Chinese
In her latest iteration, Margaret Kuo successfully harmonized classic Chinese cuisine with with nouveau Asia. The modern interior creates a stylish atmosphere while also rendering an eclectic and comfortable experience. The outdoor patio which hugs the corner of the restaurant is an inviting space while maintaining a sense of inclusiveness with the interior. It is a reincarnation of her Peking restaurant and more.

    We had the 8 course New Year dinner which was excellent. Very unique and tasty dishes. Our waitress was. Eye friendly and explained each dish. Margaret Kyo also visited our table several times to describe the dishes. What a wonderful experience!

    Service was painfully slow. Appeared there were two large groups. We waited over 30 minutes for our check after asking for it to be given to us. Food was ok and the cost was low but the original in the mall next to Boscos was so much better. Sadly a favorite seems to have jumped the shark.

    The table we sat at was uncomfortably close to the people next to us. I couldn't take off my coat or get into the bench seat without disturbing the table next to us. The food was better than average quality but it was still just typical Asian cuisine priced at top dollar. Disappointing options for vegetarians with descriptions on the menu nonexistent. I ordered the soft noodles with vegetables dish expecting some vegetables and got good quality lo mein with a small amount of shredded carrots, onion and cabbage for $15. The spicy tuna roll was very good.

    Good food overall but they were very busy. Had to wait about 15 min to be seated even though we had made reservations. The cocktail was very weak. Our main dishes didn’t come out together so by the time the other arrived the first dish was not hot any longer. The appetizers were good though as were the main dishes. Lots of big parties so it was a bit noisy. Overall I’d try again probably not on a busy Saturday evening.

    Indignities encountered: Reservations written on a wet piece of paper and pointed at rudely by the host. No host stand to speak of. Ten minutes to set up a table. Host did not walk us to our table. Drink orders not taken until meals taken. Waiter told us about hour-long waits for food, and then presented a disgusting wet piece of handwritten paper for stuff to order that wouldn't take an hour. Slimy kung Pao chicken. Hair in the fried rice. Was told 30 minutes for appetizers but those didn't show up in the hour we ate our entrees. Waiter tried to bill us for the appetizers as if we were in some inner city IHOP. This place made me rethink the stagnant state of Chinese cuisine nationally and Philadelphia's place in the national dining scene. Thanks for ruining Christmas for us. You should be so proud.

    We go back every 2-3 months. We try to order entrees that aren't typical for an Asian restaurant - never disappointed. We both had the black bass, she with scallions and garlic, me Hunan spicy. Both were absolutely delicious. Last time, I had the lamb stew - incredible.

    The restaurant has outdoor dining and the door blew open every minute, freezing us. The servers were serving a private party and we waited 30 minutes for them to slice and serve after they showed us our duck dinner. Food was tasty but we will not be going back. Takeout only.

    Very much enjoyed our dinner. Three friends looking to have a nice evening. Our service was great, food, as usual, was great. Our only issue was the fire alarm continued to go off. Really hard to hold a conversation with the noise. There was no threat to anyone and not the fault of the restaurant. This will not prevent us from returning. We have been dinning at Kuo’s for over 35 years. She must be doing something right. Thank you again.

    Ordered the Tofu dish, left most of it in the bowl, no imagination just tofu and rice in the side. They need to improve their dishes if they want to be considered a decent restaurant

    We frequent this restaurant often. The waiter did not understand mostly what we were saying. Also every time I try to order a certain soup on their menu they never have it. Tried to order 2 different desserts and they said they had neither which I think they just didn’t feel like making it because it’s made table side.

    I was expecting more. Ordered the Royal Peking Duck. MK no longer does the table side carving of the duck. I think bc tables are so close together. All done in kitchen. Duck was cold by the time it came to us. Water glass only refilled when asked. No other drinks refilled. Had to ask twice for a knife for my daughter. Tea was made too hot and hat burnt leaves. Not much tea for $7. No ambiance (music) and cramped feeling in their (new) space. Overall, I think I will stick with the State street location or just go to other Chinese and save $$
