I order from the Peking Restaurant in downtown Richmond and Mechanicsville, VA all the time! The food is SO good. It's always served hot, the staff is friendly and the restaurants are clean. The prices are good. I would recommend the shrimp fried rice. The only down side, I wish they offered egg rolls as well as the spring rolls.

Stumbled on these, looking for a bowl of soup & spring rolls. Soup was excellent w/chili sauce to liven it up & bowl was HUGE! Non-fried spring rolls tasty. Atmosphere calm & clean. Service excellent. Lucky find & will stop by again if in the area.

We had the four grandchildren who were hungry and love chicken and rice. So we ordered some sweet and sour chicken, picked it up and all our troubles were solved. The price was good and the food was good and hot. The children especially liked the "sticky rice"

Got the lunch special something akin to triple delight it has chicken/shrimp/beef best part was the shrimp. Chicken was in very small pieces, the beef was overcooked almost like beef jerky. It said hot & spicy yet it was about as hot as the plain taco sauce at Taco Bell. Wife got Gen Tso chicken which was supposed to be... More

I am a ex-Chesterite, and when I come home, I always make sure I get Peking. This last time I visited, I only got food to-go, but it was awesome. The spring rolls are the best I have ever had, and the pickled turnips are a MUST. All of their soups are awesome, especially the egg drop. My go-to dish... More

The place is very clean and service is good. Although they are not exactly authentic Chinese (or I called it Americanized), their menu do have some authentic options. Overall, good restaurant.

In Chester for a soccer tournament. Went looking for a bite to eat and stumbled onto Peking. A little pricey but very tasty with large portions. General Tso Chicken was delicious. The egg rolls were more like spring rolls and weren't as good.

We have been patrons of this restaurant for many years and try to have a meal there every few weeks even though the location is more than 50 miles away. The food is always very good and the service is the best I have ever experienced. The management does an excellent job of training the staff and looking after the... More
