So excited about a neighborhood restaurant from which we can get great kosher takeout. The favors are so good you won't miss meat. The prices are low and the service is delightfu and fast.

Su Xing was a solid choice in finding a wide variety of Chinese, vegan, kosher (IKC) selections. Any level of heat (or not) desired, soups, appetizers, prepared and served with warmth at both the food and personal levels. Service was swift and attentive; ambience cheerful, without noise or wafting aromas. This most recent time was for dinner. Previously I have... More

Came here 7 years ago and really enjoyed it. Returned on my latest visit to philly and was sadly disappointed. The dumplings used to be much better, they are ok. We enjoyed the veg mu shoo, it is still good. Spicy Szechuan tofu is ok. The menu is extensive so there are bound to be a few good things... Service... More

Am always on the lookout for good vegetarian Asian food. This one fit the bill, and lived up to it. Honestly felt like too many choices but not really complaining about that. Their Shezuan sauce is fantastic and went very well with the Lo mein I got. Is in a great location too. Vegetarian end note: great for vegetarians, full... More

One of the best vegetarian restaurants I can remember. Everything was so fresh and cooked to perfection.

I have passed this restaurant numerous times on my stroll down quaint Sansom St and decided to try it. It turned out to be a nice surprise. I had the veggie steak which was served with mushrooms, onions and gravy. In addition the lunch specials come with soup and a spring roll. My friend had mixed veggies. Naturally, we shared... More

This place is just OK. I have had the General Tso's bean curd/tofu a couple of times as well as a broccoli dish. The sauces are sort of thick and tasteless. The restaurant does not seem that clean either. It is cheap however.

I actually had to struggle to give this place even two dots, my finger hovering one for a time. But, though the service was truly terrible, the food was tolerable, so I landed on two, but barely. Six of us were there for lunch and all ordered from the modestly-priced Lunch Specials menu. I started with the hot-and-sour soup, which... More

This review is like all the rest on Trip Advisor. If you've never been here -- go! This is a vegetarian, vegan, kosher Chinese restaurant located outside of Chinatown. (If it's vegan, it meets all of the other requirement -- including kosher). The menu is huge. You can pick dished randomly and be happy. It's clean, service is friendly, you... More
