We went here based on the reviews. The restaurant is in a beautiful old hotel but the food was disappointing. The shrimp dish my husband had had plenty of shrimp but was overloaded with frozen peas and virtually tasteless. The noodle and vegetable dish I had was low on different types of vegetables and virtually tasteless. We asked for chili... More

The Peking has great food, hands down. But what I love most about this place is their bar area. They have a wonderful staff that mixes up classic cocktails set against a historic back-drop. The restaurant is located inside the former Landmark Hotel in Wausau. Back in its prime, travelers from all over the world would flock to the nearby... More

I had never been to Peking until this visit and I was very pleased. We were celebrating a birthday and anniversary and wanted to go somewhere new - what a great choice! We had a reservation - that I made online (very convenient). Both servers we had were very friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and attentive (nice job Allen &... More

There is a fairly large amount of Asians in Wisconsin and some have them have chosen to go into the food industry. The VAST majority that I've been to: Chinese, Tai, Korean, Vietnamese, etc have been excellent. Peking is the best so far in part because of the ambience. It is in the Landmark Hotel in downtown Wausau; a beautifully... More

I've been to Peking several times over the years, and am never disappointed. Its great Chinese food in a very nice restaurant. I enjoy the throwback vibe of this classic old hotel. Will always make a visit whenever in town and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Super friendly staff as well.

I have been dining at the Peking Restaurant since it opened. Most of my dining is for lunch, but I have enjoyed evening meals both dining in and taking out. The food is excellent. Local companies hosting visitors from Asian countries bring their guests to the Peking, to very positive reviews. As an aside, the mixed drink and wine serving... More

This is a place where you can get a quick oriental lunch that can't be beat, The lunch menu is somewhat limited which allows you to get in and out as quick as you may need. If you want to take a leisurely lunch, that is fine too.

What a beautiful atmosphere here! We were told that the main dining area was a ballroom from the 1920's. The food was great, although we didn't get too adventurous in our ordering (3/4 of us had some type of fried rice for our meal!). We had made reservations for 7:30 and were seated promptly. A few disappointments we had: upon... More

Chinese at its best, a must try if you are a fan!!!!! The dinning room has been maintained to hold the true value of what I believe used to be an old ballroom. They will typically have a piano player, playing in the corner of the dinning room which is enjoyable. They have fantastic wines and spirits to choose from,... More
