This restaurant offers the choices common to most Chinese restaurants. The food was quite good and was served in lightning fast fashion! The interior is modest but clean and well maintained. The location is convenient to the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel and the Adams Morgan...More

Very conveniently located to the Wardman Park Area. Reasonable prices with good food and service. This is kind of our late night stop if we need to finish off the night with a substantial meal. Nothing fancy but a steady choice.

The service was good and our server was friendly, but the food was ordinary. Not bad, but nothing special.

If you are in the area, this is the place to eat. Use GPS or get good directions because it is easy to miss. The food was reasonably priced and very delicious.

The food was very good, pricing was very reasonable, service was adequate, ambience was not so great or would have been a 5 star rating. The restaurant is downstairs from the street level sidewalk. There are only 10 tables and not much décor. More likely...More

Thanks for coming in! Your review is very kind. Sorry we don't have a more accessible location. Apologies.

Not the best Chinese by any means, but the chicken and vegetable special was satisfying and the serving was large. Nothing to go out of your way for.
