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

I have yet to find what people rave about. I thought the food was mediocre. We ordered 6 or 7 dishes and the eggplant was delicious - the rest did not impress us.

I've been meaning to review Peter Changs for a while now. I have been many...many times...at this point, probably 30 + times. The food at Chang's is always very good. Sometimes spectacular other times just good. First thing you need to know is this...do not order items that you will typically find at your neighborhood chinese take-out. I believe they... More

From all of the positive reviews, I thought I was in for a treat. Not so. This place charges a premium for average Chinese food. The wonton soup was nothing special. The sesame chicken for some reason had sweet and sour sauce on it. The chicken was tough and bland. The place was crowded for some reason and noisy. Save... More

Richmond's restaurant scene is full of hype. For some reason this restaurant is one of the more hyped Chinese establishments. The food does not match the chatter, however. The dining space is one large, noisy, overly lit room that is unpleasant to sit in, let alone eat in. The Sesame Chicken and Golden Mountain Chicken were both stringy and dry,... More

My wife and I went to Peter Chang's 2 or 3 times shortly after they opened. The cuisine then was well above other Chinese restaurants in town....but, not now. We went there last night and found little to differentiate it from other Chinese restaurants in the area. The menu was all too similar and the preparation too. The restaurant was... More
