I feel I would be letting others suffer the same as my family if I let this place just pass as a bad experience. We did not have the luxury of access to any reviews when we entered here as walk ins. Read the other...More

I hopefully trudged upstairs to the Chinese seafood section looking for dim sum, and was very disappointed with all aspects of this restaurant. Service was extraordinarily slow, and the dim sum carts took forever to come around. The place was half empty as it was...More

Dishes were ok but not as good as in the past. BBQ pork buns were burned, har gow was undercooked and turnip cakes had little flavor. Service was passable but rushed. Despite years of eating here on our trips to D.C., I think this will...More

I was recommended this for their Mongolian cooking.The food was fresh and prepared as you requested. Service was attentive and the price unexpectedly reasonable for the area. There are fancier places but I would consider going again and would not hesitate to send a friend.

Went in. Okay. Sat down. Okay. 'Where's the menu?" Oh no! Apparently you get a bowl put in old looking, brown vegetables, slimy noodles, fatty meats and unknown Mongolian (watered down soy) sauce. Then the "chef" throws it on a round hot plate for 30...More

Came highly recommended from a co-worker. It was OK. Chinese is Chinese I guess. Will probably try another place just because there was plenty.

I don't know if he does or not; when we had dim sum there, we were dining on a Saturday afternoon. I would call the restaurant to find out.
