Great dimsum! I love the earthy taste and the smokey era that this place is still on. I love the Chinese vibe in here, really digging the great staff.

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

I live around the corner and get take out twice a month. I always get the sesame tofu and cheese wontons. You don't want to dine in because the seating in horrible but for take-out or delivery, I highly recommend it!

Located in a former gas station, this small restauant turns out Chinese food that is much better than you might expect when you first see the place, either outside or inside, or simply based on the name. Peter Chan and the other folks there take very good care of their customers; be they dine in, take out, or delivery,

We live in Park Hill and will drive to get take out from Peters Chinese. We like the Moo Shu Pork and the Mongolian chicken and hot and sour soup. The kids enjoy the fried rice.

Tucked into an odd little storefront (did it used to be a gas station or auto mechanic's place), Peter's Chinese is the perfect neighborhood Chinese spot. What's not to like? A longer menu than most, some great seafood options and a fresh, clean taste to all they do. We live a block away and love the aroma in the neighborhood when they are cooking. Nothing groundbreaking--and the interior isn't a place that makes you want to linger, exactly-- but it is tantalizing. We get takeout all the time and it's very dependable.

Peter's has the most amazing flavors and tastes I've had in the Denver area in years. He uses only the freshest meats and treats his customers well. The combination Lo Mien is full of flavor and has a taste you'll remember for days. One of a few places that carries Sesame Pork which tastes remarkable. The Crab and Cheese Wontons burst with flavor and are overflowing with filling.It's not a place to dine though as it's mainly set up for carryout or Delivery, but there are a few tables. I would much rather pick up and take home or to a park and enjoy the fresh air with friends or family.The service is out of this world and the taste makes me crave more, so if you're wanting to order carryout or live in the area, don't be afraid to be adventurous and order anything that catches your eye as most likely you'll be impressed.

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.

This Chinese is great. The people are all very friendly as well. They'll deliver most anywhere in the downtown Denver area. You can't beat the sesame or general sos chicken. I along with all my friends love it!
