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.

Food was not quite what I remember from the Peking but was good . The restaurant is very well laid out but the music was loud and did not help the ambience. I waited a
long time to get back to this restaurant and I probably will not be back in the near future.

Diners still squeamish about eating indoors will appreciate the breezy patio at Margaret Kuo's Kitchen. The food is wonderful and reasonably priced, the service attentive and the atmosphere charming. A perfect spot for a light lunch with a friend.

Not sure I would go back Anniversary dinner, had to wait 1/2 hour after being seated for a server. Then another 1/2 hour for drinks and food order. After two hours I could not wait to leave.

Eating lunch on the terrace on a sunny early autumn day was pure heaven. Our fare was light and delicious (my friend ordered chicken dumplings; I had a mixed salad and scallion pancakes), the service was friendly and efficient, the tables spaced (good covid protocol) and the prices reasonable . It was a bit windy, but in a way that only added to the charm. I’ll be back.
Highly recommended.

The room temperature was hot because the door to the outside veranda was kept open. It was at least 80 degrees in the restaurant. Not comfortable because of that. Service was slow because there wasn’t enough help. The waiter was very nice and worked as fast as he could but had too many tables. Food was good. Maitre d wasn’t very friendly upon our entrance to the restaurant.

Dinner with 2 friends; we all enjoyed our meals. We ordered the "Shanghai steamed pork soup buns' as an appetizer to share; interesting and very good. For our main courses, we had the chilean sea bass, one with the plum sauce and the other with ginger sauce. I had the Jumbo Shrimp Shanghai; it was served with broccoli and a slightly sweet sauce; delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and patient as we took almost 45 minutes to order; too much chatting!

We shared the boneless ribs as a starter. The ribs were flavorful, tender and plentiful! I had the mandarin steak with spring pancakes and it also was tender and delicious. My boyfriend ordered the General Tso's chicken. He said it was better than PF Chang's.

I have been eating at Margaret Kuo's restaurants in the greater Philadelphia region for many years. You pay a premium to go as the food and service and ambience is better than the average chinese restaurant and a far cry from take out. However, we went there for a Mother's day dinner and the service was slow and poor. The drinks were expensive and mediocre. The food was good but not great. I expect more for the price tag we paid. Above all, they ran out of white rice. I have never heard of a chinese restaurant running out of white rice. I will not likely return but the sushi was good enough for take out.

My youngest daughter loves Chinese food. We decided to try this restaurant. It was fantastic. The waitstaff was outstanding. My other daughter ( 10 years old) wanted the sushi dinner. It was very fresh and very tasty. Half way through, .the youngest one stated that here it is where she wants to have her 8 year-old birthday dinner on Friday 4/30/21. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and my wife had the honey nut shrimp, both were awesome. This place diffidently deserves a second visit.
