Peter's is my first choice for take out for one of those days when you crave greasy chinese food. The owner is very nice and he knows his customers. The sesame chicken is amazing, just make sure to specify if you want the spicy or mild version. I've also tried some noodle dishes and they were all equally great. Definitely... More

Chinese food prepared as well as anywhere in Denver. Peter Chang is from a family of restauranteurs. Very good food at reasonable prices. Carry out is best.

Peter is very high energy. He has a good banter with staff and customers. He seems to be quite a character. The food was cooked quickly and was reasonably priced. The eat in area is pretty small but is adequate for small groups. We just got the order to go.

After arriving in Denver a little late from out flight we decided to have a small dinner here. There were only a few tables inside but we dined in. There were to go orders going out the door left and right so I thought this place had to be good. I was right... We had a large egg drop soup...... More

A fine Chinese eatery. Everyone seems to have their favorite dishes here -- we particularly liked the sesame tofu. The service was pleasant, too. It's a small, unassuming place -- with good food.

This is mostly a take out place that has a few tables. Service was good. Green beans were excellent. I ordered my dish with medium garlic sauce. My friends ordered theirs with spicy garlic sauce. There was no spice, no seasons, little flavor in any of our dishes. The ingredients seemed fresh, but the overall flavor was boring.

Called in to ask about their delivery. They had $1 if order is under $15, another $1 if use credit card and depending on where delivery, a surcharge for that. I live 1.7 miles away but apparently they qualified as a surcharge delivery location so so decided to go into the store for pick up. They had the food ready... More

Stumbled on this gem when a restaurant across the street was closed. I love Chinese food, especially Sesame Chicken and Peter's has the best I've ever eaten. Since my first visit I've tried over a dozen different dishes and have never once been disappointed. The atmosphere is nonexistent as the building was clearly a gas station before. The lack of...

Peter's had a few sparse tables , the door was kept open and flies were inside . Chicken dumplings were tough . Shrimp with lobster sauce was very good . Peter was yelling unkindly at his staff . I might do a delivery , but never eat in again

I met a client here and they know Peter, who is quite the 'charmer'!!! I had the spicy chicken and my colleagues had their 'usuals'. Service was fast, friendly and they have lunch specials. A neighborhood restaurant so I am sure 'everyone' knows your name!
