We arrived on Saturday night without booking, no tables were left. The staff very kindly offered to set up one for us in a space in restaurant, we had plenty of room. We ate starters, duck and mains, all tasty and great value. Service was good and the place although quite old fashioned has a nice atmosphere. Will return again soon.

We came along for a special birthday celebration. The food was excellent and many dishes were served with fresh vegetables. The service was friendly and efficient. We have come on many occasions and have always had a great evening. Although the restaurant entrance looks small there is easy access for wheelchair users and plenty of room at the tables. Children always made to feel welcome too.

We celebrated an 81st birthday on Friday and there were ten of us (four generations) and everyone had a terrific meal, enjoyed attentive and friendly service and had a truly wonderful evening. We have been coming to this restaurant for more years than I can remember and can honestly say it never fails to deliver on quality or service. Thank you to all of the team, you had one happy mum,nan and great nan at the end of the night!

Ate here with 2 friends and quite honestly ranks as one of my worst meals ever. The restaurant looks like hasn't been updated since they moved in in the 80s. It did seem quite clean tho.

Service was as efficient as you'd expect, but it was the food that made this experience horrendous. We all ordered different dishes for starters and mains, but they all tasted of nothing. I can't really explain it, two of us had a mixed starter with all the usual suspects, which were greasy and bland, only the texture gave away what it might have been.

Our mains not only looked bizarre (see photo) they delivered nothing. We didn't raise this with the restaurant as we were all starving and save leaving and going somewhere else, didn't see the point in complaining as is obviously standard fayre!

Don't really know what else to say except don't go if you want a meal you'll enjoy!

We live in the area and have taken away from and been to eat at the Peking Garden many times; several when we had booked to go elsewhere, but were disappointed by what we saw and found at these places. The Peking Garden never disappoints!

Our most recent visit was for our wedding anniversary and, as ever, the food was wonderful. Everything is beautifully cooked (you try stir frying steak and making it as tender as that) and there is a feeling of immaculate cleanliness. Decor is warm and welcoming and little touches like fresh flowers make all the difference to the nicely presented tables. David and his team are very friendly, knowledgeable and provide perfect service. The bill is moderate, considering all you are offered to eat - try the meals for 2,3, and 4. They are excellent value.

No doubt we shall return to the Peking Garden many times, not least, I expect, when other places have disappointed us!
