Small authentic Chinese restaurant in Philly's chinatown section. Large menu without your typical "American" options like general Tso or sesame chicken. Staff is good but don't expect an "in and out" experience.

Sizzling beef is exactly that.....sizzling! The portions are huge so it's best to share. It's a local and family owned business, right in the middle of Chinatown. The mango pudding is the best mango pudding I've ever had! The staff is very friendly and hard...More
