My husband and I have been coming here for many many years. We both enjoy the food and really, really love the eggrolls. The service is good when they are not busy. Sometimes, more like all the time, they are very busy. Be prepared to...More

You can't go wrong at this place. All the food is great here. No fancy place, just awesome food. The egg rolls are the best I've ever had. Hot and sour soup is wonderful. Prices are also nice. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

Love sesame chicken and chicken and broccoli. Favorite chinese takeout in DM metro. Order the egg rolls and crab rangoons.

The food was mediocre at best, which is not surprising for a little local Chinese restaurant. What made the experience a '2' was the fact that lunch took nearly an hour. It's good that they're busy, but definitely not enough help for the number of...More
