Nice setting, reasonably price semi upscale Chinese food. We have been coming here for years. Better than any other Chinese restaurants in Rockville.

My favorites chinese place. The food is excellent, really good for carry out or eating in. I love their General's chicken. Also, the lettuce wraps are really good.

I have been to several restaurants in the area that serve Dim Sum, I think this was one of the better ones. The carts were adequately supplied with a huge variety. Everything fresh and hot. We thoroughly enjoyed everything we tried. My favorite was a dumpling that had crab and asparagus in it. The service was excellent. The restaurant had... More

I recall going to this place when it was in a small strip mall next door in the 70's to buy wine when I was underage in high school; the good old days! Sunday we went for Dim Sum and I've got to say it was not bad. Fact is, I've been bummed out in a lot of the Dim... More

Had been here several times over the years and it was good. Looked forward to a good experience. Was so very disappointed. Maybe it was an off night. But, there is no excuse for such poor food for all dishes ordered and bad service on a relaively quiet week night. How can a Chinese restaurant mess up egg rolls and... More

I ate lunch at Far East midday on a weekday with a group of mom friends. We had a large party with lots of high chairs. The staff was accomodating to us and it was not too crowded. The food came out quickly and the prices were very reasonable. We ordered pork buns, shumai, shrimp fun, sticky rice, turnip dumplings,... More

Always good food and abundant portions. The service isn't friendly but efficient . Take out is great and always on time . Will go back time and time again.

From the outside the building looks unimpressive but the inside is busy and usually packed. This establishment is known for their dim sum and is a local Asian hot spot. The dim sum is rolled around in carts, so you can see exactly what you’re getting. The downside to this method is it limits the available variety. Regardless, the food... More

Sixteen of us met for dinner on Sunday evening. We made a reservation due to the size of the party. They were ready for us, and we seated promptly. Far East provides a nice traditional menu, and despite our large group, the food was served very timely. Everything was hot and the portions were very good. They added 18% gratuity... More

Came for a special event and the food was surprisingly delicious... The Peking duck was heavenly....crispy and tasty...the chicken was moist and fish was excellent! And the Yee mein/ long life noodles were the kids' faves!
