I have been ordering take-out delivery from them for over 5 years & have always paid with a major credit card. Today, when I said I wanted to use credit, they responded "don't you have cash." I sarcastically retorted, do you have cash? The next...More

I especially enjoy the combination platters. I love the take away enjoyment of sitting and eating in the nearby park

A quiet restaurant located on locust street. At first glance it does not look very enticing. I went in as I wanted some Chinese food and ordered the general Jin special chicken dish. Essentially sweet chilly chicken and vegetables. Was good. Cost only $10 and...More

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...More

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,...More
