Truly enjoyed dinner at Peking Pavilion. The service is attentive, the food is delicious, the place is always bustling and the ambience is very nice. The owner, Corinna, came by to our table to welcome us, too. Highly recommended.

We were in NJ visiting relatives and friends last week and we were lamenting that we went to an awful Chinese restaurant near my mother-in-law's house. Our friends told us the place we need to try is Peking Pavilion. We had passed it several times while driving Route 33. Our friends said it was upscale Chinese food. We were still... More

I have been going to this restaurant since they opened. I find it to be the best Chinese Restaurant in the State. It is a gourmet restaurant with unparalleled equivalent . The best food and atmosphere you can find. Once you try it you will be back again.

To call Peking Pavilion an upscale Chinese restaurant is wrong and unfair. It actually is an upscale restaurant that happens to specialize in Chinese food. You notice the difference immediately upon walking through the door. The restaurant is very cool and the vibe is very hot. It is managed admirably by Corinne and Steve who not only greet every visitor... More

Great Chinese food. We usually sit at the bar and eat. Moon and Jackson are super people very pleasant and great service. Love their pan fried port dumplings. Also any chicken dish is just delicious. They use organic chicken which is just awesome. This is also a great place for steaks. Their meats are first class. We have never had... More

Peking Pavilion is not just great chinese food, but great overall restaurant experience in the area. Service always top notch. Chicken Imperial and Steak dishes are favorite. Filet mignon egg rolls and chicken wraps are best apps. Bar area nice scene as well.

Wonderful place to have either lunch or dinner. Wait staff cannot do enough for you. They have a very good lunch menu and a great value. Beautiful surroundings just add to the experience. The pineapple chicken is delis and I hear that the deep fried fish is to die for... enough for two people.

Great food! The seafood was so fresh. Service was friendly and attentive but did not rush us at all. One of our favorites!
