Never, have I ever, experienced service this bad; giving them 1 star is just too kind. We didn't tip low, by any means but the server came and demanded $2. Apparently, under 'suggested' gratuity, it was expected and not suggested. We had to pay more...More

Went to this restaurant with my colleagues spontaneously while on a conference. What a great surprise! I had a great Peking duck, and every one else's food was also exquisite! The service was also extremely good; they even accommodated the restrictions of our vegan colleague....More

This is far and away the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. Very very overpriced for inauthentic, cold, processed food. Shrimp toast was greasy, pork was tough and full of gristle, fried rice was stone cold. At $15.00 per main course dish you...More

Came to this restaurant by chance, and was not disappointed. Excellent flavours, quick, efficient service. Good portion size, with extra touches of cold water, orange pieces, fortune cookies etc. One of the best Chinese meals I've had

This is our go-to place for a meal when we visit the National Portrait Gallery on our frequent trips to Washington. Chinatown Garden is a good alternative to the many fast-food places which dot the neighborhood around the museum, and it’s a quiet, relaxing restaurant...More

We eat a lot of Chinese food. The food was very well presented and tasty! We had Hunan pork, peppered steak, and sesame chicken. All were excellent!
