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..

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.

Food is excellent and the service is great. Lots of unusual dishes and each time we go we try something different and it is always great.

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.

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.
