This is a restaurant in the Pentagon City shopping centre. Clearly this place never serve costumers twice. Food is good but the staff is out of this world unpolite, stressed out and unfriendly. You get the feeling that they hate you for eating their food. One women behind the counter slammed the spoon on the boxes to make me decide... More

If you are bored of the classic fast food, and money to spend a lot of do not want. Then the chicken in the Cajun is a great option. The sauces will help to diversify the menu. I saw here two Cajun - on Pennsylvania Avenue and Union station

Ordering here was a language problem with the server, but once over that we ended up with some orange chicken and bourbon chicken. Tasty bourbon chicken but the orange chicken was a bit slushy and was very stodgy. I was still eating it hours later, so I don't rate the Orange chicken. Not as cheap as I thought it rated... More

I'm from the Gulf Coast region and wondered what I'd get in DC; I'd never seen such a place in a mall before. This was definitely assembly line food, but the bourbon chicken was good tasty Chinese food. I asked if they could give me a small taste of the jambalaya instead of a full serving of white rice and... More

This "restaurant" is a stand in Union Train Station in downtown D.C. The food is not Cajun, as someone else points out here, and is very much a mass-produced product. That being said, the Bourbon chicken is very nice...tasty and juicy as though it has marinated for many days. The rice looked a little too greasy, so I opted for... More

Nice people and tasty Chinese for a food stand at a train station, BUT it is not Cajun! And I don't think anyone there is named Kelly.

There are only 2 or 3 chinese food joints at the Union Station. This one, unlike others, accepts credit cards. The amount of food is very plentiful and chicken teryaki is soft and delicious. For an extra $1 you get double chicken meat, so this is a damn good deal. I'll be sure to visit them again.

There are lot of choices in Union Station food court, but I recommend Kelly's for good chinese. This time I had the teriyaki chicken. The quality of the meat and the freshness of the rice really stood out compared to typical food court food. Quick, friendly service.
