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

We were staying at a nearby hotel, and wanted a quick bite in the area. Im glad we ran into this place and took a chance. The service was great, the staff super friendly. The food was delicious. I recommend people to check this place out.

I have been to The Continental several times. It has a fun vibe. Some good vegetarian choices, which is why I like it. Someone came over to us when he realized we had not had service after waiting awhile. Our waitress finally came but, never picked up the slack. It was not nearly as busy as it usually is, either.

My husband and I went here before taking the ferry over to the BB&T center for a concert. Parking was easy and it was a quick walk to the ferry. I always enjoy the food at this restaurant. WE had the onion soup dumplings, crab Pad Thai, and the Crispy shrim and calamari. Everything was delicious. It's a fun place... More

We went for a late dinner at about 830pm on a Wednesday night. It wasn't busy at all when we arrived. Only about 4 other tables taken in the whole restaurant. We ordered a appetizerand and a few entrees. About 10 minutes later our waitress checked on us and everything was fine. Well that would be the last time we... More
