This is the best Chinese takeout I have had since moving to Alexandria! Looking forward to ordering more in the future! The service and delivery driver were so friendly and helpful!

Ask for the noodles to be separate from soup...even though you order an hour ahead. I got a soupy mess even though ordering ahead of time and asked to be separate. This dish looks like congee now...

We were accidentally given pork dumplings instead of chicken. My sister loved them though.

I messed up the order time, and they were so amazing about changing the order and getting it to me asap. I'm so glad they're open again!

Perfection, the best Chinese food in the area hands down, we've been ordering from here for 6 years, that's after trying everyone else in the area and by far this is the best you can get in the area.

I love this place, it is the classic type of local Chinese restaurant. The food is always excellent, the service is quick and efficient and they serve all of the classic dishes. I highly recommend it whether you are taking out or dining in.

My meal is always a 5 from South China! Loved the sauce in the Pandan Chicken, and the Malaysian Shrimp Lo Mein was amazing as well.

My pick up was ready but servers left it sitting out even though I asked about it. Servers need to pay attention.

My grandma used to say that for Chinese food, those "little hole in the walls" are the best. This place sure lives up to it. I've been coming here and to their old location (the Mandarin Inn on Mt Vernon) for almost 40 years and never had a bad meal yet. Where else can you say that?

Food took over an hour to get to us. I was disappointed that the Moo Goo Gai Pan was mostly broccoli with almost no mushrooms. Fried rice and beef and broccoli were good.

Had the Curry Chicken on the lunch menu. Pretty good. Made it without onions per my request. Their service is top notch as usual. Their specialties are the Malaysian dishes. I highly recommend the Rendang, which is more "American style" than traditional but still, very, very good.
