Once again, I call to make an order well before the closing time. Once again, the place is closed. Abide by your hours or change your hours. This isn't hard. "We closed early because we're slow" isn't an excuse. Maybe you're slow because you run...More

I have ordered happily from the Peking at West Tower multiple times and I expected the same quality from the downtown location...I was sorely mistaken. I got cashew chicken and general tso's chicken - both were bland and did not look or taste fresh. The...More

The place didn’t look like much from the outside and a bit shabby on the inside. The few customers at dinner made the cavernous restaurant seem even more empty, but the extensive menu looked interesting with the usual Chinese fare and then some out-of-the-ordinary dishes....More

Our family was in visiting Richmond on Christmas day and had dinner here. The food was good. The service was prompt and the prices were reasonable.

The food is always good. Really fast and courteous service. Location is downtown, easy to walk to but parking is off street or pay to park or put car in parking deck.

If you're into old-school, 1960s Chinese, this might be your place. But, if you like real food, fresh food, or just plain edible food, this is not the place to go. After my office recently moved to Shockoe Slip, one of my coworkers suggested we...More

We just wanted our typical Chinese menu so this was the place to go. It's not over-the-top fancy and it's not like your typical take-out. It's a mid-range dine in restaurant. Quiet and great food.
