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!

Good values. Tasty food what else could you want. Friendly attentive help. Can't decide what to eat? They are happy to suggest food to pique your senses

Lacking any ambiance, if you go to a Chinese restraunt for it's food, this is the place. Beginning with their complementary tea, we ordered the crispy seafood roll and the hot and sour soup. Their chef's specials seafood delight and dragon and Phoenix completed a marvelous dining experience. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn and it was only a... More

We have been there multiple times, our family, with friends and parties of 30-40 people from swim team... This is an awesome Chinese/Cantonese restaurant with old style and traditional Cantonese food. Their drinks(beer, wine) and cocktails are well under priced and best valued. Their Chinese banquet style food is outstanding with lots of seafood option, lobster, Peking duck, etc. We... More

The food was delicious! Became a fan of the Pekin Duck! Server actually showed me how to eat it the "chinese" way! Great experience. Bathroom was dirty but the food was great.

Jade Harbor was sort of picked at random by us, it was getting later, the choices of restaurants getting shorter. This had a good vibe feeling about the place, filled with customers, half of the customers Asians, a good sign. The waiters are down to earth, no-nonsense, alot of customer orders, get your order in quickly mentality. We had not... More

Generous portions, reasonable prices - they're open way late (3am some days I believe) and have a smallish liquor/beer selection.
