“Like Chinese food used to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2011

I remember going out to a chinese restaurant as a kid was an exotic experience. It would be a special treat. Now Chinese food has been watered down by all the sub-par dog-food buffets. I have eaten here several times and although the ambiance it somewhat lacking the food is what chinese food should be. Cooked to order. I found fired rice, the lo mein, the chicken and garlic sauce, Etc to be very tasty. Even the egg rolls reminded me of the tasty flavor packed dishes I remember. Try it you'll like it.

“Above average taste!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2010

I have been to Peking Restaurant a few times. Some of the food is catered towards the Chinese from China and some is catered for the locals in the vicinity. Although Chinese food taste different from around the world, I find Peking to offer some true authentic chinese. If you want some real chinese food, go to Hong Kong or Vancouver, BC. Otherwise Peking will do!

“Very Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2008

This restaurant was terrible. My husband and I were the only ones in the entire place (at around 5:30 on a Friday night) and our service was still sub-par. Not only that, but the food was disgusting. My husband's won-ton soup tasted like chicken broth, the lo-mein was swimming in grease, and the sesame chicken was hard, dry, and flavorless. I will never go back here.
