“It was good”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Beautiful décor and pleasant atmosphere. My husband and I waited at the bar for 15 minutes for our table but the ice cold beer made the wait pleasant. We ordered the CHI DINNER for two for $24 per person. Nothing special about the appetizers, we can get the same quality of vegetable spring roll for less at Panda Express, better chicken wings at Buffalo Wild wings, and the crab Rangoon was ok mostly deep fried wonton. We had the Sautéed Prawns with Spicy Szechuan sauce, not spicy at all, tasted like sweet and sour shrimp. We also ordered the Spicy Pepper Salt shrimp, it was neither spicy, pepper or salt tasting. It was battered shrimp that had a slight sweet taste to it. For dessert I had the mango gelato, it tasted like perfume, my husbands coconut gelato was good, had little pieces of coconut thru out. The waitress was nice but took a long time for our second beers…..not ice cold this time. The Maitre'd showed up to our table said hi and bye, it seem like he was in a hurry, he did it at all the tables, same saying at every table. For the meal and four beers we paid $79.00. It was ok food but way over priced for what we got. I wouldn’t go back or recommend it

“Very nice”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Went late Friday after arriving in Reno. We got the Chi diner special with Sautéed Prawns with
Spicy Szechuan Sauce and Spicy Pepper Salt Shrimp. Both were very good but I would try something different if we returned.

“China Delight !”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

We live in San Jose, California and there are Asian restaurants galore here in the Bay Area. Chi "in the Peppermill Casino in Reno" is our favorite Chinese food restaurant ! The food is great every time and is very delicious. The food is very fresh and vibrant. We have tried at least 10 different items off their menu and all have been excellent. The decor is upscale and is overall a very nice restaurant. The best part is that it is in the casino and attire isn't really scrutinized. You may dress in a tux to a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops. Very relaxed atmosphere and the service staff is excellent, friendly, and accommodating. I label this restaurant as a must dine ! We eat here every time we stay at the Peppermill. This place is great for all occasions. You can have a romantic dinner for two, family gathering, business dinner/lunch, boys/girls night out, or just come to have a great Chinese food dining experience.

“Food below expectation”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I was excited about eating dinner at Chi, but my Mongolian beef was over salted and didn't have the flavors I would expect in an upscale place like Chi. Maybe, some of the other entrees are better. Worth a try, for sure.

“Best Sushi in the Desert”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Truly, a pleasant surprise. everything on the menu is top end, but at a reasonable price. Located within the casino and near the sports book area, easy to get to even if not staying at the hotel.
