I happened to walk in at a time when there were open seats. Having heard the place is very busy, and wanting to get back out to walk Chinatown without delay, I ordered quickly. Simply asked the waitress "what is the best soup today?" She told me the sliced beef and the beef brisket. I asked which she preferred, she... More

If you are looking to fill up with delicious noodle soup on a small budget, this is your place. Everything is well made, and very flavorful. The decor and ambience is nothing to write home about, it's all about the food.

I was in Philly for a conference and had such good for here that my colleagues and I ate here twice in four days! This is a small, very busy restaurant with quick service and delicious food. I recommend a side dish of freshly sauteed spinach with garlic... the portion size is enough for 4 people easily and the cost... More

On my first night in Philly I was looking for a place closed to my hotel where I could eat before crashing in bed after a transatlantic trip. I looked at TripAdvisor and saw this place had good reviews, so I went straight to it. I was not disappointed. The place does not look much: the furniture and the lighting... More

Even though I enjoyed the noodles, I didn't care for their soup broth. However, I will be sure to try one of their hot dishes next time instead. For more pictures and commentary, check out www.gustatori.com.

I have to admit, the food was delicious. I was also hungry and anything might have taste delicious but I might have got the best noodle soup in Philadelphia. However the staff attitude was poor. I told the waitress from the beginning that I am allergic to cilantro and they should not put that in my soup. She came with... More

Stopped by for a late dinner just before closing and was happy that the staff was very accommodating. We were the last of about six customers remaining and our food was served surprisingly quick. We also had the steamed curry dumplings that were flavorful and done right. Nan Zhou is definitely a noodle house worth visiting while in Philadelphia.
