Truly excellent Peking Duck, worth traveling for (5 stars++). Juicy shao-mai dim sum were also very good. Other dim sum (shrimp, pork, sausage) were only okay (3 stars). Wait staff were attentive and friendly.

Sang Kee Peking Duck House has been serving traditional Chinese food in Philadelphia since 1980. We were the first to bring peking duck to Philadelphia and continue to cook the noodle soups, stir fry dishes, seafood, and vegetarian dishes that have made us a local favorite!
