My husband and I have been visiting this Chinese for a long time and we absolutely love it. We recently made a visit and discovered it's now under new ownership but we found our experience to be much the same, the food was still delicious, we love the duck pancakes! If you're after a great Chinese feast this is certainly... More

I visited the Peking at the weekend with friends and found it a great disappointment. They must be new ownwers. The food was very poor in comparison with previous visits with these same friends. The staff were young and were not capable of understanding our very simple requirements and their training was non- existent. I was also concerned at the... More

Well what a pity, not the same without Maureen. Possibly the best front of house manager in Leicester. The food has suffered too, bland and lacking that special touch that made this restaurant , in my 30 years of patronage, one of the best Chinese around. I feel like have lost an old friend although I understand Maureen is now... More

Best place to go if you want proper home food! You know you're in a good place when you see it's packed with regulars all the time

We've eaten at the Peking for about 30 years and until recently thoroughly enjoyed the food. However, we have noticed a decline in standards. Even our Malaysian daughter-in-law no longer rates it very highly. Spicing and seasoning seems very variable with salty sweet and sour pork and bland seafood. It's recently been refurbished but they've stopped the very popular special... More

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions and have never been disappointed. He dim sum is authentic and very tasty. The service can be a little quirky, but they get there in the end. Their Chinese New Year is not to be missed. With dragons and fire crackers, yeah!!!

We go to this resturant at least once a month. We think that it has changed hands and menu offers. It was also short of customers which shows my point

We didn't have much time so chose the very reasonably priced £7.20 set meal comprising a starter or soup, main course with rice or noodles and a desert (fritters). The supply of prawn crackers was never ending. With a couple of soft drinks each, it came to just slightly more than £10 per head. I would certainly go again and... More
