For the best authentic Chinese food you must visit the friendly team at Peking House, where the majority of patrons, both regular and new, are Chinese - always a promising sign! The food, service and atmosphere are excellent and if you want the best Braised Chicken with Date and Chestnut or Yu Xiang Beef, then you must make Peking House your first and only stop.

This place is an absolute joke. We arrived and got no greeting from any of the wait staff. After 15 minutes with just 3 tables to look after we finally got menus. The food was very disappointing, grey looking meat and very tasteless food, even though we were hungry we just couldn’t stomach this food. I would never, ever visit this place again and felt resentful for even paying for the meal, it was below acceptable. Quite possibly the worse meal I’ve had.

The duck dish we had (which was recommended by the waitress!) was disgusting. Worst Chinese food we’ve ever had. We did not eat it.
There was no enquiry by the waitress as to our satisfaction with the meal or WHY we hadn’t eaten it. When I paid the bill there was NO conversation what-so-ever by the waitress.
As a visitor to Wellington this was a very disappointing experience as it was a 60th Birthday dinner . !!!

We ordered 3 dishes. Based on reviews, I was looking forward to the Duck in Plum Sauce. It is boneless duck, battered and deep fried, covered in a plum jam tasting sauce. Very fatty and sweet. We also ordered Sweet and Sour Pork, my daughters choice. Our takeaway does better. There was no sour, just a sickly sweet goo. The 3rd dish was also my daughters choice and the best, a noodle dish with a lovely and uncommon smokey flavour.
The wine was served in glasses that I haven’t seen since the 80′s, tiny little round shaped things. While ordering drinks meant summoning staff instead of them noticing we were without, they were very friendly and helpful when the came.

Wow, great service, friendly staff and so polite. Food was so tasty, even the kids loved it. Unfortunately they had no pork buns tonight but I’m guessing they were so popular and yummy that they ran out, would have loved to have tried them, maybe next time as we will definitely be back. We had a 5 course banquet and it was delicious, very authentic Chinese food. I’d love to come back to sample the rest of the menu as it looks divine.
