  • The chicken fried rice is da bomb
  • They charge $3 for hot tea here....
  • Bland entrees, average service. Would not recommend.
  • All Chicken appetizers are good
  • Great restaurant. Great food. They make the best sweet and sour chicken.
  • You won't leave hungry or unhappy
  • The Chalin's chicken is really good. I highly recommend it.
  • You can get American Chinese or Chinese Chinese food. LADIES, YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL! Along with some really precious dumplings.
  • Ew. Greasy expensive Chinese food.
  • Good for group lunches (sharing several plates over the lazy susan), but the food was mediocre at best. They have an authentic menu and an Americanized menu. Only tried the latter, maybe that's why?!
  • Most expensive mediocre Chinese food I've had. Portions are huge. Crab wonton had virtually no crab.
  • The citrus honey shrimp is absolutely the very best!
  • They added a tip on our check for a party of 5! I'd look for a higher quality restaurant in DC.
  • The hot and sour soup is amazing
  • The BEST orange chicken ever! Staff isn't always attentive or personable but the Orange Chicken is worth it.
