I've been a fan of Peking for many, many years. I grew up in Northern Virginia and began going to Peking when it was a small store front. They catered our daughters wedding. Located in Culmore shopping center it is now a well known landmark. We've moved from Virginia but always find a way to visit... read more

I saw more ducks coming out of the kitchen, than anywhere else. The one particular thing i like about Peking Gourmet's duck is that the scrape the fat off the back of the skin before serving it. I know that sounds gross, but the delicate crispy skin is part of what makes peking duck such a special meal. We also... More

Located in a strip mall, this place is famous for its Peking duck and tha table side service where they prepare it for you.I also like their Szechuan beef proper. highly recommend their set dinners especially the ones with Peking duck. Reservations is a must , this place is usually packed with people waiting to be seated.

Peking Gourmet Inn is a must for the Chinese food aficionado. Peking duck that is crispy, tasty and perfectly prepared. It's what they're known for. But, they have many other dishes that are carefully created and consistently good (Szechuan beef proper, Hong Kong won ton soup, Jeo Yen shrimp and many others). Pictures on the wall tell the story of... More

Go for the duck and stay for the duck...oh, and chase it with four or five other dynamite dishes of your choosing. You have to get the duck, but the rest you can fill in to your taste. It's that simple.

The Peking Gourmet is a dining experience you shouldn't miss. Let's get the rough part over first: parking in a congested mall area, crowds generally waiting to get in and packed seating arrangements! But so what - go there for the food! Highlights are their leek dumplings in season and the Peking duck. You would have a tough time finding... More

It started with the waitress telling (or warning?) the two Chinese in our group that the food was strictly for "foreigners," not realizing that the rest of us -- the "laowai" -- also spoke and understood Chinese. The person who organized our dinner allowed the waitress to pretty much order for us, so I wasn't surprised at the $240 price... More

This is the best place to have duck! This is a childhood memory place, and now after 15 years it still has the same taste. A must try.

The duck is great every time but we tried the peking lamb chops and they were the best lamb chops I ever had! They were crisp on the outside but also tender inside. The flavor was amazing also. I want to try the peking spring chicken next time! Their wontons in the soup are nice and thin. Service is always... More
