Loving dumplings, we wanted to try this place for a while. Finally it happened, and boy we were disappointed. WHY?.. BECAUSE: a) counting 12 dumplings p/portion for two of us we could contain in our tummies not more then 2 orders, so we asked if we could have 2 combos with some different types of dumplings. And the answer was:... More

We were swayed by rave reviews of its Chinese dumplings to pay a visit to the China Bistro 妈妈水餃館 and we were not disappointed. No wonder the place was quite packed even though it was past one o’clock. Apparently, many of the diners patronize the eatery regularly and the impatient waitperson must think we were regulars, too, as we had... More

Order Mamas dumplings, a serving of about 10 delicate, steamy dumplings that will feed your soul as well as your stomach. Delectable and delicate flavored minced meat filling, and a pot of tea, for 10$. Veggie rolls were also excellent. A full menu, but the dumplings are the thing here!

I had the orange chicken, my date had the chicken cashew. As is usual for me, my date ALWAYS gets the better meal. The orange peel chicken was good, but the cashew chicken was nothing short of terrific. It was crispy, sweet and tangy, and hot, and matched perfectly with crunchy but properly cooked veggies. Both came with rice. We... More

If you like dumplings and this is the best in town. The dumplings are made to cook and there is a large varieties of dumplings with different fillings. The scallion pancake is also a must.

Parking can be hit or miss at times; in a jam I'd go for the Giant lot next door. This place has been around for a long time doing "Mamas Dumplings", it use to be a hole in the wall and now is much nicer place to sit down. It has been an anchor of the Rockville Chinatown and now... More

We tried the Mama's Dumplings (2 orders), the green bean and pork dumplings and the bok choy and mushrooms. Mama's was my fav, but all were good. The only issue was we were basically told we were staying to long. Don't go and plan to have a long relaxing dinner. I am most definitely going back for a quick dinner.

Staff are welcoming and friendly. Had the pork dumplings and mama's dumplings and green onion pancake. Dumplings were really average however. Bit stodgy. Would look elsewhere.

I'll never come back here. I don't care how good their dumplings are. How can people support a place with such bad customer service? Stay away. And despite the Washingtonian review, the Singapore rice noodles are terrible.

We've gone many times now. Their pan fried pork chive dumplings are fabulous. We have enjoyed the crispy beef, lo mein, and sweet and sour chicken. All very good. Great value for high quality.
