OK the place is a cliché. Judge from exterior and inside deco the place gets no points at all. Then come the friendly service. The over size serving and over all OK to testy food I would said I was very surprised. If I am in the erea I will not pause before getting in again.

This family run place has been around forever. It's been a staple for my wife's family since she was little and we enjoy the food there to this day. I had better Chinese, but it is good food and I enjoy it every time

After a long day for both of us at work, it was awesome to again order take out from the Peking Café. The consistent food and prep time makes this restaurant a go to take out option for us. We especially enjoy the Cream Chees Wontons and the Egg Rolls.
