The dining room is on the smaller side. It's functional but that's about it. It's not really suitable for a date.

Best time to visit
Yuan Fu Vegetarian is a casual table service restaurant that features Chinese food from an entirely vegetarian menu. The menu is on the larger side and has an assortment of traditional and popular Chinese dishes. The restaurant is located on Rockville Pike, a busy commercial area with a mix of higher end and blue collar shopping areas. Yuan Fu's location is more in the blue collar category, functional but inelegant.
The dining room is a basic rectangle shape with booths along the walls and tables in the middle. There is a small preparation area in the back. The furniture is adequate but the tables are covered by cheap and tacky plastic tablecloths. These tablecloths may save money relative to traditional ones, but they detract from the décor which was otherwise tasteful. Privacy between tables is limited, but the restaurant was fairly empty on a Friday evening so it was not an issue.
The hot and sour soup was served in a small portion but had an enjoyable and spicy taste. The vegetables and tofu in the dark colored soup were hearty and appetizing. Another appetizer, the steamed dumplings, were about average. They had a rubbery texture, perhaps from being under-cooked. The spinach in the middle was not especially flavorful. As for entrees, the vegetable delight dish had an assortment of fresh and crisp vegetables. It was filling and worked well as a vegetarian dish, but a side dish of rice was not provided. The moo shi vegetable dish was quite lacking, greasy and underseasoned. Also, the moo shi arrived about 10 minutes after the vegetables which was surprising given the restaurant pretty much empty. The service was a bit brusque. Questions about the food were answered but without much interest or insight. It was standard service and nothing more. Variable food quality, somewhat curt manners and a mundane setting translate into a onetime visit for Yuan Fu Vegetarian.
