This is a typical American Chinese restaurant. They have a big sign of dumpling in Chinese outside and you can see they are making dumplings from the window and thought their dumplings are authentic. I found myself totally wrong! I could not even swallow the...More

暑いところ熱心に客引しているので営業努力をしているのかと思いましたが、小籠包はカサカサです。入って後悔しました。ワシントンポストの記事を出していますが、今までで1番美味しくない小籠包でした。スタッフさんは暑い中お疲れ様です。 The service staff were working hard to let guests in under the heat. So I was induced into this restaurant, but the 小籠包 was the worst I've ever had and they were dried up and no soup inside. It was just a pity with...More

The noodles were really good! (Fried pork and leeks), and so was the beef and white rice. Prices were good also, and portions appropriate. Would recommend it! Oh and service was not half bad compared to other restaurants in the area....

The restaurant posts these rave reviews from the Washington Post and other well known publications. Some were dated in 2016 so I figured not much could change in a year. The restaurant boasts of hand-stretched noodles and handmade dumplings, and sure enough there's an old...More

Not many Chinese restaurants in America have that authentic feel to them, but this one does. Fresh food and herbal tea is what attracts the customers. My favorite is the orange chicken. It's Marinated in their finest sauce and cooked to perfection. Add the sauce...More
