Went here with the family. The scallion pancakes and spring rolls were fantastic. Noodle dishes were wonderful (meat is usually served on the side which was nice). There are so many noodles we couldn't finish them all - so you may want to share the soup if possible. Overall wonderful place and very reasonable.

Our family of four attended an event at the Philadelphia Convention Center on the weekend. On the Saturday, the event ran until about 9:15 pm. We had hoped to go to the Reading Terminal Market for a nice dinner, but knew it had closed at 6 pm. We knew that Chinatown was just next door, and had only a few... More

Wow. Okay, this isn't fine dining, but there are plenty of restaurants that could learn from this place -- such as how to actually cook good food!! If you want to best experience in Chinese hand-made noodles and gyoza (dumplings), then do not go past this place.

In order to avoid a packed restaurant and a wait on a beautiful Saturday in October, our party of 3 decided on a mid-afternoon, 3:30PM, visit. We were seated right away and the service was prompt to place our order. We ordered spring rolls (very good-light and crisp) fried pork and chive dumplings (quite good) and the fried curried dumplings... More

I tried this place and I wasn't sure if I should have the noodle soup or stir fried noodles. I ended up having the noodle soup and wish I had the stir fried noodles instead. I opted for the roast pork noodle soup and specifically asked for no cilantro and shaved noodles. Unfortunately it came with the cilantro and hand... More

Philadelphia Chinatown has many restaurant. Nan Zhou Hand Drawn Noodles is one to try. The bowls of noodles are generous and the broth flavorful. I tried the beef tendon bowl and while the tendon pieces were tender and tasty, I wish the amounts were as generous as the hand drawn noodles. The noodles were delicious though. I do recommend Nan...

This place was packed. The wait was not long though. And the staff was efficient. We shared the popular brisket noodle soup. And got two of noodle dishes that would remind you of pad Thai. One seafood and one pork. Delicious! The shrimp was cooked perfectly! We shared the scallion pancake (best I have ever had but small might want... More

This place seems to be always crowded but that's a good thing. Don't have to wait very long and the food is excellent. Brisket soup was awesome. Good service. Would certainly go back again.

I am a Philly local and I love this place. The food is very in expensive and never fails to be amazing. Any time I have a friend come in from out of town I take them here because it represents the best of Chinatown. I would highly recommend the pork with soy sauce noodles and the pork and chive...

great place for noodles! it's a no frill kind of place...ok service but great food. we ordered the beef noodle soup and beef brisket noodle soup. liked the chunky brisket more than the thin sliced beef. soup base was good, noodles was good...large portion also. scallion pancake was in the small side but very tasty.
