One of the best Chinese restaurants I have ever tried. The menu is very rich. Everything we've ordered was very tasty. The service is fast.

We ordered 5 dishes (Lo Mein, Chicken & Mushrooms, Bamboo Fish, Braised Seafood, Tendon and Tripe) and EVERYTHING was WAY TOO SALTY. Also #65 "Braised Seafood", a $20 dish was terrible. They just dump one of those Korean red pepper paste on seafood. Manager did give 10% discount but we're not going back to Peter Chang again.

People have been telling me for some time how great this place is for Chinese food and so I finally went. Maybe I'm spoiled with my experiences in New York, Hong Kong, and China but the build up definitely wasn't equal to the execution. To be fair, it's one visit so I'll go back again and try some different dishes.... More

If I were rating this restaurant on the food alone, I would have given it five points, but the odd service pulled it down. We were there for lunch shortly after opening hours, very few other people were there, so they weren't busy. We expected excellent food, as we have eaten here before. The lunch menu is a great value,... More

The service here is excellent 90% of the time. Servings are large-- we usually can get more than one meal out of entrees. Always a nice size crowd there. One of our favorite restaurants in Cville.

Had a wonderful dinner with the family. Ordered 2 appetizers and 3 main for 4 people and oh boy, they were too much. Portion was BIG. What ever you do, order Kung Pao chicken. They are the only one using asparagus in the dish. Chicken meat was tender and asparagus was awesome. Be careful as some dishes can be spicy.... More

I visited Peter Chang's with some friends and our overall experience was good. We arrived at the restaurant around 915PM because this place is usually packed, so you either go early and wait or arrive late... but this late arrival showed us the negative aspect of the service at the restaurant. Once we arrived and asked for a table, even... More

A large menu with some unusual dishes. Geared to western tastes but with some unusual aspects or ingredients such as lamb chops.

The menu was extensive and had a lot of dishes you won't find other places. I had the double cooked pork belly. Awesome. the fried eggplant appetizer was excellent. Was like being back in southwest China.

My wife and I had dinner at Peter Chang’s China Grill last week. It didn’t start out well. The hostess, after informing us we couldn‘t get a booth in the area we wanted, instead silently led us to a booth in another section of the restaurant. She dropped the menus on the table and walked away, again without a word.... More
