We were told by several people how good this place was. So in Summer 2013 we went. Staff was pretty much not concerned about the customers, food was just ok, price was a little high, and the place stunk as if something burned in the kitchen. Not a good experience. So we went back in January 2015 thinking we just... More

This place is in a strip mall in the middle of nowhere. The space is a typical Chinese restaurant with open seating at round tables. That is the only thing typical about this place. I went based on reviews about the chef and the food exceeded my expectations. Everything was fresh (not always a given at some Chinese restaurants!) the... More

It was good, but it wasn't "all that", and it definitely wasn't worth the cost. $60 for two people (1 appetizer, 2 soups, 2 entrees, and 2 drinks). The schezuan bang bang shrimp was really good, as was the wonton soup (much less salty than most, and the meat in the wontons was obviously high quality), but both my and... More

Heard this place was a "must go" destination... Was kinda disappointed. I know they use good quality meat, etc but it was so so. Nothing too special. Got an appetizer, soup, general Taos chicken and Hunan beef. My sister and I were expecting something really really amazing. It was good but nothing special in my opinion.

After reading the New York Times review on Peter Chang, I was eager to try one of his places and recently had a chance to eat at this location. We lucked out as Mr. Chang was in residence that evening. The hype is true. Mind blowing food, the best stuff is VERY spicy but every dish was exceptional. Don't miss... More

We were in town visiting family and decided to have a night out at Peter Chang's. We made reservations, which turned out to be necessary judging from the crowd standing around at the entrance. We were seated immediately and while walking to our table, spotted several tables with the bubble pancakes. Ok, haven't seen the menu, but THAT was a... More

Have been wanting to go to Peter Chang's for awhile based upon the buzz that we have heard. Finally managed to go there with my wife and 2 couples who are great friends of ours. The place sits in a strip mall and is nothing special in terms of decor; however, the food is dynamite. We shared appetizers and 6... More

Easily the best chinese restaurant in Richmond. Food is authentic chinese so don't expect beef and broccoli or sweet and sour pork. Chef uses liberal amounts of spices so pay attention to the peppers on the menu. Notable dishes are the scallion bubble pancakes, dry fried eggplant, bamboo fish, and the hot and numbing hot pot.

When Peter Changs opened a few years ago ,the hype was amazing. The local newspaper food critic get rave reviews and a 4 star rating. My wife and I enjoy Chinese food very much. (We have a couple of favorites that are very good). We finally made it over to Peter Changs to give it a try. I knew it... More
