Chinese in the US

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.

I have been here about 6 times now and it has gotten better each time I go there . love the hot & spicy tofu, it is spicy with a red chile oil and fresh cilantro. Love it. They have a Szechwan Eggplant that looks like steak fries, crispy on the out side and toss in dry Szechwan spices 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.

Dry fried duck appetizer is not to be missed. The fried rice is also special. Nice atmosphere and clientele.

First of all, we love Asian food but generally find most Chinese restaurants quite indistinctive. Thus, Chinese food is our least favorite Asian cuisine. At least it was until we ate at Peter Chang's here in Charlottesville. The menu is quite exotic. Many dishes we have never seen on an American-based Chinese restaurant menu. We have tried a number of... More

Food is absolutely delicious! Authentic Chinese. Great Service. Good location, lots of parking. Nothing to dislike here. Also, very casual but nice dining room.

Have eaten twice at this restaurant. I recommend the dry fried eggplant and the chicken lettuce wraps. My friend thought the chicken broccoli was excellent! The kitchen will adjust the heat of many dishes to suit your personal taste, which was a welcome adjustment for my husband and my friend. Wonderful lunch specials with very generous portions.

I've eaten at this place more than ten times -- mostly dinner plus one lunch and one Sunday brunch. There are some misses, for sure, but the food is almost always excellent. Staff are friendly and seem to stay around. It is usually pretty busy though there are no reservations for less than six -- we've never had to stand... More

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
