While on vacation in the Shenandoah Mountains, my son was watching TV the night before and wanted to try it out. I was up for the drive but not sure especially if it was on the television show known for the odd foods on it's menus. Well it wasn't far off. First you need to like spice as most dishes... More

Dined here on Christmas night with the rest of the Jews, Arabs, Agnostics and Atheists. It was a hoot. In my view there are two kinds of Chinese. Neighborhood Chinese is pretty much the same where ever you go. Must all be out of the same can. "One off" meals that are original to the restaurant sets this kind of... More

The food is OK,service was quick but absolutely no atmosphere. You have no desire to stay longer then necessary. Get one of the house specialties they're alright but really hot.

The food was fabulous. The regular menu features many of the standard Chinese dishes, with emphasis on the Sezchaun style of cooking. There was a second menu with three appetizers and about a dozen entrees that the waiter explained was more of a rotational thing - sort of the menu of specials. I had dry fried eggplant for an appetizer... More

If you like spicy Chinese dishes, then Peter Chang's is for you. I have been many times and am never disappointed. Great food and great service. The hot and numbing shredded tofu skin app is the best app that I have had anywhere!

We had a great variety of good between the three of us. The service and the food was excellent. The food was authentic Chinese and just superb. Flavors were wonderful and plenty of food left over for dinner the next night. Since we were on the road heating up in the microwave at the next town gave us another meal.

Clean and good service but food was not as tasty as we hoped. Kung Pao seafood was not spicy enough and Bang Bang shrimp appetizer had too much sauce. Average at best.

This restaurant has a delightful mix of cuisines. My daughters love the puffy scallion pancakes and curry sauce.

Really great food. A wonderful compromise. Hubby could get something spicy while I stayed in the mild end of the pool. Had the scallion bubble pancakes. As tasty to eat as they were fun. Service was amazing. Two people not our waiter refilled our sodas, fdirty plates whisked away by someone else. Great experience!
