If you are looking for good Chinese food, at good value, this is a hidden gem, but hurry - the locals discovered it last month. Important things first - they don't use MSG. The owner is the chef and he is there every night. It's a family affair, his wife Margaret and sister-in-law Jennifer will get to know you fast... More

The new management has been in place for over a year, and they really know how to make and serve good Chinese food. Not a very big place, but the orders are quick. Good food to go, too!

My husband and I have been going here religiously ever since Margaret and her husband took over the restaurant. The food is wonderful, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. We've been happy with everything we've ordered. My favorite dishes so far have been anything with noodles in them. My favorite meals are those Margaret comes up with when I... More

(The secret is out), I have lived in Ventura forever and yet I had no idea about Peking Restaurant. I came on Thanksgiving eve and came again three days later and my suspicions were confirmed. Hands down this is the best Chinese restaurant in Ventura. You walk in and the greeting area is semi blocked off from the rest of... More

I dine at Peking once a week when I pass through Ventura. A new owner-operator named Margaret and her husband who have years of experience running Chinese restaurants in LA took over The Peking recently. They did a complete refurbish, including bathroom, booths and decor. Their food is of great value and quality for the price. They pretty much kept... More

I ordered delivery for 14 people. The orders were all correct when delivered, the portions were more than enough, and the prices were so great (approx.$5.95 per person). We ordered the lunch specials which came with soup, steamed or fried rice, and the entree. Everyone Their customer service was really good. I would definitely order from them again.

I ordered take out for 12. Other than the fortune cookies and soup there wasn't enough for 8. The salad for 12 was a little bigger than a jack-in -the box side salad. I can accept being hungry an hour later, but not having people leave the table hungry. My friend who recommended the place apologized and admitted she hadn't... More

I eat here all the time. I love the spicy orange chicken an beef with brocolii. The owner knows me and he is very friendly! I take my friends to lunch here all the time because it's just too good. I highly recommend eating here when you are in the mood for good chinese food.

The main dishes are good, I usually get the shrimp w/ lobster sauce, lunch special. Have only been here for lunch. The decor leaves much to be desired, it is a little dark. Service is good though. The lunch special comes w/ choice of fried or white rice but the fried rice is not really the traditional fried rice as... More
