Don't think this is just another Chinese restaurant because believe me you will be badly mistaken. Each dish is so flavorful and authentic you may as well be in China. I travel to China at least once a year and this is as good as it gets. No matter where your taste buds like to go be it hot and... More

This was my 3rd visit and can say it will be the last. I know many friends have raved about Peter Chang's but I just don't see it. The food is good but nothing fantastic. My issue is the shear lack of NO ambiance and what I would deem as poor wait service. I would rather go to Full Kee... More

My daughter wanted to try the Bubble Pancake at Peter Chang’s after seeing it on Bizarre Foods on TV. I am all game for her trying new food items, so we went there for dinner. The place was surprisingly busy for a Monday night. Since this is not the first time we have been here, I felt pretty good about... More

Ok, I really had no idea what to expect when I came here but I ended up having a meal that to this day sticks in my mind as an unbelievable meal. The hot and numbing sauce with the combo was incredible! I don't think I've ever had a tastier piece of fish ( and I'm not typically a fish... More

I love some good Chinese food, particularly the spicy kind. I'm not from Richmond, but have been told this is the place for spicy! Went with a group of colleagues and we all ordered something different so we could share. I got the 3-pepper rated Spicy Szechwan chicken, which was hot but not 3-pepper hot. Other dishes included Bamboo Fish... More

Great, unpretentious place. Real Chinese food- no General Tso and broccoli in a puddle of soy sauce here. Very large and varied menu of delicious spicy food. The duck hit pot and fried eggplant are my favorites. If you don't enjoy heat and bold flavors skip this place if you do- don't walk, run here for dinner.

This is the second time we have eaten at this location. It's near the VCU campus and convenient when we visit our daughter who is a student there. First visit was for lunch in August and again Saturday night for dinner on Chinese New Year (Jan 28). both visits were very pleasant service and good food. They were very busy... More

Dry fried eggplant is terrific, as is the dry fried green beans. Bamboo fish , House Soscial Fish hot pot, Hot and Numbing Variety Hot pot. The lamb chops are the best!! Remember this is a Chinese restaurant, so each person doesn't need to order one dish. You can share which makes it even better for more than 4 people.... More

The three of us enjoyed our meals very much. The service was friendly and portions large. Peter Changs is worth the price. My only disappointment was that my request to turn down the Chile spice to 1 Chile didn't happen. ..it was too spicy.

The dishes are pretty spicy, and I like spicy food. But, even the spice can not cover the low quality of the dishes they serve. Last time my fish was not even fresh, I couldn't touch it. The service is terrible. I travel a lot around the world. And this place its own special place in ranking of bad service.... More
