        No BYO allowed in Montgomery County.

      I've posted that the food was delicous, but the restaurant is truly SO loud. Not just for me and my guest, but even the waitress had to lean across our table to just try and talk to us. She tried to explain that they wanted to be a "hip" place and that "Chinese people like the noise". A "hip" bar isn't the same as a great little restaurant in Rockville.

        the food is great
        it is loud but who cares
        no booze
        been there twice and everything we have ordered has been special but my fav so far has been the shrimp and black mushroom dumplings in both the broth as well as in the spicey sauce. could eat that for 3 meals a day!

          I care if it's loud. Lots of people care if it's loud. It's great that you don't care, but a lot of us do.

            Then don't go. One less person in line which last weekend had at least 20 people standing outside.

          The braised pig skin does sound interesting.

              I had the same impulse when I read "braised pig skin"

                I'll be in the area at the end of the month. Let me know when you pick a date (my email is in my profile.)
