im not too sure what happened but i havent seen sam in months i am a regular. i love the food. and its so south street. not to mention the entire staff is gone the food is now watery and that girl with all the glitter on her face seems so be badly covering up where he went at. if only i have a time machine i'd go back and eat more and again....my heart goes out to the lovers of sam........hopefully we will see him again.....

I found Golden Empress after the folks on the Philly Blog recommended it. It's been my go-to Chinese place for friends and family visiting Philly for almost three years now. Sam is an incredible host and the food is fantastic. I'm a regular because there's no other point is going anywhere else for Chinese. Rock on Sammy! SS

Agreed. Even after a recent make-over this place still looks like any run-of-the-mill Chinese food place, but it doesn't taste that way. My boyfriend and I are barely even regulars and Sam, the server, knows we don't even need a menu... it's the "usual" for us. The food is always great, the place is clean and Sam is awesome!! Definitely worth a try!

Fifteen years ago I lived a few blocks away from this hidden gem, and it quickly became my favorite Chinese restaurant. I've lived in the western suburbs for the past 10 years, but I still make the trek to Golden Empress Garden on a regular basis for their delicious vegetarian dishes. It appears to be just a typical tiny run-of-the-mill Chinese eatery, but appearances are deceiving. It's a "go out of your way" type of place. It The veggie dishes are yum-yum good!

I'm not a vegetarian, my girlfriend is (ovo-lacto), and we both agree the food is amazing there. If you are a meat eater, don't hold yourself back from the vegetarian menu either, the vegetarian chicken offers interesting tastes and textures that is a good substitute for meat or just an occasional change from "the usual." The vegetarian lemon-chicken is especially good. The only downside is that the place is often full of of those obnoxious vegetarian fashion-hippie types, so if you are not one of those, come in early or get take-out.

I've had several great expieriences with them. Also the food is really good. I support anyone who wants to go there. Whether they are vegetarian or not.

Golden Empress is a sitdown Chinese restaurant just off South Street with a full vegetarian menu. It's a lot less known than the better known vegan Chinese restaurants in Chinatown, but the food is really good here. And they deliver!
