Sorry everyone.....I don't get it? I've been here twice. First time was good but expensive. The second time just average and more expensive. I simply can't justify the money with other choices in the west end.

You don't expect superior food in a Walmart strip center, but, at Peter Chang's, that is what you get. Looks like a typical suburban Chinese restaurant, not much in ambiance, so what should you expect? What you get is about the best Chinese food you will find in central Virginia and while the place is basically a plain package, it's... More

Peter Chang's is by far the best Chinese food in Richmond (and beyond) and is well worth the trek out to the Short Pump area. The blends of flavors and spices is absolutely amazing and will make other Chinese food seem just plain ordinary. I have loved everything I have tried here but some of the top choices that I... More

We were in the Richmond area for vacation with the in-laws who took us to Peter Chang's. My MIL raved about the place but we were a little concerned because the wifey doesn't really like Chinese food, plus we had the baby with us. What a surprise! Definitely the best Chinese food I've ever had. The scallion bubble pancake is... More

You don't go to this place for the setting (next to a Walmart), you don't go for convenience (in one of Richmond's suburbs), you go because you heard from no less than Calvin Trillin that the chef is THE Chinese chef of the moment. So you trek out to Glen Allen (aka Short Pump), VA, and enter a large, pastel... More

Definitely order the chicken lettuce wrap and the sesame chicken dishes, both are amazing! We also really liked the coriander fish rolls (freshly fried) and the steamed dumplings, which had thick skins but were filled with tender meat and yummy.

We live in Hong Kong and visited family here, who suggested Peter Chang's for lunch. Excellent choice - all fresh ingredients, diverse cuisine with many different Chinese and Asian touches. Outstanding lettuce wraps with chicken - so good our daughter ordered a second one for take out and dinner

Fabulous -best Chinese in Richmond by far! I was with a big table and we shared many appetizers and main dishes and every single one was excellent. However I'm not giving it five stars because the service was awkward and it wasn't the most comfortable dining experience.

We've gone here many times, taking relatives and out of town guests for a treat that they usually can't get where they live. Everyone from college students to seniors has enjoyed their options. Peter Chang travels to his new location, sets up the restaurant, cooking and supervising until it gets established, then moves on to the next location. We've eaten... More

This is an easy review to write. Peter Chang's is simply the best Chinese restaurant my husband and I have ever visited. It's like no other. We have been told it's as authentic as we will ever enjoy without going to China. Condiments are not placed on the tables - we are assuming the dishes are prepared / seasoned in... More
