This place is absolutely fabulous. This is authentic chinese food from a host of different regions. I am an avid patron of gourmet food, and usually willing to spend to go out. Peter Cheng's is amazing because you combine great food, great ambiance, and very reasonable prices.
Ambience: Clean, white table cloths, ample space between tables, great for dinner with friends or a date. A number of tables over look full wall windows which look over the river.
Food: The previous review is obviously by someone who appreciates fast-food chinese. This food matches and surpasses the chinese food you will find in few remaining Chinese establishments off Buford Highway (that ""Chinatown"" is dominated by Vietnamese and Korean offerings). The meats/fowl/fish are extremely fresh, the vegetables are always crunchy. What is amazing is the variety of cooking methods (sizzling, stir-fry, stew, clay pot, and grill) combined with the different recipes and of course, any meal can be Shrimp, Chicken, Beef, or Fish. After three pages of chinese specialities and local dishes, there is a full page reserved for ""American Chinese Dishes"". Warning: Do not be bashful about requesting for the spice levels to be reduced.
Full bar with specialty cocktails, wine, beer, and liquor.
Final comment: I went to GT but now reside in Savannah, GA. Every time I drive back to see my family and friends, will eat here on the Friday night. I will then order an extra 4+ entrees and take it back with me... and I can cook chinese food. This place qualifies as an Atlantan gem.
