Ordered the combination plates on special, which were reasonably priced. However the taste was very bland and the chicken balls were 90% batter and what little meat was in them was terrible. The Cantonese Chow Mein was overpriced and at over $15 was dry and lacked meat and heavy on the soy sauce. Overall, the meal was a huge disappointment... More

Food and service not what it used to be 30 years ago! Back then, the Peking was a true treat for anyone who went. Food was awesome and so was the service. Not now! On our last trip there, when paying the owner's son asked us 'how'd you like it'. I said "do you want me to be honest or... More

30 years is a long time. Peoples tastes have changed most look for healthier options no msg ,gluten free or low sodium. We try to accommodate everyone unfortunately omitting these ingredients alters the taste for some. More

The food here is not as good as it was several years ago.Vegetables are not as fresh and seafood appears to be mostly from frozen. Loses a lot of flavor when frozen.

Sorry you felt our food was not up to par, unfortunately Sydney does not have a fresh seafood so our lobster and shrimp do come in frozen. More

One of our favorite spots to eat in Sydney. Always good food. Find that portions have gotten smaller.

I was in the mood for Chinese food and happened to see this restaurant. The menu is standard, with an emphasis on chicken fried rice. The staff did not acknowledge me when I walked in and only talked to me after I went up to the front desk. I ordered pork fried rice to go. The taste was below average... More

This is one of the best Chinese Restaurant I have visited. The staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. The asterics are very good, the food is served in a timely manner. They have a very extensive menu and a lunch menu through the week I recommend this facility for anyone.

I went to Peking restaurant yesterday with my friends. I felt good Chinese atmosphere when I went to the inside, the Chinese cultural picture, the chopsticks and Chinese menus, full of memory. However, the efficiency of service was a little low, we only ordered four dishes but waited for almost an hour. The waitress told us that food needs to... More

I went to Peking Restaurant for dinner with some of my friends yesterday. The food there was really tasty and the server was friendly. She served us the drinks first and took our order immediately so as to let us enjoy the food as soon as possible. What's more, the traditional Chinese food was cooked by a cook from HongKong....

We came in on New Year's Day to celebrate my Nan's birthday. We were a party of 4 and a bit of a fussy group with a couple of table changes. The staff were total pros and treated us wonderfully. They were clearly getting slammed with take away and delivery orders, but they never skipped a beat and our food... More

Peking has the best Chinese food, its always fresh and tasty. They serve authentic Chinese food full of flavour. Try the homemade dumplings.
