Portions and prices reasonable. Food typical Cantonese style -NOT spicy-and generally tasty but nothing that special.. We had the spicy dumplings which were special. Music from a local band on a Friday night was fine quality (with a little room for dancing). Proximate parking easily available in shopping center.

You know their food is freshly cooked with how the food tastes. Good variety to choose from in their Dim Sum menu. We had Sizzling Salmon, Duck webbed feet, Spicy Chicken, mango mousse. Impressed that the waitress can speak english, cantonese and mandarin and also the menu has been translated. This is tucked in Wheaton Mall and glad we found... More

This visit to Hollywood East Cafe was a most pleasant experience. The greeting was warm and cordial and the menu was quite sufficient for my palate. I really enjoyed the Egg Drop soup which could not have been tastier but I could not say enough to express my enjoyment of one of my favorite dishes: Moo Goo Gai Pan. It... More

What's more fun than picking your food off of a cart right at your table? This is my favorite way to eat Dim Sum! And it's delicious. I could eat their pork buns for days!!!!

We had an early dinner here last weekend and I was very disappointed by the food. I had a chicken on the stick appetizer and it was very poor cut of chicken and very dry. I had a Hong Kong shrimp dumpling and noodle soup. The serving was small for a main course. The broth was not particularly flavorful and... More

This place would be average in a city with great Chinese food, but DC doesn't have great Chinese restaurants. The best items on the menu are their XO sauce dumplings or shrimp. The hot & sour soup is fine. The typical American style Chinese food is just that. Typical. Service is good.

Had Hot and Sour soup, and the fried shrimp wontons. I had never had fried shrimp wontons before and they were excellent as was the soup. My steak with green peppers and onions didn't seem to have much flavoring My wife's cashew chick was the same. Large portions though for the money.

We've been patrons of Hollywood East for years. Many years. We became regulars when they opened their second location, at that time, on University Boulevard in Wheaton, between Georgia Avenue and Veirs Mill Road. It was called Hollywood East on the Boulevard, had limited parking, but was excellent. Eventually they relocated to Wheaton Plaza (aka Westfield Wheaton Mall) where there's... More

We've eaten here before, and it's always been good. We are Dim Sum aficionados, and this is very good. We had the sticky rice in the leaf, steamed pork buns, baked pork buns, beef in rice noodles and shrimp in rice noodles, plus sesame balls and baked pineapple buns for dessert. We took many home, since I've had weight loss... More
