The best food & staff ~ been going here 10 years and will never go elsewhere. They have a downstairs room you can reserve for 10-30 ppl, and get served family style for a very reasonable $/pp. Byob for the room as well! LOVE Harmony's!! ps ~ I've tricked very picky meat eaters, the food is delicious!!

An extensive vegan/vegetarian food menu and all dishes were very tasty, and I knew it was healthy for me too. It is very good food for those on a budget or for those who just want to try many different types of dishes.

I'm with Debbie on this one - there have been times I've been to New Harmony and it's been amazing, especially the Dim Sum. But other times, it's been bland or boring. Stay away from the "Hawaiian chicken." It's not the cleanest place in the world, but for an all-vegetarian restaurant, the selection is pretty varied.

New Harmony is one of my favorite vegetarian Chinese restaurants in Philadelphia's Chinatown. The menu is filled with all of your Chinese food favorites but substituted with fake meats of course. Every time I go there, I try something new and I'm never disappointed.

The food was outstanding. Most vegan restaurants have a sampling of food...not much to choose from whether its good or not, but New Hamony had a multiple listing of pages in their menu! So much to choose from and everything I had was AWESOME!
The spring rolls were fresh. I tried the spinach and scallion pancakes, which came with multiple sauces to dip. Sean's Gen Tso's chicken was great and I had duck! We could not stop there and went for the raspberry cheesecake....wow. On Sunday they also have an all you can eat buffet starting at 6pm ($12).
They are my new Best Restaurant!!!!!

Pros: Plenty of Food, Low on Cost!

Cons: The only drawback is finding a place to park

Since Ming sold KINGDOM, he focused on NEW harmony and he made it the best it has ever been!!! I was served these white , hot, and soothing napkins to wipe our hands with . The food was the absolute best , and everything was very nice , formal, and orderly. The employees have uniforms which look very nice. They asked me questions with manners. The food was just UNBELIEVABLE.

New Harmony vegetarian restaurant is a wonderful establishment located in Chinatown. The menu is just as extensive as any chinese restaurant but it is entirely vegetarian friendly. The faux meat is delicious and the scallion pancakes are definitely worth trying. They have excellent service and a moddy interior. Grade: A+

i've eaten at countless vegetarian/vegan restaurants across the country, and this is EASILY my favorite. the food is amazing, plentiful, and well-priced. the staff is courteous, helpful, and friendly. they offer "special dinners" - which include an entree, soup, and spring roll for only $12 - an offer which can't be beat.

they have such a wide variety of appetizers, soups, and entrees that it would take years to try everything. they also have a good amount of desserts and a wide array of drinks... including absolutely delicious smoothies that are perfect for these hot summer days and the best iced tea i've ever tasted.

for first timers, i strongly recommend the special dinner with either the walnut jumbo shrimp or phoenix chicken and hot & sour soup. if you aren't immediately hooked, you're a cyborg sent from the future to search for sarah connor.

New Harmony Vegetarian looks nondescript, with its spray-painted overhang that reads, "New Harmony Vege", but once you walk inside it immediately sets itself apart from the myriad mediocre restaurants that litter Chinatown's streets. Some would (and have) called it ?too dark"; I call it great atmosphere. It's a dimly lit, intimate setting perfect for either a quick lunch or long dinner. For the vegetarian or vegan, this restaurant is a haven of infinite possibilities. Everything on the menu is kosher vegan, so there is no need to ask whether or not there are any animal products in any of the dishes. Everything I have tried has been excellent, brought out hot within ten minutes. The food is very well priced; a typical lunch special includes more food than could possibly be eaten in one sitting and averages five to ten dollars. The flavors are balanced subtly and beautifully. I highly recommend the Jumbo Shrimp with Walnuts (and I don't even eat the walnuts!), lychee duck with pineapple, beef bun (for $1, even if you don't enjoy the controversial potato bread-like bun, it's worth ordering), hot and sour soup and the Choco-Ban shake. If you're not adventurous, try the General Tso's chicken- an old standby prepared and presented beautifully in a cabbage leaf. Many items on the menu come with spring rolls, rice and a small dessert at the end of the meal. I can't say enough about this restaurant: in a primarily omnivorous world, most vegetarians are happy being able to find something, anything to eat. This food is so many steps above simple sustenance that it will be very much appreciated.

All you eat dim sum is awesome because it is the best platter. I had a party of 15 people in this restaurant and as a result I had one free New Harmony T-shirt.

My 7 year old daughter is a committed ethical vegetarian and we as a family keep kosher. So this restaurant is perfect for us, since all of us can eat here, and we all love Chinese food!

If you are a meat eater you will not even miss the fact that its faux meat! I actually prefer this to real meat, and I'm not a complete vegetarian.

We love their lunch menu, which is available every day, not just weekdays.

Our family wants to hold a fundraiser for pandas conservation for PANDAS INTERNATIONAL, and we are hoping to have it here!

Harmony used to be my favorite vegetarian restaurant in Chinatown. I've been going there for years. But for some reason I still can't fathom, the day I brought my family there, the food sucked. And even though I've gone back a number of times since, the food was never the same. Some days it's the greatest food you've ever tasted, other days everything tastes a bit off. When they're good, they're absolutely amazing & unrivalled by anyone (& they have lots of competition), but when they're bad, they're really bad. I just don't get it. I still go back, but I'm not really sure why. Maybe it's because I keep hoping things will go back to the way they were. But will they?

PROS: they used to be better than everyone
CONS: the food is very uneven, sometimes astonishing, sometimes terrible

We went with a large group and had "banquet", which gave us two of everything (dumplings, appetizers, soups, entrees, etc) to try. It was great, and wound up costing us less than 20 bucks per person. Even the suspicious non-vegies thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't think some of them even knew. Dumplings and "orange Beef" were particular hits. It's also certified Kosher.

I highly recommend this restaurant! As has been mentioned in other descriptions, ambience is not the reason to go here - the fantastic food is. As a vegetarian, I am happy to find a place that can impressively reproduce my old favorites without the meat (try the General Tzo's "chicken"). The spring rolls and sticky rice dumplings are also wonderful. Every meat-eating relative and friend I have ever brought here has been impressed by the food. This is an intimate, consistently good restaurant whose prices are quite reasonable (a typical bill including tip costs $20/person). This restaurant does not serve desserts but after all of the food you will want to try you won't have room for dessert anyway. Try this restaurant, you won't regret it! (A note to people who do not eat dairy - I believe this restaurant is vegan.)
