very good food, clean facilities and very helpful and courteous staff. would eat there again. It was a great place to have the family come and enjoy each others company. We had 15 people dine that night and everyone left full and in a happy mood. PS they have changed the name to the Peking buffet

This restaurant has changed it's name and owners to the Peking Dragon. The restaurant had a strange smell upon entry. Take out service was prompt but the food was very ordinary. Too much oil and not really authentic fare.

The food is really tasty, but there are too many unpleasant experiences with roaches. The female owner is great, however cleanliness is a problem.

We ate on the side of the restaurant where you pick your raw food, put it on a plate and then they cook it in front of you. Everything was really good, especially the donuts!!!

This is a place I will not eat again. I was never a real fan of their food but the roach problem I have noticed a couple of times is more than I want to deal with. Recommend going to Pikeville Peking for good Chinese food.

It was a bit pricey for your typical Chinese buffet. The food was good, although nothing was labeled so I wasn't sure what I was eating. The bar had fresh hot food with a decent variety. The atmosphere was a bit dark for a Sunday lunch but all in all very nice. The place seemed clean and the staff was... More
