Best Chinese Food EVER – I love this place. The staff is so friendly and accomodating. Anything on the menu can be made into a vegetarian entree. It's cheap and the delivery and pick up are both fast. By far the best Chinese food in Philadelphia.
Bring your own to this cozy South Street spot for both meatless (and meaty) Chinese fare. – In Short
Everyone receives two menus, a yellow (meat) and a light blue (vegetarian). Both offer classic Chinese fare: moo shu chicken, sweet and sour pork, fried rice, pu pu platter. No special diet Try both, but don't miss for the meatless renditions of happy family, seaweed and bean curd, hot and sour soup. Those sharing can order the seven stars and a moon, featuring seven candied cherry-half stars and a mouth-watering breaded vegetarian ham moon topping.

I love this place! – This is always my first choice when I'm eating on South Street. It's small and cozy, the service is excellent, the food is amazing and the prices are great. I really appreciate the dual vegetarian/meat menu because I can always talk my non-vegetarian friends into eating there. Try the vegetarian Sesame Chicken! Yum.
My Fav Vegetarian Chinese Restaurant In The U.S. – I love this place! The service is top-notch excellent, and the food is amazing. I highly recommend this place to any vegetarian. I especially enjoy the way the water is served ice cold (you'll see). Sam is awesome and he even remembered me after a year away! The place is small, so large groups should plan to dine around peak hours. However, the small setting is intimate and the service is extremely pleasant. They have an extensive vegetarian menu, and the sweet & sour "lobster" is to die for.
Golden Empress Garden is affordable, delicious, and nutritious. Three thumbs up!
Outstanding food and service – This is one of the best, if not the best Chinese restaurant in Philadelphia. Great food and service.
yummy chinese vegetarian food – Right off of the popular South Street shopping section of town, this very friendly restaurant is a 'faux meat' vegetarian's dream. I was very pleased with my old favorite sweet and sour "chicken," my meat eating friend liked his wonton soup (which there is also a veggie version). Prices were average, which is a treat in a big city, and the waiter Sam was well known by the regulars. Remember this restaurant if you're hungry while shopping on South street!
