“Good food- very good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

I visited Pekin Zahala now for the 2 nd time. It is a good place, with good food and excellent service.
As an entree I shared a superb chinese "Ramen Tom Yam" soup, with a friend.The soup contains cocanut milk,mushrums,onions,hot pepper, shrimps and noodles. The portion was very large, almost too large for one person.Delicious.
For the main course, I ordered poultry with cashew nuts. good, but unfortunately served not warm enough. so was the rice- not warm enough.
Coffee was just OK.
My suggestion:when you visit Pekin restaurant, always ask the waiter for a very warm meal. I did so before ordering the soup, which indeed was served at the right temperature.
Prices are very reasonable
Service was friendly and prompt.
Toilets- clean, but need refurbishment.
All in all- good place, good food. could be excellent with some efforts by the chef.

we ate there a croup of 6. Noone liked the food. Only reasonable dish was the shrimps in hot sauce. Too pricey.

“Pekin is fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Here you will find chineses, vietnamese, japanese and everything is just delicious.
We like slightly spicy so our favorite dishes are the hot & sour soup and the beef with eggplants. We always also love the cashew chicken and the Pad-Thai .
But for your information, everything is delicious and the great thing about this restaurant is that it is always good and we have been coming only for the past 20 years!
They are open daily from 11:30-23:00.
