*Best Sesame Chicken in Town*
Best way to go here is to get Take out.
Peter makes the best Sesame Chicken in Town. If you don't believe me, ask him, and you will find out how much pride he puts into that dish.
Seriously some of the best Chinese food in Denver. Best Sesame Chicken hands down, Best Walnut Shrimp in town, Damn good Lo-mein etc. I've known about this place for more than 20 years and its still just as good as it's always been.

They deliver to a wide area which is good, however, for
$8-$10 per entree only received a small container of the main entree and small container of rice. The food was delivered hot, but I thought there must be some food missing after I opened the paper delivery bag. No food missing-did I order off the kids menu? Small portions but I could be a great place if there was more value for the money.

We live in Lakewood and drive to Peter's any time we want Chinese. Peter's has the absolute best Chinese food I've had in many years. I stumbled across this place while my wife was in the hospital and have never stopped going. The Lo Mien is remarkable, full of flavor and fresh. Peter's is also one of the few places that makes Seaseme Pork, and I've never had anything like it. My wife won't eat pork, but will eat this. I was a little disappointed with the Scallion pancakes, but they were still really good, just not the best I've ever had. The crab cheese Wontons are some of the best and you can never go wrong with the Seaseme Chicken. We want to try more things on the resturant menu, but what we get is so remarkable, I can't bring myself to try anything else. A friend had the Sweet and Sour Chicken and like the rest of their food, it was fresh and full of flavor.
I spoke with Peter, and he said his secret is he uses fresh food, and deosn't use the lesser costing meats and try to tenderize it with baking soda like may other places do. Whatever he's doing, it's worh the drive and the $.50 more that we pay.
My only problem is that it's more suited for carryout or delivery. If he could somehow add a large dining area, I bet he'd add much more business. I wish we could go there for a romantic dinner, but we can always do that at home or at a park after we pick it up. There are 3 tables, so you can eat there, but again, it's not set up for the best dinning experience.
So, if you can eat elsewhere and want amazing Chinese food, this is the place for you.

Congress Park is lucky to have a great Chinese joint like Peter's. Hot, fresh and always delicious, we have never had a bad meal there in four years. We particularly like the sesame chicken and mongolian beef. They are never scared to make the food spicy, and they will always make it how you like it. For the kids dumplings work great, and they love it when they hear we are ordering from Peter's.
As a neighborhood place it is very convenient for takeout and if you stop by, you can probably get a stock tip thrown in with the soy sauce. They are great people, fun to talk to, and their love and enthusiasm shows up in the food.
