One of my favorite places to eat in Charlottesville. Dishes are different and have clever combinations of favors. Be warned though the spicy dishes tend to be much more spicy than usual. Lots of chillis. But asparagus and shrimp and the duck dishes are a delight and service is unhurried and not like many places that can't wait to get... More

This started off as an excellent restaurant with many authentic dishes. It has gotten progressively worse, with the last occasion being in fact, the last occasion. One of our party ordered a curry dish which was clearly made out of powdered curry. Mediocre.

Lunch at Peter Chang's, Had a craving for chinese food and since I had heard and read so many good things about Peter Chang's I figured I'd give it a try. BIG MISTAKE!!!!! Waited at the host station for more than 5 minutes before someone came to seat me. Once seated my server asked if I wanted anything to drink... More

I was really in the mood for Shrimp Schezwan but when I checked their menu online it only showed chicken. I gave them a call and they said they would be happy to make the Shrimp for me for an extra charge. My order was ready in 15 minutes so I took it back to my hotel. The meal had... More

All the food is excellent at this restaurant. My wife and I have tried many in Charlottesville, and this is one best in the town. Highly recommend for big groups going out to eat together. Portions are family style.

The shredded tofu skin in chili oil is unrivaled anywhere! Beautiful consistency, perfectly married flavors, and just the right amount of heat. Dry fried eggplant, oh my! Hot and numbing beef, Shan City chicken, hot pots galore. All of this and more for a wonderful Sczhewan meal. The lunch specials are also tasty, especially if you order the spicy ones.... More

Four of us enjoyed a delicious lunch of 7 plates of appetizers - Szechuan Bang Bang Shrimp, Szechuan Dan Dan Noodles (pork), Scallion Bubble Pan Cake, Dry Fried Eggplant, Cilantro Fish Rolls, Vegetarian Egg Rolls (2 orders). We did have to ask for rice which they brought. Each dish was better than the next, fresh, tasty, at a good temperature.... More

I love this restaurant as it is very different from the usual Chinese buffet/take-out places. Don't get me wrong, I love my sesame chicken and egg rolls, but Peter Chang's offers a great selection of dishes that feels more authentic and even exotic. I really like the cilantro fish rolls and my mother loves the seafood hot pot--she says it... More

Before leaving for our vacation I was saying how I wanted to find a nice sit down Chinese restaurant where I could just order off the menu what I wanted. Peter Chang's was just that. My husband and I loved what we ordered and the atmosphere was great. I would go back here again if ever in the area. I... More

Had dinner here with 20 of our family yesterday night. Food was wonderful and they accommodated our large group well. Scallion pancakes, curried seafood - yum, yum!
