I was staying in Bethesda. Yes, there are far better Chinese restaurants in the metropolitan DC area but we want to stay close to my friend's house. There's a very large parking lot across the street, so parking was not an issue as it can...More

This restaurant features a very nicely appointed dining room, much nicer than the average Chinese restaurant. I enjoyed the meal, the fire crackling in the nearby fireplace, the white tablecloths and good service. We ordered shrimp and spinach dishes which were ok, as were the...More

The food wasn't bad. Hit and sour soup was good - but didn't come with crispy topping. And the veg fried rice was good too. Sweet and sour chicken alright and beef broccoli not tough. So why is that $50?

We had just flown in from Europe and didn't want to go out. Foong Lin delivered very good food real fast. The crispy chicken wings are amazing! Ingredients are all high quality. We'll carry out (or dine in!) again.

This is a frequent lunch stop for office goers in Bethesda. Hospitality is average. Waiter was not in his best mood but got the dishes we ordered without any confusion. Fried ice cream for dessert is good

Place was bustling on a cold Saturday night. Zero Chinese customers and table set with flatware-chopsticks provided on request. These three factors give a sense of what to expect: Predictable Chinese-American standards. That said, there are pluses, the food was overall decently executed, the dining...More

Foong Lin has been in the area for longer than I can remember. It moved to this location several years ago (the photo is of its predecessor). We are not regulars, but we are always treated well. Table service can be spotty, although we have...More

It was not crowded when we arrived. There were many empty tables. The waiter took our order after 15 minutes. Finally got all our food 55 minutes after ordering.

Assume they will be open on Christmas Eve; restaurant does have vegan/vegetarian options, as I recall.
