We had fried dumplings, roast duck, stir-fried watercress, and a mixed seafood-vegetable dish. There was far too much for two people! Everything was very good, apart from the dumplings, which were so huge that they were impossible to pick up with chopsticks.

Sang Kee Peking Duck House has been serving traditional Chinese food in Philadelphia since 1980. We were the first to bring peking duck to Philadelphia and continue to cook the noodle soups, stir fry dishes, seafood, and vegetarian dishes that have made us a local favorite!
