinese food I eat. I used to eat at North China when they first opened, and after moving away and returning some years ago. We recently went in for dinner, and were dismayed that they gave up most of their dining room space (I can imagine the rent increase!) and the tiny tables are shoehorned... More

Had my first meal at North China restaurant on February 1, 2009, and recommend it highly. Despite the North China name, the menu includes numerous items from Taiwan and Hong Kong. There are many "homestyle" appetizers and dishes listed, too-- it would take numerous visits to work through all the intriguing choices on this menu. Our party of two concentrated... More

The best Chinese food in the region is served at this gem near the heart of Bethesda. I've had Chinese food at restaurants all over the world and the fare here could compete with any of it. It's convenient to shopping and workplaces, and its devoted patrons consist of everyone from stress-out workers seeking an excellent lunch at reasonable prices,... More
