This is my go-to restaurant in Chinatown! It has a great, budget lunch menu, but also has a robust dinner menu - including 5 course meals.

Good service and food. Backroom had a tv showing the football playoff but no noise. Right across H Street from the POD hotel and near the landmark gate. Prices not bad and serving size typically large.

This is far and away the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. Very very overpriced for inauthentic, cold, processed food. Shrimp toast was greasy, pork was tough and full of gristle, fried rice was stone cold. At $15.00 per main course dish you...More

Food was already made, it was even cold. The waitresses were not nice at all and the tip was already calculated in the first bill

My wife and I visited on 25 October 2017. Hateful. We felt pressurised into having the set lunch, arriving at 14.55. The place wasn’t busy but we were persuaded in by the TripAdvisor reviews. Don’t be fooled. This was so bad a couple of mouthfuls...More

This old workhorse of a restaurant will feed you well enough to keep body and soul together so that you can exit the place and continue what you were doing. I was with my young grandson, so we didn't try anything fancy. He proclaimed the...More

Came to this restaurant by chance, and was not disappointed. Excellent flavours, quick, efficient service. Good portion size, with extra touches of cold water, orange pieces, fortune cookies etc. One of the best Chinese meals I've had
