A nice authentic Chinese restaurant on Penn's campus. Prices are reasonable and service is decent, with the food delicious and the atmosphere authentic. The dumplings, though pricey, are top notch and people rave about their $4 smoothies. For people who don't know Chinese food well, ask for the server's recommendation and try something new; please stay away from the "American Classics" like Orange Chicken or General Tso's.

im a 30 year old hispanic male who has been going to this restaurant since 1998. ive probably been there around 400 times. ive also taken around 30 different people to this place over the years so i like to think i was a loyal fan over the years. but recently things have changed. the most popular dishes such as the wonton noodle soup with duck and pork and the fried dumplings are just as good as they always were, just more expensive. however everything else they sell seem to be pretty bad. the portion sizes have shrunkin while the prices have shot up. fairly recently theyve gotten some new plates and silverware. they also serve small scoops of icecream with the check. the problem with this restaurant is that they seem to be trying to appeal to a different clientele, one that knows very little about ethnic food and is willing to pay more for less. this has been alienating asians over the years who are more familiar with chinatown and the better alternatives such as Davids Mai Lai Wah. so unless you are trying to get the signature dishes and are willing to deal with the signature horrrible service, then go to sangkee, if not, davids is a great alternative. the food is better cheaper and they dont care what kind of customer walks in the door.

When this restaurant first started, it was great. The food was fresh and excellent. The service was courteous and professional. Over time this place has gone downhill quickly. I was here last week -- the food was insipid, tasteless, and stale. I ordered one of their lunch boxes that comes with a salad, an appetizer, and a main dish. The lettuce in the salad had brown edges. The brown rice was cold. The appetizer was inedible. The food gave me a tummy ache. It's been a long, long, time since I went to a restaurant where the food gave me a tummy ache. Avoid this place.

I should begin with a disclaimer. I am Chinese, so that means I’ve eaten mostly Chinese food my entire life. My parents were immigrants, so we always ate Chinese food at home and whenever we went out. I’ve had a lot of exposure to real, authentic (and very fake) Chinese cuisine, so I’m a tad picky when it comes to Chinese food. Anyway, our overall experience was enjoyable, though in my opinion, Sangkee is more westernized than other Chinese restaurants. Normally, before you even order at a Chinese restaurant, your table is served a pot of tea. I had to request tea, which came in the form of a tea bag and a thermos of hot water. I thought it was fine, but my parents would definitely not approve. We ordered the steamed juicy pork buns, house pan-fried noodles, and pork with noodle soup. The noodles were okay. I’ve had better. I enjoyed the soup. It had a strong, salty flavor. The noodles were the same kind as the pan-fried ones. Sangkee is not known for their pan-fried noodles, so I would order something else instead. The sauce was rather bland and lacked any kind of character. I would bank on the steamed juicy pork buns, which were better than the ones I had last month in NYC Chinatown. The skin was steamed to perfection and had an “al dente” bite to it. The buns really were juicy, and they didn’t use too much vinegar as flavoring. I’ve had juicy pork buns where the juice was basically vinegar. If you’re looking for an appetizer, skip the spring rolls you can find at any food truck and go straight for the steamed juicy pork buns! --Samantha Shen
