Not as great as I was lead to believe

The food didn't taste any better or worse or "authentic" than most other Mom and Pop Chinese Restaurants I have been to in my life. Not a very "welcoming" ambiance with the lighting. The food was good but not spectacular. The service was fast and professional but not friendly per se'.

This is not your standard Americanized Chinese fare. Excellent choices, good prices, good service and wonderful food. I would have given it 5 stars but I asked them to tone down the spice and it was still a little more than I like but the food was so good and the ingredients so fresh that I ate it anyway.

Two Tai Chi classes from Lynchburg merged for 14 course meal to celebrate the year of the Red Monkey. Great food. Excellent service. Enjoyable friendship. We look forward to do this again. - photo of menu was added.

Food was excellent. Service left a lot to be desired. Never asked for drinks order. We had to request although it came with meal. Started servicing courses but never gave us any steamed rice that these dishes are eaten with. We had to ask for the steamed rice and bowls. We had to ask for tea. Once we did cups... More

Okay, I've never had the benefit of living in New York or San Francisco or anywhere else where authentic Chinese food is available. All I've ever had is the strip mall version and the tired old restaurant in my home town. Peter Chang's was a revelation for me. Hot, delicious, bursting with flavor, fresh, delicious. Yeah, when we phoned ahead... More

We were not sure what to expect for Chinese food in Charlottesville compared to multitude of offerings near home (metro Northern Virginia). The dishes here were about average...mixed seafood in stone pot was the best, lots of fish (but not so much shrimp or scallops); the coriander fish roll appetizers also were good/different. The beef with vegetables and eggplant with... More

My husband and I had lunch here last Thursday. Our first clue as to what we were in store for should have been when the person seating us the menus on the table and turned and walked away. The server never smiled and seemed annoyed we were there. The wonton soup broth was inedible, the spring rolls were cold and... More

I spent a month a year working in China for 20 years. Went to many of the best restaurants in the country. The cooking in the last 10 years has in many places become spectacular. Peter Chang's food is competitive, especially if you like spicy hot and mouth numbing Szechuan cooking. I ate lunch there. Ate 2 appetizers both very... More
