Convenient find nearby my doctor. While I talked with the doctor, my wife ask Trip Advisor for nearby restaurants. Peony Asian Bistro pooped up so we gave it a try. We ordered the Bento boxes and chose our contents by selecting items from four categories. The meal was delicous and our server was efficient, pleasant, and very professional. Next time... More

Since Asian restaurants are known for being open on Christmas, we wanted to find a good one on the way back to VA from GSO NC. This didn't disappoint! They were very busy and only had 2 servers but were very prompt!! Expansive menu and everything we had was delish! Highly recommend!

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Ate lunch on Saturday using their lunch specials. We had Chicken Pad Thai and Sesame Chicken with egg rolls, fried rice and hot tea. The portions were large and the food came out fast! Our server was very nice and came back often to make sure we had everything we needed. The Sesame Chicken was... More

Once again Tripadvisor didn't let us down. On an overnight stay in Durham we both wanted Chinese and searched the listings and picked Peony. Great spot. Very friendly server, great food - steamed shrimp dumplings and scallion pancakes for apps and Happy Family for an entree satisfied our cravings. Will be back ib the future.

First visit the food was good. Second time it wasn't as good. The food is inconsistent. Some of the peas in my vegetable fried rice were still half frozen, while other vegetables were overcooked. They advertise they deliver but that too is inconsistent.

Ate here for lunch with a couple of my coworkers who had never eaten here before. I have eaten here on multiple occasions and enjoyed it every time. I really like their sushi which is all reasonably priced at buy one get one free and if you want to try a variety of things off their menu their bento box... More

After getting several mediocre Chinese meals from other places I thought I'd give this place a try. I was not disappointed, very tasty dishes and happy they have brown rice as an option without an extra charge. This is now my top Chinese place in the area.

We ordered a few dishes and a few rolls. I have to say they have fantastic walnut shrimp, however the sushi was not good and did not taste fresh. This is not the first time I have ordered sushi here and found it to be subpar and small. I had thought I had caught them at a bad time before... More

I found everything we ordered to be better than most Asian places we have eaten. Soup and dumplings were great. Beef Lo Mein excellent. Beef and Broccoli very yummy. The fried ice cream was quite a treat. And the service was very good.
