Dry fried eggplant is terrific, as is the dry fried green beans. Bamboo fish , House Soscial Fish hot pot, Hot and Numbing Variety Hot pot. The lamb chops are the best!! Remember this is a Chinese restaurant, so each person doesn't need to order one dish. You can share which makes it even better for more than 4 people.... More

The three of us enjoyed our meals very much. The service was friendly and portions large. Peter Changs is worth the price. My only disappointment was that my request to turn down the Chile spice to 1 Chile didn't happen. ..it was too spicy.

The dishes are pretty spicy, and I like spicy food. But, even the spice can not cover the low quality of the dishes they serve. Last time my fish was not even fresh, I couldn't touch it. The service is terrible. I travel a lot around the world. And this place its own special place in ranking of bad service.... More

This place is the real deal. It's not the gross buffet type, massive portion type of Chinese food place. It's almost a little off putting because it tastes different from what you are used to. But, overall, we loved the food. The shrimp we had as an appetizer was wonderful. If you are looking for better quality, different Chinese food,... More

Wonderful authentic Chinese food. I had the Kung Pao chicken -- which never disappoints -- though glancing at the General Tao's chicken at the next table I found myself musing about a half and half!! Next time!

Awful spring rolls. Some of the worst I've ever had. Mushy and greasy and bland. Supposedly it comes in frozen and not made here. Okra was killer. So good I nearly creamed my jeans Grandma noodles were good. Double cooked pig belly was fine.

I have dined here before, and enjoyed the innovative cuisine here. For various reasons, we had take out. Not the same experience. Usual crowd pleasers like the scallion pancake were flat, literally. Take the time, eat there, enjoy the food as it is intended.

My son talked us into going here since he said this was the most authentic Chinese food in the area. Didn't disappoint. Food was great and the server (George?) was spot on. I would recommend NOT sitting in a booth. I think they were picked up second hand at a restaurant auction, but you could definitely feel the people behind... More

Prior to scheduling our week-end trip to Richmond, I researched "top restaurants" in Richmond. Specifically, I was craving Chinese food. My searching led me to Peter Chang's and its "exceptional ratings." Well, guess what: there were no exaggerations about this incredible dining experience OK- there was a 15 minute wait but that was certainly understandable on a Saturday eve (... More
