Past its prime.

The sizzling platters are good, but some of the dishes are not what you expect, even if the dish is one you order elsewhere--disappointed in what they term Szechuan. We've eaten here for years, but it's become too seedy to do anything but takeout.

The prices jump up quite a bit for dinner. The lunch combos w/soup and an egg roll are fantastic! My personal favorite is the Kung Pao Chicken with no veggies and white rice. It's spicy with peanuts, but oh so good!

At first we thought our GPS took us to the wrong place. This restaurant is in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Agree with others' comments that the menus are dirty and tattered and the interior is dated. We waited in the entry for about 5 minutes before anyone offered to seat us. I think it was the owner who... More

Food is good and prices are reasonable. Great egg rolls. Menus are very dirty - take wipes along when touching them. We always do take out so we don't have to go inside. Marco Polo in Harrisburg seems a little cleaner.

If you seek out the "hole-in-the-wall" kinda restaurant then this is the one for you. Marco Polo is located in what looks like a former home in a neighborhood right off Rt 422 in Hershey. I agree with portions of the reviews - such as the menus are overused and battered and the interior could use some updates - however... More

The food is amazing and the portions are huge! The interior is dated but clean yet the food makes up for the interior. Best Kung Po chicken! The business must do well as there are many, many take out customers. We visit Hershey every year and this is one place we eat at every time! If you love chinese, you... More

This used to be a fairly good Chinese restaurant, no more. The interior is run down and dirty. The menus are scattered on a table and they're filthy! I didn't want to touch them. Service was terrible as the only waitress was too busy eating -- she rarely checked on us. Food was very average and nothing is worth mentioning... More

We love this place. Little mom and pop place, not fancy at all. Do you want pretty place or great food? This place has GREAT FOOD! We eat here every time we are in area. Love the food. Try it for yourself.

We went to try this restaurant after reading some online reviews. (Am dying for chinese food after a week of pizzas and burgers) I must say that we were taken a back when we first entered as the restaurant was old, with torn menu and played chinese 70s songs. But the food was amazing, the chow fun and mein was... More
