The Taiwanese food here is actually better than what I got in Taiwan. The onion pancake is very light and in many layers. The beef roll is tasty. The spicy cucumber is just the right amount of spicyness without being stingingly hot. Best of all,...More

This place is run like a boarding school for very well-behaved children. Don't fool around, or you will not get your table. No soup for you! If you are lucky enough to get your soup, or dumplings, or pastry, you will bask in the reflected...More

After hearing about A&J's for years, we finally made the trek up to Rockville - it did not disappoint! We were a little intimidated by the four page menu as we were seated and given a paper copy to mark down our desired dishes. So...More

We'd been impressed by our first visit to A&J a little while back, and we had to do some shopping nearby, so we dropped in for a second try. This time, instead of attempting to navigate the unusual and authentic menu on our own, we...More

OMG Awful !!!! I thought I was going to a Dim Sum Restaurant. As Trump says "WRONG" The worst food on Rockville Pike. The service was terrible too. Don't waste your time or money!!

A & J doesn't serve the traditional Chinese American dishes. Instead, it has traditional Chinese dishes from a number of Chinese regions. And judging from the clientele, it's pretty authentic. In any event, it's great food. Come early and try to beat the crowds.

This was a high quality restaurant!! And the food was a great price! We actually drive 1 hour to get here and we would do it again!! Everything was delicious and the service was quite good for being crowded! Highly recommended!!

If we lived nearby, A&J would be our regular Chinese restaurant. Hidden away on the lower level of a small strip on Rockville Pike, they have a small, plainly decorated dining room. For a late Saturday lunch, every table was full (about 90 percent Chinese...More

This is a great little hidden spot in Rockville that can be tricky to find the first time, but your heart will lead you back the next time. Like other reviewers have pointed out, cash only and you order by marking items on a paper...More

Bring CASH money only. No rolling carts here - just great tapa-like dim sum. How to eat here: Get seated, receive paper menu + pencil, circle orders, give to server, and wait. Very simple place with tasty comforting eats. Feels like we've been coming here...More
