Full Key is by far my favorite Chinese food in Maryland. No thick sugary American style food here. A dinner portion of the house wonton soup is an amazing meal. I had no point of reference before trying this soup. I highly recommend the Peking chicken. My only knock is no beer or wine served.

Have had both lunch and dinner at Full Key for over 4 years and have enjoyed every item consumed by me, and the service has been as great as the food - appetizers, soups, and entrees.

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
