We’ve been here many times. This place offers sudo Taiwanese dishes. They are not bad but not authentic. That even said, it's better than any other places. The price is reasonqble. The service is all right. Overall value is good if you crave for Taiwanese.

Tucked in to a small strip perpendicular to Washington st., this is one of Rockville's many Asian eatery treasures. The soup dumplings are a special feature but daily special compositions such as the chives and flounder keep me coming back for new tastes. Bob's is...More
