No American style Chinese food here. This is the real deal. A small cozy restaurant that serves fantastic food. Cooked quickly and come immediately to your table piping hot. Get the roast pork and watch the guy cut it up with the meat cleaver. The roast pork, the shredded pork fried noodles, the cod and tofu hotpot, the congee soup,... More

Heard so much about this place from friends and it did not disappoint. The beef brisket rice plate is unbelievable. The meat is so tender that it melts in your mouth. Hong Kong style wanton soup and noodles is also very nice, so is the BBQ pork dishes. Definitely a hidden gem. Best of all, this place is cheap.

We like coming here for shrimp wanton noodles, beef noodle soup, congee and many more. Its always packed. Staff are friendly. We buy more than we could eat in house and take the rest home.

Full Key's been around for over 20 yrs, but still remains as popular as ever. That's due to the good food, esp. the BBQ stuff hanging in the windows and fast, efficient service. I always get the simple stuff here: congee, chow fun, BBQ meats, and they usually don't disappoint. Parking is a hassle though since the lot is very... More

Walked into an empty restaurant yesterday and received no attention from any of the staff. As I was peering through the menu a roach crawled over the page. No thanx.

This is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. You know it is good because so many Chinese can be seen eating here. I recommend the roast duck or pork.

I stood by the door for 10min, no one came so I went to the register, 2 employees passed by me and didn't even say hi or please wait much less acknowledge my presence. And when my husband asked 'do we order here', an old lady said very sharp and rudely 'give me a moment.' We simply left. Worst Chinese... More

We went there after not going there in several years since there are so many restaurtants in the Wheaton area. We order the soy chicken, roast duck, snow pea leaves and each of us had a Hong Kong noodle soup with dumplings. It was fantastic! We slurped and chewed our way thru most of it and were quite satisfied with... More

Nothing to get excited about here. Very average neighborrhood place. We went to lunch here a few days ago. I ordered Szechwan tofu. It was a large serving, with sauce that seemed bland, like it came from a can. My companion had Shrimp with Broccoli - small shrimp, same bland type of sauce.. No liquior license either.
