This restaurant has a reputation for great food. Even served a dish to the China Premiere. It is in an unlikely location attached to a Days Inn in NE DC. The food is 'authentic' in that it is not americanized and the food is prepared...More

I've enjoyed eating here over the last 2 years. Cool story about how they opened and legitimate Chinese food. Looking forward to another no frills lunch.

Panda Gourmet specializes in Sichuan and Shaanxi cuisine. I had a Saturday lunch there. Wontons in chili oil were a piquant tasting appetizer. Fish and silken tofu in hot chili oil was appropriately spicy and numbing. Portions were very sizable. Service was pleasant and efficient....More

First visit to DC looking for a good Chinese restaurant. The reviews said this was the place in DC to go. It was a pretty long taxi ride from downtown. Great chance to get into a debate about politics with the taxi driver. But it...More
