We're in town for a weekend, and we're not sure which meals we'd like to plan at this place. Tremendous variety, great value. In addition to food booths, there are also enough craft-type options to keep anyone stimulated and happy.

We love stopping by for lunch and then browsing around and shopping for various food items. It is always busy and there are so many fun places to sit down for a quick lunch. If you park in the lot across the street and take your parking ticket in, they will stamp where you eat or shop and you only... More

I ate in the Reading Terminal Market while attended a convention in Philadelphia. Of course the obligatory Philly CheeseSteak sandwich at one lunch. And returned to sample the "TrainWreck" sandwich at the Cajun restaurant. The best were the desserts at the Dutch Kitchen Diner. Incredilbe.

Reading terminal market, are you a foodie haven or a tourist trap? I think that you are a foodie haven that moonlights as a tourist trap. The tourists own this place, along with convention goers and business type people. My favorite place here is DiNics roast pork. There are several other places that I have bookmarked (Beck's, Termini Bros, Flying... More

If you want to go to a fancy sit-down place, this isn't it. But, if you want awesome eating options (anything and everything from Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean, Amish) at an affordable price, this is it. A heads up - there are barely any places to sit and it is pretty crowded during the weekends. Make sure you plan accordingly.

we like indian food, but food here is not fresh, overcooked, tasteless, expensive consider what they offer. we never waste food but this one we had hard time finishing it. think they should not be in reading terminal to ruin the experience of people who go there for good local food. what a shame.
