Stopped in for lunch on a weekday. We were greeted and seated immediately. My husband ordered the congee with pork and I ordered the shrimp Szechuan style. Both dishes were abundant and very delicious. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend!

Let’s start with the “negatives”. The place looks shopworn. Booths have patched up seats, it’s small and cramped and looks like a caricature of the a 1960s Chinese restaurant. It serves no alcohol and it doesn’t look that clean........ who cares. Food is outstanding. That...More

Have been going there for decades and always appreciated the decent, authentic Chinese food and fast service. On the last visit, months ago I noticed the service had slipped. We ventured there Christmas day and was appalled. The service couldn't have been worse and the...More

We have come here several times and have ordered cooked dishes and their roast meats. The food is average but my 95 year old father likes their wonton mein with roast duck. On our last visit with my parents, the two women hostesses (related I...More

Full Key is one of our favorite Chinese restaurants in the Wheaton/Silver Spring area. We don't usually go there for lunch, but we happened to be in the area, so we dropped in. The tiny dining area was unexpectedly only about 1/4 full, so we...More
