We stopped in during our family trip to DC as we were already at the nearby National Portrait Gallery. We walked in the restaurant and we’re the only folks there. Pretty soon, it started to get full and several call in orders started coming. We...ordered the crispy beef, sweet & sour chicken, and orange chicken. The crispy beef was really good, unlike anything we’ve had before. Service was fast. Definitely hit the spot after a long day walking the National mall!More

This rating is for the duck noodle soup. As another Yelper suggested, get the smaller menu with the noodles. Love the generous amount of duck they have in their soup. Otherwise, everything else is a three (or less). The location is gritty, evidenced by the...folks lingering outside, and the service is mediocre to bad, especially if you don't speak the language. However, this place has been here for a long time and I respect that. Prices here haven't changed much, so if you're looking for decent food and not concerned with ambiance, stop by here.More

I used to frequent this place at least once a week and have been trying to come back the last few times I was in the area. I finally made it and I got my closure. It was not as good as it used to...be. Pandemic, change of owners or whatever it is. The flavors are no longer there and neither is the menu they used to have. It’s good food but not worth the extra mile. If you are in the area and are craving some Chinese food go ahead. Had wonton soup. Kingdom pork chop and fish tofu casserole. All ok!More

Many places come up short on carryout when you get home and see what you got. So Full Credit to Full Kee with my experience. There are 3 legs to this culinary stool: the broth (most important) the topping and the noodles. When they are...all good, this is real comfort food, even to this non-Asian and FK nailed it.More

We are returning to restaurants we patronized before COVID. DC's Chinatown was mostly empty on a summer Saturday evening. Some restaurants in the area were gone, and Full Kee didn't have many patrons. But the food was just fine and the service was the same....We had old favorites, but the standout dish was a General Tso's cripsy tofu. We would eat that again any time.More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Go- Now!! I drove around Chinatown a bit and glad I was attracked to this gem. The food was superb. The lady working was so nice and warm . The restaurant had plenty of room inside but I'm not...sure if there is dine in. Looks like a nice place to throw a dinner or lunch party. I'm from Chicago and we have great Chinese food but This Full Kee is definitely 5 star. Food & Service. Had roast pork, rice, appetizers, noodles, vegetables. YUMMore

The sesame chicken and chicken lo mein were to die for. This food was delicious in every sense of the word. Also, you can feel safe dining in as the tables are socially distanced. We would highly recommend this place.

Christmas day metro to Chinatown. Orders dumplings which was blend (no taste). Mongolian need had chucks of ginger - if you don’t like to bite into chunks of ginger, I’d avoid this dish. Chicken Schazuan was decent but not sure if we’d go back.

The Full Kee was nothing special. First the appetizers. The dumplings were huge and I mean huge. Of the three, two were over cooked and the other under cooked; they were not tasty but just soggy and gray. My wife ordered an egg roll; it...came 5 minutes after the dumplings and was over cooked—-honestly I never knew one could burn an egg roll. The main dishes were very large; we could have ordered one plate to share. As with the appetizers there was no real taste that one expects with Pan Pacific Rim food. There was no alcohol served and, a real first, there was no tea. We should have looked at other places as there were many restaurants close by. There must be better Chinese restaurants as the Full Kee just was not that good. Will not return nor recommend to friends.More

We needed a meal pronto before an event was starting. They did a great job of taking our order and having our food to us in five minutes. The food itself was tasty in that classic Chinese restaurant way.

This was recommended by our hotel but was mediocre. The seafood had no flavor. The dumplings were oily. The vegetables were good. No advice on what to order

You have to choose your dishes very carefuly as some are excellent while others are rather poor. The best opener is the shrimp dumpling without noodles. The stir fry eggplant is really deep fried and is oily and mushy. The string beans are OK if...you tell the waitress that they should be stir fried with little oil. The snow pea pods can be quite good but very inconsisitant - one time it is superb while another time it is chewy and tasteless.. If you like duck, the version here is quite good.More

We were all very excited to go there as it had been recommended. Unfortunately it was not good at all. Dishes with chicken hardly had any chicken, the seafood fried rice had little seafood. We had to go find staff as they made no effort...to visit our table. Thumbs down.More

The service was mediocre at best. Actually it wasn't even that good. The restaurant is not very clean. The food was pretty good. However the shining star of the Full Kee is there hot and sour soup! The soup truly was delicious. We paid our...bill left a cash tip and were told by the waitress it was not enough of a tip. Talk about awkward! Instead of walking out we gave her 3 more dollars which ended up being 18% tip for poor service with glasses of water as a beverage.More

No. Stairs to go to the down stairs dining room are difficult; only a few stairs (1-2) to enter building.
