I am very disappointed in the food from Jin House, especially with all of the great reviews online. I ordered online, and while my order arrived in under an hour (50 minutes), it was partially wrong and partially gross. I ordered steamed dumplings and got them fried which I HATE, and to make it worse most of them were burnt, no just browned, but burnt. I also ordered lemon chicken, which was served with the lemon dipping sauce on the side? I personally have never received lemon chicken prepared this way. The sauce was bitter and had an off taste. My shrimp roll was underdone (barely crispy and very pale colored). All in all, after my first time ordering, I wouldn't recommend ordering from this place. I've had way better chinese food. Such a waste of money.

We love Jin House. Great food. Great service. Great value. We order out often and every now and then go for the BYOB. Highly recommend it!

This is one of my favorite chinese places in Philly. The food is always great, the service is pretty fast and they never screw up! I ordered from another place and after 45 minutes I called them and they never placed my order. I cancelled my order there, called Jin House and had it in 20 minutes!

Jin House is my favorite place. Another good place in this area is Szechuan China Royal - but Jin House has a unique style, fresh and delicious.

Have ordered takeout from Jin House a number of times and their chinese food is always delicious--savory but not too salty dumplings and soup, good entrees as well with generous portions. My husband and I were in the mood for sushi too so figured we would order some of each. Bad mistake. The rolls we got looked like an amateur made them and the fish and avocado did not look fresh. I took one bite of my alaska roll and had to spit it out, and he did the same with his spicy tuna. Bottom line is--stick to the chinese cuisine because they do it very well. I think that was the worst sushi I have ever eaten.

Just had Jin House for the first time today. I ordered the "Jin House CHicken" which is like small pieces of white meat chicken, in a very good sort of General Tso style (the sauce is excellent, not too sweet, just right) - with water chestnuts, baby corns, snow peas..... Excellent flavor, excellent spiciness....vegetables were cooked properly (they still had some crunch as they should) chicken was tender and delicious. 5/5 Also had the Spider Roll - Very good 5/5 - good stuff in that roll, not cheap filler.

I am always speculative of chinese food because you never know what you will get with a new restaurant but this place is so great! The service is friendly and the price is very good. The food is definitely the best around the neighborhood. Their Gen Tso is always good and popular. Besides, they had Jin House Chicken, which is just as good. I like their Triple Delight the most!!! And also the japanese is not bad, either. I love Jin House!!
