Every item on PC's (special) menu is outstanding! The Mala Beef Tenderloin and Fish Filet are especially excellent and the Bubble Bread is a delight. Do not leave C'ville without a stop at Peter Chang's. You won't be sorry.

As a foodie, I had read several favorable reviews about Peter Chang and was curious to check it out. We started with the dried eggplant appetizer.....very interesting. The eggplant was peeled, sliced into sticks, then fried. It was served with a spicy scallion mix. My eye had been caught by a shredded duck and smoked duck dish served with celery... More

Modern, cozy atmosphere. Quick, friendly service. Reasonable prices. Oh yeah, and GREAT food. This place has a widely varied menu of Chinese-American dishes that tilt (in style and flavoring) toward the Chinese side. (I'm basing this on my experience in LA and SF Chinese restaurants.) To my mind, you can't go wrong getting a meal here.

A The service was outstanding. Our food was very good generous portions. Looked as if this must be a popular and busy place. Several people came in for take out while we were there. My husband had a shrimp dish, I had the Kung Pos Chicken. Hot and sour soup was also very good. We will be back when we... More

I really liked the Dry Fried egg plant sticks - the menu describes them as stir-fried with Szechuan peppercorn and chili, scallions and cilantro. whatever makes it work, they're magic ! our server was delightful, knowledgeable abt the menu and really focused on us in a friendly helpful way when explaining the menu or serving . terrific.

This place is outstanding! Excellent wait staff and dishes I've never seen at other Chinese restaurants. The portions are more than generous, and you can order your food as spicy or as mild as you like. For the spicy food fans out there, I highly recommend the Schezuan Hot Pot.

Really good, really authentic and well-seasoned food! The menu is very comprehensive and seafood, lamb, chicken, beef, tofu, fish are well-represented and cooked in a variety of different styles. Little pepper icons indicate degree of hotness in the Schezwan styles. There are many soups, many clay pot dishes, many vegetarian dishes. We opted for dinner entrees of chicken and mushroom,...

Food was a bit pricey but so good. We had lettuce wraps, the golden mountain beef, and General Tso's Chicken. The beef was especially good.

I'm from north New Jersey and my dad used to work in Chinatown in city, and often took us to various restaurants for Chinese food and dim sum. That being said, I'm used to being disappointed when going to different Chinese restaurants in Virginia, with the huge exception of Peter Chang's. This is one of the hands down best Chinese... More
