I love this Chinese Restaurant in the heart of the Washington, DC business district. The food is really delicious and you have more choices than you can count. It is very authentic Asian food and you will see many Asians eating there from out-of-town.

I got a craving for Chinese while on vacation and found this on the restaurant list guide at the hotel. We walked there and the restaurant manager was outside chasing us in for dinner. It wasnt bad or badly priced. Pretty standard Chinese restaurant food,...More

You know a Chinese restaurant is good when it's packed with Chinese tourists! I love their authentic Chinese food menu, especially all of the spicy dishes!

This place was great years ago when it was called Charlie Chang's. My office orders from here quite a bit. I still can't understand why. The food is always too salty. The sauces all taste the same. The spring rolls are frozen with very little...More
