Best choice at the north end of town

We had a family dinner at Peter Chang's. Every dish we order was fabulous. The restaurant was crowded, you should be sure to make a reservation. Our server was very attentive initially, but once dinner was served we never saw him again. (if not for the server it would be a 5 star)

The dishes are really hit or miss. We decided to order 4 dishes and do a family style. 2 of 4 dishes were really good. The duck with deep fried onions was bad, the duck was mainly fat and skin and the onions were like a high class Funyuns. The other dish was so overwhelmed by one herb you couldn't... More

The atmosphere can be a little sloppy and noise levels can be loud, but the food here is stellar. The seasoning on all of the vegetable dishes is second to none. I absolutely love the spiciness of the food and the numbing chili is very unique. Definitely recommend for a different sort of Chinese food experience than one gets at... More

Based on recommendations from some Asian UVA students, we dined here. The food was excellent! I will probably order Basil Eggplant in Clay Pot again. If you like spicy vegetarian dishes, you might try spicy vegetarian chicken or eggplant with spicy garlic. Craig Herberg

This place has been talked about a lot in Charlottesville- what a great chef, etc. Went with the family for a try. It's "OK" not great. A bit higher in price than some. Staff seemed to rush us, but were pleasant enough. General Tsao was good, not great. pork dish was a lot more spicy than I like (and not... More

When in Charlottesville, I usually head to Taste of China for a meal or two, but I decided to branch out on this last visit and try Peter Chang’s China Grill. I was not disappointed. Chef Peter Chang headed up the kitchen at Taste of China until 2010, when he moved out and set up his own restaurant group in... More

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 bit. The place is well... 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.
