This place is supposed to be good? – Okay, needless to say, I am very much less than satisfied with what Detroit offers in the way of Chinese food. I went to Peking House with a friend, as a last ditch effort to find some good Chinese food. Well, that Asians worked there was a first good sign. That was the end of the good sign, though. They were out of their signature dish, which is what I was really looking forward to (something similar to peking duck). (It was actually the only thing on the menu that looked appetizing to me.) Of course, that they were out of the dish wasn't told to me until after I had ordered it. After that, the rest of the meal was unappetizing. Haven't been back to any Chinese in Detroit since.
Excellent Upscale Chinese – This is not the place to go for a huge bargain, but the prices are reasonable and the food is great. The service is also good. The glasses of wine could be a little bigger, but what can you do?
My Favorite! – This is without question the BEST Chinese food in the city! I refuse to go anywhere else!
Favorite local asian carry out – Before my fiance and I moved into the area, I couldnt get her to even consider eating chinese food. Then one day I brought the Boneless Almond Chicken home from the Peking House and changed her life forever!! I think they are very presistant with service and the quality of the food is very well presented. I like the speed of service. I can place a carryout order and I highly recommend the Peking House to anyone that wants very tasty asian food.
Good yumy Chinese food – I really like Peking House for dine-in, the food is good, despite the service being just avg. - really, have you ever been to a Chinese restaurant where the staff fawns all over you? Me neither. Except for the owner, he's a trip! But do dine-in, b/c the take-out just isn't as good. The garlic chicken and eggplant w/ rice is the best, and they have really good egg foo young. Definitely a solid Chinese restaurant!
stay away if you are in a group!! – We went to Peking House for a team lunch..in a group of 13 people. The waitress was pleasant but the service was sloppy. Our orders were messed up. People were getting things they did not even order. It looks like the restaurant motto is 'as long as you have something to eat at the table, its fine - need not even be what you ordered..'. The waitress scribbled our order on a paper napkin!! She was unclear as to what was in some of the dishes. Our bill was a challenge to decipher..The food was decent..but with all the hassles in service - i'd advise you to go someplace else!!
good chinese in downtown R.O. – This is an above average chinese resturant, in a good location, with a white tablecloth dining area. Could be considered upscale at a value price if you are eating in.
