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 was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had in dining at Wellington restaurant. I booked before hand, but when I came, no staff came to greet me and I had to stand looking for attention from the manager. After stating my name and booking, they started preparing the table. They dropped the chopsticks a few times when they brought them to us ( they changed it though), and we had to ask for water twice. We ordered dumplings, that was ok, but the main disappointment was the main. We used the voucher worth $51.8 (which they sold for $19) that said half of a duck but I didn’t see even 1/3 of a duck there. And it didn’t taste good neither. It took us 75 mins to finish our dinner, mostly came from waiting on dishes to be served. We came home with hungry stomachs and had to eat something else. Won’t recommend anyone to buy the voucher deal.

Chose to eat here with a group of 10 for my 50th birthday recently. Had never been here before but wonder now why it has taken me so long to dine here. It was just the best night, the staff were helpful, courteous and nothing was too much trouble. They let us bring our own birthday cake in and provided plates and forks to eat it from without any cost whatsoever. The food was delicious, fresh and tasty, my favourite entree the deep fried scallops as the batter was so light and not hard and dry and this allowed the flavour of the scallops to come through. The ribs are also excellent as well as the lemon chicken, chop sueys, bean curd, cutlets, chicken dishes…. everything we had was just A1. Thanks for helping to make my birthday one of the best I have had Peking House.

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.
