When I first visited here years ago, the meals were genuinely delectable (and the menus themselves had wonderful photos of the meals, doing them justice). Now are new menus, no photos, and the meals don't deserve to be photographed. The portions are smaller, the food less tasty, and there isn't the TLC that was once put into them. I still... More

This is a fine place for an inexpensive meal that's also vegetarian. The food is tasty and served quickly. It's a great place for shoppers or anyone else who happens to be in Center City. I'll certainly come back.

Su Xing was a solid choice in finding a wide variety of Chinese, vegan, kosher (IKC) selections. Any level of heat (or not) desired, soups, appetizers, prepared and served with warmth at both the food and personal levels. Service was swift and attentive; ambience cheerful, without noise or wafting aromas. This most recent time was for dinner. Previously I have... More

Came here 7 years ago and really enjoyed it. Returned on my latest visit to philly and was sadly disappointed. The dumplings used to be much better, they are ok. We enjoyed the veg mu shoo, it is still good. Spicy Szechuan tofu is ok. The menu is extensive so there are bound to be a few good things... Service... More

Am always on the lookout for good vegetarian Asian food. This one fit the bill, and lived up to it. Honestly felt like too many choices but not really complaining about that. Their Shezuan sauce is fantastic and went very well with the Lo mein I got. Is in a great location too. Vegetarian end note: great for vegetarians, full... More

I have passed this restaurant numerous times on my stroll down quaint Sansom St and decided to try it. It turned out to be a nice surprise. I had the veggie steak which was served with mushrooms, onions and gravy. In addition the lunch specials come with soup and a spring roll. My friend had mixed veggies. Naturally, we shared... More
