This is an amazing restaurant and very popular with the Kosher crowd in Rockville/Bethesda/Potomac. My mother is a Chinese vegetarian, not vegan and she loves this place. They have a chopped braised tofu dish with roasted pine nuts, to be wrapped in fresh lettuce.. very yummy! They call their... read more

Love this family operated little restaurant. This is by far the only vegetarian place i would go to for Chinese style vegetarian meals in DC metro area. They serve REAL vegetarian. We love the "fish" which has to be pre-order and they don't do that often since that's literally an art. I also went there several times at lunch time,... More

Our family has loved Yuan Fu since it opened. We used to dine there every couple of weeks. However, in the past few years, we've found ourselves going there less and less often. The menu hasn't changed in years -- maybe ever -- and although the food is good and the service exemplary, we have begun to find the unchanging... More

This is THE go-to vegan Chinese restaurant in the metropolitan DC area. The food is super-delicious, reasonably priced, and always served with a smile. We often bring our non-vegetarian friends to Yuan Fu, and they are amazed at the creative cooking that pleases meat-eaters and non-carnivores alike. Mary, the owner/hostess, is a delight - and makes every customer feel like... More

I am always on the look out for Vegan/Vegetarian food. It is nice to have no meat once in a while, less calories, and more healthy. Found this one recommended by the Washington Post from 2013. The review seems to suggest that it was impossible to tell the difference between real meat and the vegan alternatives served here. I went... More

It is not easy to find a reasonably priced restaurant near Bethesda, and Yuan Fu was not only reasonable, the food was quite good and very inventive. We are not vegetarians, but our friends who live nearby are and recommended this. We went on a Saturday night around 7 pm and grabbed the last remaining table (reservations only taken for... More

We have been enjoying great meals at Yuan Fu since it opened. We keep kosher (though the food is GOOD regardless) so we can eat to our hearts content here with nary a bit of pork or shellfish. The food is consistently good, service is attentive and it is a spotlessly clean restaurant. The Lunch Box special (3 items for... More

This little place is not fancy, but the food is amazing. We arrived just before 9pm and were warmly welcomed. It is clearly a family-run reataurant. Child friendly. Great moo shoo dish and tasty fried wonton appetizer. Great prices and attentive service. Very kind people.

We are long-time regulars at Yuan Fu and the quality and value have not diminished over the years. We recommend Yuan Fu to anyone looking for a great Chinese restaurant, a meat alternative restaurant, or both. The menu is available as take-out as well.

Have been here twice, and the vegan food was so good that I'll go back every single time I have lunch in the D.C. Metro Area. My favorite dish is the Kung Pao Chicken, which somehow tastes like chicken right off the grill. Also of note were the Sizzling Rice Soup, which becomes more addictive the more you eat it.... More
