“No fancy red velvet dragons here, just good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We chose this place because we were hungry for Chinese food and because of the reviews. We were not disappointed. The place feels as though one has just walked in off a street in Peking. No fancy red velvet dragons here! (The only attempt at "decor" is a calendar from a Chinese wholesaler.) But the food is truly delicious and the value is just great.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

You would never know it from walking by or walking in, but the food here is delicious. We were pretty hesitant based on the way it looked and the fact that no one was in there, but we learned that people are just missing out. It's a mom and pop shop and they are very friendly and the food is fresh. I would love to eat there again!

“Order to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Food was awesome, just as the other reviews stated. Good prices for DC. The inside is small and poorly decorated. Service was alright, but a bit awkward with communication challenges. Recommend placing order to go for enjoyment in your own setting.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Don't judge a book by its cover, go and try it. The food is GREAT! Went looking for somewhere to eat and found this place. Me and the family was hastened about going in but we went in anyway even after we order my wife was thinking about walking out but we stayed and had one of the best meal. It's not fancy or expensive, its great food and affordable.

“I found the perfect hole in the wall Chinese restaurant!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Great food, very affordable, generous portions, prompt service, cooked while you wait. I don't like eating at chain restaurants, I can eat at them anytime I want to. I move a lot (thanks to the military) so I love to find the great local/mom and pop/hole in the wall local restaurants. Only drawback is the restroom, as with most dives the restroom has a lot to be desired. However even with this factored in, I'll be eating at this restaurant as much as possible during our stay in DC.
