At the far end of a small Andorra strip mall housing an insurance office, a paint store and an Irish pub, you’ll find surprisingly sleek Lucky Star Asian Cuisine. Serving numerous Chinese, Japanese and Thai dishes, this Philadelphia restaurant has a menu that seems to go on forever. A run of chef’s specials and “must-try entrées” focus on Chinese and Thai options both familiar – sesame beef, pad Thai – and obscure, like a peach chicken dish, or the Thai beef in country wine sauce. On the Japanese side of the menu, there are more than three-dozen eight-piece sushi rolls to choose from, plus assorted other delicacies. Lunch specials are offered for all three cuisines and delivery is available, but the pebble-rock wall at the entrance, dark cherry tables accented with light bamboo and warm atmosphere make for an inviting dine-in experience.
