Although it was more than enough for me, the portion size is small for the price. Gave me my food and I had to ask for a fork, that was hidden behind the counter where all the condiments were. At least they could have provided...a fork in my to -go order?? The fried rice was BLAH and old/stale tasting-not fresh at all. Since the pandemic customer service is lacking. I frequented this place all the time for their buffet (pre-covid) and it doesn't seem they have bounced back. I asked to use the restroom while waiting for my food and was told "no" there was none. Really?? I've used that bathroom at least 10 different times in the past..smh. I'm done, too many other local businesses/eateries to give my hard-earned money.More

Can't believe it took me so long to try this Chinese takeout place. It was the last one around us I hadn't tried, and I delayed because I had been so disappointed by the others. BUT, THIS restaurant was GREAT!!! They have online ordering, give...you an ACCURATE estimation of when your food will be ready for pickup, and the food was hot and delicious!!! We will be coming back!!! Thank you Old Beijing Cafe!!!! You are my new favorite Chinese takeout place!!More

Have not been here for several years. Taken here by a friend for lunch. Surprised to see a small but decent buffet - about 10-14 items. All food was good to very good and hot and fresh. The owner served our tea and checked on...us frequently. Though small by most buffet standards, it was tasty and a good quality. There was a steady flow of customers for eat-in and carryout. Price was about $7 for all you cared to eat. The owner encouraged seconds! Nice stop for lunch! And a nice "new" find. We'll go back when in the area.More

My husband and I stopped here in the hopes of finding a good Chinese restaurant in the Charlotte Hall, MD area and were not disappointed. When we arrived, we were promptly seated and the waitress came quickly to take our orders. My husband ordered the...General Tso's Chicken and I decided to have two appetizers -- the Teriyaki Steak on a Stick and Pan-Fried Dumplings. The food was on the table in a matter of minutes and was piping hot, obviously right off the grill/wok. The meat was tender and juicy and the dumplings were very good. My only criticism is that while everything tasted good, it could be a little more flavorful. My husband ordered the General Tso's Chicken to be spicy and it was not. The Steak, while tender, could have had a more flavorful sauce. But, overall, it was a good meal and is the best Chinese food we have found in the Waldorf/Charlotte Hall area. Prices were very reasonable.More

This is our third visit. Very good food, excellent service and fair sized portions. We chose to share what we all purchased which made the meal and experience better. I will return whenever I'm in the area.

Have been here 3 times in the past 2 months since first trying it out on the advice from my father in law. The prices are about average,the food is WELL above! Very nice and accommodating staff. The inside is on the small side, maybe...7 tables, but since the majority of their business is takeout getting a nice sized booth has never been a problem. If you like this type of food I would definitely recommend it. .More

We frequent Old Bejing at least twice a month. It's my families favorite place for Chinese and sushi. Decent prices and you get large portions. It's never greasy or heavy.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I am very pleased. The food was cooked perfectly and was priced accordingly. Very helpful and courteous staff and impeccably clean seating area. This is a restaurant I will return to.

This chinese food is great quality and is seasoned well. The meat is always tender in the various dishes and the sushi is a MUST. Love, love, love this place. The ambiance is more of a quick service chinese take-out and there is the door...constantly being opened creates a drafty cold environment in the winter....so sit in the back. If you go for lunch, they have a buffet.More

Excellent food. Place is usually busy. Everything is hot and fresh. Not your usual salty and sweet but food actually has flavor. Sushi is pretty good too.
