This is one of very few restaurants where I tried many different dishes and all were good. It is a rare find in the world of Asian food in Tel Aviv, and is priced accordingly. Superb food.

Good food with nice variety but expensive. Sushi, models and other Asian food. Portions are very big.

Went there because of the location and the atmosphere. unfortunately the dishes were disappointing, too greasy, too salty. Not a fine dining, if that's what you are looking for.

The food here is so much better than the usual Chinese food to be found. It's not surprising that this has become an institution. We ordered a number of dishes, sushi, cashew chicken, chicken curry, beef satzuan, vegetarian tofu noodles, sweet potato dumplings in coconut sauce- everything was fresh and just excellent. It doesn't come cheap but the quality of... More

It's not a budget location, but you do know you will get good quality food. Pekin has been around for over 15 years and has never failed to offer quality dishes, good portions and very tasty Asian food. The restaurant offers Japanese, Thai, Korean and Chinese dishes which have been slightly modified for the Israeli pallet - choose from normal... More

It is a good old ( more than 30 years) chineese restaurant, serving also sushi. We had sushi lunch. The quality of the food is good, but the food is very traditional and do not go too high. Tip: do not seat on the entrance level, which is close to the toilet...

This restaurant has been here for as long as I remember. It's been serving the same dishes for years now. My family eats there quite often. The dishes have no real strong define taste, but more mild. It would suit very well a family meal with the kids. Plus, they have sushi. The prices are average. I recommend this restaurant,... More

Pekin had a great reputation but unfortunately, in the last two years we ate & ordered deliveries more than once - & were always disappointed: most of the cooked & fried food tastes are artificial, swimming with oil. Prices are expensive & the whole experience was poor.

The food is good but the stuff of the place is somehow so proud of themselthes for no particular reason. As if you enter the private club not being a member. Best to call well in advance, come to pick up and eat at home. The best dish is chicken in curry. Calmary is fine for kids.
