I have been to better Chinese vegetarian restaurants, such as Sunflowers in Vienna, VA, but Yuan Fu wasn't bad. Three of the four members of my party liked our food. The only one that didn't had ordered the duck, and the "duck" appeared to be nothing more than chunks of tofu, without any real attempt to make it look, feel,... More

We've going here for many years and we have never been disappointed. Our regular wait person has made recommendations that expanded our repertoire of food choices and she has never been wrong. I asked her what the chefs favorite dishes were and started ordering those as well. I do feel that we get special treatment as we have engaged them... More

I've been dining at Yuan Fu for many years, and the food is consistently great. It's so relaxing to eat somewhere where the entire menu is vegetarian (perhaps vegan?). And the owner is extremely friendly and welcoming.

Over price. Rude service. Foods are ok, nothing special. Came there 3 times, but not anymore. They never change.

Being a vegetarian I always thought I was missing out on some of the nuances of Chinese cuisine, Yuan Fu changes that thanks to help from monks trained in Tibet. The entire menu is vegetarian, despite the names. My personal favorite is the duck hot pot with basil, wonderful!

I have eaten here many times. Staff is friendly, helpful, efficient. Food is great. I have taken many non-vegetarians here who cannot believe that vegan food can be so good! Sizzling Rice Soup is one of my all-time favorite dishes.

Unfortunately that restaurant closd. When we entered Yuan Fu we got a shout from the kitchen "how many?" and when we said "2" someone shouted where we were... More

Background on myself: I am fluent in Chinese, am married to a Taiwanese lady, and have visited the country a few times. I pride myself in knowing what authentic Taiwanese and Chinese food should taste like. In addition, I am a vegetarian. I have been coming to this restaurant for many years. I love it. While there are many restaurants... More

After reading the great reviews online I was excited to try this vegetarian restaurant with co-workers. The food was very good however it was overshaddowed by the rude staff. I can not speak for the entire staff there but two of the women who served and waited on us had attitudes. They were also in a rush and yelled at... More
