Went to so good with my wife, we were lucky to get a table without a reservation and, as always the food was excellent. I have never had a dish there that was not excellent. The decor is not fancy but you go there for the great food. A lot of people order take out from there as well. Some... More

This is the place to drop in after a movie with friends, hopefully get a table and to enjoy some very delicious freshly made Chinese dishes - always great specials on the board. The menu is extensive offering Chinese and other south east Asian favourites. The service is pleasant in a very casual atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. Street parking is... More

This is our family's go-to place for tasty Chinese food in Ottawa. We've always been pleased with it and our last experience was no different. We love the Hunan beef, Shanghai noodles and Wu Se chicken. We just wish Peter - So, hence the name - was there more often!

We had a little family reunion in Ottawa with nieces and nephews the last week of August. The service was great and the food quite tasty. Not expensive and easy to find. Certainly not fancy, but very welcoming! Would go there again for sure!

If you're hungry and want great-tasting Chinese food but aren't finicky about the ambiance or décor of the restaurant, this is a good place to go. They have an extensive menu and if you don't see or know what you want, they'll ask you questions to help identify the best choice and they'll cook up whatever you want. They have... More

I have only been there for lunch. The first time I ordered a fish dish which was a little bland but I think it was suppose to be. The next time I ordered the eggplant and shrip Thai dish. Yummy! Good price too. For about 10$ you get a big plate of food and a starter of either hot &... More

Excellent service, and awesome Chinese food! Probably the best in the city. My first time ordering from them was late night but they were happy to take it. From that day I was addicted. Have been going there when I can or when I'm around. I Will definitely consider having A la carte and dine in with friends and family... More
