Again fantastic meal and service. The owner and staff made the new year Eve's family meal a great occasion. The quality of the food and the personal service provided even though they were very busy was a credit to the staff. I believe this is the best Chinese restaurant outside China town and very good value. Keep up the good... More

Called in at lunchtime with two colleagues two days ago. Had read the reviews and hoped it would live up to my expectations, believe me it did. Excellent service, excellent food, what more could you want. It is difficult to find good Chinese restaurant in Leicestershire these days but this one ticks all the right boxes, will certainly return

A friend booked a table for a group of us at The Peking on a Saturday. It was the first time I've been to Leicester's oldest Chinese restaurant but I'll definitely be going again. There are three menus (include a traditional Chinese one) and all the food we had was excellent. The portions were generous, but, by the end, everything... More
