Our first time dining here but it won’t be our last. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The spring rolls were crispy but not greasy. The soup was hot and spicy. The tofu with cashews were a yummy appetizer. Our entrees were excellent.

My only criticism is that the interior is worn and needs updating. My seat cushion covering was torn up. Go for the food, not the decor.

What can I say other than Perfect as usual! The service is prompt and professional, the spring rolls are crispy to a fault. Steamed dumplings are amazing. We always order the Sesame Tofu...crispy cubes of tofu in amazing sauce, surrounded by fresh crunchy broccoli. Teriyaki steak was super yummy. Brown rice was just right. Tea is constantly refilled. This is our favorite Chinese restaurant of ANYwhere we’ve ever eaten...and we re not vegetarians!!

We ordered a steamed dumpling appetizer, General Tso's Tofu, and a tofu with eggplant and mushrooms hot pot. The dumplings were a delightful surprise -- creamy filling instead of the usual little ball bearing of meat or shrimp. General Tso was nicely arranged with the sauced tofu in the middle of a corona of steamed broccoli florets. The tofu cubes had a crust around a soft filling, and the sauce was flavorful -- more gelatinous in texture than the usual goopy consistency. In spite of all the dried peppers, it wasn't spicy at all, which was a minor disappointment as far as I'm concerned. The hot pot was wonderfully flavored and rich-tasting. Service was friendly and attentive. All in all, a good choice when you want something a little different. You won't find a kosher vegan Chinese restaurant on every corner, after all.

I've been here twice and BOTH visits were amazing. The food is delicious, the service is incredibly attentive, and there are SO many options. I like that they have a variety of portion sizes so you can put together 3-4 small plates if you want to try new things and make a meal of it. The non-vegetarians in our group were impressed with the protein tastes and textures.

I am a vegan. It is awesome to find a 100% plant based place to eat in Philly. Most places are vegetarian which includes animal products that I don't eat. We had the Soi Mai, dumplings, bbq seitan appetizer, General Tso's Seitan and Veg Steak Stips with Veggies. All we delicious. I am still snacking on the General Tso Seitan. I am a vegan chef and it was cool to find a place where I can eat everything on the menu😊

Was pretty good overall. Service was good and kept the tea and water coming. Appetizers were just so-so. Spring rolls and dumplings. Main courses were really good. Worth a shot. Will be back to try again.

Su Xing's food was excellent and very tasty. When we got there, we waited a long time for water, tea, and wine glasses. I finally asked one of the waiters if he was our waiter, and he said he wasn't but he could take our orders. He then brought us water, tea and wine glasses. He was mostly our waiter, but occasionally someone else brought some of the food. One of my friends ordered an appetizer that they forgot about. (We were part of Vegan Restaurant week). We did mention it and it came when he was halfway through his entree. Other than that we had a delicious dinner that was very reasonably priced.

A safe haven for vegetarians, especially those who love Asian food. I am always skeptical of Chinese restaurants that have meat in almost every meal, so it was so reassuring to have a 100% meatless menu. Food is also quite tasty, although my particular dish was lacking in variety. Nice location and ambiance is soothing and homey.

Amazing Chinese food, really enjoyed by the vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. The highlight was the Peking Duck, you must order it. Everyone loved the General Tso's tofu and the five spice mushrooms as well. The green beans were crisp and tasty.

Su Xing House was a great place to take my wife for Mother's Day. We chose it because they focus on vegetarian and vegan options. From the start, with promptly refilled jasmine tea piping hot, to the end of the meal, our server (I am not good on names, I believe it was Margie) and her assistants were attentive, cheerful, and helpful. I am on a cardiac healthy, Dr Esselstyn diet, vegan with no oil or nuts, and I asked what would fit my diet. The suggested choices, Three Mushroom soup and Assorted Vegetables Chen-Tu Style met my needs and were delicious, cooked just right, and portions were generous. My wife's Teriyaki Steak (soy) had great flavor and texture. The atmosphere was relaxed and cordial. We will be back, and we recommend you visit soon. It has limited seating, so make a reservation. Open Table worked very smoothly.

This Chinese vegetarian/vegan restaurant hit all the high notes. The dining room was quiet, the food superb, and the service well paced. The mapo tofu was especially flavorful, the long noodle & tofu dish delicious, and the tofu skin with mushrooms was a special treat. Truly a wonderful and delicious meal!

Was very excited finding this vegetarian place.
Waiter made us all anxious at the table.
He seemed clueless, was not helpful when responding to questions about the menu.
He brought our food to the table before clearing off the many appetizer dishes still on the table - -
and left to bring more entrees without taking them again. I put them into his hand.
Simply not a relaxing or enjoyable meal. Will probably not go back.

My wife and I were in Philadelphia for a two day get away. Found Su Xing House on Yelp. It didn’t disappoint. They sat us a window table, just above street level. The lighting was just right! Very little noise and our waitress was very attentive. And by the way, the food was delicious. We highly recommend.

Other than the mushroom soup which we enjoyed, perhaps the worst meal we’ve ever eaten. To be fair we didn’t realize it was vegan. We love vegetables so we thought it would be ok, but nothing tasted fresh or flavorful. The staff was kind but forgot several items we ordered. The fried bananas we’re heavily breaded bananas (not plantains), the dumplings and lo mein had no flavor. The fake fish was some soy product shaped like a fish. Weird in looks and flavor. The mushroom strips tasted like fried bread. The broccoli that came with it had no seasoning at all. We don’t recommend it.

I love this restaurant in general, but this particular visit I made a reservation and got exactly what I asked for: a booth by the window with privacy. The waiter was great and the food was out of this world. The price is also awesome. I’ll definitely be back!!

Great vegan and vegetarian food, extremely friendly and attentive waitstaff! We were pleased with the variety of choices. There are some weird translations of some dishes, so you get things like "shredded protein" or "glutinous" etc., but that just adds to the charm of the place. I ordered a spicy dish and it wasn't spicy at all, which was disappointing, plus a side dish of cucumbers were very tough with thick skin, so that's why they're only getting 4 stars, but other food that came to the table was amazing. I will eat there again! (And again... and again...)

I took my wife to SU for her birthday, It was something she has been wanting to try out since we LOVE chinese food but recently have started a pescatarian lifestyle. Needless to see the food was AMAZING! The General Tso's dish will have me returning very shortly. I enjoyed the Jasmine Tea refills during the night!

I visited Su Xing with my parents before a show. We live in NJ and made the drive down specifically to go to this restaurant because we heard good things. It was 100% worth the effort of going out of our way! The food was SO good. I've been a vegetarian for 10+ years and my mom has been a vegan for 5, and it's such a fun experience to go to a restaurant and be able to pick anything off the menu. The ambience in the restaurant was also very special -- super cozy, warm, and inviting, with lovely string lights at the windows. I will definitely being visiting again and bringing friends!
