Came here after watching a movie at a nearby theatre. The place was semi-packed for a Friday evening. The menu was diverse - plenty of asian cuisine options. Our table of 5 ordered dumplings to start followed by entrees of sesame chicken, shrimp and chicken pad Thai, Mongolian beef, beef and broccoli and chicken lo mein, We shared all of the entrees (ie family style) so that we could sample a little of each. The sesame chicken was the runaway favorite as was the chicken lo mein. Everything tasted good - no surprises. Service was very friendly and attentive.

If you take this place for what it is, you may have a good meal. I was expecting better food and just didn't enjoy my meal and probably won't return.
This is a different type of chinese place and not your typical neighborhood chinese carryout. Its different. I don't have a lot of good things to say because it was expensive for what I got, with small portions and not something I enjoyed.
Ordered from there because they have a strong gluten free menu and one member of our party has gluten allergies. Its the only reason I can see going back or ordering from there in the future.
Take this place for what it is and go in knowing that it may not be perfect, but its quick and you have options there.

I substituted cauliflower rice for rice. The difference in the dish was minimal, but I felt great about reducing carbs and adding vegetables to my meal.

Whenever we are in Reston, this is another of those "got to go to" places. The food here is very good, the menu has depth, and they have a good beer & wine list.

The Service staff are prompt and friendly.

Portion size is pretty good, in fact, I would suggest that if you are not truly hungry, maybe you should eat elsewhere !
