Have eaten carry out from here on many occasions. There have been times that it has been good and unfortunately probably more times it has not. They are very inconsistent and I am looking for another go to for Chinese carry out in the area. Gui Lin has become too disappointing.

This is a real quality find in the middle of suburban Maryland. The best news is that the Grand Mart Grocery store has moved/closed and so its reasonably ok when it comes to finding a parking space. This little mall with 5 ethnic restaurants was impossible before. We had Roasted Duck, a beautiful poached Tilapia with pickled cabbage, Egg White... More

Ordered several dishes for takeout, and the taste was just not right. Particularly, the duck probably already perished. Will never go back again.

We went to the restaurant at 8pm on a Wednesday night and there was only two other groups of people in there so we were seated and could order quickly. As others have said, not all of them speak English that well so both me and my father had to point at the menu to show the waitress what we... More

We tried the restaurant one time and the dishes were good. For CNY eve, we decided to carry out. I called 6:35pm and was told that it will be ready in 15-20 mins. My husband came to pick up at 7:05, he was told the orders were not ready. The lady owner told him that she didn't even know what... More

Hey, looking for a chopsuiey house? This ain't it. Look around and notice the number of asians and you'll realize this is the real deal for cantonese cooking. Maybe slow for lunch (don't know) but great .. I mean GREAT for dinner.

I believe the food to be good. If customer service is low on your list, I encourage you to grab a bite from this restaurant. I ordered delivery one evening and was told that the driver's english wasn't good enough to punch in a code at my front door so I could buzz him into my building. The restaurant called... More

I'm absolutely shocked at the negative reviews on this site. I have discovered GuiLin restaurant two years ago and loved the place since. This is the most authentic south Chinese/Hong Kong cuisine you'll find in DMV bar-none. Granted, most of reviews' compliant about the relatively longer wait and comparatively higher prices are true, but the food is exceptional and well... More
