I've been going to Sang Kee for at least a decade and I never grow tired of ordering their duck. Actually there are a few things on their menu that I could eat over and over again, including the Three Flavor dumpling soup and the stuffed eggplant. The duck is always succulent but not too fatty and there's a nice variety between putting it in the moo shu wraps or having it with the string beans on the side. Their appetizer specials are always tasty but I wish they'd bring back the baby octopus! Their service is usually good and the prices are very reasonable. Sang Kee is so great that even surrounded by so many good Chinese restaurants, I still have trouble convincing myself to go anywhere else when I'm in the area.

I never liked going here because it was always just ok to other places I have been in Chinatown. Then I went for a huge course meal for the Chinese new year and I was very impressed. The food was great service was fast and I left super full. The Asparagus soup was so yummy. If you want Duck this is the palce to go.

I got delivery, got the wrong food- they wouldnt give me the correct food after i pleaded and pleaded for it on the phone. the owner of the restaurant deserves to be fired- he was really rude to me and i was thinking about suing this place but i figured it wasnt worth it- ALL I WANT YOU TO KNOW IS, THEIR DELIVERY SERVICE IS REALLY REALLY BAD!!!

They pick customers to give good service. I had bad experience with the takeout service, the cashier girl was rude, very unpleasant experience. Food was so so. There are better resturants in Chinatown.

Again, this is more than just replacement for Ramen for me. Their noodle soup is inexpensive and has the great broth in my opinion.

Frankly, I do not order anything but noodle soup here. Winter or summer, this is a place for noodle lovers.

I've been a patron of this restaurant for the longest time, since back when before they even had upstairs seating and when it was still a hidden gem. I consider myself a foodie and I have to say that this place has one of the best braised beef that you can find although they are very well known for their duck. I would highly recommend for anyone who is a fan of braised beef to try their braised beef noodle soup with the flat rice noodles. Their portions are very generous for the family sized dinners. For the vegetarians, I would recommend their garlic eggplant and their vegetarian dumplings (pan fried), it's a tasty treat. Overall, this places makes very tasty noodle soups and decent family size dinner meals (but there are some that aren't extremely impressive - so be sure to ask for recommendations). I currently don't live in Philadelphia but I still come here often!

Pros: Duck, braised beef, noodle soups

Cons: Does not accept credit cards (cash only)

this is the place to go for the best chinese food. i have been a loyal customer for over 7 years now and the food is still as good as it was when i first went there. they have the freshest duck i have ever eaten and i have always been greeted and seated faster here than anywhere else. menu is pretty basic in comparison to other rival restaurants, but it's the simple things that make them heads above the rest. only downfall in my mind is is it is away from the main area of chinatown, tucked in the corner off of vine. this could be a good thing or a bad thing.

We went to Sang Kee Duck House with high hopes, actually we were contemplating holding a banquet here for our rehearsal dinner. My fiancee and I were both terribly sick by the time we had walked home (about 30 minutes). The duck had tasted okay although not quite up to our standards from Beijing. We thought the other dishes were too greasy and lacked flavor. But we didn't expect to get sick like we did, ugh. I do not recommend this restaurant.

i've lived in philly for almost forty years. Back as a grad student, chinese restaurants were the only we could afford. Now (with a bit more money) I am able to eat at any restaurant. Yet, there is nothing I enjoy more than bringing a good bottle of wine and eating at Sang Kee's. The service is quick and friendly. The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is soothing.

Not much of anything especially flavors. I was in Philadelphia on business staying at The Ritz. The weather was rainy and cold. I wasn't in the mood for room service so I opted for Chinese delivery. I turned to Citysearch to choose that cuisine. This establishment had a rating of 9.4 (how it got that is news to me). I called and asked for delivery. I was told that they do not deliver (even though it was in the delivery section on Citysearch), but had a service I could call. I then called Dining Out I had a very polite operator walk me through the process. It was painless. I was told that the white rice would be a $2.00 surcharge and the delivery charge was increased $.50 due to the price of gas. I said no worries because I was looking forward to really GREAT Chinese food. My order arrived within an escort of hotel security. It was hot as well as well packaged. It lacked only ONE major component, FLAVOR!
The hot and sour soup tasted like the house fried rice that tasted just like the beef w/ eggplant. Which blended right into the pork fried dumplings. The only distinct difference was the texture of the dishes. It wasn't too salty, or spicy which would have been more acceptable. I truly hope this does not represent the quality of Chinese restaurants in Philadelphia. I am also very disappointed with the rating Citysearch has given this establishment. In my opinion it shouldn't have one above a 2. Side note the delivery charge was $5.49 (I think reasonable) and a tip of $5. The total for one entree, fried rice, soup and dumplings $51.08. I forgot the $2.00 white rice! The fortune cookies were free.

NOT ONCE, in 25 years have i ever heard the waiters complain about a tip...that's just rediculous.

We started going to the restaurant in Phila, when there was only 2 tables. Also had great food. Larger portions down there for sure.

The one in Wynnewood i still great, smaller portions, but we crave the food all the time. The dumplings and soup are the best anywhere. Always fresh food.

Foodfriend...maybe if you left a larger tip then 10% at restaurants, your waiters would be friendlier :o) Do that at all restaurants? Bet you get great service...not

I have been to Sang Kee 4 times. The food,service and atmosphere is terrible. The place is almost on par with a chinese restaurant you would find in a mall. The portions are very small, yet very expensive. If you want the best duck in Philly, go to "Siu's Duck House". For anything else go to Wong Wong. Both places off more authentic versions of your favorite foods. Wong Wong's menu is over 300 items long which is big enough for the pickest of eaters. I recomend the Beef with XO sauce, Shrimp or Pork Belly with Ginger and Scallions, Singapore Mei Fun or even the General Tso's which is better than any you will ever have. The food literally comes out in 5 minutes.

Basically, here is found the best Chinese food I've found in either NYC or Philadelphia. I've been to Sang Kee several times, and have yet to be disappointed. The unbelievably juicy Peking duck and intensely flavorful BBQ spare ribs remain on a level of taste which has remained unapproached by even the most expensive Chinese restaurants.

Yes, the place is lacking in ambience, and yes, the location is more than cumbersome to approach. However, I go to restaurants to eat, not to be serenaded by charming, doting waiters wearing tuxedos and surrounded by precious art lit by obnoxiously scented candles. I want good food, and this place consistently delivers exactly that.

The decor is very chic and modern unlike the traditonal chinese restaurant decor but that's about the highlight of the place. It has the acoustics of a gym, the t.v. screens imbedded at the eating counter and hanging off the corners of the ceiling flash CNN non-stop like an airport. The food is mediocre and if you are hoping for the generous portions chinese restaurants are known for, you will be sorely disappointed. Take the time to go to Chinatown. Worst of all is the service. If you hope to get hot tea refilled or anything more after you are served your meal...good luck! And if you tip 10% because the service was so bad, the waiters will yell loudly in front of you in chinese and return demanding you leave more tip.

I've probably been here a dozen times. They do a couple things very well--the house special dinners for 2 or 4, the duck (awesome peking duck), their roast pork, and the noodle soup. The rest of the menu is pretty mixed. If you're looking for chicken and mixed vegetables or general tso's chicken, you should probably go somewhere else as this place doesn't do them particularly differently than any corner chinese shop. If you won't order duck because "You don't know if you'd like it", this place probably isn't for you. Still, if you're in the mood for any of the Chinatown staples listed above, this place is the best place I know of to get them.

Is this place overrated? just a tad. im not saying it's the best food nor am i saying it's the worst food. duck was bland, but hey! maybe it was just that day. i dunno. i wouldn't suggest this place if someone were to ask me where to get duck in chinatown philly. so kudos for those who thinks this is best chinese food in philly (i think each places serve their specialty-i don't see anything they have here that would be a specialty)-nuff said.

the food was average. i really don't know what the rave is all about. Some of the dishes taste like the local chinese restaurant around the corner. wonton skin was falling apart and the duck wasn't even the best. i don't think it's even top 5 in PHILLY!

after reading all the reviews online about this place...one word: Overrated! The duck was even as good as ppl claimed it to be. I'll give them credit for some of the noodles dishes and their average wontons...but that's where i stopped. ick.

The best AUTHENTIC Chinese food available in Philadelphia. I know friends who come in from NYC to visit this restaurant because of the great things they've heard and the food keeps them coming back. You start to wonder how a little restaurant in the corner of Chinatown is able to attract so many customers--it's the amazing food and the low prices. SangKee's will definitely leave you feeling satisfied!

After reading the reviews on citysearch, my family and I went to the Sang Kee Peking Duck House. The food was very disappointing. I have had much better chinese cuisine in New Jersey. If you are looking for a place to get pan-fried noodles, general tso's chicken, and shrimp dumplings - DO NOT START HERE!!!

My friend and her family think that this is the best Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. I disagree. I think this restaurant is way overrated. The food is below average and bland. I am a sucker for Chinese food, and having been to hundreds of Chinese restaurants, Sang Kee ranks one of the poorest restaurants I have been to. I came here with a huge family and they were all disappointed by the food (they're Chinese foodies too). Our waiter had a personality of a traffic cone and the quickness of one too. The prices are a little bit more expensive than the prices you find at other restaurants in Chinatown. Sure, the decor is nice but it won't save you from the food. Go to Tai Lake.

The Peking duck is so outstanding I almost forget there is more to the menu. When I deviate from the holy grail of crispy delicious duck heaven and order something else, I am always satisfied. It's tough parking and sometimes there is a bit of a wait, but it is entirely 100% worth every inconvenience. Plus, duck fat, although not as good as olive oil (but close) is loaded with mono-unsaturated fats, the kind that helps good cholesterol. So it's not *that* bad for you !

The wonton soup here is good- almost as good as grandma's. The food ranges from typical Chinese American food with gluey sauces, to more interesting and traditional dishes which are pretty good. A good place for people more new to Chinese food and for groups. The service is pretty poor - the waitstaff seem to forget your existence after serving the dishes.

I usually come to this spot because the service is very fast and the food is top notch. The prices here are not outrageous. I highly suggest the Peking duck. The roast pork and duck over rice with green vegetable is also great. I only wish they put more shrimp dumplings in the noodle soup. They also need to expand to credit card users. The cash only establishment is not very convenient. Overall, the fast service, good food and reasonable prices make this restaurant tops in Chinatown.

I went to the place for the first time yesterday and was very disappointed by its service. There were couple idling servers and yet I had to wave at them couple times for one to approach you. The attitude of the waiter was arrogant and became impatient when I asked about the Peiking duck. The dishes came without small plates and we had to do our usual "wave until someone sees" thing to get the plates. We ordered two small bowl of rice and was given a large one and charged accordingly. Even Le Bec Fin wouldn't have this kind of attitude, especially when the food is average.

I ordered roasted chicken, roasted duck and roasted pork over rice. It was very good. The service was quick and prompt.

I highly recommend this place more for lunch than dinner. The atmosphere is just not good enough (aka. romantic enough) for dinner. The other con is that they do not accept credit card and I'm big on swiping plastic, it's just not convenient.

But other than that, I do recommend this restaurant.

it doesn't get any more convenient than this. this is the ultimate "get a quick bite to eat for a little bit of cash and leave" experience in chinatown. as a chinese american, this isn't your average take out american style chinese food restaurant. this is a lot more authentic. their food is quite fresh and it usually comes out within minutes from time of order. i would recommend trying their noodle soups as well as their other small platters. clams and fried squid are also pleasant.

This is with no doubt the best duckhouse I have been to. They have an excellent menu from duck noodle soup to fried sesame milk balls. Parking is directly out front with minimal charge. They have seating for 1 or 10 depending on the company you keep.
Enjoy your dinner here, I know I will!

Pros: excellent service, excellent price, great parking

Cons: tight seating

Absolutely the best. For two people or for 20 you can not have better food at a cheaper price. Try the appatizers all night long or get right to the main course. This place blows the rest out of the water

My wife and I are Chinatown regulars, and Sang Kee is a new favorite for us. We shared a giant bowl of wonton soup (good, but needed a little hit of the many condiments on our table) which came with the duck-for-two dinner, at $24.95--soup, crispy golden peking with pancakes and plum sauce, and a nice shredded duck dish with fresh fried rice. Add the (frightfully named, but excellent) "Sesame Fried Milk" appetizer, and $2.50 Heinekins, and you can have a great time on the cheap here.

This is as authentic as it gets to a Chinese duck house. With the hanging ducks, the great noodle dishes, the steamy atmosphere...there's nothing better. The servers can take forever though, depending on what time you get there. At least they don't make you feel rushed to get in and out considering the restaurant's small size.
