Chinese food for Thanksgiving?

We'll be coming back for the holiday to visit my family. Instead of traditional dinner, I was thinking it might be fun to go out. They live in Cherry Hill, but would be willing to travel across the bridge.
Does anyone know of a good Chinese restaurant that would be open for Thanksgiving dinner? It would be nice if it was a step or two above hole-in-the wall, but food quality is the main concern.

  1. Try Ken's Seafood. They have lots of different types of food and not just seafood. My feeling is that MOST of the Chinese restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving.

      Lee How Fook at 219m N. 11th St. has wonderful food, communal eating tables with a Lazy Susan, and is a BYOB. Try the Sea Bass & great hot pots!!!

        All of Philadelphia chinatown will be open. I second both of the recommendations above. There is a lot of variety of Chinese restaurants from authentic Shanghainese with soup dumplings and hand pulled noodles, real Szechuan cuisine, the usual cantonese done extremely well. There is also Burmese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Malaysian. What type of food do you like?

          I like it all, especially Szechuan (which I have when we go to NY to visit my daughter). Looks like my sister meddled in Thankgiving, so we're having the traditional stuff, will have to have Chinese another night.

            For Szechuan, you might want to try Szechuan Tasty House. Hot and spicy deliciousness!

              I like Chun King Garden for szechuan. You do have to make sure they know you want the food szechuan spicy, if you really do.
