It would seem impossible that such a world of difference could exist between different stores in the same chain, But lo, the North Bethesda restaurant should not fly the flag! We are used to The Boca Raton shop and one would also think that the Bethesda area would be just as discerning... We ordered the $39.95 menu for two and a $56.00 bottle of Franciscan Magnificat '09. We were clear that we wanted the wine before or to time with the soup. After about 15-20 minutes, the wrong soups were delivered. We again asked for our wine... Within - about another 7 minutes, dumplings arrived, still no wine or soup! We sent the dumplings back and told our waiter to hold the food and get the wine. Two minutes later, calamari s arrived, were sent back, now the soups come and the waiter with a Francis Coppola 2011 Claret... He argued with us about his belief in the lack of difference between Francis and Franciscan and that anyway it was only $33.00. At this point, we asked to cut the meal short and bring us a check for the soups... A manager then appeared and apologized, picked up the tab and offered a guest gift card for $25.00 for a next Chang visit... Which will certainly NOT be in Bethesda.

Had dinner recently, 4 adults. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Shrimp, chicken, noodles and various sautéed veggies. Drinks were ok, service too. Not expensive.

Always a treat with the chicken lettuce wraps. Wonton soup was very good with generous helping of shrimp. Mongolian beef with green beans added to the scallions for $0.95 more was great.

I usually don't frequent this restaurant since it serves unauthentic Chinese food, but I have always loved their lettuce wraps more than at any other Asian resto. However, this time the lettuce wraps were disappointing. The chicken just doesn't taste as good as before and the quantity has decreased significantly. We also ordered the ginger chicken that comes with an "abundance" of broccoli - it came with just a few florets of broccoli. So much for the abundance. The hot n sour looked and tasted like they dumped a bottle of soy sauce into it. In addition - we could hear the kitchen staff in the back yelling and ranting like they were high school kids. No thanks ... don't think we'll be coming back here anytime soon.

The food in this chain is consistent. You won't get gourmet Chinese food, but you will get a good meal.
