Delicious!!! Inexpensive, but huge portions. The hot and sour soup was the best! Wish we had them in my home town. Delivery was quick. More of pick up/delivery than a sit down place.

This was the gift that kept on giving. At Walter Reed for the night & ordered takeout. Beef & broccoli with spring rolls & soup. We had enough for dinner the next night. Perfect crunch to broccoli & the dishes overall were very good. Would go back & try more

We normally do takeout orders from North China (Bethesda) but decided to try something new. The reviews of Chinese Express on TripAdvisors were not bad plus the place is only about 1 mile from our house and it offers delivery. We ordered 6 dishes online for about $60. We were shocked that only one dish (red curry shrimp) was decent; the rest very bad. The vegetable dumplings were terrible--with very thick skins and bad fillings. The tofu (with basil) was deep fried--not much real tofu except dry and fried skin. The roast pork had a strange sauce with onions. The free general Tao's chicken (for orders over $30) was mostly fried and gooey flour and not much chicken. All dishes were way too sweet for our taste.

Luckily our order was just for my husband and me staying home watching a Red Sock's division playoff game, no guest. Delivery was fast though (about 30m), and the quantity was good. But a lot of bad food isn't a good thing--most of it went to the trash. We will go back to North China.

Quick food and tasty. Able to walk to restaurant to get food. Good size servings. Lots for left overs.
