Mandarin Palace Restaurant Review

: This dimly lit restaurant has red lanterns swaying over red leatherette booths. The dependable Chinese food includes empress chicken with sweet-and-sour sauce and three delights in basket (beef, pork and chicken). There are always healthy choices such as steamed chicken with broccoli. General Tso’s chicken is a favorite. Inexpensive lunch specials draw lots of folks from nearby offices. Or take out your lunch and eat in nearby Rittenhouse Square. Online ordering and delivery is available.
