The restaurant posts these rave reviews from the Washington Post and other well known publications. Some were dated in 2016 so I figured not much could change in a year. The restaurant boasts of hand-stretched noodles and handmade dumplings, and sure enough there's an old...More

Not many Chinese restaurants in America have that authentic feel to them, but this one does. Fresh food and herbal tea is what attracts the customers. My favorite is the orange chicken. It's Marinated in their finest sauce and cooked to perfection. Add the sauce...More

Don't be fooled by the name or atmosphere. This place has very good food at fair prices. My family and I ate here during our vacation. I was disappointed that we couldn't make it back here for a second meal. Atmosphere has a "hole-in-the-wall" feel....More

Have people making food right in the window. Seating is a bit crowded but food was good. Sweet and sour chicken was good. Had noodle chicken chow mein. Heavy on noodles light on the chicken. Friendly staff. Take all major credit cards.

One of my good friends recommended this place, so I was there today with my guests - they walked all the way from Union station to Chinatown. It was truly embarrassing to see all the 16 xiaolongbaos (soup dumplings) in two baskets lying without any...More

How can you not be drawn in by that? They also tout being written up by WP and NYT. This place has the vibe of the "authentic" Chinese places in the Rockville area with the menu duplicated on colored paper on the walls, some only...More

We've read so many reviews of the place we had to try it. And while it is definitely not the best chinese I've had, it did live up to par. The place resembles a thousand other Chinese restaurants all over the big cities in States...More
