I am impressed with the 2 dishes I ordered. The duck skin was crunchy and the meat soft and succulent. The century egg and shredded meat congree was very flavorful and full of meat, and not salty too.

Wonderful Peking Duck in any of three ways: full or half duck, duck baos (2) or duck roll. Also had Tropical spicy shrimp. Everything excellent, prices reasonable

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!
