Hubby wanted brunch and picked Continental. It was a first time visit for both of us. We split the calamari salad (HUGE), and soooo delish! I opted for the salmon hash on my main. Equally tasty. Washed it all down with a solid bellini. Definitely will go to Continental again!

Our best meal in Philadelphia. If offers unique Asian based dishes that are sensational and very reasonable priced. The Rad Na was outstanding. We also had crispy Brussel sprouts which were surprisingly tasty as I don't normally like Brussel sprouts. Then there's the Cheesesteak Eggroll (Philadelphia , Asian style). It was scrumptious. Wish we could've stayed longer to taste the... More

great spot to have a cocktail and start off the evening- it was a hot afternoon so we stayed inside but stye have a great roof top bar with lots of seating. the inside circular bar doesn't have a bad seat. lots of couches and comfy seating groups inside as well.

Had lunch with my family during a bus tour (4 adults, 4 kids). We ordered the hummus, chicken satay skewers, burger, 2 salads and edamame. Our waiter was good, we lost him a few times waiting on drinks but other than that he was good. The food though was awesome, especially the crispy calamari salad. The dressing was delicious and...

This was a lovely find. Looking for some place close to the hotel and affordable in the Penn Landings area the wife and I had walked passed it several times going to other recommended spots. We saw the Zagat badge on the door and said we already know what that means so let's give it a go. Best choice we... More

We went as guests for a birthday celebration. There was an open bar, buffet, passed hors d'oeuvres. Most of the offerings appear on their regular menu. Food was notable and featured lovely salads, tuna with pita, potato latkes, and those fabulous Vietnamese spring rolls which should not be missed. Good eats!

The food here is amazing!!! I've been to both Philly locations and they never disappoint. Service is on point. If you are in Philly and want a great meal you must visit.

There was an excellent vibe about our visit to this place. The decor itself was amazing, with some cool swinging chairs on the upper level. On arrival our service was excellent, from our waiter Tim. He talked us through the menu and helped with recommendations etc. We opted to share a few smaller entrees, having Bao Buns, Shrimp Tacos and... More

It was near to my hotel and the reviews were great. We ordered so much food and I was concerned that we weren't going to finish it. Lo and behold we did. I was in love with the Shoestring Fries and the Cheesesteak Egg Roll. I liked the Korean style fried chicken but the pieces were huge so the seasoning... More
