Sorry but only a 3-star because the dishes are overpriced and smaller portions. It is heavily seasoned so as a migraine sufferer, you will get a migraine that very evening.

Tried out the House Special Soup and also the Peking Duck Roll. Roll size was a bit on the stingy side, but I enjoyed the soup! Would come back again specifically for the duck.

Very disappointed from this purchase. We picked this restaurant because it had good ratings. We even ordered extra duck. But when we got home, most of the duck was very bony. Total disappointment.

Truly excellent Peking Duck, worth traveling for (5 stars++). Juicy shao-mai dim sum were also very good. Other dim sum (shrimp, pork, sausage) were only okay (3 stars). Wait staff were attentive and friendly.

Sang Kee Peking Duck House has been serving traditional Chinese food in Philadelphia since 1980. We were the first to bring peking duck to Philadelphia and continue to cook the noodle soups, stir fry dishes, seafood, and vegetarian dishes that have made us a local favorite!
