We had a horrible experience, the food was terrible, the dumplings were so thick and nasty...service as expected in a bad Chinese restaurant. We were so mad that decided to leave a 10% tip and this caused our waitress to come back to our table complaining and insisting we leave a 15% tip, I could swear that they were insulting... More

We enjoyed this place with our two children (7 and 3). They made children's chopsticks for them and were very sweet with them. The food was good, the place was clean. They brought fresh orange slices with the fortune cookies at the end, which was an unexpected and delicious treat. If you're going to Chinatown, this is a good choice.

Came into Chinatown hoping to find some good Chinese food. Being from a small town, the only Chinese available is buffet style and usually somewhat questionable. Food was definitely of a better quality. The staff were very friendly and seated us quickly. The hot tea served at the beginning of the meal was a great touch due to the cold... More

The menu is substantial, the service was fast, and the food was delicious. I had the Kung Pao with a cup is hot and sour soup. I hope to try some other dishes on future visits.

The restaurant had a strange entrance where you could choose three doors to enter however after this all things were positive. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was hot, very tasty and plentiful. A very pleasant meal.

We went to this restaurant and had a .wonderful delicious Chinese dinner. We asked to have a traditional Chinese Dish made and they accommodated. The waitress Hong was very friendly and helpful. We had to go back again before we left town. This was the best Chinese dinner I have had in a very long time. Highly recommend this place... More

You can't go wrong with the Garden. It is clean and very authenic. The dim sum and fried rice are extraordinary. Our dinner here made our trip to Chinatown in Washington a hit.

The cocktails are ridiculous. So are the foods. Do yourself a favor and come to this place. Loved the whole experience.
