Spicy offerings and lots of variety

We tried the dry fried eggplant app- it was fantastic! Next up, the spicy shrimp and one of the specials- chicken with red peppers and jalapeños. Tried sesame chicken to cool us off. White, brown or fried rice. A nice choice of wine and beers. It's very popular, so you might have to wait a... read more

Never had better Sichuan fare. Appetizer of lamb skewers over onion petals topped with onion/hot pepper was amazing. Totally unique dish with great flavor and spiciness. Entree was the three spice chicken. This was probably the spiciest dish I have ever had, but the flavor was not overwhelmed by the heat. Another amazing dish. Can't wait to go back and... More

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...

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
