This long standing establishment serves delicious fresh Chinese food. Peking Chef has been our go to restaurant for eat-in and take-out for over twenty-two years. Great food and great people.

Flavorful, well portioned and tasty meals...our party of four basically went to all corners of the menu and shared; the group, young and mature, were smiling with satisfaction when it was time to "learn our fortunes" with cookies at the end of our dining experience. Good food, a clean establishment with a friendly staff; "they" are on to something here!

Traveling in the area and was so pleased to find a Chinese restaurant that serves well prepared fresh food. The general tso chicken is not your typical little chunks of chicken. It is large chunks that are lightly breaded and very well cooked. Service was good and was in and out for lunch. Will definitely come back if around the... More

This is one of the last classy sit-down Chinese places in the Valley. They have an excellent waitstaff and really good/fresh food. It's so nice that it hasn't converted to a buffet or store front take-away. It is one of the last places where you can enjoy a quality, leisurely Chinese meal.

I willingly drive the extra miles to enjoy Chinese food at Peking Chef. Everything on the menu is made freshly with care. The staff are always friendly and fast. The owner is warm and welcoming. My family and I choose Peking Chef for special occasions. The seating is always comfortable. Just a great place to enjoy a meal.

I have ate at this restaurant for a variety of occasions: celebration of my college graduation, my mom's 50th birthday party, and date night. Every time we have had great service and delicious food. The restaurant is lovely, and the waitstaff has done an excellent job providing table service and helping to plan menus for large parties.

Visually attractive but falls short in the gastronomic category. Every meal begins with an order and poor communication leads to problems. The order taker on my visit had little knowledge of english and kept repeating things I could not understand. Soup was my appetizer and I had just begun to enjoy it when my entree arrived. How can a restaurant... More

I have been going to various iterations of the Peking Chef since 1986. I hadn't been to the Dallas venue in many years as, last time I was there, it was dingy and both the food and service were sub-par. Thankfully that has changed. The place is brighter, the food better and the service excellent. The Spring Rolls are hot,... More
