I will drive 20 miles out of my way...just to have the Hong Kong Wanton Noodle Soup with pork....it is that good. With so many place to go and this place has been around since 1980....no wonder.... the food is always GREAT.. The Service is GREAT. The only thing i hate is that i have to drive 20 miles in to get there . Parking is worth paying for just for the soup.

“Good Peking Duck, good prices, good restaurant”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Family of 4 went to see the Philly Flower Show and afterwards headed to this restaurant in Chinatown for late dinner. It was after 8pm, but yet, we still had to wait 15-20 minutes. The wait was worth it. We ordered the whole Peking Duck (good deal at $32), a sauteed Chinese vegetable dish (yummy) and the kids had a seafood pan fried noodle. The food came out pretty quickly, and tasted great. There was enough Peking duck skin and meat and pancakes to satisfy us. It was a great meal to end the day. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Come for the atmosphere, Get the duck.”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

The food here is fresh and the service is fast and efficient. Don't miss the Peking duck, best in Chinatown. The wonton soup is loaded with fresh veggies and wontons.

“My favorite chinese food, outside of China”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Having traveled around Asia for many years, and having taken cooking lessons in Hong Kong, I am extremely fussy about my Asian cuisine. While there are several excellent Chinese restaurants in South Jersey, Sang Kee comes closest to authentic cooking. The noodle soups and noodle dishes are superb. The basic ingredient for great soup in the stock. They have it nailed. The dumplings, hong kong style won-ton, and the noodles are as good as they get. We eat there often, not just for the food, but the prices are excellent. The staff are amazingly nice, helpful and attentive.

“Great noodle soup; and the duck tops it all”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Love coming here on cold days for a bowl of hot noodle soup. The best part here is the addition of dumplings and Peking duck. So good! The rest of the menu contains great looking items: Chinese and Vietnamese items. But I never get past ordering the duck wonton noodle soup. Every time!
