We enjoyed our meal here... Ambience is nice. It seemed pretty busy but the service was good. Lots of options to choose from in the menu. They have vegetarian options too. I hope they include some more dumpling options (chicken & veg) as that was limited. Nice place to go out with family for some good chinese cuisine.

The food was excellent, great flavors, not the usual fare. Prices were pretty typical of Chinese restaurants, maybe a bit higher, but worth every penny. I wish Peter Chang's was closer to where I live in Massachusetts.

We were expecting something really good and different after all the publicity. We had a very nice dinner, the food was good, the service was just fine, and it wasn't that expensive. But it was just another good Chinese restaurant and not anything special or different. If you haven't been I would say it is worth trying but for us... More

When the waitress suggested an appetizer of a "scallion pancake" the server brought us two balloons full of air with a dipping sauce which were delicious! Tony's entree was HUGE and mine was really good. A great way to spend Christmas ('bout the ONLY way to eat in a commercial place on Christmas day.)

Not your usual America Chinese food. Excellent variety, complexity, in some ways different from any Chinese food we've had in the U.S. including in bigger cities. Some very spicy, some not, appeals to varied tastes. Ingredients are fresh. Bubble pancakes are a fun appetizer, esp for kids. Love the hot and numbing eggplant; never had a taste like that. Great...

Best Chinese in C'ville hands down. Friendly service, quality food. Lots of variety as well as veggie dinners.

I just came home from eating lunch at Peter Chang's and was sadly disappointed. I should have taken the recommendation from a reviewer on another site to order something different rather than the standard fare, but I thought I would order something relatively simple. While the service was very fast and very good it was the food itself that leads... More

My experience here was a mixed one. Food was good but nothing spectacular. Service was pretty awful, upon sitting down, we were given at most 30 seconds before being asked what we would like to eat, then after asking for more time, we were allowed another 30 seconds. In all, I felt they were intent on rushing us through our... More

Peter Chang is reputed to be one of the best Chinese Chefs in the U.S. and I agree based on a limited sample. He has a small Richmond based chain and a loyal group of followers. I enjoyed the Cumin Roast Lamb and my wife the Mongolian Beef. This is the first time I have had lamb in a Chinese... More

We shared two dishes: numbing chicken and eggplant with garlic sauce. The food was delicious, both for dinner and as a leftover the next morning for breakfast. I really enjoyed having spicy food unlike the normally bland Chinese food found elsewhere.
