A decent Chinese restaurant in Congress Park

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.

We are "regulars" with this place, having lived 2 years in Cheeseman Park area and now a year in Congress Park. We order a couple of times a month from Peter's so I can vouch for how consistently good it is! Last night it was spectacular. Yes, I used the word spectacular. I had the best drunken noodles with chicken... More

From the Lo Mein to the scallops, we've enjoyed a lot of different things on the menu. The lack of MSG could be part of its success. The delivery is always fast and arrives hot. Peter has done a great job maintaining a consistent quality. There isn't much of a restaurant atmosphere though and no bar area, so it is... More

Went here because it had an alright rating...and wanted Chinese, and were from Texas... Well, don't really recommend it. General Tso's was pretty good, 10 dollars, and friend got sesame chicken, same price. We had to get it to go because they were closing. Was in the middle of some neighborhood, NOT downtown. They gyped us on a rice, gave... More
