Found this via Tripadvisor and the menu was great, lovely fresh food, great value and good sized portions. We ate fairly early, about 6.30 and the place was already busy so reservations may be needed if you eat later at night. Good vegetarian menu was a bonus for me

Food was delicious and the decor and lighting was terrific. Our server needed 3 round trips to the table for the order. Maybe this is because she couldn't be bothered to take notes. The good news is, we were very familiar with our order by the time it arrived

The food was good but not out standing. the Pad Thai was just average and did not have that smoky quality it should have. tried the creme brulee which was a surprise to... More

I ordered chicken satay, Thai crispy calamari, and spinach sauteed in garlic and oil. Overall, the food was terrible. The chicken satay was coated with something that was very under cooked. The spinach was floating in oil and was very tough to chew (they included all the stems instead of just the leaves). The calamari was bland even with the... More

This restaurant was nice enough to let us enjoy the Restaurant Week menu on a saturday night. While the variety in here is wide and the choices were tough, the food turned out to be average. Our salads barely had enough dressing. The black pepper tuna was so over peppered, I could barely eat it. My boyfriend's Lamb dish was... More

One of those sprung up restaurants that actually quit authentic favor and down to the real root taste places. I would recommend lunch special for its price.

Best meal of our 4-day Philly trip! The Duck Crepes were awesome, as was the Shanghai Beef. There were so many interesting things on the menu. Will definitely return if in Philly again.

We had a group of 12 and everyone was happy with the food they ordered. Located near lots of shopping and nightlife, this is a nice little restaurant featuring fusion cuisine. Spice 28 would be great for a date night or friends night. When the weather is nice, they open the front of the restaurant for an al fresco experience.... More
