“Reliable and first-rate, healthy Chinese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We've been going to the Peking Garden for many years. It's a very attractive place with a koi pond and several fountains - a peaceful place for a good meal. The menu is health-conscious with a good array of vegetarian choices, brown ice as an option, and no msg in the cooking. We try to go once a week or so and always leave satisfied.

“Declining”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

The last two times we visited the food was clearly not as good as it used to be.
I always get the same dish so I have something to compare each visit to. One time is was nearly inedible and last night it had no flavor at all. The person who showed us to our table just threw the menus down and walked away. If we weren't with out of town guests we would have walked out then and there. The waitress was pleasant but she didn't have the language down very well and she needs to tweak her waitressing skills.
Sad to say but we're looking for another Chinese restaurant.

“One of the best in raleigh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Very good for Raleigh chinese standards ( which are a little low compared to bigger cities like NYC and the like). It's probably also one of the best for eating in. It's a cute little place with an indoor koi pond and at least some attempt at decor (unlike most of the Chinese restaurants in he area). The thai dishes aren't very good - stick to the Chinese. Peking duck is good. Orange peel beef as well is a standout ( though it's not on the menu they do make it if you ask).

“Probably the Best Chinese in Raleigh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

I've been eating here for more than 10 years and it is where I always bring visitors for a good dinner.

Especially good are Cumin Beef and Ginger Lamb.

The scallion pancakes are one of my favorites as well.

They also deliver to the local area and we like to order in quite a lot...

“Horrible food and would not return”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

My wife and I decided to revisit this Chinese restaurant to see if things were any better than our last visit. After a long unjustifiable wait for service I ordered Peking Duck and my wife ordered a chicken dish. The chicken tasted that it was microwaved and my duck lacked the classic charateristics of a quality product. The pancakes were cold and store bought. The duck skin was not crisp and the duck meat was flavorless. All in all the food was terrible. As to the service, our server spoke little English and could not answer questions about the food. She seemed to be indiferent to our complaints about the quality of the food though she agreed the duck was not what it should have been. With slow service and bad food I would urge others to avoid this establishment.
