The food is excellent, but for me the best of the best was the grilled dumplings, just wonderful.

The evening was somewhat spoiled by a noisy bunch of diners celebrating a birthday and one noisy woman's loud cackling in particular resounding through the restaurant.

The manager could have asked them to keep it down a bit, but other than that the service was good and friendly.

My husband and I ate here on Saturday night - we had booked a table for two on the previous Monday. When we arrived we were given the choice of 2 tables (1 table for 2 had already been taken) - both of the tables were on the main serving route. We picked the best one but spent the whole night getting our chairs bashed into as staff and diners walked past - this made me feel really sick. There are so many tables crammed in you feel like you are sitting with people on other tables! It is also very noisy because of this and we had trouble speaking to each other as we couldn't hear! The service was so quick we felt rushed; it really felt like the staff just wanted you in and out as fast as possible. We had only just sat down and they were asking what drinks we wanted! We were asked 3 times before we had actually decided. We had the Stella lager which was off - the manager was very good and didn't charge us for them but from what he said to us we thought he knew this lager was off and still served it although we can't be sure about that. We chose the set meal for 2 which was very good but again, rushed - not much time between courses. The food was very good although the crispy chilli beef is better at our local takeaway. We won't be back.

Just finished having dinner here and have to agree with previous comments. The food here is very good and really good value. All dishes we had were really nice and were good size portions. The problem with this place is the service. The staff forget what you have ordered and you then you and then you have to chase then so they remember. Our group who we were with received there drinks and then my wife and I were waiting for another 15 minutes before they realised that they had not given us out drinks and we had to speak to the owner. This was the same throughout the entire evening with our group constantly having to ask 5 times before we got what we ordered. I think this place would be great in the week when it is less busy but go at your own risk on a Friday and Saturday. The service really let's this place down and it is something that really needs addressing.

They also need to think about seating as the place is far too cramped and people are on top of each other waiting for a table. Overall great food but service needs to improve dramatically.

We have been going to Peking garden for years. Food is good and Kim provides personal service. However it does get noisy over weekends. All in all standards have been maintained.
