Went there for Chinese and found it had morphed into a Persian cuisine. Nice people but not my kind of food. Very spicy, lots of lamb dishes. Very dry cake for dessert.

The portion was too much for me so i could have lunch and dinner with one order of fried rice and shrimps. Really good. They also have a "all you can eat buffet" but I preferred the meals on the take out menu. Wanton soup was awesome too. Price was fair, I could eat with only 10 dollars a day.

We loved it so much we made sure to go back again before we left. The food was fresh and delicious. Everything we had tasted great. I especially enjoyed the Chicken with Broccoli. The service was very good as well. FYI -They do not offer lunch specials on the weekend.

We ordered take out from what we thought was Mongolian, but was not strictly Chinese...It was not a place we would recommend or return to. Made you wonder if the food was ok. Crispy food was mushy. Of eight of us no one finished theri food.

I was really mixed about this place. I would probably have given it 3 1/2 stars if I could. We had dim sum and spring rolls for appetisers which were hot and, fresh and delicious. I had fountain soda which was free refills and hubby was impressed with the price of the beer. We had the Mongolian grill and that's... More

We went here for the lunch buffet. The selection was pretty good. The wait staff was attentive. The food was hot and tasted like every other Chinese buffet where I have eaten. And they also have a Mongolian style wok included in the buffet price. The prices were reasonable, especially for Crystal City.

I was in this area for business with two associates. We each ordered a item and had it family style. The portions were large and the quality was very good. The prices were good and the menu had great variety.

Had Crispy Orange Chicken the first night of our visit, and liked it so much that we had it delivered to our room on the 2nd night! Friendly staff, convenient location.

I came here on while heading out the next morning to Iceland for vacation. I had the General Tso chicken and it was very good. My server kept my Diet Coke filled and the food was served hot, with perfectly cooked steamed broccoli. It was so good that I stopped in on my return from vacation.
