Reviewed May 27, 2013

Had a very cheap takeout late one night after a conference. Great mix of home style Chinese and Japanese standards (sushi and teriyaki etc). Freshly prepared, tasty, good size portions and not loaded with MSG. Heaving with local residents and workers getting takeout, which had to be a good sign

Very close to Alexander Inn, which is where I was staying. The two establishments should link up to make life easier for guests

The free cold sesame noodles were delicious!

Although there are a few tables, the phone is always ringing at Jin (gold in Chinese) House, open each night until 11. Primarily a busy no-nonsense take-out corner that lives up to its name, Jin caters to the entire neighborhood - from MDs at nearby Jefferson Hospital, to passing taxi drivers, local party girls & young families.

Offering everything from Lo Mein, Chow Mein & Egg Foo Young - w/ either beef, chicken, pork & lamb - to sushi & teriyaki & plenty of choices for vegans, the seven-page menu is extraordinarily extensive & orders seem to appear in just minutes.

3-course luncheon specials are reasonable & the staff unfailingly friendly. For a party try a bag or two of fortune cookies, a great buy at 10 for $1.

Having studied in Philadelphia a couple of years ago and now on holiday, I decided to go back to the place where I frequently picked up my lunch from. I was glad to notice nothing had changed much. It is a pretty simple Chinese restaurant, inexpensive, delicious food, large portions and very friendly staff. Don’t expect a fancy place, but for the price, you can’t get disappointed!
