This place is terrible. Food is cold, most all items are lacking in flavor. Won ton soup is good, not the won tons themselves though. Tea is basic as expected, for the speed of the food the fact that it comes out cold is rediculous....More

Loved the crispy pork belly, the fried rice was great, but the dumplings... not worth a penny. Dry and no taste. Dont need to order drinks, they offer tea.

Visited this restaurant back in April 2018 while staying in DC for 3 days. Chinatown generally was disappointing as an area. This restaurant was fairly basic although busy. Food was nothing special and I have had far better chinese food elsewhere e.g. San Francisco.
