I really liked the Dry Fried egg plant sticks - the menu describes them as stir-fried with Szechuan peppercorn and chili, scallions and cilantro. whatever makes it work, they're magic ! our server was delightful, knowledgeable abt the menu and really focused on us in a friendly helpful way when explaining the menu or serving . terrific.

This place is outstanding! Excellent wait staff and dishes I've never seen at other Chinese restaurants. The portions are more than generous, and you can order your food as spicy or as mild as you like. For the spicy food fans out there, I highly recommend the Schezuan Hot Pot.

Really good, really authentic and well-seasoned food! The menu is very comprehensive and seafood, lamb, chicken, beef, tofu, fish are well-represented and cooked in a variety of different styles. Little pepper icons indicate degree of hotness in the Schezwan styles. There are many soups, many clay pot dishes, many vegetarian dishes. We opted for dinner entrees of chicken and mushroom,...

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
