The food was amazing and the service was of a very high standard. The minced chicken dumplings are seriously delicious... I can't wait to come... More

Fantastic family meal again. Adi and his staff looked after us brilliantly and provided a fantastic meal at a superb price for us all. I took my cousin one arrived from Tanzania and we all enjoy the atmosphere and food. Definitely the best Chinese restaurant in Leicester.

We had been going to Peking for many years and last year we went and the food was not as normal. We thought maybe the usual chef wasn't available. A few people we know regularly went to Peking and were disappointed as we were. However, I am glad to say that our recent visit I was very surprised and extremely... More

We were probably the only English in the restaurant. Other guests were Chinese, always a good sign that the food is well liked. The service was outstanding. Waiters very attentive and the older gentleman came and shook our hands and welcomed us in. Opted for the £17.50 set menu that was exceptional. Duck pancakes the best I have had. Very... More

Just love this place. The 3 course lunch deal for under £8 is unbeatable (available until 18.30!) The food is fresh, plentiful and delicious. Lots of vegetarian options. Super lovely staff - welcoming, warm, efficient. Highly recommended.
