Popular with college kids and its BYOB. The service was great, the food was average. Ordered sweet & sour chicken, ribs and dumplings. All were good and would not hesitate to go back .

The food and service are excellent. Sometimes there's a little wait but well worth it. The menu is extensive and they're very happy to customize any dish to your liking. Another plus; it's very close to The University of Pennsylvania Hospital/Perelman Center. An easy walk.

For those of you with Chinese linkage ( as it happened to me personally too ), it is a perfect place when you are missing the local foods after sometimes staying within U Penn. Noddles, Soups and Dumplings were superb. Prices were reasonable too.

Background: After a meeting at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn), we were famished and didn't want to do a long walk to our usual eating establishments. Penn suggested we try Beijing which was a short walk away. Verdict: The Healthy Selection options were tasty and filling and, to our surprise, came with a free appetizer with our early dinner. If...

Very, very disappointing! General Tso's chicken was tough and tasteless. Hot and sour soup was good, above average.

The food was much better than the last time, must have a different chef. The wait staff showed professionalism, they actually made sure we had enough rice. If you are on Penn's campus this a must do.

Typical Americanized Chinese food. Not as greasy as most, not very favorable.Wait staff go thru the motions of being pleasant, you can sense the underling disdain.

This restaurant has average Chinese-American fare. The service is extremely fast and the food is good - IF you order the typical favorites. However, more recently I decided to order something less common for lunch. It took longer to get my meal - my colleagues had almost finished their meals by the time I got mine. The food was not...

This was the quickest service I've ever had in a Chinese restaurant. The waiter had barely removed our menus when our food arrived. The food was tasty and well-prepared. Standard American Chinese food. The atmosphere is nothing special. It is a BYOB college joint with large tables and a pretty lively crowd on a Friday night.
