A great little restaurant. Every time I try something different and find a new favorite. Always enjoy a nice bowl of Wonton Soup to start. Service is always excellent as well.

Not worth the money, better and more affordable going to a mom/popp Chinese store, food not that great. Also, their main website has an online coupon to use, please see below and it was not valid, I called the store and the gentlemen said they have so many different things out there, he does not know what is valid or...

We arrived at lunch time and were promptly seated. The menu had a nice variety of choices, including lunch specials and a full menu at lunch time. The service was attentive, and they were willing to cook to order (no green onions, in my case). The food was very good. Two blocks N of Rittenhouse Square.

This place is a winner every time. Everything is delicious, I recommend the Mongolian beef with brown rice, scallops and beef, general tsos chicken, eggplant, etc. etc. You get the idea. The price includes soup. Price is super reasonable. Good for inexpensive business lunch. Service is super fast.

Not a very expensive location (10-15$ per person); generally good food, not hot, even if it says spicy. plenty of rice- white of fried. They charge a bit more for brown. Vegetarian menu available.

I almost don't want to write this because I don't want the world to converge on this place such that I cannot get a table next time I am in Philadelphia. We first heard about the restaurant because of the classic jazz combo which plays with a classy singer on Friday nights on the second floor. We thought we would... More

Always the place to go for chinese food with out going all the way down to China Town. But when we went on Friday nite there was a Jazz combo upstairs and as a guest singer they had the infamous Peggy King. Made the whole evening.

My beau and I stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner around 4PM on a Saturday and were the only table seated,although others came in for take-out. We had a nice window table,with attentive,but not annoying service. Good food,reasonably priced. Loved the fact that it's a restaurant without TV's...which gets harder and harder to find.Noticed that they were having live... More

The food was just okay. The prices are so high. Service was good. I will try another place in the area. Just to add their wonton soup is a little weird and taste funny. Their pork fried rice greasy and burnt. Thanks for reading.
