This place is a hidden local gem in Philly Chinatown!! The place is small & crowded but it's a family owned restaurant and all the food are prepared in real-time, so be aware of going for lunch during the busy time! But it was worth it to wait for freshly prepared food! The sesame shrimp was freshly fried and the sauce was a perfect combination of sweet & saltiness. The Taiwanese beef noodle soup broth was a bit salty and didn't really had that herbal broth taste to me, but the beef & noodle were perfectly cooked! I was surprised by their "Fried rice noodle" because it really had that Taiwanese night market taste in it!! Will come back to try more their other dishes (other rice noodles) & their hand dripped coffee soon!

Good but pricey. I've heard many friends rave about Ray's Cafe but it didn't live up to the same expectations. We got the Taiwanese beef noodle soup and the leek box and those 2 items cost $40 before tip. The food was good but I didn't feel like it justified the price. The beef soup was flavorful but missed a certain umami. The leek box was also good but not super noteworthy. I would go there for a snack but I'm not be willing to pay the money for a full meal.
