Have been coming to this place for this years. The food is consistently excellent. Vegetables are fresh and country. Flavors are delicate. The steamed dumplings are a delight. The chicken dishes are cooked in delicious sauces. Oranges always come with the check. Oh, yeah, the fried rice rocks!!! Never had a bad meal yet. Just wish they would expand the... More

We went on our first date anniversary. Our first date in 2012 was at a Chinese restaurant in Richmond, VA, and every year since we try some place different. Last year's disaster in Chinatown left us concerned and the weather was to brisk this year we decided to not venture far from home. The place doesn't look like much really,... More

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.
