Tony Cheng's: "Dim Sum or Seafood" Tony Cheng's Tip by mattreider

Tony Cheng's, Washington D.C.: 6 reviews and 2 photos

Tony Cheng's is pretty famous. So much so that often, business people from Colorado or points west will ask where it is because they've heard of it. While we go to Rockville for fine Chinese cooking, it seems that out-of-towners want to go to Chinatown.

While Chinatown has experienced a rebirth of sorts since the MCI Center was built, it has raised leasing rates high enough to get rid of many Chinese-owned and operated businesses. Tony Cheng's seafood and Dim Sum are famous enough to keep it in business.

Dim Sum is served daily, and it is packed on weekends due to the wider selection and convenient location.

Note that downstairs is Tony Cheng's Mongolian Grill, a sort of trendy restaurant that is good but not spectacular. Upstairs is the original seafood restaurant.

While in Chinatown, take a photo with the huge Chinatown gate. Everybody does.

Favorite Dish: Dim Sum. It's good.
