This restaurant is like every other veg/an chinese restaurant I've been too. Lots of yummy, deep fried, sauce covered, a little too sweet, soy meat & veggies.
I really like that they have brown rice here, since most of the veg chinese places ive been to have white rice & if you want brown, it costs extra. Not here, which is nice.
The sweet & sour and orange chicken/eggplant/whatever is VERY sweet, but that's to be expected.
The lotus spicy is a GIANT pile of various sliced/shredded soy meats and is not spicy, but I'm addicted to the spice & have a very high bar for whats spicy ;)
The fried dumplings are super good, tho the sauce is a little hoisin/BBQ like.
The sandwiches/burgers are very chinese inspired, the orange chicken one is weird, but surprisingly good.
I've had alot of things here, I'd have to say i like the things that have breaded/fried protein in them, since they are crunchy and chewy and delicious. The sauteed soy meats are ok, but I really like the crunch of the breaded stuff.
Oh and the lunch special is the jam. Its a good way to try different things on the cheap, and its awesome to pick up if you have a flight out of Dulles and need something to eat on the plane. :)
Cons: kinda sweet, generic veg chinese
