Delicious food

I tried dim sum for lunch and traditional dinner. Both of them are tasty. I like the dim sum better as it has more choices from the Contonese cuisine. The dinner menu is a combination of select dishes from various Chinese cuisines, so it might be appealing to people who like to sample Chinese... read more

On a Friday noon I met with two friends I did not see long time, so we looked for a quiet place that we would be able to talk. We order the food, each one choose a different dish. It took some time until the food arrived but since we were not in a hurry we had a nice conversation... More

Had been patronizing Far East for years until last weekend when a really unfortunate incident took place. My kids found a hair in one of the dishes we ordered so we stopped eating it and set it aside, about half eaten. When we finally got the attention of the inattentive waiter (in a nearly empty restaurant) to clear the table,... More

We celebrated our mother's birthday here and Far East did an excellent job from start to finish. They put together two round tables to accommodate all fifteen of us in a nice corner location. Our server was prompt and courteous and did a fine job in taking everyone's order (appetizers, drinks and entrees). The food came timely, was hot and... More

Our office has weekly lunches and Far East is an office favorite and go-to mostly every week since our President was treated to lunch here a couple years ago. He loves their Chicken with Cashews. Other staff always love whatever they order and they have sampled most of everything by now. Faves are: pepper steak , cheng tu beef, yu-shiang... More

We ordered some common dishes, steamed pork dumplings, moo shi chicken, gen changs chicken, chicken with pea pods. All was brought out shortly after we ordered. The food was ok, nothing special. Portions were generous. Tea complementary (?) The bill was written in Chinese, so it was virtually impossible to decipher if not a native. Make sure you remember the... More

We found this restaurant by accident while out one night driving in Rockville and looking for something different than our usual spots. We've liked it some much that we've been back several times since. The food is nothing fancy, just solid delicious Chinese food. We especially like the vegetable dumplings and the General Tso's Tofu is fantastic. The restaurant is... More
