So as a Cali girl I'm always on a mission to find quality and good tasting sushi wherever I go. This was the second location I've tried in the area and I am not impressed. We sampled a bit of everything seeing as though it is a bistro and offered other Asian fare...none of which will get me to return.... More

We are locals and get sushi from here at least once every other week. They never, ever disappoint with quality and appreciative service. All sushi is buy one get one free, and the quality of the sushi makes it a great deal! We not only enjoy eating in the dining room or at the sushi bar, but take out is... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and Peony was close by. My daughter was in the mood for Asian but we weren't particularly. Did this place ever change our mind! Yummy sushi (2 for 1) And the best dumplings I have ever had. Ever. And I have eaten lots of Asian dumplings! They even have mini dumplings which my... More

My hotel bartender recommended this Peony's. That was the best Asian food I have ever tasted. I even called the Restaurant back to Thank them also. Delivery was quick along with my food being prepared as I orderd it. I am going to be in the area for a while. I will be ordering from them at least twice a... More

Good place to get your Asian fix. Nice selection of entree's. HUGE sushi menu. Awesome service. Serve Pepsi products and no "Hunan" items on the menu, otherwise fantastic.

I go to this restaurant once a week. While the staff speaks little English, the food is some of the best Asian food that there is. The sushi is great and the soups are heavenly. In the background relaxing music plays. The only downside is the food can be a little bit on the expensive side, but it is still... More

Our hotel front desk highly recommended Peony Asian Bistro. We were not disappointed. We both had soup, spring rolls, and Chinese seafood dishes. All were excellent, delivered very quickly, and piping hot. Will definitely dine with Peony on our next visit to the area.

Our experience had us double-checking we had come to the right place. The staff was gruff and unfriendly. The sesame shrimp and broccoli was tasteless battered shrimp with three tiny pieces of broccoli. Even the shrimp dumpling were sad. The only semi-bright spot was the sushi, which was okay, but nowhere in the same league as other places Sushi love.

We are here as a party of 6 recently and the reviews from all 6 people were very high. The pros: the sushi is very, very good. It was very fresh, and the tempura was perfect. The sushi rolls are also all buy one get one free (which may have just been a holiday special, but a good deal nevertheless).... More
