Really quite good

As an out of town visitor, I was lured in by the other reviews - and I'd have to say, the food lived up to them. The combination hot pot was just the right amount of spicy, very tasty, and *huge* - I ended up taking almost half of it back to the hotel. My server was also very good... read more

We have been here probably 5-6 times since they opened & love it!! I went last night and had #81 on the waitresses recommendation. That's the chicken with special sauce over steamed veggies. I had requested something not spicy, and this was perfect! Similar to teriyaki taste. Our other favorites are the fried eggplant, bang bang shrimp, & spring rolls.

We had read about Peter Chang and his move into the Richmond area but hadn't tried it till this week. We were so pleased that we came back three times in one week (and we live 200 miles away! This would be so much fun with a group so you could try even more of the very interesting dishes. We've... More

My family and I eat here on almost a weekly basis. This is a small restaurant next to a Wal-Mart that is a hidden secret in Glen Allen. Doesn't look like much from the outside or even when you walk in but the food is phenomenal. Recommendations are the minced chicken lettuce wraps as these are a must. I also... More

The food is ridiculously good!! I would never eat Chinese food from anywhere else after eating here! We pick up all the time when we don't have time to go in and eat or we know it will be busy. Any bad review of Peter Changs is given by an idiot or someone who does nothing but complain (we all... More

I eat here about once a week. The food is excellent. House Special Fish Fillet is a favorite. It is spicy. Also, you have to try the bubble pancake.

We went here on a suggestion from a friend. Upon arrival in a strip mall, I expected the normal Chinese food in a box. I was surprisingly mistaken. This place rocks. We had to make reservations on a Sunday and when we left the line was out the door. The food is very fresh and well prepared. Staff is friendly... More

We came here on a suggestion from friends who have dined here several times and advised the food was consistently good. Our experience was no different - the food was AMAZING! Don't let the modest location fool you (it's in a strip plaza), as the food is some of the best Chinese in the area. Menu is vast and all... More

We had picked Peter Chang's based on my first visit with 4 other couples. This time there were 6 of us on a Friday night. We had reservations and were immediately seated. I was very disappointed in the beverage selection, it was practically non existent, especially considering the Richmond metro area. Each couple ordered appetizers and we had the coriander... More

Last spring ordered takeout. Had excellent reports. Ordered gen'l t'so, veg lo neon, veg fried rice, egg rolls, sweet&sour soup. $38. Home and only egg rolls were acceptable. I called the restaurant the next day and asked for mr. Chang. "He's not in" he only comes by once a month at most. Asked next for manager. A lady came to... More
