This restaurant is just outside the Cleveland Park Metro Station. You can enjoy good food and good service. My cucumber salad had my four favorite ingredients--cucumbers, onions, peppers, and olives. I enjoyed the homemade pulled noodles with lamb.

The food was so delicious and the wait staff very kind. Everyone enjoyed their food (including our 9 and 12 year olds). We were there on Christmas night and it was very very busy. They were really overwhelmed with a full house and a lot of take out orders, but recognized that and were very apologetic about the wait and gave us several free dishes and another round of drinks because of it. It was obvious everyone working there was working very hard to keep up with everything.

We definitely will be back.

Great dinner experience. So convenient, at Cleveland Park Metro.
We went early so it was quiet.
Great, friendly service. We loved the food. A great way to experience Uighur culture!
We will go back for the amazing Chicken stew.
Kind of like fusion of Asian noodles with A hearty Tika Massala. Highly recommend it!

Service wasn’t that great…had to get servers attention to just greet us.

The appetizers were better than entree…my entree tasted like food court chow mein, although plate was steaming it didn’t seem fresh but more so reheated. Def try the calamari and samsa!

Good fare at a reasonable price when you’re looking for something not too fancy. Food tends to be on the spicy end, so take that into account when you order and be sure to specify how much spice you want.

The food was delicious and unique. We had the Korma Chop and the Dry Fried Chicken. Both had great flavor and the noodles were excellent.

The only negative was a local man screaming outside the metro station for the entire meal...oh well, that's the city for you! Servers were overwhelmed but working hard and very pleasant.

Give it a try, it's well worth a visit.

We were basically put at a table and forgotten about until one order arrived but no silverware. Then we had to flag someone down for water. Then the second meal arrived 10 minutes after the first. Never saw the waitress again. Had to flag down someone for the check. And the lamb was greasy. We will never go there again.

The owner—or someone related to the restaurant—paced around without a mask next to my table for a while. This was quite annoying.

The food was quite greasy. I did like the meat bun.

My waiter was very good, very attentive.

The menu is quite extensive and difficult to decide among many good looking dishes. We chose to ask the server for favorites and we were not disappointed. One dish was too much for one serving, but made very good lunch the next day. I certainly will go back. Very good experience.

Great food, limited wine selection, no potatoes in my stew, bread was kind of stale, wasn’t offered desserts.

Hearty meal I was able to take home, very glad I tried Dolan, better than Uyghur restaurant in Crystal city.

Be sure to take advantage of the wine prices!

I thought the food was fabulous! Have never tried Uyghur cuisine, and I thought the menu had lots of options that looked tasty. The service was a bit slow, but the food came hot (I guess it takes a while to prepare). I would definitely get the specialty tea - very delicious!! The chewy handmade noodles and the vegetarian dumplings were also very good. My mother is intolerant to red bell peppers, and it just so happened there were red bell peppers in anything - so if this is you, make sure you tell them before hand!

The restaurant is small and intimate. But once we sat down, the waiter never came to offer water and to take drink orders until we called him over. The food was very good, but the waiter never made any attempt to explain the menu items--this is a cuisine with which most patrons are unfamiliar. We didn't really feel welcome, and throughout the meal, the waiter never paid any attention to us unless we hailed him. So it is hard to say whether I would recommend the restaurant. The food has great possibilities (but needs some explanation); however, the service was awful.

DC's introduction to Uyghur cuisine continues to please all of my out-of-town guests. The food may have lost some of its heat since Dolan's early days, but is still delicious. The eggplant salad and the characteristic noodle dishes are not to be missed. We suspected that the kitchen had not made our requested meat substitution, and the manager very graciously offered us free dessert.
