Ordered Shrimp Curry off American menu. Delicious with ample jumbo shrimp and lots of onions and curry sauce. Light on the peas and carrots, though

We had a lovely dinner there. The six of us tried a variety of dishes, including Peking Duck, and everyone enjoyed their meals. There is dedicated parking behind the restaurant. Will definitely eat there again.

At one point, this place was almost good because of some dishes unique to Northeast China, a cuisine rarely featured in the US. My favorite used to be the fried chive dumpling/pocket. For some reason, the dish is no longer as good.

School Tours of America chose this restaurant for us to bring 28 students and 17 adults for dinner. We arrived at about 7:00pm and were seated immediately. The buffet was ready and the servers immediately began distributing water, flatware, napkins and taking drink orders. Many parents were able to order cocktails as the restaurant has a full bar. The buffet... More

This is a surprising good Chinese restaurant in Arlington. For folks that have work at the National Science Foundation, this is just a few minutes walk (right across from the subway station and the Hilton). In the past I've eaten the lunch buffet here and it is basically the typical Americanized Chinese lunch buffet that is indistinguishable from any other... More

Standard Chinese fare, such as dumplings. The food was not that flavorful, and almost sour. The menu at least offers some vegan options for those interested. The service was not good, and was unwilling to even give a glass of water for a take-out service. Also, the price of $7 for a few small dumplings was a bit too high.

The restaurant offers standard northeastern Chinese food. The prices remain comparable to the area. The food tastes good and the flavor a on the heavier side. Note: the Mandarin and English menus offer different dishes!
