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.

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...More
