My 3rd time to dine here with my family after a few years, but one cannot enjoy any eating experience when the serving staff is arrogantly noisy just like they own the place. Reminds me of a similar Kebab place in Timog where the servers are arrogant & so confident of their job security!
They were discussing issues they probably heard on tv, ignoring the calls of customers, while others are using the restaurant's wifi openly while on-duty, fuelling more topics to their own sickening & uncalled for noisy discussions.
One female server also opens the plastic pouch where they place the take-away orders by BLOWING IT WITH HER OWN BREATH, then giggly laughs loudly every time she does it - so disgusting & unhygienic!
Where are the owners or managers? Why do they let their employees ruin whatever left of the ambience & business future of the place? There are plenty more deserving job applicants who can replace especially the one who maliciously exhales her breath on the take-out order plastic pouches! EEEEWWW!
WOULD NEVER EAT HERE EVER AGAIN!

Oh, how I just love the food of Mr. Peter Lee's.
I cannot resist the shark's fin and my all time favorite: Pansit Bihon...
Where else you want to go for authentic chinese food...try eating with your friends and family at Peter Lee's so you would experience it for yourself. Superb.

I suddenly craved for stir-fried noodles and decided to try it here. Their Pancit canton was okay, but Ramon Lee and Mann Hann tastes better. Hototai soup was good, and fresh. I ordered fried chicken but sadly it was dry and was a dissapointment.
If you're looking for old-fashioned Tea house food, then this is a good choice. Food is quite good and service was fast. Best of all their prices will make up for any food you may not find tasty. :)
