Came into Chinatown hoping to find some good Chinese food. Being from a small town, the only Chinese available is buffet style and usually somewhat questionable. Food was definitely of a better quality. The staff were very friendly and seated us quickly. The hot tea served at the beginning of the meal was a great touch due to the cold... More

The menu is substantial, the service was fast, and the food was delicious. I had the Kung Pao with a cup is hot and sour soup. I hope to try some other dishes on future visits.

The restaurant had a strange entrance where you could choose three doors to enter however after this all things were positive. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was hot, very tasty and plentiful. A very pleasant meal.

We went to this restaurant and had a .wonderful delicious Chinese dinner. We asked to have a traditional Chinese Dish made and they accommodated. The waitress Hong was very friendly and helpful. We had to go back again before we left town. This was the best Chinese dinner I have had in a very long time. Highly recommend this place... More

You can't go wrong with the Garden. It is clean and very authenic. The dim sum and fried rice are extraordinary. Our dinner here made our trip to Chinatown in Washington a hit.

The cocktails are ridiculous. So are the foods. Do yourself a favor and come to this place. Loved the whole experience.

Asked around the locals and they recommended this great place. Food is awesome. Try the Sui Mai and the fried rice or noodles.

We wanted to eat Chinese in Chinatown and chose to try this restaurant. When I asked for lemonade I got a small glass and no free re-fill. The food was OK but not very special. The service was friendly but at times hard to find and it looked if she had disappeared. That's all.

We had lunch together with my family. We didn't really have appetite because it was late and not too hungry. But when the sautee spinach came as ordered by my daughter, it was really good that arose our appetite. But the size was so big.

The wait staff was inattentive, the food was down right horrible. It had nothing to do with Chinese cuisine. In fact the food had nothing to do with cuisine at all. Please do not eat at this place.

Thank John G
