We visit Peter Chang's whenever we get a chance. Love the Dry Fried Eggplant and the Hot and Numbing Seafood Pot!

First time at this restaurant although one of the diners had been here for lunch and said the place was always packed. It was packed for dinner the evening we were there as well - always a good sign. While we were waiting, we asked some of the other patrons who were also waiting what some of the favorites on... More

Waitstaff knowledgable about what's in the dishes to help vegans choose appropriately. Nicely flavored and not overlooked veggies. Lunch service impressively quick.

Until today, Lichi Garden in SF (Broadway and Powell) was my favorite Chinese restaurant. Peter Chang's is easily there now, too. Don't let the nondescript strip mall location cool you, as you're in for a real treat! Make sure to try the cilantro fish rolls and dry fried eggplant for starters.

As usual, a great meal. Highlights: the fried specialties of the house, wonderful dishes that we periodically find ourselves deeply craving --exquisite Dry Fried Eggplant and ethereal Bamboo Flounder Fish (cumin has never tasted as explosive and satisfying). We also enjoyed a special of Pork Belly with Green Apple. On the other hand, I am still mystified as to why... More

Took my sister and brother in law with us for my husband's birthday. Had seen the restaurant on Andrew Zimmern's show. Did not disappoint. Favorites were the dry fried eggplant, and the bubble pancakes. Every dish we had was great. We had 5 appetizers and 4 entrees. Wonderful food, great service, and lots of fun. Definitely will return when in... More

After hearing about this legendary chef for years, we finally had the opportunity to experice the genius of Peter Chang, who served as head chef at the Chinese Embassy, then opened a series of restaurants from which he would then mysteriously disappear. Check out the story about him in The New Yorker. We weren't disappointed, even limited to the vegetarian... More

This place offers authentic Chinese food. No General Tsaos chicken or sweet n sour sauce here. Extensive menu (vegetarian, chicken/beef, pigs feet, seafood, lamb,duck etc) with English language descriptions beneath non English... Hot fresh dishes, served fast! A feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Try the bubble pancakes or one of the Hot and Numbing dishes. The... More

We have been to dinner here several times as a couple and the food has always been exceptional. The only downside is when we eat at any other Asian place it never compares the level and quality that we get here. It is a little more expensive than some of the other Chinese places but as they say you really... More

We took a group to Peter Chang's on a Friday night. We sat at one of the large round tables with a lazy Susan. Great appetizers and great entrees. Don't miss the bubble pancakes or the dry fried eggplant. Yummy! The atmosphere isn't great - bright and loud. But I was impressed to see the diversity of people eating there.... More
