We tried the spicy pork ears -- best we have ever had, and we have tried them in many places (my wife is Taiwanese -- she especially likes these due to their thinness of cut and crispiness -- not fatty as some are); also tried the excellent cold spicy noodles (good even the next day -- we bought takeout to...

I hope I return to Philadelphia so I can eat at Nan Zhou again. My mouth just started watering while typing this review. Clean restaurant that had many choices on their menu. Service wasn't the friendliest but the food makes up for it. I ordered the vegetable noodles and it was amazing. Not over salted or seasoned. It was absolutely... More

Clean and fresh, our experience was better than expected. The wait staff was excellent, the restaurant very clean. My noodle bowl was full to the brim. I'm eager to go back!

And Quick. Our Chinese friends treated us to an afternoon delight with delicious shrimp noodles, beef tendon noodles, spicy aromatic mixed platter - 2 flavors topped sweet fried buns!

If you enjoy very authentic Asian cooking, then you will not be disappointed. The noodles are delicious and the soup broth has a rich flavor. Beef was perfectly cooked with just a hint of seasoning. A perfect warm meal on a cold winter day.

After eating here for many years, we stopped back recently and yet again were not disappointed! My wife dreams of hand drawn noodles and having tried the other choices in the area she swears Nan Zhou Hand Drawn Noodle House is the best! Their new location is way bigger and cleaner than before and the food is just as good.... More

the drawn noodles are plentiful and there was a nice amount of fish in the stir fry. Brown sauce had a little bit which was wonderful. The shrimp soup was hot and delicious as well. The spring rolls were crispy but not overly greasy.

The environment is fine, and the food well priced. The soup broth tasted pretty good. Servers were far from friendly, "beef brisket" (as mentioned in other reviews here) is literally just big chunks of fat (and not at all tasty). Shrimp fried noodles included only noodles and shrimp (duh?), But were no better than any corner Chinese restaurant. Don't bother.

My family have been here numerous times and whenever I am in Philly for a meeting, I bring colleagues with me. WE LOVE THIS PLACE. The noodle soups never disappointed. We love the cold plates of beef tendon, pig ears, and sliced beef to add more texture and spices to our dinner. This is what I call an eating establishment,... More

My third visit in 18 months, and my third time totally satisfied with a superb bowl of soup. I brought my friend this time, her first, and she agreed, best soup ever. A huge bowl of tender noodles, delicate slices of beef, thinly sliced ginger root, celery, cilantro, and greens in a flavorful broth. The wait staff may not always... More
