We have been going to Lee How Fook for years. Every meal has been a delight. And the sauces clealy are freshly made. Clams with Back Bean sauce is a staple. Highly recommend the Hot and Sour Soup. The Chinese Greens are fresh. For the brave, Duck Feet is worth a try. Centrally located, you might want to try the bakery for desert right down the street on the corner of 11th and Race

Friends who live in Philadelphia took us here because they know we like Chinese food. We came back on our own because we had such a good meal the first time. It's a BYOB place, so if you want to have beer or wine with your meal you need to bring it. The Sea Bass was delicious as was the hot and sour soup. Lots of great menu choices and a nice ambience (but if you like quiet, go early).

We were visiting Philly and looked up some restaurants to try while there.
Thanks to other good reviews, we can add another one.
The food was really excellent.
Good-sized portions. Good slection and all delicious.

The place is on the small side. Has no atmosphere to speak of.
But as many folks know, these are often the type of places for the best food.

And despite being very busy, the service is good!

We found this little Chinese restaurant online with good reviews and went searching for it. There are so many little places in the Chinatown section. It was crowded, we didn't have a reservation, luckily they sat us in a back room and we had a good, inexpensive meal. The back room was nicer than the front - roomier.

It was a go to place for salt baked foods but a change of owner/chef left it undistinguished
