No Tacos for us on Tuesday

Lots of choices. Great atmosphere, not very intimate. The good was OMG spicy! It had a great flavor to it once I embraced the spice. A little warning on the spice would have been nice.

Three of us visited Peter Chang on a weekday night. The place was packed at 6pm. Fortunately, we had reservations but the restaurant was constantly abuzz with people arriving and leaving, groups clustering to wait in the doorway, waiters rushing around. This was our clue that this was not going to be a typical Chinese food experience. I found the... More

Peter Chang is an award winning chef and I expected his cafe to be fancy. It is not -- it looks and sounds like any other shopping center Chinese restaurant. Not elegant, to be sure, but the kung pao shrimp was delicious ... and the bargain lunch special comes with choice of soup, egg roll, and rice.

I give this place a one , after the appetizers, this place went straight downhill !! Service was very much lacking and so was the taste . If you go stop at the appetizers and you'll be satisfied . Otherwise stay away , no flavor and no visit back to the table , forget any condiments.. If you ask they... More

My family and I just moved here from El Paso and we did not have much luck finding a good Chinese restaurant while we were in El Paso. This was the first Chinese restaurant we tried in Glen Allen. We were very happy to find a very good one on our first try! We ordered the fried wontons. They had... More

We shared two appetizers; scallion pancakes, which were the best I have ever eaten, and dry fried eggplant, which was also delicious. We also shared two entrees, a chicken and a duck dish which were very well spiced but not too hot. A good, reasonably priced wine list.

I had two friends recommend this as the place to go in short pump area. Kinda wanted Cheesecake Factory but went here instead. Service was excellent. One dish can serve two easily. I had chicken and mushrooms and spring rolls. Food was excellent. Prices are very reasonable. I will be back.

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

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 service was very good, but... More
