China Garden (Rosslyn) Dim Sum

Recently went to Mark's for Dim SUm and loved it. DH is ready to try another place. How is China Garden?

    pretty good, great prices, but haven't been to mark's so no comparison of which is better.

      Fortune, across the way on Route 50 next to Home Depot, is better than Mark's. China Garden is ok - since they have a lot of tour buses stop by, at least the food is pretty hot and fresh. The waits for a table can be killer though.

        Fortune at 7 corners is comparable to Mark's. Definitely do not go to the Fortune in Reston. I've been meaning to try the Wheaton dim sum joints, which are supposed to be better than Mark's or Fortune. I haven't been to China Garden in years. Didn't think they were much good. Tony Cheng's in Chinatown is also pretty good if you want to venture into the city.

        Although I currently live in NoVA, I moved here from MontCo and have compared all the dim sum and Chinese restaurants in both areas. If you really want the best dim sum in our area, MontCo options are far better--Oriental East, Hollywood East, New Fortune. The NoVa options such as Mark's, Fortune, China Garden are all subpar in my opinion. They're okay if you just need to satisfy your dimsum cravings.
