We regularly dine here. It has been around a long time. The luncheon special serves two- I also love the egg rolls. The service is a little slow and you never know who is up front to take your money. It seems unorganized but the food is great. Most customers are regulars so they are patient.

The food is the best Chinese in lake Charles. The service leaves a lot to be desired. Waited 20 mins for refill. Had to ask for fortune cookies. However these are the best egg rolls in lake Charles and best hot and sour soup. Dishes are yummy too.

We selected Peking Garden for lunch today after reading local reviews, and glad we did. The restaurant is beautiful upon entry with dining rooms on either side of the spacious hall. Our server was cheerful and accomodating. My husband selected Human shrimp and I ordered String Beans with chicken. Both meals came with eggdrop soup and a huge eggroll. We... More

Everything is made fresh to order and the portions are huge. Mr. Jay cooks and the food is always consistent. The shrimp used in their dishes are huge and they have the best egg rolls of any Chinese restaurant that I've ever eaten at anywhere in the country. Their Lo-Mein is to die for.

New chef, horrible mongollian beef (which used to be my favorite), rude and unhelpful waitress who was also slow and inattentive. Only good thing now is their eggrolls and I'm willing to bet the new chef will screw them up as well. I'm afraid to go back and order something different for fear it will also be terrible!

We stopped here after reading reviews here on trip advisor. I have to say it is the first time TripAdvisor has let me down. The service was really good and this is why I am giving it a 3 instead of a two. The food was edible but not great by no means. We will not be coming back here.

Excellent food, excellent service, I'd go back. The menu was basic Chineese food. All of the standard dishes. There were 4 of us all ordering different things and no one complained.

Dont come here if you are expecting a American type of "Chinese buffet". This is run by the same family for many years and the food is delicious!! Try something you have never eaten before and i promise you will love it. The servings are generous so plan on sharing. Three separate rooms with traditional decor. They take pride in... More

This restaurant has the best Asian food I have ever had. Every other restaurant pales in comparison. Family owned with pleasant wait staff.

This is a sit down restaurant without a buffet. They have the best fresh Chinese food in town and absolutely the best egg rolls of any Chinese restaurant that I've ever been to. Their portions are huge and easily be split by two people. Their lo mien is the best ever and the restaurant only uses large shrimp in their... More
