We needed to be somewhere early and the restaurant was near our hotel. There were remarks by others about the service not being great. We decided from their online menu what we would have before we arrived. The food was good, the portions large, and everything was brought out fresh and quickly. We had no problem with the service. If we are in the area again we would definitely return.

We tried Peony out approx a year ago, and eat here almost every time we get a night away from the kids. It is absolutely amazing, and DELICIOUS! The prices are great, food is great, and the staff is great...their sushi is just WOW....we have ordered the $50 sushi plate several times...it's huge! We split it between the two of us, and you get a great variety of delicious rolls. We love this place!!

The family discovered Peony Asian Bistro shortly after it opened several years ago and we were immediately appreciative of their take on asian cuisine. The menu is pan asian with representative dishes from Thailand and Japan to China and Singapore. My kids and the wife really enjoy going there for sushi as their sushi rolls have always been buy one get one free, enabling them for $5-$8 to get a couple of different rolls each. Other items on their menu are really excellent such as their Sesame Chicken. They have recently added bento boxes wheich not only look neat but offer a nice variety of menu items to choose from. Definitely a keeper as a regular haunt!!

My friends and I consider Peony to be one of our "go to" options when we are considering a get together. We have always appreciated the great service provided by the restaurant team. They remember us and take great care of us each visit.

The restaurant is located in a shopping center and the atmosphere is relatively standard. Nothing special about the setting.

The food is quite good. We often get sushi, but the non-sushi options are always good as well. My personal favorite is the Lion King roll which sometimes arrives at my table without me even having to order it! The sushi is all buy one/get one so that helps keep the costs always reasonable.

The restaurant is well known -- there is always a small crowd whenever we go. (We may visit anytime throughout the week.) However, it is never loud or crowded to the point you won't be seated immediately.

Often we mention Peony before any other choices even are discussed. A sign of how we all appreciate our good experiences there time after time.
