"Inconsistency" especially regarding the hosting and waiters. All was pretty rude and inattentive from start to finish. Some food came very quickly (too quickly) and some took over 30min. Everything is good, slightly above average chinatown meal but nothing is particularly special.

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!
