My wife and I discovered this hidden treasure when we were first in Chico. The vegetarian meals were especially wonderful. The chinese eggplant was always beautifully prepared and delicious. It is a little difficult to find as the stairs down are hidden in a dark...corner of the building cove. The building is on the corner of 2nd st and salem, stairs in the face of the building facing 2nd st.More

Bad food, poor service. Disapointed in quality. Basement dinning. Have had better Chinese food in drive-thru places. Located near University.

Best in town. Atmosphere not the best but the food IS!! Personable, know customers by name. If you go away hungry it's your fault. Vegetables are always delicious, House Iron Plate is the best. Delivery is fast, and free. Two thumbs up!

I will eat here on occasion because its the cheapest Chinese Lunch in Downtown Chico, and if you feeling like Chinese it's the best bet if you want to get lunch for under $7. Location is bad, it's basically in a cellar, Definitely not a...place to take a date or a friend if your trying to impress them.More

My son recommended Peeking since he's eaten there many times and thought it was very good. Well, this time, we all got, um, digestive related problems after eating there. I had an appetizer platter and a big bowl of wonton noodle soup. Most of the...apps were fried. They shared a vegetarian dish and soup. The veg dish was also fried. Within 20 minutes, my son had to leave and the rest of us felt very bloated and, well I won't go into details. We took the leftovers with us, but they threw their's out. I ate the rest of the soup the next day, sort of as an experiment, and felt fine. So, the diagnosis was that it was the fried stuff that got us. The service was fine if a bit chilly and the portions were very large. We checked out what others were eating and everyone seemed to enjoy their meals - except perhaps when they got home.Prices are extremely reasonable. So maybe stay away from the fried dishes and stick to things that are cooked in broth.More

I love their soup! Hot & Sour is good, and the noodles are great, too! Ingredients are always fresh.

Plain and simple this is my favorite chinese food. We usually get it delivered and it is great every time. I will admit that the service isn't super friendly in the restaurant but it isn't that bad. Get it delivered people!

Those other people couldn't be any more wrong! The staff is friendly, the food is awesome. I guess you just have to appreciate chinese food in order to get the delicious experience that I get every time I visit.... which is like at least once...a month!!!!!!!!!!!!More
