I have visited Peter Chang restaurants dozens of times, occasionally with 8-10 people and never with a party of fewer than four. Last night was the first time I went there as one member of a party of two. Much as I have enjoyed in a major way sharing multiple dishes as part of a large group of people, I found last night to have been disappointing.

The strength of Peter Chang restaurants is the large variety of flavors and spices across a number of different dishes. This variety works well together, and less well in isolation. Last night, we shared two favorites -- Bang Bang Shrimp and Seafood in a Stone Pot. They were both excellent as usual. But, they left us longing for another Hot and Numbing Dish, and a Pork Belly Dish, and Noodles and Chinese Vegetables. In short, we were an insufficient party to enjoy the full range of the restaurant's offerings.

I can't wait to return with a large party. But, I think I'll go elsewhere when I'm part of a twosome. Cantonese cuisine lends itself better to a more contained dinner -- good food without leaving you pining for more.

This was my first time to this restaurant which is not affiliated with PF Chang, the franchise restaurant. I arrived after 8:00pm and found the place to be very empty. My waiter provided what had to be one of the toughest menus to find something I liked because it had a lot of fish and odd animal parts, so I figured this was authentic Chinese like I had never seen it before.

Eventually I ordered the Bang Bang shrimp appetizer ($10) which came with about 24 small coated shrimp, deep fried with sweet sauce, and the shredded Szechuan beef ($17) with onions. The shrimp were very good, and the beef was very tender but salty. It came mixed in with loads of onions and traces of scallions. It was a generous portion but very greasy. I was surprised they but a bottle of ice water on the table and never offered hot tea.

Our dishes ranged from very good to excellent. And plenty spicy. Particularly liked the appetizers of dry-fried eggplant and minced chicken. Service good. Ambience good (for a Chinese restaurant.)

Very uneven. Dumplings and Dan Dan noodles a disaster. Likely frozen dim sum from a bag. Chicken and veggie dishes hit higher marks. In all more hype than quality Chinese.
