I had heard good things about this restaurant, so I went with some friends for lunch. The lunch menu had the usual list of specials, all served with hot and sour soup. We had 3 different chicken dishes - and all were OK, just not great. My complaint was that the sauce was too thick (personal preference?), and that too... More

Friends and family often indulge in these delightful packages but on one occasion we all found eggshells in our fried rice. And while you can get a good dinner inexpensively the service isn't delivered with a smile and parking is at a premium.

Try Mamas dumplings, a large serving, brought steaming and fresh in a few minutes. Delicious choppedvpork and scallion filling......Both chicken and veggie spring rolls are good, too. Cheap, easy and casual, located in a strip mall near Montgomery College Rockville campus. A favorite.

If the China Bistro management understands that the waitresses need to be present and polite, this restaurant would be a gold mine. The food quality not withstanding, I was totally offended by one of the waitresses. She was commenting in Mandarin on the customers including our table and the amount of tips provided; What she did not know is that... More

Loving dumplings, we wanted to try this place for a while. Finally it happened, and boy we were disappointed. WHY?.. BECAUSE: a) counting 12 dumplings p/portion for two of us we could contain in our tummies not more then 2 orders, so we asked if we could have 2 combos with some different types of dumplings. And the answer was:... More

We were swayed by rave reviews of its Chinese dumplings to pay a visit to the China Bistro 妈妈水餃館 and we were not disappointed. No wonder the place was quite packed even though it was past one o’clock. Apparently, many of the diners patronize the eatery regularly and the impatient waitperson must think we were regulars, too, as we had... More

Order Mamas dumplings, a serving of about 10 delicate, steamy dumplings that will feed your soul as well as your stomach. Delectable and delicate flavored minced meat filling, and a pot of tea, for 10$. Veggie rolls were also excellent. A full menu, but the dumplings are the thing here!

I had the orange chicken, my date had the chicken cashew. As is usual for me, my date ALWAYS gets the better meal. The orange peel chicken was good, but the cashew chicken was nothing short of terrific. It was crispy, sweet and tangy, and hot, and matched perfectly with crunchy but properly cooked veggies. Both came with rice. We... More

If you like dumplings and this is the best in town. The dumplings are made to cook and there is a large varieties of dumplings with different fillings. The scallion pancake is also a must.
