Chinatown Garden

This traditional Chinese restaurant is my most favorite in the city. Located conveniently off the Chinatown Metro stop, this place is not flashy, yet offers great service and food for a great price. The dining area is quite large and perfect for large lunch groups, tourists groups, families, or first dates. The service is friendly and the food flies out of the kitchen, piping hot and fresh. Closest Metro is Gallery Place-Chinatown.

Expect to see the classics on the menu from fried dumplings and won ton soup, to Hunan Chickenlo mein noodles and fried rice. They cater to tourists a lot, so the food is not incredibly spicy (even though we ordered spicy, it came looking extremely red and covered in pepper, but the flavor was still good and not too spicy at all).  This is our go-to Chinese restaurant in DC and satisfies our craving every time.  One of these days we will muster up the courage to order from the "secret Chinese menu" that features more authentic Chinese fare and oddities like sea cucumber, various seafood, and other animal parts.
