“Very nice, traditional Chinese Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

What i like about the Far East is the atmosphere. Very large mature Jade plants in the front and a Koi Pond. Also, round tables. When you have a group of people together it is great to be able to see and talk to everyone. Long tables just can't pull that off.
The drinks and dinner were all delicious.

“Get the shrimp dumplings - you won't regret it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I went here three times within a month - that should say how much I like it. The dim sum is excellent. You can get it on weekdays too but it just doesn't come around on a cart (you order it off a menu). The restaurant is clean and spacious on the inside and is on more than one floor - although I have only recently sat on the bottom floor. The fried taro is awesome, as are the shrimp dumplings and radish cake! I brought some friends and they all went back separately with their families within the same week. That's how good it is!

“Excellent Chinese Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have tried many different Chinese Restaurants, in Gaithersburg, Germantown, and some in Rockville. Having said that, I found that the food at Far East Restaurant, is superior to most places that I have tried. Fantastic server, prompt service, and great atmosphere, will keep us coming back to this restaurant.. If you haven't tried it, then you should try it for sure.. You won't be sorry that you stopped there, and mos likely will become a regular customer.

“Bland dishes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Three of us shared dishes for lunch today. While I normally don't add salt, I had to add salt to my broccoli. The orange chicken wasn't spicy at all and the chicken and cashews was just mediocre.
