I've been going to New Peking since the restaurant opened it's doors. I've moved across the city and back to Lakewood. The restaurant has the best chinese food I've eaten ... and I've tried several restaurants across Colorado. The food is fresh, tasty, always hot and never tastes like it's been sitting all day and reheated for dinner. We dine-in, take-out and get delivery. All four of us are allergic to fish and seafood, so we make sure we tell the wait staff what we are allergic to. Su - the everyday hostess/waitstaff knows us by site and recalls our standing order. Why mess with perfection when we eat the same thing almost every time we order? Su knows what we like, how we like it and keeps the details in her head. She may be 'subdued' with other patrons like the other reviewer wrote, but she is anything but subdued when we frequent the restaurant. The updates to the facility are quite nice, but when you really consider why you frequent a restaurant it's really more than atmosphere. Hands down the food is the best Chinese food I've ever had - from the hot and sour soup, fried rice, egg rolls to the lo mein, orange chicken without onions, scheshwan chicken or kung pao chicken. Top off the great food wtih a reasonable price and you get a happy and returning customer. I definately recommend New Peking if you are dining in Lakewood, CO.
