“The Chinese is Typical, Their Seafood is Outstanding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Lot's of negative comments below, but if you pick your visit time carefully and like seafood, you're going to love this place.

WHEN TO GO: Go for lunch. The price hovers around $10 and if you arrive 11:30'ish or a little earlier, there's plenty of everything.

WHEN NOT TO GO: Dinner. Price is significantly higher for the same fare. Additionally, while you stand in the typical nearly "out the door" line, there is a constant stream of Asian folk that are somehow allowed to cut the line and proceed directly to the buffet. I think what goes on, is that one person comes early and pre-pays for many, so when the others arrive, they go right to the head of the line during the most crowded times of the evening. On our visits here, we no longer go to Peter Pan during the evening due to this practice being allowed by the management.

THE FOOD: As I said above, the prepared Chinese buffet fare is typical, but Peter Pan has a fresh vegatable and fruit station, plus they will prepare a hot pot meal while you wait. They also have a sushi station that produces fresh non-fancy sushi rolls (tuna, salmon rolls, etc).

The seafood stands out; no question. Shrimp, crab, fish and more. Great stuff.

“The food is NOT fresh.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

The food is not fresh. Sometimes you don't know it cuz it was covered up by salt and oil and MSG. Then you ail know it when your stomach got hurt and have to go to bathroom. Its horrible. GOV(food safety) should go there check it out.

“typical Chinese buffet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Have tried nearly all the dishes at their buffet at one time or another, none stand out as especially tasty. Very mediocre Chinese fare.

“Good if you like seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

I submitted a long review previously which was, for some reason, deleted. So - I'll try again, but will keep it short this time.
Don't listen to "nattering nabobs of negativity" here. Buffets in NoVa get "bad rap" that they do not deserve, and Peter Pan in particular.

They are surely not upscale, but what they lack in decor and high-brow service, they make up in amazing variety of seafood. Crabs, fish, shrimp, squid and all sorts of other sea creatures prepared in traditional Hong Kong style, and quite tasty.

“Don't waste your time and money!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2011

I went there with friends yesterday, and what a disappointment! The services were horrible...the waitresses don't smile and services were slow. The buffet attendants look hostile! The food is terrible. I will never go there again!
