Delicious Dim Sum, Pecan Shrimp, Shrimp Eggrolls..... I am still dreaming about them! We shared everything! Left stuffed and happy!

We were dying to return to indoor dining so we returned to this place as soon as it was allowed to open. The food was as good as we remembered. We had rice cake with seafood, salt and pepper chicken wings and some dim sum....The food is of very high quality and the portion generous. The seafood in the rice cake dish was fresh and cooked perfectly. Lastly, the food presentation is also very attractive. The wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive. It is by far the best Asian restaurant in downtown Bellevue. The parking is easy as well. All in all, this is a winner.More

We ate here for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious, including the vegetarian options. The number of vegetarian options were limited, but tasted good. Service was great. Will definitely go back for more.

This was not our first visit to Peony, nor will it be our last. The food here is consistent and the service is attentive with food and beverages served in a timely fashion. The Whole Five Spiced Crispy Duck is a must - reminiscent of...traditional Peking Duck but with a modern flair, it is a whole boneless duck served with thin pancakes, scallions, hoisin sauce and thin slices of roast lemon which add an extra flavourful dimension to this dish. The 5 flavoured pan fried pork buns are unique as well - original, seafood, cheese, mushroom, and squid ink renditions are found no where else that I’ve dined. The five flavoured beef, pork belly, sautéed broccolini and Peony’s chow fun nicely rounded out our dinner for the evening. For excellent Chinese food, don’t miss this destination!More

We went here for a group dinner. This is a modern-looking Chinese restaurant next to Bellevue Square. Great location. The dishes are pricey and the portion is small. Some entrees are good and some are not (orange chicken has too much orange taste, soup is...cold, garlic noodle is average). I have had better Chinese food before (Hong Kong, New York, Los Angeles, etc.). The thing that I don't like is the automatic adding of 18% gratuity to the total, regardless of how many people in the party or how the service is. This is not right as it may drive a bad service since there is no more motivation to provide a good one. I probably will not go to this restaurant anymore.More

Dined at the Peony Kitchen for the first time with friends. When we arrived, the hostess wasn't friendly and said without reservations, they may not accommodate us. We arrived at 4:30pm and the place was completely empty!!! We got seated and ordered drinks which were...happy hour prices. The kids all got their juices but they only filled half way in the kids' cups. We were shocked to find out that they were $4 each on the bill (then they should've filled all the way). They also didn't honor the happy hour prices for our drinks but we had already paid. So we talked them into getting free desserts instead, but the whole experience from the moment we entered was not a pleasant experience. We probably will not return to this restaurant!!More

We've now tried this restaurant twice while visiting Bellevue. Both times service was abysmally slow, the waitstaff seemed unconcerned and distracted and both times a dish we had ordered after a long wait never did arrive. Beware..there's an automatic gratuity added to each check. Maybe...that has something to do with the mediocre service. Regarding food quality, it's mediocre as well.More

This is authentic Chinese, not Americanized Chinese. Food is well prepared with lots of garlic. Service is slow without much effort.

- Rude service - Forced 18% gratuity - Bland food Has seafood with wild mushrooms for $30, there were mostly mushrooms and little seafood. Bartender was rude. Check for one dish with no rice and one beer was $50 with forced 18% gratuity. Stay away....Many bellevue restaurants are bad and overpriced, but this one is worst .More
