This is a frequent lunch stop for office goers in Bethesda. Hospitality is average. Waiter was not in his best mood but got the dishes we ordered without any confusion. Fried ice cream for dessert is good

It was not crowded when we arrived. There were many empty tables. The waiter took our order after 15 minutes. Finally got all our food 55 minutes after ordering.

We have tried a number of the dishes and they never disappoint. Try the basil chicken, green curry chicken, and Mongolian Beef. A few of our favorites.

Foong Lin is our go-to delivery restaurant. We order so often that the delivery man and I are on a first name basis. Since phone service was out in the neighborhood last evening, we headed down to Foong Lin for an old-fashioned sit-down meal. Foong...More
