Really liked forward to going here as I heard so much about it. The appetizers were wonderful. I especially enjoyed the soup dumplings which were divine! ! Or entries were very good, though if I must complain, way to much! ! I think next time will share an entrée. We were in early and the... read more

We had a 20+ minute wait even early in the evening on a weeknight. The food was good, served in very large portions; four people could easily split two dinners and get plenty to eat. Service was perfunctory at best - just droppin' the food and turnin' the table - which, along with the crowded noisy room, took away from... More

We have visited here multiple times. Always fresh ingredients, delightful combination of seasonings! Some of the dishes are extremely hot. But they have many mild dishes for those who don't like fire. Everything is delicious! Wonderful! We live 30 miles away, but we always drive up there at least once a month. It is always a treat, and always worth... More

First point, even though the address says West Broad, you cannot see it from the highway. Turn in to the Walmart parking lot and you will see it ahead. Second point, we advise getting there before 6:30, even on a weeknight. Third point, the food is spicey hot, be observant of the menus. Each dish has a "red pepper" rating... More

Such a well known place in Richmond area and I love this type of food. But on both trips the staff was not friendly...to the point of almost tossing the food on the table. The food did not come at the same time...so you wait for others in your party to get their food while yours gets cold. The food... More

Read all the rave reviews on TA and elsewhere and decided on Chang's for Friday evening dinner - busy as expected with a 20+ minute wait for table. Fairly noisy café style open room with bright lights, and reasonably quick service. Tried the 'signature' dry fried eggplant and vegetable spring rolls to start, and Shan city chicken. The rice to...

My readers know I'm not a 'gusher'. I have read many review of Peter Changs and wanted to visit for a while. Went with the Rochester fam over Memorial weekend. Short wait, Less than 20 min. Large and varied menu from the hot pot entrees to the chicken, fish and beef done in an assortment of dishes. I did a... 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
