I live in the UK, and I love China Town in London where I regularly like to eat good authentic Chinese food. However... I just visited this little gem and.... WOW!!! It is not a fine dining place, but that's what makes it even more appealing. The staff are lovely, the restaurant is a good size, but more importantly... When... More

On vacation and looking for Chinese food in Laguna Beach we found Peony. This place isn't on the published Laguna restaurant food map, but right next to Slapfish (which is on the map) on Broadway near the Coast Highway 1 and delicious. Food freshly made, beautifully seasoned, and portions generous. Very friendly service and reasonably priced. Very Very good, and... More

We really enjoyed having dinner here two nights in a row. Great service very friendly and the sushi was awesome. Its small and less crowded like the other places nearby, perfect for us. We will definitely be back.

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel and the food was fabulous. The little take away with dine in tables has beautiful large meals. The couple there are very nice with fast efficient service. The food and the wine is cheap. Great place for family and couples wanting food not far from the beachfront which is just a short... More

My family was hungry for Chinese food, so we walked downtown and found this restaurant across from the Main Beach on Broadway. The food exceeded out expectations. My cashew chicken was a large serving with lots of chicken and cashews with brown rice on the side. It was steaming hot, fresh, and delicious. Everyone cleaned their plates. The staff was... More

I've eaten here many times. Since moving to downtown Laguna Beach, it has become my standby for takeout. The food is fresh, cooked to order, and tasty. The place is family run with friendly service. Favorite dishes include the cashew chicken, chicken curry, and broccoli shrimp. I will continue coming back.

When I don't want to cook, and there is nothing that I want in the fridge, Peony is just a phone call away. Very good Chinese food at reasonable prices. The shrimp used really are large prawns (10 to 16 the pound) and really tasty. The Walnut Shrimp, Kung Pao Triple, Combination Fried Rice, Pad Thai w/ Shrimp are each... More

Came here on a Friday night and has Korean BBQ beef with broccoli and rice also some teriyaki chicken. Portion sizes just about right not too big like you get in some places. Service good and friendly staff. They do a take away service as well, we will be coming back .

Good portions, good price, friendly prompt service, more of lunch destination to me than an evening night out but will definitely go again. Really liked the way the chef came round to ask me if I was enjoying the food! Super yummy.
