Very good. I especially recommend the bubble pancakes and the bamboo fish. If you're afraid of the spiciness you can order mild and they will accommodate you, as they did for our party, which included an 80 year old and an 8 year old..

We ate here in March and were absolutely Wowwed! We went back on Friday and may never go back. They have changed the menu, and nothing that we had in March was left on the new menu, except the spring rolls. One PO'd chef beat the smoked duck with his cleaver. Bone shards in every bite, and the duck was... More

I have visited several times, this is arguably the best Chinese cuisine for several hundred miles in any direction. I have even had friends plan a trip to C'ville just to eat here..and they were not disappointed.

Authentic. Extraordinary menu items available. Everything that came to our table got a big "thumbs up" by our group. The best won ton soup I've ever had! The hot pots are amazing. Wish I lived in Charlottesville so I could be a regular!

The fried eggplant, fried pork belly, and the fish were great. Generally I am not a big fan of Chinese food, having had lots of low quality Chinese food from takeout places in my years of living in NYC. But Peter Chang's is absolutely terrific

Peter Chang's restaurant offers a great abundance of interesting Chinese foods. A creative approach to the ingredients, from tofu skins to fish. Nice blend of spices and preparations. Ample portions, good service. Worth a visit.

Believe it or not, probably one of the most authentic chinese food in the US and in Charlottesville. Prices are reasonable. But there seems to be a communications issue when ordering. But the food is served quickly and more importantly as an Asian from Asia, the taste in pretty close to an a restaurant in Asia. Overall good food and... More

This is a sichuan restaurant. For those unfamilar, Sichuan cuisine is spicy. We had the scallion bubble pancake, spicy diced fried chicken, brocolli beef, and crispy fish. The first two dishes were excellent, the latter two more ordinary. Long story short, go for the Sicuan dishes, and forget the more Americanized dishes.
