ALMOST DIED OF INTERNAL BLEEDING
I went there last night and ordered Vegan Bean curd with garlic eggplant, and in my dish under a piece of tofu was a flat thin piece of a seashell larger then a quarter, not a clam, not an oyster, a thin sharp razor-ish sea-shell. I took a bite because I didn't see it under my beancurd/tofu and it almost cracked my teeth. If I would of swallowed it, I would of died from internal bleeding. I will never eat here ever again.

I am a food lover and being Chinese myself, I've had Asian seafood in a number of Aisian countries. If I were to recommend one place in Philadelphia for Asian seafood, Tai Lake is no doubt the place! Seafood is always pricy, so if you are looking for a cheap bite, not here :) But for your money, Tai Lake offers the best quality seafood, and it is well worth the price. It is definitely cheaper than going to other seafood places in and around the city. Services are always fast, but the waiting staff can sometimes be a bit quick and brief. It is not a 5-star restaurant, so don't look for that kind of service here. For the great food at this place, I certainly don't mind the slight downside. Be brave and try new dishes at this place, you are in for a treat!

This place can get pretty crowded on the weekends. They serve one of the better food in Chinatown, Philly. However, it can be inconsistant some nights. Might be due to the fact of chef changes. Overall, the sweet pork, walnut shrimp, lobster in bb were fine. Price was a bit high-$120 for a 6-7 course meal for this type of restaurant. But, i will be back.
