This is authentic Chinese on an upper floor. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, not too loud but you'll know you are not alone. Their portions are large and everything we had was very good. Service was fast and friendly.

I had a very tasty and good lunch at this restaurant. The service was fast and friendly. They provide a glass of water and a full can of hot tea for free at arriving and a fortune cookie comes with the check.

Re-opened June 21, 2017. Excellent appetizers, very good fish, plus a convenient location near Capitol and Library of Congress. We'll definitely return.

This restaurant is close to the House Congressional Buildings, thus a good place to have a lunch while visiting your Congress member. It is a good Chinese restaurant with tasty standard items. Not bland, Not hot. Just good Chinese foods.

Was unsure when we got to the door but was not disappointed when we got out food. The meats were tender and literally melted in your mouth. The staff was friendly and attentive. Closest thing to authentic Asian cuisine. Loved it!
