Authentic Chinese in DC area?

Where can I find a place that serves authentic Chinese fare?
Just as well if possible: where do the local Chinese go out to eat.

I have a group of friends heading to China in a few months that want to gather with other friends & family for an authentic Chinese meal.

Most have only had the standard American Chinese fare: chung King, fried rice, shrimp what ever, kung Pow this or that MSG laden Chinese chow. So the more authentic the better.

I have been to Full Kee on H street and think that is good. Any place else I should investigate?

As a maybe different chow theam, is Dim Sum going to be a different journey?
Meaning could you also include an authentic Dim Sum place.
Or just a very good one in the area.
