Good food, well spiced, and hot, plentiful

Good chinese chef and great wait service. These people were so kind and accomodating given the circumstances of 19 people descending upon them en mass in an unexpected way

I can't say enough about this restaurant. The menu selection is great, and the specials are eclectic. Meals that you won't see anywhere else. If you love spicy food, this restaurant is the place for you. Try the chicken with chestnuts stew. It is outstanding. Be adventurous and try something on the edge.

Went there because it got good reviews in the past. Upon arrival we were told they only can seat us in the right side of the restaurant, because on the other side the heat didn't work! Food was good, but overpriced. $10 -12 for a veggie stir fry. Wish they would offer brown rice.

Stopped by recently for lunch. Peter Chang's is located in the former Wild Greens restaurant, Barracks Road shopping center. For a recently opened restaurant, the interior had not been "freshend up" as restaurant walls still bore chair scrapes from former restaurant. We ordered Orange Chicken and Kung Pao chicken. The Orange Chicken as so bad I didn't eat it. They... More

I've been to Peter Chang's China Grill probably a dozen times. This last time (on Christmas) was quite dissappointing. In the past, one of my favorite dishes was the Dry Fried Eggplant. Very crispy, wonderfully spiced, irresistable. However, that day, it was mushy and flavorless, too breaded. When the waiter came to check on us, I mentioned it, and he... More

Peter Chang is not new to Charlottesville. Several years ago he relocated to Charlottesville to open a small restaurant offering great food but on a small scale. He needed a breather from the hectic life. Very quickly the restaurant became extremely popular and it was buzzing with activity. This is not what Peter Chang was looking for. He packed up... More

I used to think Taste of China was a lot better than PCCG, but the last two times I have gone it is equally good with better service and a proper selection of cold beer and wine. Time before, I had the ma la combination. Very good! Just the right amount of spice. Last time I had grandma's pork. Apparently... More

People keep raving about what a great restaurant this is and how I absolutely must go or I'd be missing out. I went with my parents in hopes of eating delicious food and left highly disappointed. We were served our food quickly, which was a plus. However the waiter got our order wrong and gave us a wrong dish. He... More

Six of us had a huge lunch at Peter Chang. We had 2 appetizers and then each ordered one dish to share. We tried to cover the spectrum of dishes offered at the restaurant. Most of us had given up Chinese restaurants because the menu never changes, the preparation is so tired, and often the ingredients second rate. But at... More
