It is the best vegetarian chinese food I have ever had! The people are really nice.

I had eaten at Red Bamboo in NYC and was looking for something similar in Philly. I was really impressed with the food. I am definitely going back to New Harmony when I'm in Philly. I highly recommend General Tsao's chicken.... Nice to try out new vegetarian friendly stuff when we're usually confined to the usual bland stuff when eating out.

The food is very good and definitely of great value, however, the wash room is quite dirty and badly in need of a complete renovation. I hope the owners will read this and clean up. It will definitely make me not worry about the cleaniness of the kitchen (which we can not see) as much.

i have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years. the food is amazing, i drool just thinking about it. i live in another city now and still make pilgrimages down to philly to indulge. the baked beef bun is oddly fantastic and the orange beef is divine. i dont eat beef when it is not vegetarian but i used to. try this restaurant! it's great. i wish i were more articulate.

I agree with the last post. If anything, new harmony is slightly over-rated. It IS good, but it's not like this magical mecca for vegans in philadelphia. I'm actually a little partial to kingdom (same owners, same food) because upront they give you plastic chopsticks rather than silverware. (you're initially offered silverware at new harmony.) No booths here; i prefer my chinese food from a booth. But the food is good enough that it's not that big of a deal. The all-you-can-eat dim sum IS a good value, if you are starving and you love the appetizers, but there are plenty of other good staples on the menu, as well as more adventurous stuff like sticky rice wrapped with lotus leaf and vegetarian "shark fin" soup, all very good.

I am vegan, so this isn't an issue of my not thinking the dishes were meat-like enough. I just don't think they are flavorful enough. The mock beef dishes my friend and I got were fine, but could have used more spice. (If you don't like highly-spiced foods, you might like it much more than I did.) The taro appetizer was not the best don't get it. (Taro is best, in my opinion, when it is cut rather thinly and fried; here, big chunks of taro are breaded and fried, leaving the center mushy and bland.) We did like the tea.

The jumbo walnut shrimp are amazing. As is the scallion pancakes. Each dish is plenty for 2 people, it comes out to be really inexpensive.
