It's gotten nearly impossible to find a Chinese restaurant that has a menu rather than a buffet, but my Hubby saw this one here on Trip Advisor. We were in Chester with a friend who is working here and we decided to try it out. We all got different dishes made fo different meats and all our meals were quite... More

I've been going to Peking for 14 years and have never had to return a dish for any reason. Their portions are plentiful, flavorings are spot on, service is always fast and pleasant. The take-out customers and inside diners are sometimes forced to jockey for their place inside the front doors due to the lack of space up front. But... More

This is an old favorite that we had almost forgotten about. It was great to revisit this very special member of a Chinese cuisine chain. The hot and sour soup is impeccable and all the entree's are always dependably sumptuous. Great place!

The food was good. I've just never been to a Chinese restaurant that didn't offer mar far chicken. For me it's the ability to use that hot mustard. I love that stuff. It may be perfectly acceptable and normal for the area to not have mar far.....and at the end of the day they're just "chicken nuggets". The other difference... More

The food here is always good. I used to dine at the Peking Restaurant on Grove Ave. in Richmond but they closed down. I moved to Chester and was pleased to see that we have a Peking nearby. The food is consistent and the host and wait staff are always pleasant.

Have eaten here for years, whether it be for lunch or dinner, their food is fantastic. The Sunday brunch is probably my favorite.

I have been eating at Peking for several years and have come to appreciate the consistently good service and food. I am always welcomed in a genuine way and the food is always hot and delicious. We always have enough to take home for another meal. We have come to know the servers and the managers to the point that... More

This is the only Chinese restaurant where they make sweet and sour chicken like its suppose to be! Food is excellent and a great place for couples when they want an intimate setting.
