Was in town with wife and children for a Friday and Saturday jaunt to the local museums and National Mall. My son really loves Chinese, and since we were staying local to China Town it was an easy choice. After reviewing several sites for best Chinese food we settled on Eat First. I can say, definitively I'm not impressed. I was willing to forego the decorum as previously mentioned by other posters, but the food was OK at best. My bill came to 96.00 for what I can get at my local Chinese restaurant in DE for about 40.00 I would say the food was no better than the Chinese we get at our local "Americanized" Chinese location, whatever that means, as they are certainly Chinese people creating the dishes. Between the bland atmosphere and the ok food, I wouldn't go again.

Good food. Get a clay pot for a warm and tasty lunch. The atmosphere and decor are cheap and worn, however, and the cleanliness is "aspirational" at best.

Food is good and cheap, but the service was rude. Waitress told me I had "forgotten" to give her a tip before I had finished my meal.

MaPo tofu bland with flavorless thickish sauce. Mu Shi Pork also quite bland.

Recommended by out tour bus guide, service was quick, probably because it was about 4:30 and the place was empty. The food was just wonderful! and authentic!! The interior of the place needs a serious remodel.

I came here as a tourist, seeking google for reviews. Never fails; the food was really great! Service was about as much as a Texas girl can ask of a DC waiter.

took forever to just bring the menu. They didnt have enough menus even thought the restaurant was half full, we only got one for the entire table. Asked for more and the waitress acted annoyed and left ignoring our request. Walked out and no one seem to care.
