    The best duck outside of NY's Chinatown!. They also have another specialty - It's the garlic sprouts stir fried with choice of chicken (the best), pork and shrimp. Really like their Chef Fon's Shrimp Read more

    Don't expect lots of room to stretch out, but do expect to spot a bold names in the cozy digs. Gail Raiman said she has been ordering "the fabulous Peking duck and mai tais" for over 30 years. Read more

    Try the Szechuan beef proper, the Peking duck, the marinated celery, the Chilean sea bass and the crab wonton soup. Those are my favorites, but pretty much everything on the menu is spectacular. Read more

    The Peking duck is the specialty but is seems not to be prepared in the usual way with air blown between the meat and the skin. The result is a difference in taste and a fatty layer betwen skin and me

    Make reservations. Don't get cucumbers. Ask for green chilis in soy sauce. You can ask to take duck carcass home but it has less meat. Try duck TO GO: less stressful eating experience and more meat.

    Duck Is Perfect! get half a duck even though I always want more to save room for the salt & pepper shrimp & the mini dumplings, steamed veggies - all of it - can't go wrong, ever!!!!!

    Obviously you gotta try the duck! A professional duck slicer will come and slice the whole duck up! Apparently, many well-known people have been there. Like George W. Bush, Psy etc.

    Ask for the remaining bones, fat, and meat! The remains can be made into a broth with or without noodles, served as is, or the meat chopped up and stir fried with sauce.

    "This temple to Northern Chinese cuisine in Falls Church specializes in Peking duck. Ambiance is pure Beltway: Walls are papered with images of politicians and other famous diners."

    Duck duck duck! Young chow fried rice has tons of different animals. Green beans + minced pork. And most importantly, the soy sauce with green peppers. Do it. Now.

    We have enjoyed dining here several times. Good service and very nice home grown food. Not however top standard duck or other dishes. Nice ambiance from Bobby the owner.

    The best Chinese food in the Washington DC area. Be sure to make reservations, ask for Bobby and tell him Gerrit sent you. The duck is awesome, as are the lamb chops.
  • Ronald K.
    Ronald KounanisMarch 19, 2016
    Food is excellent, but can be expensive. The reason it is perceived as expensive is that it is family-style eating, with much larger than normal portions. Tip: make a reservation to dine in, busy.

    Duck is always a solid starter. But do not miss out on the garlic sprouts with the animal of your choice.

    The sky and chili sauce comes in a small bowl. It's called "uncle Charlie's Sauce." Also ask for the Gourmet Sauce. Both are complimentary and taste great! This is the best Chinese Rest. In the area

    Arrive early, the parking lot to this shopping center is always full so finding a parking spot will add a few minutes. Park carefully, the spots seem more narrow than normal.

    Make sure if you get the duck (and you should) that you get one of the Asians to do it. The spanish ladies don't scrape the fat off the skin

    Try the peking duck. It's amazing, especially the skin. They scrape the fat off the back of the skin leaving behind a duck skin chip that is delectable.
