On the one occasion we forgot to check Trip Advisor, we discovered the worst meal in America. The absence of any other diners should have red flagged us. The food actually wasn't food. We later learned that a lot of DC Asian restaurants have been supplied with pig skin as a cheap substitute for chicken. My children are dry reaching... More

We came to this restaurant while visiting Capitol Hill. There was no waiting time and were seated right away. The ambiance is okay. Restroom is located in the basement and it's dark and dingy. The have Chinese food and sushi on the menu. We decided to order sushi. Everything we ordered tasted great. The servers were friendly and attentive. My... More

After meeting with our Representatives on the Hill, my husband and I decided to try Young Chow, since it was fairly close to the House offices/and our hotel. We were early so we ended up getting to experience their incredibly cheap Happy Hour prices for drinks and appetizers. We then went on to entrees and shared pork pad thai (excellent)... More

We ordered Sesame chicken, Beef and asparagus, & Pineapple rice with chicken. Standard Asian anglicized food. The pineapple chicken was a Thai style dish whose appeal grew with every bite. Sesame chicken was good and the asparagus in the Beef and asparagus entree was plentiful and mostly stems without tips.

Hotel suggested this for take-out - even another traveler seconded the suggestion. Awful. Even the edamame were bad (which is hard to do). There has to be better take out Chinese in DC!

We went to this Chinese rest with my family. The place is not really big. If you try to find really chinese taste you should go to this rest. The fried rice, crispy chicken, salmon sashimi is very good. The service is really quick and the staff is friendly too. We love it all the food in here

We had Chinese delivered to the room. It was so quick it was amazing. I've had better Chinese food but for cost and time it was great. We had the green beans Szechuan style which was great. They delivered forks and plates with the food which was very helpful. For three dishes, rice with each, and two egg rolls it... More

We continue to struggle to find a decent Chinese delivery place on Capitol Hill. We hadn't tried this place for several months, so we decided to give it another try. What a disaster! The spring rolls tasted like cardboard. The jumbo shrimp & cashew nuts should be renamed paltry shrimp & very few cashews. The lemon chicken sauce was so... More

We've ordered Young Chow delivery several times and always been pleased. We live in the mess of the southwest waterfront Wharf redevelopment and the delivery person is always pleasant and able to find our club location to drop off the food. Friends with us ordered the sushi and raved about it; we had the traditional Asian fare, garlic chicken, pineapple... More
