Please don't be fooled by the outside. Peking Chinese Restaurant is freakin awesome. My fiance and I have now deemed out our favorite place for chinese!
The times that we've been there, it's been pretty quiet. They've recently opened, and I get the feeling not too many people know about this little gem, or get fooled by its' outside appearance. Hence, the review to get the ball rolling. The wait staff is superb - so friendly, extremely nice, and wanting to genuinely see if you're enjoying the food.
Prices are beyound reasonable! Most platters range from $6-$8. The portions are very generous. All the times we've gone there. Their lettuce wraps and crab puffs are out of this world, so delicious. Soup and lots of rice come with every dish, both equally good. My fiance and i have had the Chef's Special Platter, the orange chicken, General Tso's chicken, the chili platter, and another one I cannot recall the name of. Irregardless, they were all tasty, and provided more than enough for lunch the next day.
The people at Peking are the type that are hard to find now a days as far as service goes. The food is fresh, hot, yummy, and delicious. Don't judge this hidden secret by it's outside...the food is fantastic!!!!
Kansas City's Best Local Chinese Restaurant – Just to tell everyone I am not a big fan of corporate restaurants. I travel a lot and it seems like every where I go the local restaurants are disappearing. The great thing about corporate restaurants the food and service is constant from one location to another. Trying new local restaurants are literally a hitt or miss. Peking Chinese Restaurant is one of those few hitts you will find when it comes to local restaurants. I prefer their homemade crab ran gons and hot and sour soup. The main dishes are very good. My favorite Chinese food has always been the crab ran goons and hot and sour. Happy Eating...
The only place in Kansas City for Yummie Chinese food. – This was my favorite place for Chinese lunch, dinner or take out when I lived and worked in the area. My former roomies also liked this place. The only place in Kansas City for quality, yummie Chinese food. The restaurant is quite busy, I go there whenever I'm in the area and the quality as good as I remember.
From Hollywood, Calfornia: the best Chinese outside of LA+SF+NYC! – I live in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA; the epitome of Chinese food in America. I came to Kansas for a filming and I had a craving for delicious Chinese food. I searched up from citysearch and realize there was this great Chinese restaurant. The reviews under city search are 150% correct.
For the last five months I have been recommending my friends to come to this Chinese restaurant when they come to Kansas for business. I can rave on and on about the Chinese food but the most important part. You have to try it! My Chinese food palette is ridiculously picky and this restaurant fulfilled my needs.
Be Prepared to Be WOOED – My friends and I have been going to Peking Chinese Restaurant for years, ever since we found out about their traditional American Chinese food. Thought I drop in and write something about them. They have pretty good food and the waitress / owner (Heidi) is a friendly woman to talk to. Yes, their food is not that salty and pretty tasty since it's different from Cantonese Chinese food. It used to be pretty difficult finding parking. Recently they started selling crabs and BBQ pork. The BBQ are the BEST and their crab is not expensive at all and prepared fresh and whole (chopped into pieces) compared to the other nearby restaurants.. Give them a try, affordable and tasty are the key words for this neighborhood restaurant.
