Stopped in with my mother after a morning of office visits. As it was the lunchtime crush I expected a wait but was pleasantly surprised at how fast our orders were fulfilled. The chicken fried rice was tasty and their serving size was very bountiful; so much so my mother had enough to have again for another meal. The chicken was tender and the rice was perfect. The other lunch size meal was their feature item, General Tso’s Chicken. An excellent choice that was served piping hot with a side bowl of white rice. Their Tso’s seasons was spot on and the fresh rough chop green peppers added a nice sweet fresh green pepper taste.

Real fried rice, you can order dishes with sauce in the side. Mongolian beef is good so is egg drop and general Tao tofu or chicken. My go to for delivery after rice and noodle slipped down.

We've been taking out from here seven years. Food reliably good and fairly priced. Crispy beef exceptional, and they give you a free order of dumplings when you spend more than $30.

Our family had a taste for some good Chinese food. We are new to the Vienna, VA, area, so checked Tripadvisor for some recommendations. We ordered 5 dinners for our family so we could share and sample an assortment of dishes. We tried the Sesame chicken, Mongolian Beef, Cashew Nut Chicken, and Kung Pao Chicken. Those are dishes that are our usual favorites when we eat Chinese cuisine. The Sesame Chicken was fairly good, slightly sweet and lots of good chicken. The Mongolian Beef was the next best, although there seemed to be very little beef compared to all the onions. This dish could have used a lot more flavor. It was really too delicately seasoned so missed the usual sweet/savory combination of flavors that are a hallmark of well-prepared Mongolian Beef. The Kung Pao Chicken is my husband's "go to" Chinese dish--lots of nice meat and veggies, plus chili peppers and plenty of spice, and the nice crunch of peanuts. This Kung Pao Chicken did not have any "pow"--it had no spiciness to it, no heat, and so my husband was very disappointed. Finally, the Cashew Nut chicken, which so often has a very savory brown sauce with plenty of chicken, veggies and delightful cashews, also missed on so many levels. The sauce was almost a tomato base sauce--reddish, a bit tangy (hence the impression of tomato sauce) but mostly a very bland entree. We tried adding soy sauce, but that did not help. Cashews were soft, and it is much nicer to have the contrast of crunchy nuts with the soft chicken. Perhaps folks around here have gotten used to such bland fare, which is sad. Stir fry is a simple method of cooking. Foods should not be soggy and overcooked. But it is the savory sauces that make the dishes and we feel that Peking Kitchen has missed the mark in that area. We cannot recommend this restaurant and will not eat here again.

I am not a big fan of Chinese food, however they have a pretty good four seasons chicken dish. They had decent prices and people order out a lot here so it is not really a restaurant.
