This is my favorite place for vegan chinese food in the DC area. I highly recommend the spicy tofu hot pot (if you like soft tofu). The duck with basil is another favorite. The hot and sour soup is always delicious. From the outside, it doesn't look like much but the food is delicious on the inside.

The food is delicious and fresh. The service is quick and the staff is pleasant. The portions are large and I never knew that Tofu and Satan could be so delicious. All the vegetables that they serve are obviously fresh. I highly recommend this restaurant for a quick and filling lunch or dinner.

Getting there: for some reason, both my GPS and the map on TA put the location on the southbound (western) side of Rockville Pike next to the IHOP. It is actually on the Northbound lanes (east side) in a small strip mall next to Enterprise Rentacar. Okay, once there, the service was pretty efficient and the food was fantastic. I... More

Love this family operated little restaurant. This is by far the only vegetarian place i would go to for Chinese style vegetarian meals in DC metro area. They serve REAL vegetarian. We love the "fish" which has to be pre-order and they don't do that often since that's literally an art. I also went there several times at lunch time,... More

This is an amazing restaurant and very popular with the Kosher crowd in Rockville/Bethesda/Potomac. My mother is a Chinese vegetarian, not vegan and she loves this place. They have a chopped braised tofu dish with roasted pine nuts, to be wrapped in fresh lettuce.. very yummy! They call their dishes "Beef or Chicken or.." but there is no meat. The... More

Our family has loved Yuan Fu since it opened. We used to dine there every couple of weeks. However, in the past few years, we've found ourselves going there less and less often. The menu hasn't changed in years -- maybe ever -- and although the food is good and the service exemplary, we have begun to find the unchanging... More

This is THE go-to vegan Chinese restaurant in the metropolitan DC area. The food is super-delicious, reasonably priced, and always served with a smile. We often bring our non-vegetarian friends to Yuan Fu, and they are amazed at the creative cooking that pleases meat-eaters and non-carnivores alike. Mary, the owner/hostess, is a delight - and makes every customer feel like... More

I am always on the look out for Vegan/Vegetarian food. It is nice to have no meat once in a while, less calories, and more healthy. Found this one recommended by the Washington Post from 2013. The review seems to suggest that it was impossible to tell the difference between real meat and the vegan alternatives served here. I went... More

It is not easy to find a reasonably priced restaurant near Bethesda, and Yuan Fu was not only reasonable, the food was quite good and very inventive. We are not vegetarians, but our friends who live nearby are and recommended this. We went on a Saturday night around 7 pm and grabbed the last remaining table (reservations only taken for... More

We have been enjoying great meals at Yuan Fu since it opened. We keep kosher (though the food is GOOD regardless) so we can eat to our hearts content here with nary a bit of pork or shellfish. The food is consistently good, service is attentive and it is a spotlessly clean restaurant. The Lunch Box special (3 items for... More
