Small but great!!

I met a client here and they know Peter, who is quite the 'charmer'!!! I had the spicy chicken and my colleagues had their 'usuals'. Service was fast, friendly and they have lunch specials. A neighborhood restaurant so I am sure 'everyone' knows your name!

Stumbled on this gem when a restaurant across the street was closed. I love Chinese food, especially Sesame Chicken and Peter's has the best I've ever eaten. Since my first visit I've tried over a dozen different dishes and have never once been disappointed. The atmosphere is nonexistent as the building was clearly a gas station before. The lack of...

Peter's had a few sparse tables , the door was kept open and flies were inside . Chicken dumplings were tough . Shrimp with lobster sauce was very good . Peter was yelling unkindly at his staff . I might do a delivery , but never eat in again

I really liked their orange spiced chicken, I'm a big fan of their fried rice. It's a really small hole in the wall operation with just a few tables and chairs. Needs a remodel really badly. But because of the good food and the nice cashier I give it 4 stars. Thanks for a nice lunch.

If you do not want (at least) day old food, then avoid this place. The chicken was terribly dry and hard as a rock! I couldn't even eat their food I took to-go. I should have known they were cheap because they could not fix the light in their sign... Never going back.

My husband and I have been driving and walking past Peter's for quite some time and finally, we decided to try it upon the recommendation of a neighbor, who really loves Chinese food. We were not disappointed. The owner is friendly and talkative. He told us all about his business (he does a lot of catering all over Denver) while... More

You have places in your neighborhood where you get one or two dishes for take out... this is mine... I don't think I have ordered any thing other than fried rice or sesame chicken in about thirty years in this neighborhood. Don't expect a sit down dining experience, I think the place has only two table and four chairs.... it... More

My boyfriend and I shared three dishes here last week. We absolutely loved the chow fun noodles and the broccoli in garlic sauce. We also had the masamam curry. The menu said all the Thai dishes were new - the curry was one of the worst we've had. I suggest you stick to the Chinese items and let Peter figure... More

So my girlfriend had been telling me about this place for quite some time so once we went to Denver I wanted to try it. First off, the location of the restaurant and the restaurant itself are nothing special at all. From the outside you would question it's appearance and ask yourself if it's worth even going in because it... More

We have had takeout from Peter's on two occasions. You can choose from a large menu and none of the dishes have been disappointing. Portions are ample and the prices are reasonable. Peter's delivers and quickly.
