Food was a bit pricey but so good. We had lettuce wraps, the golden mountain beef, and General Tso's Chicken. The beef was especially good.

I'm from north New Jersey and my dad used to work in Chinatown in city, and often took us to various restaurants for Chinese food and dim sum. That being said, I'm used to being disappointed when going to different Chinese restaurants in Virginia, with the huge exception of Peter Chang's. This is one of the hands down best Chinese... More

The food is really good and authentic. Its a little pricier than your standard Chinese food (takeout) place , but worth it and it's walking distance to Darden.

We have always enjoyed Peter Chang's food- this was third location we tried and it did not disappoint. Hot and numbing menu items are just that (the leftovers are even hotter the next day!) and the scallion pancakes are unique treats.

This was our 3rd time eating here, and each time it has been great food. I can't wait to go back to try something different. This is not your average Chinese restaurant. Check out their menu on line

This restaurant lived up to the five-star hype, introducing us to both provincial and city fare most of us have never been privileged to taste before. My only experience with comparable food was at a restaurant in New York staffed by master chefs and underwritten by the Chinese government. The decor is a bit shopworn, the booths oddly uncomfortable, but... More

Delicious offerings in a nice atmosphere. Not always the quietest place, but great food and good service.

Second time we have visited but first review. They have an extensive menu. I ordered beef with broccoli. It was a large portion of which about half I took home. My biggest complaint is that some of the beef was grisly and tough. They had beer and wine but unfortunately no draft beer which is a shame with all of... More

Some of the best Chinese food I have ever eaten, but I do have some concerns about the amount of MSG in the food. They have these big balloon breads which are not only spectacular to look at but also tasty. There was this eggplant dish with numbing spice which was just fantastic. Highly recommend this place.

We went here for a date night by the suggestion of many Cville locals. Told the food was super authentic and worth every bit! All of the food we ordered was sub-par... Leaning towards bad. We ordered spring rolls and they were filled with potato maybe? Was squishy and not a crunchy cabbage filling.. Also got the dumplings and they... More
