Dumplings and Beyond: what do users think?


Josh Axelrod: Really solid Chinese takeout for a good price. More importantly — while "beyond" is no misnomer for this expansive menu, you wouldn't be mistaken in sticking with the dumplings, which are fabulous as advertised.

DT: The pork and chive dumplings were just average and the service was bad. There were 3 employees watching me stand at the table to place an order and no one acknowledged me or said anything for several minutes. While I was waiting a delivery driver came to pick up food and also waited several minutes just to be acknowledged with no one in the restaurant (all food is to-go right now). There wasn't anything special about these dumplings, especially considering the poor service. I traveled about 40 minutes out of my way to try this place based on the reviews but it wasn't worth it.

D L: I love ordering from here. I have enjoyed every dish but our favorites are the Treasure Delight Dumplings, the Pork with Chives Dumplings, and Xiao Long Bao Dumplings (under appetizers). Just delicious. I always overeat when eating them! FYI: They prefer you order off the website. Tip well!

Anna Lee: Very tasty and authentic dumplings! As someone who spent her childhood in China, believe me when I say this restaurant sells the real deal. They also have other tasty dishes on the menu, ranging from Westernized takeout staples like kung pao chicken, to really *Chinese* Chinese dishes like red-braised pork and Szechuan spicy boiled fish. All in all, highly recommended.

Nathaniel Zorach: Dumplings and Beyond offers a full menu but is allegedly known for-- wait for it-- its dumplings. A full order of dumplings, which is an affordable dining option in comparison to the (inexplicably) spendier other entrees, looks like a lot of dumplings, but it's not a whole lot of food when you actually get down to it. The dumplings are good. Transformative? Maybe not. The packing of bits for takeout was haphazard and there was a lot of spillage. I'm meh. But my friends love it.

Aftab Shaikh: Dumplings and Beyond is a fantastic place to get really good dumplings. I had the Xiao Long Bao as well as their House Special dumplings which were both very delicious and paired well with their dumpling sauce. They also have regular soy sauce and chili oil if that tickles your fancy. I also tried one of their chef's specials, the Crispy Beef which came with a small bowl of rice. The beef was indeed crispy and was tasty. I definitely recommend a stop here if you're in the mood for some good Chinese food.

azs gr: I always get the pan-fried dumplings with some green tea and the shrimp rolls as an appetizer. It's consistently good, and the service is prompt.

Liang Wen Chen: Excellent value and dumplings. Went to this place during lunch hour on a Sunday had no trouble getting a table. Really undiscovered place in DC and would highly recommend it for authentic Sichuan food. Dumplings are made in house and they are some of the best. Ordered two dumpling dishes and one Sichuan dish and spent about $30.

Stacey Quandt: Fast service. The Xiao Long bao have less soup inside than others but are still good. Great tea selection including chrysanthemum. The pan fried house dumplings are excellent. The breading on the salt and pepper shrimp was a bit heavy.

Allison Lau: Came here for the house special and veggie dumplings. Pretty good - the skin is a bit thick. Good portion size (10 dumplings or so). It made for better leftovers honestly. The scallion pancake was the star of the show. Cucumber salad was good too (traditionally heavy on the garlic). The dishware could have been cleaner. Overall, good dining experience here.

Laoban Dumplings: what do users think?


A Smith: The dumplings here are great but it depends when you go how fresh they are. I've had the unfortunate luck of getting some that had harden a bit so now I buy them frozen and use my own bamboo steamer. They're even better when made at home.
Response: Our frozen dumplings are a great way to go!! Thanks so much for the support! We appreciate you!

Dee P: I came across this little cute shop. I craved some soup dumplings so I gave it a try to order pork soup dumplings. I was really bummed to find out that the size was really tiny which is different than the ones I have normally eaten. also the dumpling wrappers were torn already and I barely tasted any soup in it and some wrappers tasted like they were half cooked. :( Im not impressed with what I got for the price I paid. If I were you I would make these bigger so it can leave more room for soup in it and be sure to cook them well. that being said, I appreciated the hospitality. the cashier and cooker were kind and friendly at the time.
Response: Hi Dee, thanks for coming by and supporting us, and sorry to hear you didn’t have the best experience. We do have very kind and friendly staff, and for future reference they would be happy to replace your dumplings and do whatever they can to make it right. If you’d be willing to give us another shot feel free to send us a note at hello@laobandumplings.com and we’ll take care of you! Thanks so much!!

Mong Ruella: Absolutely delicious! We had the pork dumplings. The lady that served us was wonderful and Ty friendly. We hadn’t been here before, and she walked us through the options and we took her advice. Fantastic food and fantastic service.
Response: Thanks so much Mong! We really appreciate your support and kind words. Y’all come back now ya hear!!

Yo Mama: Cute little place, but the food was pretty average in my humble opinion.

ty jenkins: I came to the place to order dumplings and was unsure of what a dumpling was, the person working there told me to " look is up". I then asked could I speak with a manager she tell me again to " look it up". I was I applaud to why would the worker tell me to look it up without explaining what a dumpling was. She was so rude to me and wouldn't give me her name nor the number to the manager...This happen o. 3/ 14/ 2022 @ 2:30pm Zero customer service and flat out disrespectful toward a customer

Gillian Anderson: They have vegetable, pork, and chicken dumplings. I ordered 11 dumplings to share with someone. I don't eat chicken or pork, so we ordered a mix of meat and vegetable. After we waited for our order, the server handed us the box and told us they had ran out of vegetable, and so they gave us only pork and chicken. They walked away before I could protest. Not going back.
Response: Gillian! So sorry! We are sad about the experience you had 😞. We’d love the chance to make it right, if you could send us a note at hello at laobandumplings dot com we’ll get you a refund and more delicious dumplings. Thanks so much!

Katherine Marshall: This is by far the worst experience I’ve had at Union Market . I usually stop at the market during my jogs and decided to give the place a try ! It was adorable from the paintings to all the culture ! I was so excited until I tried to order … I was told they only had chicken and veggies dumpling’s on the WHOLE MENU so despite that I ordered 11 veggie dumplings , which were not dressed at all . Dry dumplings . I then proceeded to eat them and they were not hot , tasted like it had been out for a while , the rubbery dough stuck to the roof or my mouth during my chewing process . That still wasn’t the reason I gave it such a low rating . As I’m eating I hear the staff get alarmed .. as I listened closer I overhear they were alarmed by a ROACH !!! I almost regurgitated the food that I already consumed . This was beyond disgusting because like I’ve said previously my dumpling’s tasted like they were left out . Now im thinking if the roaches were on my food .. I am highly disappointed in the Market And Laoban .. Will be reporting to health department!!!!!!!

Ellie McFarland (Fiction Flamingo): The little restaurant was well decorated, clean, and the staff were friendly and prompt, but the Pork Soup Dumplings were underwhelming. The dumpling dough was unstable and fell apart, and it used some kind of non-standard soup base. That second thing would be fine if it were melted like soup dumplings normally are, but it was solid and very off-putting. Their soy sauce is great though, and had a wonderful kick to it. This wasn’t at all bad enough to swear this place off forever. I’m sure this was an off day, or maybe these specific dumplings just aren’t to my taste. Next time I’m at The Market, I will stop by and give it a second chance.
Response: Hi Ellie! Sorry we missed the mark with your first visit. The soup dumplings are made with Berkshire pork, a particularly rich type of pork that might taste a bit different if you’re not used to it. We’d love to welcome you back if you’d give us another shot, feel free to send us a note at hello@laobandumplings.com and we’ll make sure you have a better experience. Thanks!

Tijuana: I had an order of Pork Soup Dumplings. They were good but unfortunately they stuck to the paper container. This tore the dumpling and spilled the soup before I could get it in my mouth!
Response: Hi Tijuana, so sorry your dumplings stuck like this, this is definitely not typical! Our normal containers, which don’t stick to the dumplings, were unavailable from our supplier yesterday. The supply of to-go containers has been a little inconsistent with restaurants having shifted so much toward to-go orders. If you can send us a note at hello@laobandumplings.com we’d be happy to refund this order, and if you’d be willing to give us another shot we’d be happy to serve you another order for free. Thanks so much!

Chef Mesilati: Best dumplings in DC, bar none! Ask to get with garnishes, and comsume immediately (I doubt you will want to leave any for later. That good!), or buy a frozen package for home - it really does not better than that.
Response: Thank you Chef! We appreciate your kind words and support!

East Dumpling House: what do users think?


Richard Zhao: This is a Chinese restaurant that it's specialty is China Northeastern-style cuisine. Located in the downtown center of Rockville City of Maryland, it is right across street from the Courthouse,. It's interior design is quite fashionable with a flashy bar bench. We had a party of 13. Unfortunately, they do not take reservation. As the result, one of us had to be there earlier to make sure we'll have a table. It turned out there were plenty space. For some reason, they no longer have the large and round table anymore. They had to merge three tables for us, which tampen our enthusiasm to have an intimate gathering. However, the food were overall good. We ordered one dish for each person mostly with double orders so we can share. The beer tower sitting in the middle of table was a highlight and cheering. After we ordered two, the lady owner gave us the third one for free. Nevertheless, our total bill including tip ended up with $48 per person, which is not cheap, perhaps we should blame the inflation.

ESB NYC: Have to say that we chose this place randomly and thought it was really good. Flavorful dishes, only thing I have to say is that the dumplings had a thick skin but I still enjoyed them. Kitschy interior, loud and not-too-friendly staff, no problem though.

Jingmin Zhang: All around good. A few northern Chinese dishes with good portion and flavor. The dumplings were very tasty though the shapes were much rounded than I remembered

Jean Ng: I was surprised that the dan dan noodle tasted so good ! The sauce is tangy and spicy and the noodle has a very good tooth feel. Cant get enough of the spicy dan dan sauce that I even dipped my dumplings in it. On the other hand, i kinda prefer dumplings that has a thinner skin but overall its still a satisfying meal and I can say its authentically chinese cuisine as it is.

Max Cheng (Max A. Cheng): Great food, but the servers neglected us for a while after we sat down. Food came quicker than expected and it was really good. The background karaoke not so much.

Whilly Emily: Never again!!!! Price was high for what you get and flavor and quality is below average. The kabobs were the alright and the best out of everything I got which is disappointing as some street vendors in China make a better. And not to forget a mosquito in the dipping sauce that came with the terrible, super dry and little to no meat mainly just coated frying mix bao bao!

Andrew Davis: Quite good Northeastern Chinese food! I wasn't familiar with the cuisine, but the thicker-sider dumplings and dishes with eggplant/pumpkin/potato were a lot of fun and very tasty.

Ingrid Garcia: We thought the Szechuan Style Handmade Noodles and the dumplings (especially the House dumplings) were pretty good. We got there at 5 and by the time we left at 7 there were a good amount of people waiting to be seated. They validate parking which is nice! I will say that for the servers, they are friendly, but they might be short staffed currently so that might be why they weren’t quick in attending tables.

Hopkins Theresa: food is not bad, but too spicy and greasy for my family, We have to drink a lot of water. I love their Karaoke service, we have family party over the new year, and it was so much fun, you can have your own private lounge and eat the dinner inside the lounge and dance and sing. Love the party over there.

Remy Poulin: They stop serving vegetables at 9 pm. If you are vegetarian that is very important information. cause their dumplings are delicious. the home style tofu dish was very good as well. still sad that we couldn’t get any vegetarian dumplings.

Reren Lamen & Bar: what do users think?


Anthony M: Everything was really good and you can tell the noodles are made in house. The Grandmas pancakes were excellent and the Dan Dan noodles were particularly enjoyable. The location is convenient from the conference center, and somewhat small. However, the service is friendly, quick, and excellent. I will have to revisit this location to try the Ramen sometime.

Adam N: I cannot find good soup dumplings where I live now. So when I travel I have to try the nearest place. These soup dumplings were pretty good. Right in the middle of everywhere I've tried. I would go back for them. As for the rest or the menu I have no idea.
Response: Adam, Thank you for your wonderful review. We are happy you've found your favorite soup at Reren. We are proud to have a wide variety of options for our customers and we like to use clean ingredients to keep our food on the healthier side!

arun varughese: A decent place for ramen. I had grilled chicken Leren. The service was quick as I got the item in 10 mins. Chicken noodle leren : The broth was very nice and kind of carried the dish. The chicken felt very less in quantity and tasted very bland. The noodles felt a bit overcooked. Overall it is an average dish for the price. The overall quantity of noodles and soup is good. I was expecting a much stronger flavor from an Asian dish, maybe that’s why I was a bit underwhelmed.
Response: Arun, Thank you for sharing your experience. At TNR's we use the highest quality and fresh ingredients. When anyone thinks of Chinese culinary it has to be fresh food made from scratch. We always advise our customers to please let us know your taste preferences so we can provide you with the best experience. We hope to have you try us again & please let us know your preference so we can adjust anything accordingly. Feel free to check us out on Social media (Instagram & Facebook) for the latest updates. @rerenlamen

Albert Wu: The house soup noodle has three pieces of pork that taste fine but there’s too much fat. The vegetable doesn’t look great. The soup base is average. The noodle is chewy but not spectacular. The fish ball soup is unimpressive. The edamame is good. The DC Chinatown is not as exciting as Chinatowns in San Francisco, Los Angeles, or even Boston. Should not expect too much from the Chinatown restaurants in DC
Response: Albert Wu, Truly sad to hear that! We actually use the highest quality ingredients. Unlike most restaurants in the area, we get our ingredients fresh and from the best suppliers in the nation. I advise you that many restaurants in not just in the DMV area but all over the states use US Foods pre-packaged food full of preservatives. That could be some customer's taste preference and we do not oppose it by any means but at Reren we always believe in the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Every single ingredient is prepared in-house! Our staff is always trained to make sure to provide the best experience to our customers. We believe in the best products for our customers. If there is ever any desire on food taste etc please feel free to let us know the specifics on how you may want your dish prepared. We will try to do our best for you :) Hope to have you dine in again and we will prove why Reren is loved by the entire community.

Kim Nguyen: This was my first time having lamen. I ordered the Reren Signature Lamen and the Chen Duong spicy wontons. The food was okay. It wasn’t as tasty as I was hoping it to. However I do like the texture of the lamen noodle. It was worth a try.
Response: Kim, Thank you for your feedback. We stand by the highest quality ingredients, large portions, authentic food, and hygiene which makes our community value us. We are always open to alter our dishes according to your taste and preferences!

Nikkicole8890: My boyfriend took me here for dinner for my first time in DC and I absolutely loved it! We had Bao buns that were so scrumptious! I've dreamed of these since my trip up there 🤤🤤 We also had pork dumplings and the pork soup dumplings that were the best dumplings I think I've ever had in my life! We also ordered milk tea before we left and it was delicious! I had strawberry coconut and my boyfriend had passion fruit (I think) his was a little on the tart side but still enjoyable and I loved mine!!
Response: Nikkicole8890, Thank you for taking the time and writing such an amazing review. We are so happy you enjoyed our food and have found your favorites. We look forward to serving you again and please let us know how we can assist you prior to any of your visits. We are here for you every day.

Response: Sok Hwee Tay, Thank you for taking the time to share your 5-star rating. We look forward to seeing you during your next visit.

Kayode Yussuf: This is my most visited restaurant in DC. I love the coconut bubble tea. Staff is friendly and Price is also reasonable. I usually will get the General Tao Chicken and rice. Stirred fried noodles is also exciting

Lord Eldwyn: Broth was a huge standout, and the noodles cooked to perfection. The soup dumplings were phenomenal. Great service, and staff was very attentive. Come early because things can sell out. Only complaint is that I dont live in the area and can't return more often.

Shanghai Lounge: what do users think?


Rohit Rajendran: We came here on a whim after our original dinner choice didn't work out. We're glad that we did because everything we tried was solid. We got the pork dumplings which we quickly regretted not ordering more. The hot and sour soup also ended up being perfect for a rainy day. The Ma Po Tofu had some great flavor but could of used some more spice. We also tried the cucumber salad and scallion pancakes. The cucumber salad was a nice refreshing palate cleanser. I would probably skip the scallion pancakes next time, since it just felt like it was missing something without a sauce. Overall, good food and a place that I would definitely come back to and try some of the other dishes.

Besim Hasar: Try another place. Mongolian beef was just with regular onions. Spring rolls were like microwaved. Had better ones from the Safeway freezer aisle across the street. Iced tea was a Lipton yellow bag direct to the ice water.

Adriana Rakshana: Decent Chinese food. Got the combination lo mein and asked for it to be made spicy, which they graciously obliged. Could have been spicier but was still pretty enjoyable.

Jess W: Amazing place: Amazing food! I had a wonderful lunch at Shanghai Lounge. The food was delicious (especially the soup dumplings). The restaurant had a very charming and comfortable atmosphere that I would definitely return to. Customer service was also great! I would definitely recommend!

Fei Huang: A good authentic Chines food restaurant around the area. For my personal perspective, their food are a little salty, but they have better quality of rice among all other Chinese restaurant I had been to.

Emily Tenuta: Really great Chinese. Had the combination fried rice--the best fried rice I've ever had- and spicy beef broth (pictured). We also started with tomato egg drop, pork dumplings, and seaweed salad. Everything was delicious and well-made; the beef melts in your mouth. The place is small and bustling on Friday and Saturday nights, so I definitely recommend making a reservation.

Shannon Sanders: Every time we go, there's something new to try. Any type of dumpling is our go-to. The manager (Flo...?) was the sweetest lady. She struck good conversation and helped us with our food choice. We've added this to our list of monthly eats in D.C.!

Sophie C: Came on the day of the start of winter and had dumplings. Average Chinese food

Christina Xia: Some of the best Chinese in DC! Very friendly service; they speak perfect English as well as mandarin. Hope to return soon!

Stephanie: Came for lunch. Two entrees and an appetizer came out to $40 (taxes and tip included) kinda pricey for lunch. Food was ok nothing much to talk about. Got Kung Pao chicken, spicy pork wonton and the Singapore noodles. The server was very attentive.

Sarah White: The fresh noodles were delicious and the dumplings were absolutely phenomenal! The dough was thicker than I’m used to but it made it that much better. My only complaint was the duck fried noodles were very bony. Not a lot of meat and not really worth the trouble. I’d go back, but I wouldn’t choose the duck.

Queenie Enriquez: This place have the best duck ever, very tender and delicious. The home made noodles is a must try. Yes, it is small and can get crowded but food is great.

John “Bams” Serev: Very delicious Chinese cuisine. What pulled us in this fine establishment is the Duck Man that was in the front window. He was just messing around with the ducks and chopping them up and what not. The duck man made eye contact with me and he then winked. Next, and without breaking eye contact with me he chopped the next duck in half with a 1 foot clever. Food was awesome duck man was cool. Waitress sucked.

Nay Nay's Kids: I usually don’t do reviews but this place deserves one! I had General Tso chicken with wonton soup and egg rolls.. egg rolls are nothing but brown cabbage, two wontons in a broth that tasted like water and the chicken smh was brown on the inside and taste horrible!!! I could not even eat one piece, just gross!!! I don’t understand how things operate if your food tastes that bad, never again!!!

M C: Very bad experience. In menu, it said Rib, but it is definitely not Rib. In menu, it said hand-made noodle, but it is definitely not, and someone's hair in fhe soup!! There is no *soup* in souo dumpling, it is just freezed and heated with microwave oven. No taste.. Ethical problem!! Please cook the right food!

Judy Blanco: It was ok, I think of all we ordered the Singapore noodles were the best. Definitely wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again.

Mai Ling (SrirachaLing): Delicious food, small atmosphere, right in the heart of Chinatown DC with lots of menu choices. Did i say they have duck? Its was crispy and perfectly cooked. We shared a wonton soup, duck lo mein and chicken w/mixed vegetable.

QDotDizzle: Roast duck noodle soup was slamming, wish there would Have been more breast meat but the broth was dee-lish... They have a good variety of authentic and american style Chinese food. The soup dumpling are fresh handmade And weren't bad... good place if you're on the go!

Nate B: The food was okay. We had the Lo Mein, roasted meat combo, and fried rice. Homeade noodles were kind of thick and needed more seasoning. Roasted duck, chicken and pork were pretty good. Food was served in takeout containers for dine-in. Very hot inside. Service was great. I would recommend giving it a try.

Axi Berman: Excellent duck. Really great place to eat good Chinese food away from the snooty DC crowds. Would fit in nicely in San Fran or Seattle. Reasonably priced. Food so good I crushed it before I could take proper pictures.

Mandu: what do users think?


Janice L: This place was okay. Their flavors were kinda bland especially their sundubu-jjigae. It didn't have any taste to it other than spiciness and the hefty price tag made me feel like I was scammed. We were told we only had 1.5 hours to dine because they had a reservation after that, which was fine because we knew we would be gone by then. We finished eating with 25 minutes left, but our waiter took a long time to bring us back the bill to sign. Then the host came to our table to tell us that we only have 20 minutes left, when we are TRYING to leave, but are dependent on them bringing us back our check. Extremely rude and huge lack of communication between the employees. I would not be back again.

Melissa Young: Food was amazing!! Service was a bit "different" because of Covid, but appreciated. Order through your phone, food brought to the table. No actual "service" but definitely understandable!! Will go back again!

Michelle Kim: I visited this restaurant slightly before 6pm and I could get a table without waiting. I ordered dolsot bibimbab which is mixed rice in a hot stone bowl. The main dish came with the complimentary vegetable dish. To my surprise, the taste was almost like the one in the South Korea. I asked if the restaurant is run by a Korean owner and the waiter said yes. The fresh healthy meal only cost $18. Here is a tip if you order a bibimbab. The chili paste sauce Gochujang is salty and spicy. So begin with a teaspoon of it and taste it before you add it more.

Amelia Morrissey: Amazing. I got the sweet potato noodles with eggplant. The waitor was very kind and helped me pick something great even though I know nothing about Korean food. For those looking for a traditional noodle shape, it was more like the little ball shape in this photo. I would compare it more to gnocchi than linguini. It was wonderful

David Broome: This was a really great, easy recommend dinner spot. Not fancy, but still playful. Not decadent, but really comforting. Not rigid in form or delivery, but very much connected to the original and deliver with sizzle & flair. We dined on the patio on a lovely night out in DC and while it did drizzle for a while during our meal, the tents kept us dry, so no worries. We were very glad to have had the chance to dine with Mandu and happy they've been able to weather the current circumstances and deliver a meal worth remembering with class. Hats off to the chef and especially our server who was an absolute pro, knowledgeable, and even sent us home with extra house kimchi and sambal 🤤. Go and see them if you get a chance. Definitely worth!

Tan Sav: Solid place for korean food. Not the typical traditional korean restaurant or bbq spot. A bit of spin on some of the favs.

R S: First and last visit. Ordered the veggie japchae and found it to be bland. I normally have at least three servings of it when I order it at other restaurants...it was barely one serving there. But, I still left a 20% tip...and someone there increased the tip amount by $1.00. Like Really! I had my copy of the receipt and I wrote down exactly how much I tipped them and what the total charge to my account should have been. I hope it was just an error...but I certainly will not be returning.

MJ H: Friendly and fast service! A bit pricy for the amount of food you get and taste was just ok. Their banchan is yummy but you only get 1 "refill" where as other Korean restaurants usually give you as many as you ask for...

SMDiPhotography: The restaurant is beautiful. The staff was very friendly. We had our 1 year old daughter with us and they were super cool with her wanting to wander a bit. The food was delicious! Took this photo of my goji bokum. The rice cakes were a unique twist and the eggplant was perfect!

Julie Conka: Best Korean food I have ever had as of yet! Everything I had was delicious! Will be back next time I'm in the area! Yum!

Jarron Brady: I had a really pleasant experience here. Everything I had was well cooked and had a ton of flavor. The general tso’s chicken was my favorite (fried so well). The Mongolian beef was also really flavorful as well. The service was very warm too. Definitely returning

Brandon Sousa: Loved this place! This is the high quality, reasonably priced Chinese restaurant I’ve been looking for in DC for years. I thought the food was great quality, not too Americanized (though not completely traditional either). Staff were friendly and very attentive, and wildly efficient. After we put orders in, the food was out in five minutes, maybe ten max. Also, best handmade dumplings I’ve had outside New York City.

Anthony Rufka: The food was amazing, the service was outstanding, the staff was very friendly, and they were also impressively quick to get the food out. The portions were also big and thus the value for price is really good. One of the best Chinese restaurants I’ve been to!

Jeffrey Richards: Came for the Salt/Pepper Squid as an appetizer, new menu only has it as an entrée. Won’t budge and offer as an appetizer size, so disappointing. I like the old menu and not this Post Covid Sichuan Pavillion

Audrey Jiang: The space is super comfortable. The waiters and waitresses are incredibly attentive, accommodating, and nice! The dumplings in chili sauce were absolutely amazing, and the rest of the food we ordered was too. 11/10 would recommend and 11/10 would definitely come again. Everything was amazing.

Hilda Kroll: After being closed for two years, they're open again and are better than ever. My friend and I shared Orange Flavored Chicken and Bean Curd Country Style. A bit pricey, but portions were large and the food was delicious. There are lunch specials, but for takeout only. Excellent, attentive service.

Shufang Qiu: Good food and service, although advice on food portions can be improved. Too much food - we were stuffed and had to waste some.

Joe J.: This is probably the best Chinese food experience you'll get in Washington DC. It's simple yet tasty and authentic. It's also very price friendly and the dishes make me keep coming back for more. The mapo tofu main as well as the string beans and hot sauce make this place a number one Chinese restaurant in the area. Do not overlook this place, the experience in the restaurant is wonderful as well.

Leon Faircloth IV: Food and service was excellent. Ordered the General Tso Chicken and it was 🔥. Not mystery meat, certainly was real chicken. The vegies in the meal were good too, peppers added a new spin for my palette. I also loved the fact that hot green/jasmine tea was included with the meal and this restaurant didn't break the bank. Loved it and will return!

Gaurav Gawankar: This place is an absolute 10/10. Everything on the menu is really good, the decor is very nice, the service is fast and everyone is really nice. On top of all of that you get delicious hot tea for free. My favorite Chinese restaurant in DC

Peter Chang: what do users think?


Jessica Shin: Very fresh and delicious szechuan-style cuisine. We started off with a cold appetizer of beef tendons that were sliced thin and marinated with spicy chili sauce, garlic, ginger, and cilantro. I loved all the entrees we ordered: dry fried eggplant, twice-cooked pork, and the spicy hot pot flounder. The spices and flavors definitely activate different receptors in your taste buds as opposed to "Americanized Chinese food."

B. A. Kukuk: This is definitely my favorite high end Chinese restaurant. I had the Golden mountain orange chicken which is basically Peter Chang's version of orange chicken takeout. Except he makes it perfectly spiced, not too hot, not too sweet, with crispy crunchy strips of chicken. The steamed vegetable buns are amazing with this incredible sauce. I wish I had 10 people in my party so I could have sampled many more dishes. Amazing food.

B M Washington: My first time here, and I am hooked. This place is a hidden gem...with some of the best Chinese food I have had. We didn't have a long wait, they have take out, to go, and you can call ahead. Order by the number. My new and favorite dish is #38. The Hot and Numbing combination.

Sirisha Kurakula: I liked the green tea which has been served here, it is organic. We ordered scallion pancake which was good and loved the bamboo fish which was less in quantity. We did not enjoy the grandma chicken which we thought would be spicy but it was too sweet for my husband and me.

Jason Murnock: Very unassuming Chinese place, but the menu is VERY unique and extensive. I got a staple for lunch: mixed vegetable with tofu, but the veggies were super fresh and crispy... which is rare. Hot tea and the wonton soup were both excellent, and the pricing is reasonable. Lunch special, well priced.

Jay Boucher: The shine has come off this diamond. What used to be an exciting and delicious night out is now tired, stale and unnecessarily expensive. First off, nothing much has changed in the past few years when it was THE hotspot. An hour wait was normal without reservations. The restaurant looks and feels tired though. Dingy, no new paint or decor. Same old, same old.... except for menus with increased prices. Entrees run 18-22$ now, but the biggest insult is charging $1.50 for a bowl of rice with EACH entree! Almost $25 bucks each for an entree is a bit pricey for Chinese food. They seen to have become more a take out place now, which is disappointing because the servers would remember you and your orders...now, it's just a different energy. As far as the food, it's...good. Not 25 buck good, but good I guess. Not a great value, and not an experience I'd look forward to at those prices. I wish them well, and hope they find themselves again.

Aránzazu Ascunce: We can see why there are four people answering phones taking orders and seating available only if you've made reservations well in advance. The bubble bread is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. It's fun, delicious, and delightful. Even though the place was totally slammed on a Saturday night, our server did a fantastic job guaranteeing that our food was hot off the stove top and coming right up. Impressive. Keep up the great work and Happy New Year!💧🐯

karen mcafee: Excellent food and great service! We had a party of 10 with 8 adults and 2 kids and everybody enjoyed it. We tried a lot of different things and all of it was so well seasoned and delicious. We especially liked the Szechuan hot pots. We can't wait to go back. 🙂

Jeffrey Gregorio: Food is very good but recent changes should have been reconsidered. Rice is now a $2 additional charge with all dishes. And tonight, after ordering steamed chicken and broccoli with sauce on the side - found out they’ve also reduced their portions by 40-50%. We’ll likely drive a bit further next time.

Carol Taylor: My family and I came to this restaurant during our day trip to Washington DC. Since I have to follow a gluten free diet, we decided on this restaurant based on reviews I read and info regarding their ability to offer a good selection of GF items. A great meal! Not only was our food delicious, but the service was fantastic. My entree had a wonderful selection of unique vegetables that I've never knew of prior to our visit to Peter Chang. Looking forward to revisiting during our upcoming DC day trip!

Vicki: Fantastic Georgian food. The decor is chic and the food is oh so delicious. My friends and I split a few things from the menu. The salad was fresh and the meat was so tender. I think the stand out item was the egg khachapuri. It was cheesy and oh so good. I can't wait to go back.
Response: Thank you for the review! Come join us each Wednesday for ALL DAYYY HAPPY HOUR :D . JeVon GM of Tabla Park View.

Brian Smith: Friendly staff, with excellent knowledge of the menu. Food was great. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommend. I wasn't sure what I wanted, as this was my first time here and my server made fantastic recommendations. You could tell she understood the menu well. Prices are worth the food.
Response: Hey sir ! Thanks for the review:D hope we see you again soon. JeVon GM: Tabla Park View JeVon@supradc.com.

Jessica Shoemaker: Friendly & fast service and delicious food. We went with a Georgian friend who gave it high praise and it did not disappoint. Tabla offers great Georgian fusion dishes that are perfect for family style sharing. Try a bit of everything :)

Rohit Rajendran: We were in the neighborhood and we're looking for some light food to tide us over until dinner when we came across this Georgian restaurant that sounded interesting. We hadn't had Georgian food before so was excited to give it a try. The place had a modern aesthetic with both outdoor and indoor seating. Since it was ridiculously hot outside, we ended up eating indoors but the outdoor space seems great for when the weather is better. My wife is lactose intolerant which unfortunately meant most of the menu was off limits because it had dairy, including the breads. But the staff pointed us to the off the grill section which would work. We ended up trying out the Pork Mtsvadi which was essentially pork kebabs topped with onions, pomegranate seeds, green onion with a side of green ajika. It was delicious! When you get a bite of all the things together, it was perfect blend of flavors. The pomegranate seeds especially helped give it a little something extra. While that's all we got this time so that we didn't ruin our appetite for dinner. I'll have to come back to try some of the other dishes.
Response: Hey Rohit :D ! Thanks again for coming and thanks the review! We hope we see you again soon. JeVon GM of Tabla Park View. JeVon@supradc.com

Alex O: Not authentic Georgian food but something similar adapted for the westerners. I grow up in Eastern Europe where Georgian food are very popular and known for large welcoming juicy very flavorful portions and tabla's food wasn't it at all.Tabla's food is very blend, dry, small portions and overpriced. My lunch check was $50 for two small dishes and 1small margarita, left hungry 😜 Disappointed
Response: Hey Aelx! Thanks for the review. Give me an email before you come down next time. We'll make sure you leave full and very satisfied :D. JeVon GM of Tabla Park View. Reach me at Jevon@supradc.com

Nancy Cosner: My first visit. Went with no expectations. Left pleasantly surprised. I went during happy hour so I could try something that wasn't full menu price. Ordered sliders and fries. Took as much home as I ate. Very, very good.
Response: Thank you for the kind words! We hope we see you soon! JeVon GM of Tabla Park View.

Marc Laplante: We shared 7 plates between 4 of us. All were interesting dishes, and we all had different favorites. Service was so friendly and attentive and helpful (I think her name was Autumn). My favorites were the traditional kachapuri and the fried pork belly.

Elizabeth Dou: It was our first time eating Gregorian food. We ordered the three Khachapuri special (3 for $33), lamb chops and salad plus a red wine flight for my friend. The Khachapuri were good. Favorite was the Elote. The original Ajaruli was a little plain but still tasted good. The Maryland crab cake Ajaruli was just okay. I don’t think the sauce blended well with the crab and cheese. The lamb chops were tasty. The salad was delicious with a nice sized portion for the price. My friend wasn’t a huge fan of the flight and said it tasted like “musty grapefruit”. This place is great if you come with friends and eat family style. Our waitress was very friendly. I would come back to try other Khachapuri and their soup dumplings.

Tamila Torab Eghdami: I dined there once. I think it is the other branch of Supra.🤷🏻‍♀️ This restaurant was more casual than Supra. I think Supra’s food quality was a bit more better. Don’t get me wrong the khachapuri tasted amazing at Tabla too. I personally prefer Supra because of it’s location and also I was able to take many good pics at Supra. But if you are closer to Tabla, try their food!
Response: Thank you for the review! We'll see you soon.: JeVon GM of Tabla DC contact me @ Jevon@supradc.com

Amelia Capilongo: The food here is absolutely incredible. You should try the dumplings, Georgian salad and traditional Khachapuri. They have outdoor seating. All the drinks we got from the bar were all so delicious.

Mala Tang: what do users think?


Zheng Bian: We visited here thinking this was a real authentic Chinese food place, and left with mixed feelings. Service was actually decent. The food, not so much. We ordered an scallion pancake, and found a lot of pepper inside (see picture). This was absolutely not authentic. We also ordered steamed beef dumpling but received fried dumpling instead. For the hotpot combo, it was OK with a good balance of seafood, protein, and vegetable. For some reason though we were charged an additional broth $3.95. From the outside, this place looked very authentic Chinese. Yet there was no one speaking Chinese, from reception to waiter. The menu was English only and it was hard to read through translation. Pictures from previous reviewers showed a much nicer menu and apparently that was no longer the case. It seems the restaurant is under new management. It is a rather exotic than authentic place.

Yeana Park: I had a dry hot pot… it was not bad, but hard to say worth it or delicious or authentic. Also, They don’t care people come in to the restaurant. I waited for about 10 minutes to see a waiter.

Hanning Xu: Better atmosphere than your typical Chinese restaurant. Was very pleased with the dishes ordered, especially the beef/beef tripe in spicy sauce. Generous portions, authentic taste. Will return.

Kaye Eats: Another random spot we found off of loving spicy Asian food. It was good, large portions, pretty filling. Spice level wasn’t as spicy as I thought it would be but the flavors were there. Service was also good through out and I would go back

Ja Young Phillips: Food is good. Really good. I picked up my order and parked at parking garage and I was told that they don’t validate parking for pick ups. Only dine in customers get validation. 10 min parking is free but it could take more than 10 min when you pick up and go back to car and get out of parking garage so be prepared for that to pay $5 from parking more than 10 min to 1 hour. I saw one car parked on the street and picked up food which is very dangerous, maybe he knew already. I had three kids in the car so I wouldn’t do that. Getting in and out of car takes time. It was hard just to pick up food. At the end the lady validated my parking but it was so much hassle going in and out back and forth.

Chang Sui: Malatang is not very fresh, meat wasn’t taste good. Other dishes were ok.

Krys M Gatmaitan: We decided to have dinner for my mother-in-law's birthday after a quick trip to MGM National Harbor. It was a last minute outing, and being the weekend and having seven people in our group we tried to get reservations wherever we could. Mala Tang was the only restaurant that could accommodate us that night, and it would be an understatement to say that we had nothing short of a wonderful experience here. It's located in the George Mason University area, and parking is located in a garage nearby. As a tip, make sure you get the physical ticket rather than paying by card right away, Mala Tang will validate your ticket, effectively making parking free during your meal. Right away, service was just a little slow, but considering it was a busy night with large groups, it was understandable. That gave us plenty of time to figure out what we would order. There are two menus, one with the hot pot offerings and one with cooked dishes to choose from. We ended up going with three sets of hot pot for two combos, which allowed our group to essentially mix and match meats and veggies to share. Everyone got their own personal hot pot, heated by a portable burner. The brisket, wine marinated meat, and mala beef are all highly recommended, but that's not to say that the prawns and flounder were awesome as well. The mala broth is amazing, it is not very spicy at all but packed full of flavor. The sauce bar was well stocked with the usual hot pot sauces. At the end we were very satisfied and full from our meal, and upon mentioning that we were celebrating a birthday, our servers brought out complimentary golden buns with sweet cream for the whole table. And to segue to service quality, it was top notch all around. The servers are all super friendly and patient, and made sure we were well taken care of despite being very busy that night. I would consider this a real gem in Arlington and well worth the trip into the city, highly recommended for a date night or a night out with friends. We will for sure visit again and try the other offerings, which I'm sure will be just as amazing as their hot pot.

YUAN ZUO: Waiting for a loooooong time for the food,and my stomach felt awful after eating 😢I’m here for the ma la tang, and I’m super disappointed. It’s greasy, salty but didn’t have the favor. The meat is fat and not fresh, and it’s not spicy at all😫 felt sad after eating this

Lisa P: Awesome place to get a Hot Pot. We got the spicy one and it still wasn't super hot til the very end so good for beginners. The Hot Pots are individual, so very good for food allergies or vegetarians- no contamination!! Also good for COVID. Don't have to share. outdoor seating was great.

Vivian Westwood: Good quality hotpot. I went out with a friend of mine and we order the hotpot for two deal. We also did some add on of rice cake, noodles and pork intestine. This restaurant is more on the pricy side be expected to spend around $30 + if you want hot pot. I never went to a hot pot restaurant where you pay for everything individual. I will said the quality here is a lot better then the other I went to. The soup is refill for free here. Presentation of the food was clean. Each dishes had it own utensils to pick food to avoid cross contamination. Definitely recommend for good hot pot. No need for all you can eat because portions sizes were good.

Peking Gourmet Inn: what do users think?


Elias Chelala: I just moved back to the U.S. from Japan and was highly impressed with my experience at Peking Gourmet Inn. I know this isn't a Japanese restaurant but the food was delicious and prepared in a timely manner. We ordered the Peking Duck, the Spicy Scallops and the Pork Fried Rice. The Peking Duck was delicious but my friend mentioned the sauce was a little different than what he is used to on the west coast. The walls are full with photos of dignitaries and celebrities and it costs us about $75 when we split the bill in two. The servers were polite and my friend and I left extremely full and satisfied.

Yen Yan: Peking was the old name of Beijing before 1949. I m from Beijing, so when my friends recommended This restaurant, I definitely was excited to try. We a group of 50 people came and had dinner yesterday. The restaurant walls are filled with pictures of politics and celebrities. The seafood (scallops) soup was the best of all. I highly recommend it. The signature chicken 🍗 and lamb 🐑 chop were full of flavors. Joe Yen shrimp 🍤 are very nice, crispy and seasoned just right. I didn’t take picture of the duck, I was a bit disappointed with it. The sauce is not the authentic sauce, and the Duck was not roasted but fried, the meat is a bit too lean, however all my friends that never had Peking Duck before were happy with the duck dish. So I give a 4 stars.

Vanisa Khemanivong: Positives: Food quality, portions, pricing, kind wait staff, ambiance, interior design, cleanliness. This place is PERFECT in every sense of the word. Everything about the food and experience was magnificent. The Peking duck is out of this world. Negatives: None that I could recall. Overall taste: 10/10. Love coming here.

Hank Collier: This place is a jewel! I'd heard about Peking Gourmet for years, so when I found myself in the DC area for the weekend I gave it a try. Don't let the shabby strip mall fool you. The interior is elegant, the service top notch, and the food is superb. Highly recommended.

Albert Phan: Pros: Delicious food overall, esp. those succulent, flavorful, crispy lamb chops. Old school Chinese luxury kind of ambience. Great service (Eddie is the best) Cons: Peking duck is very mediocre, which was so disappointing because this is a very good restaurant otherwise and it’s obviously their namesake.

Sarah: Great service! The staff are very friendly and helpful; our waiter "John" was especially great. The Peking duck was overcooked and dry, but the experience was still overall good. We also ordered the green beans and the gourmet stir fried noodles, both are tasty and very filling!

B K: I used to go to this restaurant so many times so I know what to expect. BUT the quality of food has gone SO BAD recently. Peking duck was very dry and the portions got ridiculously smaller. We also ordered a pork dish too, and it was too oily with weird seasoning. Not worth $ at all. Even one star is too much based on my recent dine in. So sad because it used to be my favorite place. Never coming back.

Monica Gomez: The restaurant is extremely overstated!! The quality of the food, the service, the ambiance and the location do not match up the very high prices! We ordered the Schecuan shrimp ($35), which was tasteless and it came with only some scallions and a bunch of dried whole chili peppers. We also ordered broccoli with mushrooms and, again, tasteless and the broccoli was cut so thick that it was almost impossible to cut and eat, and the mushrooms were from a can! My neighborhood restaurant offers better and more tasty food...I will never, ever eat there again and I do not recommend it to anyone!

Adriana Rakshana: The peking duck is not as good as George Bush let's us believe (his favorite restaurant apparently). Good ol' George - always letting us down. Maybe it was just our meal but the duck was a little dry/overcooked. It is enough for 2 people though so don't feel the need to order another dish unless you're extremely hungry. We got the five spice beef and asked for it to be made very spicy. It was okay, not terribly spicy at all - more sour than spicy tbh. The service was great though, incredibly personable and efficient staff!

Eric Hernandez: Best Peking duck anywhere. There has never been anything there that I did not like. There is a reason why the walls are covered with pictures of celebrities and the powerful who have eaten there. People in the know eat where the food is good. I liked it enough that I had my graduation dinner there 20 years ago. Now that my kids are old enough, I brought my family to DC for vacation and made a point of bringing them here so that they could know why this was one of my favorite Chinese restaurants of all time.

China Chilcano by José Andrés: what do users think?


Mohit Mehtaji: Great place for some good fusion food. Service is pretty quick and recommend you get a reservation as it does get pretty full during peak dinner hours. You can’t go wrong with the Pisco Sour here. The dim sum were good but nothing special and possible good for trying it one time. The noodles were great and if you get a side of the house made hot sauce it adds a bit more flavor.

Brandon Feldman: This is an incredibly unique spot! The location is great for only being a few blocks from the national mall, the ambiance was relaxing, and the food was amazingly delicious. A Peruvian/Chinese/Japanese restaurant is a unique combination and a brand new experience. The flavors were absolutely fantastic, the presentation was on point, and the service was top-notch. And to top it all off, it is very reasonably priced for such high quality.5 stars all around!

Andy Zavala: I was looking for a nice romantic date night and China Chilcano fit the spot just right. I first called them to check if they had seating/reservations for later the same day and they were super helpful and I booked a time no problem. The restaurant is in the heart of DC so parking may be difficult but the food and service is worth it. The restaurant fuses peruvian dishes with Asian mixes which was so delicious. We tried the classic ceviche and a few other dishes that I unfortunately forgot what are called at this point, but I don’t think you can really go wrong with anything here. They do have a priced option kind of like a “buffet” for around $60 and you get to try as many dishes as you want. So if you really want to explore the dishes here, I’d recommend that! You’ll at least be eating 2-3 dishes. Will definitely come back again.

MrIrali: One of the best restaurants in DC, and that says a lot. We ordered the chef’s selection, and we were not disappointed. Head chef Will Fung even came out and spoke with our table and really left an impression on us. The food is a blend of Peruvian food and Chinese/Japanese. And it is incredible. Go here.

Shachar Ashkenazi: The atmosphere is great, everything we ordered was extremely delicious - both the food and the drinks were great. The stuff were friendly and the decoration of this place is stunning! The flavors combination is unique, it is a must visit restaurant!

Kayla F: Words cannot express how delicious every step of this meal was. We tried a little bit of a few different items and each bite was full of flavor. I highly recommend ordering across the menu and sharing lots of plates.

Anca Balinisteanu: Great location but insane drive if you come from outside DC….interesting menu, but you need a dictionary 🙂 We ordered pork belly sanguche de chsncho and dim sum for starters. Very good! On to the main dishes: rice noodles and pacific wild shrimp. All delicious. And very interesting taste combinations of flavors. We’ll try to make it a regular stop!

Max Rosen: Immaculate menu of diverse food choices that will take your palate around the world from Peru, to China, to Japan. I ordered the chicken stir fry which was delish - great portion, beautiful presentation, even better taste. The shishito peppers are a must for larger parties, well seasoned and crunchy. Ambiance is inviting and the dining room is well decorated and museum-like. Hector, our waiter and bartender, couldn’t have been nicer and accommodated food allergies with care. A must try!

Sabrina R Robinson: Every dish was delicious, wish I’d gotten good pics of everything so I could share how wonderful it was but we ate it so fast! Shishito peppers 🌶 were a good appetizer. Nice snack and super fun bc every few bites you’d get a spicy one. Called the roulette pepper for that reason! The big eye tuna ceviche was delicious. The hamachi ceviche was absolutely our favorite -buttery and citrusy- I could eat it every day. Drinks were classic w a twist. The entree portions were fair ( large in my opinion, in a good way) especially after having all those appetizers. Fun bright flavors in some, and comfort food vibes in others. The restaurant was so beautiful and cozy in the daylight. Staff was super friendly and SO attentive. When it got dark out (with the lack of natural light) the neon ceiling decor made the entire place super yellow and dim- it was definitely an interesting vibe and I wish I could’ve seen the beautiful colors of my food. Can’t wait to go again !

Adriana Rakshana: Excellent quality and unique flavors. Definitely try out the suspiro limeña for dessert and the ceviche pulpo. The vibe of the place is nice too; great for a date! We didn't need a reservation for lunch on a Saturday just fyi!

Thip Khao Restaurant: what do users think?


Rebecca Peters: Thrilled to find this lovely spot. The Naem Khao stole the show - excellent textured & iconic flavors. Was disappointed in the Khao Soi, I’m sorry to say - lacked depth and flavor, though a twist of lime helped a bit. Would try a different main next time. Definitely nice to have vegetarian and vegan options on the menu. The dessert (one option) was heavenly - a sweet rice base with a mango-coconut porridge, not too sugary but an excellent way to round out the meal. I’d definite go back, but try a different main course next time. Reservations are a good idea, though 2 people might be able to squeeze in depending on the night.

Khamesh Prashad: Thip Khao is a great little intimate date night restaurant. They offer outdoor and indoor dining. Our table was ready when we arrived for dinner and the service was very pleasant. All of the food was delicious with the exception of the pork and rice which I felt lacked a bit of flavor and the rice was dry and hard. But other than that 1 dish missing the mark, everything else was fantastic. The Jerry was very tasty and perfect texture. The papaya salad with the Laotian level of spice really pushed it. I handle a lot of spice, so it wasn't too bad for my but my date really had a bit of a shock when she tried it as I also noticed the table next to me sweating from the heat. But that is to be expected when eating from a place that takes pride in their level of spicy and taste. The drinks were fantastic and the noodles were a great soft taste after having the papaya salad. All in all I'd happily return and explore more of the menu.
Response: Thank you for the wonderfully written the 5-Star review Khamesh! We hope to see you again soon.

Toteona Gray: Really enjoyed my meal here! Since it was just me, I was easily able to get a table at the bar as soon as I came as a walk in. It is pretty busy it seems on Friday nights. However, the bartender was chill and attentive to serving me even though I didn’t buy liquor. The prices I believe were average. It was my first time having Loation (if that is how you would say it/sorry) and I would love to come back again some time. :D

Manjari Rudra: Amazing place to hang out!! Great food, great ambience, budget friendly. It’s a must try.

Joanna Selkridge: Food was good, service was good. In comparison to similar food styles (thai & vietnamese) its very good. But for me personally it was missing that wow factor.. but the food is good. They were busy and we were still served promptly. I would reccomend anyone to go for the experience. The chicken hearts were a surprise delicacy. It didn't taste like you would think.

Sokhoeun Chau: We enjoyed everything we had ordered, which was a lot of dishes. The service was also excellent. We're definitely going back.

Jennifer Liang: Incredible food and service. The staff are quite kind and the ambience is lovely. The food is priced reasonably given their large portions. Highly recommend checking out their desserts! Would come again.

Josh Axelrod: The best of the best in DC, you will not be disappointed! This place is bustling with eager diners, who've likely heard how heavenly the food is here. Start your meal with the Naem Khao salad, but from there you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. A divine DC meal for the books.

Priyanka Dangol: Definitely one of my favourite places in DC! A must go spot for vegetarians as everything was so so flavourful. We went there on a Thursday and it got busier towards the end of the night so I would suggest reserving before you go. We had the popular Naem Khao (highly deserving of all the hype it gets), the two tofu dishes on the menu (both which were amazing! I loved the dill tofu wrapped inside banana leaves) and the pumpkin for dessert! Just writing this review is making my mouth water

Felix Torres: The fish sauce smell will hit you as soon as you walk in the door and that's when you know its going to be a good meal. The service was very quick, and the prices really aren't bad for amount and quality of the food and especially considering its a bit of a trendy place too. The sesame beef 'jerky' and the tom sum salads were a great way to start the meal meal and went really good together actually. The pork belly dish -forget the name- was the star of show for us. Never had pork belly served like that before, perfectly bright flavors with balanced fat and acidity, lots of ginger and onions, so good.

Dolan Uyghur Restaurant: what do users think?


Kayla N: Overall, the quality of the food was not impressive. Every dish we ordered was good, but it was like there could be something to be improved with it. The veggies included in the pearled noodle dish didn’t seem to match so well, the lamb kebab seemed to be a little overcooked, and the pumpkin dumplings were definitely just square cuts of butternut squash in a dumpling wrapper. The dessert also didn’t taste super fresh. Service was very slow as well, even though they were not very busy in terms of the restaurant itself being packed. It was good but I wouldn’t come back just because none of the dishes stood out and tasted prettty average.
Response: We appreciate your feedback, Kayla! We sincerely apologize that your experience with our dishes such as our Pearled Noodles, Lamb Kebab, Kawa Manta, dessert, and our service was not up to your standards, which is also far from ours. We will continue to strive every day to operate at the highest standards based on the expectations of our customers, and continue to offer the best service and the highest quality and authentic halal food that characterizes our Uyghur culture. We hope you give us another opportunity to make it up to you and serve you with our best. Have a great week, best regards!

Frank Tao: The food tastes all right and I completely get it when people say they are delicious and special. However, having been to Xinjiang myself, I know it is not quite that authentic. There dishes rely somewhat too much on the sauces (and the red bell peppers), which often provides a sweet/sour flavor that covers the original flavor of the ingredients. Even if you only know a bit about Middle Eastern food, you know they don't make these complicated meshed-up dishes. The service was not good. We went to there in late Jan., and I don't know why they didn't turn the heat up. We all felt cold inside and the food went cold pretty quickly. This is bad for kebabs. The waiter/waitress are impassionate. This is less of their attitude but more of their lack of experiences/not being comfortable working in the hospitality industry. They came too early for orders and for checks.
Response: We appreciate your detailed review, Frank! We sincerely apologize that our dishes and service did not completely meet your expectations, and we are sorry to read that your experience with the weather inside our facilities was not to your liking and that you were uncomfortable. These situations are well below our standards and we will make sure that they do not happen again, and if for any reason you feel again that the climate inside the restaurant is not comfortable, do not hesitate to let us know and we will do our best to make your experience as pleasant as possible. We hope you will give us another opportunity to make it up to you and give you a five star experience. All the best to you and your family!

Fiona Alison Kibblewhite: The food here is truly excellent! I got the korma chop and really loved it. The noodles in particular are phenomenal. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for great Uyghur food!
Response: Thank you a lot for your feedback, Fiona! We are glad to know that you enjoyed our Korma Chop, one of the most requested dishes by our customers! We appreciate your support and look forward to your next visit and offering you more of our uyghur specialties. All the best to you!

Josh Axelrod: Wow. This is one of DC's crown jewels of ethnic dining. You've likely never had Uyghur food before, which means you're in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat. Because of the Uyghurs' geography in far-west China, their cuisine combines Asian ingredients like hand-pulled noodles with out-of-this world Middle Eastern and Turkic flavors. The Korma Chop and Laghman are must orders along with a French press of homemade tea.
Response: We really appreciate your support and best review, Josh! We are happy to know that your experience with our dishes such as the Korma Chop and Laghman was pleasant, in addition to our authentic tea. Our goal is definitely to bring each of our clients the best of our Uighur culture through our flavors. We are happy that you keep a piece of our culture in your memory. We hope to serve you again very soon. All the best to you!

Yi Jun Zhou: For starters, I want to make it clear that the food isn't bad at all, but it just felt too underwhelming wrt the 4 6 stars review on Google. It felt too much like a quick supper mom cooks to feed her children, so there's just something missing in the flavour, not like restaurant grade food. The Kebabs lacked flavour and the other dishes were mostly saucy and generally made quite salty with lots of bell peppers, celeries, and tomatoes. The staff was nice and welcoming, but for 40$ per person, it definitely lacked umami/savouriness in general!
Response: Thank you very much for your feedback, Yi! We genuinely apologize that your experience with the flavors of our dishes did not live up to your expectations, which is also far from our standards. We will continue to strive every day to provide the most delicious and authentic Uyghur food to each of our customers and to make sure that this does not happen again. We invite you to contact us at feddback@dolanuyghur.com for further communication, and we hope you will give us another opportunity to make it up to you and ensure that we provide you with an experience that lives up to your standards. Best wishes to you!

Zhanna :: we specially stopped in Washington for the Uyghur restaurant, but unfortunately we were disappointed. The dishes are strongly Americanized, the waiter does not understand the Uyghur cuisine at all, the chiefs are Indonesians. Complete disappointment. Ребят, к сожалению блюда американизированы и не особо вкусно (((
Response: Thank you for your feedback, Zhanna! We genuinely apologize if your experience with our dishes was not up to your expectations, which is not up to ours either, but I can assure you as the Restaurant proprietor, Uyghur and originally a native of the Ghulja area, that our food has the unique and authentic flavors that define our culture. We are a traditional Uyghur restaurant founded and operated by Uyghurs who love and respect our own Uyghur food and culture. We believe food is one of the most decisive parts of a cultural definition. Our primary goal and purpose are to bring our most traditional food and flavors to our customers. This is why we called our restaurant Dolan, which is representing the most civilized and precise history of Uyghurs. We invite you to contact us at feedback@dolanuyghur.com for more details about your order so that we can serve you with our best based on your expectations the next time you visit us. Hope you had a Happy New Year. Best regards!

MacKenzie Sexton: fantastic food and efficient, friendly service! i had the mushroom salad and the korma chop with beef. They were both excellent. the beef and noodles in the korma chop were cooked and seasoned wonderfully.
Response: Thanks for your best review, MacKenzie! We're glad to know that you enjoyed our Mushroom Salad and Korma Chop with beef and that you found our service efficient and friendly. We look forward to serving you again soon, best regards!

Lindsey Stiles: We ordered take out from Dolan last night and it was amazing! They have gluten free options (I got the dry fried chicken and green beans) and everything was delicious!
Response: We really appreciate your review, Lindsey! We're glad you enjoyed our gluten free menu with dishes like the dry fried chicken and green beans. Every day we work to offer our customers the best of our authentic flavors while taking into account their dietary preferences. We look forward to serving you again with our best and offering you more of our varied menu. Best wishes!

Jarin Tasnim: Food was soooooo good. Also I got perfect flavor with korma chop. “Want to go again???” Yessssssssssssssssssss🤩. But samsa should be beef or chicken.
Response: We are delighted with your review, Jarin. We are extremely glad that you enjoyed the dining experience at Uyghur, our Korma chop and thank you for choosing us. Reviews like yours help us to improve every day, we will take your feedback on our Samsa into consideration. We are a blend of Central Asian flavors that makes us unique and authentic, but at the same time with a homemade touch of familiar taste. We look forward to your next visit and serving you with our best, we wish you the best!

Iram Zafar: The menu has a lot of delicious options so it was hard To choose from. The food was tasty and the service was fast with bringing the food out! The kabobs are super cheap, but they’re delicious. My favorite things about this place is the combination of savory spices on the pulled noodles. However, I did have to wave the waiter down quite a bit! Overall, I recommend this place!
Response: We are very grateful for your review, Iram! We are glad to know that you enjoyed our dishes such as our Kebabs and Hand-Pulled Noodles; on the other hand, we apologize if your experience with our service did not completely meet your expectations. We will keep working hard to continue providing the best service and authentic Halal food. Thank you for recommending us and we look forward to having you back to serve you with our best again soon! All the best to you!

Northwest Chinese Food: what do users think?


Gabriel Mata: This is one of the few places that I frequent, with the drive from DC. I enjoy all the flavors and the spices. I got the vegetarian option which I thought was amazing and hearty for being just vegetables and noodles. I look forward to trying all of the menu. D 12, the item, is one of my favorites. The vinegar peanuts and the Dan Dan noodles are phenomenal and you should definitely try them. The plum juice was the new thing for me to try and I highly recommend it. The servers were casual and young so you may have to wave them down but the food experience it’s just amazing and I look forward to continuing to dine often.

Kaela Singh: 10/10 Everything here was excellent. The fruit tea was my favorite. It was refreshing and flavorful. I got the Beef noodle soup, the beef was so tender and the noodles were nice and chewy. The customer service was great. I would definitely be back here again.👍 Pictures: Rose Lychee Tea, Specialty Fruit Tea, Beef Noodle Soup, Spicy Pan fried Lamb Noodles

ken logsdon jr.: Most authentic Chinese cuisine I've had in the US. Walls are well decorated with magazine and newspaper reviews and awards. Looks unassuming along college park main street (route 1 balt Ave) but the tastes and smells inside are worth ducking in. Main menu, specials, and assortment of teas and other drinks. Easy in and out, with lots of appetizers and light plates along with traditional entrees. But if you're looking for standard American Chinese takeout fare (gen zaos, kung Pao, etc) this ain't the place.

Chris W.: Not your average "Chinese" restaurant. Fantastic food, reasonable prices, good service. Don't go there expecting the same foods you'd find at a random carryout place, or Panda Express. Northwest Chinese serves a wide array of noodles, and soups mixed with a cornucopia of vegetable and meat options. My only complaint, is the entrée I ordered had a 🌶 icon next to it. I was expecting it to be spicy, and it really wasn't even mildly spicy. That being said, I still loved the dish. One of the best food options in CP hands down.

Dia Berrios: Everything I got was so good my favorite were the Dan Dan noodles they have a great level of heat, the peanuts add good texture, the minced pork in it is delicious. The dumplings with hot oil are bomb. The lamb skewers were good but too dry for my liking. Overall the flavor and spice level is amazing!

Eunice: Beef noodle soup, peanuts, and Liangpi. For take out. My second time here for a while. They have remodeled the inside. The food is always decent and flavorful. I like the soup base of beef noodle soup but the beef was a bit dry and there was very little veggies in it. Liangpi was tasty. The peanuts in vinegary sauce was a great snack to go with a beer if you want. The service was great and quick. The place looked very clean and was busy even after lunch time.

D'Atra Montgomery: Stopped by this place on a whim and glad I did. Ordered the spicy beef and stewed pork mo, as well as two orders of red oil sesame dumpling. The flavor, the bread and the dumpling fillings were amazing. I wish the sandwiches were bigger and that we could have the option to pan fry the dumplings. However, I definitely plan to come back to try to noodle dishes and other sandwich options

Jon Dietrich: I’m so happy this place is close enough for us to visit often. I’ve tried a good portion of the menu and everything has been fantastic. The food is very high quality and made well. My favorites are the pan fried noodles in an egg pancake, the summer special cold liang pi/round noodles with peanut sauce, and the cumin lamb flatbread or skewers. I also love that they have a portable card reader so you can pop your card in, tip, and be on your way right when you ask for the bill. We always leave happy.

Emmy: Hot oil seared noodles are chewy, spicy, just about perfect.Dan dan noodles were a bit underwhelming. Spice was right, noodles were a bit limp. Service was great. Fast. Hot. Easy in and out.

C K: I definitely recommend the lamb skewers and potato salad:)Recently they hired new servers, and the entire atmosphere has improved. Thank you for the great service!

Chen's Gourmet: what do users think?


K. Margot Mercer: We visited family in DC for 10 days and on day 3 we ordered a huge vegetarian meal from Chen's. In the following days, our meat-eating parents were requesting another order so we had another huge feast. What a delight and a treat this place is - some of the best fake meat I've ever had (and being veg for 30 years, that is saying a lot). It's fresh, it's vibrant, it's scrumptious. I can't say enough good things about the food here, you feel like royalty eating a plate of this food. After both meals we took a pen to the menu to put a heart next to the items we loved most and, well, everything we ordered got a heart both times. Phenomenal. Go ahead and get a double order of the Vegetarian Crispy Beef, it was everyone's favourite. I can't believe I didn't snap a photo, too excited to dig in I guess. Best food of our holiday. Thanks, Chen's! Keep up the great work.

Constantin Jessen: By far my favorite Chinese restaurant on the east coast. I especially like the General Tso as well as their crispy beef. The veggies taste fresh and are not overcooked. They use a little bit of sesame oil in their rice which gives it that little bit of extra flavor. Every time I come to the DC area I make a point to stop by here. Absolutely delicious.

Jessica Pic: Excellent vegan options. The mock chicken is exceptional. The veggie dumplings are a favorite. The best Chinese we’ve had in the city.

Juan Guido: I called at 11:30am got there at 12:30pm and my order wasn’t ready. The owner said he wasn’t take phone orders until i got their.

Faisal Khan: Gourmet is right. Chen's offers some delicious and fair priced food with a wealthy sized portions. It's not a large place and doesn't have much space to eat, but I'd you do sit and eat, you can browse down at the MacArthur Blv atmospheres and people watch. To end it off, the chefs are friendly and the food is fantastic. Everything just tastes very authentic and sits just right. I'd recommend getting their Sesame Chicken, as it's easily their best dish!

Simone Dedrick: Places order online. Attempted to add. Person indicated they did not understand. Did not even fix original order. Then called and said order ready and implied it was our fault. Have all we always loved Chen's but never again. Looking now for good Chinese. Open to suggestions....

Dylan Worsoff: Food was delicious but i found this piece of metal in my meal. Super weird, now im kind of worried.

Jimmy Cruz: The food was ok, the problem is the time it takes to make the food, my order took hour and a half to have it made, I was there for lunch time, even though I called 35 minutes before noon (lunchtime) by the time I received the food my lunchtime was already over, the one thing I notice it is a one man does it all, he does not have help, he cooks, he answer the phone, he package the food, he charges, he takes orders, all at the same time and people line up and he does not takes some orders due to the time, and while he is cooking, so if you are in a hurry I do not recomend this place unless you want to wait a long time, this happens at lunchtime, I have no idea how it is the rest of the day

Deng Phua: Chen’s Gourmet is a gem in the wall. Inconspicuously hidden above a few steps and modestly colored so that it’s wall blend into its surroundings, the only thing that could possibly garner and attention visually is it’s beautiful sign out front. That being said, the food is otherworldly. Rarely do I have Americanized Chinese cuisine that tastes of high quality ingredients, and unique recipe originality, but Chen’s does exactly that. The General Tso’s is beautifully done, under a layer of thick sweet and spicy sauce with large chunks of crunchy fried white meat chicken. The Kung Pao chicken and shrimp is also marvelous, done with a take airing more on the traditional palate, but excluding all the typical medley of random vegetables that offer little to the experience. Overall, Chen’s Gourmet provides an excellent dining experience, where the food is phenomenal, the owner and chef and the rest of the employees are kind and generous, and the atmosphere, in spite of its modest exterior, boasts a little restaurant that the people of the Palisades are proud to call their own.

Gabe: I don’t understand the hype…it’s average at best and overpriced as hell for what it is. Got the shrimp and veggie lo mein and both didn’t have much flavor. Meh! Not getting again.

Supra: what do users think?


bloodlust red: I went this place right before the COVID-19 pandemic, probably the one of the last great restaurant experiences I was able to enjoy. This is the only Georgian Food, not the state of Georgia in the South, but Georgia as a country next to Russia, I have had a chance to experience and it was phenomenon. Very clean and nice and bright interior and very nice staffs. Pate appetizer was very good yet the food I enjoyed most was a chicken soup, the main dish. Don't be blinded by the name because it was not a typical chicken soup you have any other place. I guess Georgian in the Eastern Europe truly know how to make western style chicken soup because once you have it, you won't see western style chicken soup same way again. Definitely, a great restaurant to visit for food and experience, specially during cold winter day for the main dish of the Georgian style chicken soup.

Lesia Zintchouk: Very nicely designed restaurant offering traditional Georgian (country Georgia) cuisine and special selection of qvevri wines. Yummy dishes, crafted with love and homemade family feel. Many choices on the menu for vegetarians and gluten-free or a bit of everything for omnivores like myself. Big fancy glasses for the wines full of big flavor. Love, love, love Georgian wines and welcoming customs. Well maintained and well staffed, beautiful restaurant.
Response: Hey Lesia- thank you so much for your thoughtful review and we're so happy you enjoyed.

Sam M: I never had Georgian cuisine, but it was very delicious. I walked into this restaurant and notice that the place is really clean and roomy. They also have outdoor seating available. I enjoyed pretty much all the dishes that I ordered from here. I started my brunch with salad and yogurt dishes which were light and delightful. Khinkali, which is huge Georgian dumpling with either meat or potato and cheese, was really good and very filling. But the star of the show was Ajaruli! It is a boat shaped bread with cheese, egg, and butter on top. The waiter mixed those ingredients right in front of me and it was quiet entertaining. This was definitely my favorite dish! The bread was soft and the cheese and egg mix was phenomenal. Also, if you were planning to order soft drinks, I would recommend ordering one of their pear flavored soda! Really refreshing. Overall, I had a great experience from here and definitely plan to come back sometime soon.
Response: Hey, Sang, thanks so much for your detailed review and we're so happy that you loved brunch. Come and see us for a happy hour ajaruli next time!

Sam Askenas: Georgian food is delicious. Everything was coooked perfectly with the appropriate amount of cheesiness. We opted for the more traditional dishes with less of the fanfare, and we were very pleased. The drinks were lovely. Big bramble guys
Response: Hey Sam- we're so glad you enjoyed!

AJ Martinez: The service was excellent. The soup dumplings tasted amazing, I just wish someone would have told us how to eat them. The veggie platter had good variety but the flavor was nothing special. The sausage tasted very good.
Response: Thanks so much, AJ, for the feedback and compliments! We can't wait to have you back.

Naomi: Came in for restaurant week. Definitely the best introduction to Georgian cuisine one could ask for! Great service and delicious food. Make sure to sneak around the corner and see the murals at the bar!

Megan Hislop: Honestly one of the best dining experiences out I've had in years. My friend and I failed to make a reservation for a Friday night, so we're told bar seating only. Little did we know the bar area is like it's own mini restaurant with full on seating and the most amazing bartender meets waiter, Yousef!! Not only was everything we ate (and drank) was so incredibly delicious, but yousef and the entire tram were so welcoming and engaging and thoughtful. Try some Georgian Amber wine. We ended up staying for nearly 4 hours!

Fiorella Hidalgo: Went during Restaurant Week to celebrate with my boyfriend. The food was so outstanding, the flavors were so rich and felt somewhat homey (which is weird because I’m from South America hahah, maybe was the cornmeal bread-mchadi that tastes exactly like Ecuadorian tortilla de maíz!!!). Service 10/10 our server was so nice and funny, great recommendation for drinks. Cocktail not pictured and if you are not a fan of beer, their Ukrainian beer was really good (coming from a non beer drinker lol). Coming back soon to celebrate my birthday! Hahah
Response: Hey Fiorella, we're so happy to hear that you enjoyed and thank you for taking the time to write a review. Join us for Happy Hour sometime from 5-7pm at the bar!

cassandra bierworth: Wonderful place! The wait staff is amazing and so attentive. They will help answer any questions you have. The food was great! It was exciting trying different dishes and the cocktails were nice as well.
Response: Hey Cassandra, we're so happy to hear that you enjoyed and thank you for taking the time to write a review. Join us for Happy Hour sometime from 5-7pm at the bar!

Cobun Zweifel-Keegan: Friendly atmosphere, wonderful food. Great for a satisfying warm brunch on a cold day. The soup dumplings are made with thick homemade dough. Tasty!

Old Europe: what do users think?


Ryan Arnt: I found this place about 20 years ago. I love german food and drinks and they do a very good job. The Hunter's Schnitzel, sausage plate, red cabbage cucumber salad are all great. Kind of a hole in the wall place but I always enjoy eating here on every trip to DC.

WABBA: A good around tasty menu, with well cooked traditional meals including Pork or Chicken Snitzel. Fair priced drinks 🍸 adds to the enjoyable experience. A good dinner choice 1 night whilst you're here in Washington DC.

Vasyl Zhepikov: Hands down the best german food in US. 🇩🇪 It is not cheap imitation , but really good authentic food. Hand made sauercraft. 🤤 On pics: Sausage combo with authentic mustard. Baked brie with jam and fruits. And of course German beer. The interior is the most pleasing to say the least.

Landis Rojas: My first time here! I felt very comfortable. Also I forgot to take food pictures because the german food it was super tasty! The service is super good and attentive. Yo need a reservation in this restaurant and you really feel in s German restaurant! I really Recommend it!

Devin Nguyen: I enjoy Old Europe restaurant for its service, antique atmosphere, and certified-authentic German food! As someone who has visited Germany and Austria, I can confirm that the food is cooked according to traditional German flavors and preparation. The images I have included illustrate the restaurant’s quality and art of German culture and cuisine. My experience at this family-owned business makes me feel as if I entered a time capsule into history.

Mohan Sun: This is one of the best German restaurants in town - excellent food, great beers, and friendly owner and staff. Back before Covid, there was this old gentlemen in suspenders that would always play piano on weekends. That’s always one of my fondest memories. I had my birthday celebrations there a couple of times and they were always a blast. This restaurant veteran opened its doors in 1948 serving local customers, so please come and support them! Plus, you really can’t go wrong with a schnitzel and boot of beer!

K K: Wow! Why haven't I been going here every week? Great food, elevated flavors, friendly service, nice German beer list, bus boy that plays showtimes on the piano...c'mon you can't find this anywhere else in DC! Treated me like a king for Father's day. Wish they had a patio... but that is minor. What a hidden secret.
Response: Hi K K, thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. Please come back and visit us soon!

Sam Chin: A long time local business with good authentic food and warm atmosphere. Amazing steins, cuckoo clock, and crests. They actually speak German and are good people. Support local!!

Darren H: I have been going to this place for about 18 years and love it. The desserts have recently gotten better. I always complained that the Sacher Torte was a tad dry, but this no longer seems to be the case. The appetizers, beer, and dinner are all so good that I have a hard time ordering sometimes.

Rinat Hadashi: We ate dinner: April treat, potato pancakes and schnitzel. Beverage and wine. Paid 92$.The food was tasty and very beautifully placed on the plate. The service was super nice and helpful.Recommended!

New Dynasty: what do users think?


Molly Cooper: This place was wonderful!! I got the sesame tofu and broccoli and substitute rice for steamed veggies, plus a jasmine green tea. The food was so good! This is one of the best tofu dishes I’ve ever had, it was still crispy and the sauce was delicious. The vegetables were done perfectly, and I think my friends thoroughly enjoyed their meals too. I will come back here AS SOON as I come back to DC. I can’t wait :)!!
Response: What a lovely review! Thank you, Molly! We're happy you love New Dynasty as much as we do. We hope we'll see you again soon!

imtiaz ahmad: Totally enjoyed the food and the service. I would highly recommend this place if you like Chinese food and reasonable prices. You won’t be disappointed!
Response: Thank you for the kind review, Imtiaz! We're happy you enjoy your time at New Dynasty and like our food. We hope to see you again, soon!

Doa Al: We tried many different things in the menu. Everything came out hot and fresh. We got chicken corn soup, orange chicken, sesame chicken, fried rice, three flavor lo mein, cream cheese wontons and spring rolls. Love that it was halal since there are not much halal Chinese options in the area

Nadeem Khaliq: Something’s never change! And that’s a good thing in this case. One of the most authentic Chinese halal spots around! Always clean made to order fresh Chinese. Worth the trip or a casual drop in.
Response: Thank you for your review, Nadeem! We do try to keep things authentic, so glad you enjoy our food!

Austin Graff: If you like Chinese takeout, Dupont Circle's new Dynasty does a good job. When my family of three did a staycation at a nearby hotel, we ordered pick up via Uber Eats and it was ready within 15 minutes of ordering on a Friday evening. To feed the three of us, we ordered wonton soup, Mongolian Beef, General Tsao's Chicken and Orange Chicken. The three main dishes came with steamed rice. Each was tasty, but the winner was the General Tsao's Chicken. The Mongolian Beef was good, but it was mainly onions with little beef. Service was friendly and prices decent for an expensive city like Washington, D.C.
Response: Thank you for your review, Austin! We are happy to serve your family on your staycation. Please visit us again when you are in DC.

Moiz Arif: Really liked the taste of the dishes we ordered in a long time. Will definitely order again.
Response: Thank you for your review, Moiz! We hope to see you again soon!

Abdul Syamsuddin: Have been here a couple of times during my visit to DC. Ordered tofu with mixed vegetables, shrimp noodles, and fried rice. It was so authentic so I could miss home that much. The staff was also friendly so we could have a talk before we left. If I'm not being apart 16,426Km away, this will be my favorite place to have dinner with family. Thank you for serving such a lovely dish so I could miss this place so much.
Response: What a heartwarming review. Thank you, Abdul! We hope to see you when you are in DC again!

Eddies: Solid little Chinese eatery and longtime stand-by in the Circle. They have a good mix of standard Chinese/American as well as healthy and more traditional Chinese fare. Place is clean, food is always fresh and hot, and prices are generally competitive for the area.
Response: Thank you for the review, Eddies! We hope to see you again soon!

A: it was fine. I loved the lo mein and the timeliness, so 3 stars there, but 2 stars off for the overcooked, tough shrimp, and the undercooked broccoli. its a little pricey for a carryout spot so I was expecting a little bit better

Faizah Zafar: Amazing food, great service, affordable prices, and fully Halal! We drove from Florida and this was the best Chinese food we ever had. I hope to come back one day.
Response: Thank you for your review, Faizah! Please do visit us again whenever you are in DC!
