Once again Tripadvisor didn't let us down. On an overnight stay in Durham we both wanted Chinese and searched the listings and picked Peony. Great spot. Very friendly server, great food - steamed shrimp dumplings and scallion pancakes for apps and Happy Family for an entree satisfied our cravings. Will be back ib the future.

First visit the food was good. Second time it wasn't as good. The food is inconsistent. Some of the peas in my vegetable fried rice were still half frozen, while other vegetables were overcooked. They advertise they deliver but that too is inconsistent.

I really like their sushi which is all reasonably priced at buy one get one free and if you want to try a variety of things off their menu their bento box... More

After getting several mediocre Chinese meals from other places I thought I'd give this place a try. I was not disappointed, very tasty dishes and happy they have brown rice as an option without an extra charge. This is now my top Chinese place in the area.

We ordered a few dishes and a few rolls. I have to say they have fantastic walnut shrimp, however the sushi was not good and did not taste fresh. This is not the first time I have ordered sushi here and found it to be subpar and small. I had thought I had caught them at a bad time before... More

I found everything we ordered to be better than most Asian places we have eaten. Soup and dumplings were great. Beef Lo Mein excellent. Beef and Broccoli very yummy. The fried ice cream was quite a treat. And the service was very good.

Every time I get down to the Durham/Chapel Hill area, I make it a point to have my lunches, and if possible, my dinners at the Peony Asian Bistro. Their BOGO offer on sushi and sashimi is really good and the food is well made and tasty. I highly recommend the Peony Asian Bistro to anyone who enjoys Japanese food.

The good part was the vegetables were cooked perfectly, but that was all that was good. The food was extremely salty. We had lunch soecials. Mom had chicken and vegetables with hot and sour soup. I had tofu and vegetables with a vegetable spring roll. We both had brown rice. The rice was gummy, soup was slimy and spring roll... More

Had a nice date night trying a new "to use" place. Service was quick and helpful. Miso soup was very good and the sushi/ sashimi was really nice. We will be going back. Wife had the the Bento box which she really liked with a Kung Pao chicken. Quick review but to be honest that's all it needs. Sweet and... More
