fresh seafood

My favorite place in Chinatown to eat a meal.Lots of Chinese families eating their food and that is a good sign. We love their whole fish and anything with shrimp.

I'm sorry for all the people who had a bad dining experience at Jade Harbor! Ours was an overall excellent experience! We had reservations, since we occupied 3 huge round tables on their second floor dining area! If you want to enjoy this kind of place, you don't order your typical "Westernized" Chinese dishes! We ordered nine dishes per table,... More

Service was good and prices reasonable. Restaurant was clean with linen tablecloths and napkins. The food was ok. Everything was served hot which was good. The server was attentive and helpful with my special order.

A small Chinese restaurant with reasonable prices for good food in the heart of Chinatown. Service was quick and efficient. It was noticeable that the Jade Harbor was popular with people from the Chinese community - always a good sign to me that a restaurant is well regarded.

I feel sorry for the fellow reviewer below me who had such a terrible-sounding experience. Mine couldn't have been further from the truth. Went here for a family dinner as I was from out of town (Canada) visiting relatives in Philadelphia. Had the duck, steamed fish, pork chops stir fried in veggies, plate of steamed veggies, soup to start and... More

Went to China town to get that authentic experience, got more than i expected. Their food was good but the customer service and manners really beyond disgusting. I got my food and was enjoying it except the really small cup of rice they give you so i asked for another cup, i noticed the waiter go to where the checks... More

With all the restaurants to choose from in the China town section of Philadelphia, why did we choose this place? The food was awful, the service even worse, plus the A/C was not working properly so it was tepid and sticky inside. Could not wait to get out of there...we didn't even ask for take-home boxes. Yuck!

This is a great place to go to taste real Chinese food. It may not have the trappings of a more westernized restaurant but look past the decor to the menu, chat through your order which can be tailored to your taste, order a bottle of Sake and taste the difference! Very good pricing too!

If you want real Chinese seafood then stop here. We had snails (1st for me), fried eel which was awesome, good vegetables and a giant seafood platter with mounds of lobster, crab, fish, clams, scallops and more. Delicious!
