My husband and I went to this restaurant when the power was out the other day. No other restaurants in the McLean area were open so was very surprised to find them serving. There was no power so it's really amazing how they managed in...More

Had lunch with two friends. The price was very good (medium), the food delicious, and the service fine. We had Shanghai style steamed dumplings, crispy beef, and the combination fried noodles. Will certainly go back again.

After several visits we have been pleased with the food at a reasonable value for McLean. The menu like all Chinese restaurants is long so finding what you want is not a problem. Service can be spotty by being dishes too quickly before we've finished...More

Ok, so no this isn't gourmet Chinese food, but its fresh, the owner always remembers you and your kids - even if he hasn't seen you in 10 years. Family run, and very accommodating so I am giving it an excellent review.

Real Chinese food secret in McLean. Had 2 menus: the Chinese-American, featuring all is the standards, plus the "Chinese" menu, which is fantastic and well worth sampling. Service is very friendly. Food is fantastic.

Parking is a problem since the parking lot gets crowed and is poorly marked but it is fairly level and there are no steps since its on the ground floor.
