After visiting Hershey's Chocolate World, we were in the mood for some Chinese. This restaurant was about 5 minutes away and is located on a residential side street, so parking is limited. The place was empty when we got there. We were seated and waited on immediately. Food came out quickly and was hot and tasty. I had the sweet... More

I've been going here for years. Don't let the obscure location and Italian name mislead you. The food is fresh, crisp and made with savory sauces that are well matched to the offerings. Steamed dumplings are especially good. Very reasonably priced, the place has not been known for its interior and has survived as a take out but it has... More

This is a good chinese take out after your long walk at Hershey Park and you don't want to dine-out. Not good for dining, place is small and outdated. Food is good. My kids like noodles but we should have asked if their chowmein has noodles. We had a wrong order. Their chowmein is all veggies and meat no noodles.... More

Consisten quality and taste over decades at this old Hershey restaurant. Likely the first Chinese restaurant in the area. Little hard to find.

This is a must try Chinese place. I only found out about it by word of mouth. They really need to advertise. Inside it looks like a hole in the wall. They make out best by take out. This restaurant is in the middle of a residential neighborhood. I am giving this a 5 rating on the food itself, not... More

We were staying at Hershey lodge and wanted Chinese. We got it to go. They provided utensils and plates. The wonton soup is delicious - beef and broccoli is a good choice too. Not a sole inside - but we picked up with 20 minutes until closing. Kids were not fond of it. It's in the middle of the block... More

Marco Polo is a quirky little Chinese restaurant tucked away on a back street of Hershey. When they are "on", the food is the best you will have. The few times it was not, it was still good.

On a dumpy side street, it looked kind of run down when we pulled up to it, but it had been recommended by a friend, so we parked and went in. I didn't want to stay, but my husband didn't want to disappoint his friend by telling him that we didn't try the food, so we stayed. The whole place... More

Appearances can be deceiving. This restaurant looks run-down but don't let that put you off. The food is really good. We got three dinner items for takeout while visiting Hershey. They were all excellent. I would recommend it.

The sizzling platters are good, but some of the dishes are not what you expect, even if the dish is one you order elsewhere--disappointed in what they term Szechuan. We've eaten here for years, but it's become too seedy to do anything but takeout.
