if you want authentic Chinese food - this is the place. Located in a strip mall, a short drive from downtown Richmond, it is easy to find as the line was out the door on Saturday night. This is a very causal place, great food, large portions, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Peter Chang is opening a number of restaurants in... More

This was our first visit at Peter Chang's. Located in a Wal-Mart plaza area. Very clean and comfortable inside. Service was great. I had the Shredded Duck and it was amazing. The amount you get is enough for two people. We also had the Lo-Mein noodles and they were some of the best I have ever had. I can't wait... More

Do not judge a book by its cover. Peter Chang's may appear unassuming based upon the location, but the location is not what is served on your plate. The food is consistently delicious and full of spice and flavor. A favorite place to enjoy amazing cuisine. Don't miss the dry fried eggplant and dry fried green beans. Superb!

6 of us. Had a couple fantastic entrees: the duck and eggplant/chicken in garlic sauce. All the others were very good but those two were particularly outstanding, especially the duck. Serving size is large. We ordered 6 entrees. 4, perhaps even 3, would have been more than sufficient. Reservations the Sunday nite we were there were essential. Server was excellent... More

What Peter Chang's lacks in ambiance, it makes up for in taste. As Richmonders know, here you can get good food in a strip mall. Service is good, and the food is consistent. One must try the scallion pancake appetizer; it arrives at the table looking almost like a volley ball! This restaurant never disappoints.

I was visiting an old friend in Richmond and she suggested we eat at her nearby Chinese restaurant. As we pulled into a small strip mall, I had no idea of the treat in store. Although the food is very spicy and authentic, dishes with a pepper symbol can be ordered mild. I loved the sweet and sour pork which... More

This place came recommended by my boss who is really into authentic Chinese food. This place definitely had some of the best Chinese food I've ever had. Of all the items I had here, I HIGHLY recommend the appetizer dish with the chicken that comes in a netted cone. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of it but it is... More

Very busy place so have a reservation. The interior is Asian themed (who knew right) and the seating was cramped to accommodate more tables and chairs. They bring out this puffed pull apart bread with a curry tasting sauce that was amazing. I ordered the fried rice with shrimp and pork and it tasted perfect. I also tried the golden... More

Peter Chang's has Chinese food. Note that the food tends to be very spicy, though they will make a milder dish on request; note also that the restaurant is quite expensive. Recommended for the adventurous and 'nice' occasions. Service is very good.

Our first visit to Peter Chang's was very good. So good, in fact, that when we again visited family in Richmond several months later, we eagerly anticipated another meal there. On our 2nd visit, we were a party of 4 couples. My husband and I had been only once before. The other three couples live in Richmond and had been... More
