Birthday Celebration!

A birthday celebration for one of the grandchildren (her favorite restaurant in Charlottesville), love the bubble pancakes, we shared the Beef Lo Mein & Tofu stir fry, tasty, I do wish they added a bit more veggies to their dishes.

Tucked away in the corner of a small strip mall on Barracks road just a few miles from the center of the University of Virginia resides a hidden gem, Peter Chang's China Grill. On the bulletin boards inside and outside of the restaurant you can read the very interesting story of Peter Chang and of his humble origin. The real... More

5 stars because it is consistent, reasonably priced, GOOD,friendly and has decent vegetarian options. I've probably eaten here 40 times. Of course, there have been some minor let downs buy, by and large, the consistency is excellent. And that's important because the dry fried eggplant, mushrooms and green beans are my favorites and, either over or undercooked, they won't be... More

Since I last visited Peter Chang's in Charlottesville the menu has changed somewhat. The food is still excellent but there seem to be fewer non-spicy dishes on the menu and more with 3 chillis by them. This is fine if you like very hot spicy food but not if you or your companion does not like their heads blown off... More

Good authentic chinese food. Tasyed sishuan dishes (very spicy): it was perfect. I travelled a lot in China, and I must admitt it is very chinese, not only the dishes, but also atmosphere and setting (not luxurious!)

We've been visiting Charlottesville pretty much every year for the last 8 years - and dinner at Peter Chang's has been part of our routine, in fact, our first stop. We've eaten Chinese cuisine in New York, London, Los Angeles, Vancouver, San Francisco, Chicago, and a few other cities. This is, by far, our favorite Chinese restaurant.

Food was of good quality, was able to have enough choices that weren't too spicy. Enjoyed the leftovers the next day as much as while there.

Excellent and authentic Chinese food, though a little too spicy in general for my taste. It's always difficult to find authentic Chinese food in the US but this is one of the exceptions.

We ate here in March and were absolutely Wowwed! We went back on Friday and may never go back. They have changed the menu, and nothing that we had in March was left on the new menu, except the spring rolls. One PO'd chef beat the smoked duck with his cleaver. Bone shards in every bite, and the duck was... More
