“Best Chinese and Asian food in Egypt”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This a small cosi restaurant with nice atmosphere and excellent Chinese and Asian food. It is one of the branches of this largest chain of restaurants in Cairo, Sharm El Sheikh and Marina. An excellent value for money. An average of USD 10,- per person without beverage is a approximate figure. In most of the Peking branches, alcoholic beverages is served

“Don't”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Peking is owned by a half Chinese half Egyptian man who inherited the business from his late Chinese father who had obviously married an Egyptian woman and settled in Egypt. He unfortunately did not carry the quality food legacy of Peking that in the late 70's early 90's was perhaps the first Chinese Restaurant to open its doors in Egypt. The son managed to open a few branches at the expense of quality and consistence. Therefore, I would not at all recommend to even try out this chain which claims to be serve Chinese food. I do not believe it is even an attempt. Food quality, and hygiene are surely not at all impressive and therefore, the title of my review being: Don't.

“Nice food and atmosphere”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I'm a regular customer there, the food is really nice, the ambiance and music really suits the place and the staff is friendly. Based on experts opinions this is not really Chinese food , however I still think it's delicious :)
