Four of us had a variety of dishes. Good restaurant, good food, good service, reasonable prices. Nothing special but no negatives.

I had previously rated and recommended this restaurant before and the food was good but not anymore. the food arrived and it was poorly prepared and my favorite sweet and sour Chicken Balls were all batter with a scrap of chicken. I will not be back.

I hit them up for the occasional fried rice and chicken plate. Again, it's big and a little on the oily side, but I know what I'm getting and i'm satisfied when I leave.

Chinese food made by Chinese people. Can't ask for too much more than that. Plus, it's inexpensive, especially if you are feeding a crowd.

We stayed in the attached Hotel Pekin, so we ate there. Chinese Food as everywhere in the world. Breakfast only after 10 am. So we left this Valley before. Hotel Price 55,- USD no Breakfast. clean but very noisy because of the winds whisling and the dogs barking

We enjoyed our food at Pekin. If you want to eat vegetarian entrees, this place had a number of options, including bok choi, which was excellent. All the servings were large and filling. The service was not really slow, but it was indifferent. Balboa beer was $1. (In the bar it was .85!). This place has average food compared to... More

I had dinner there. Chicken & fried rice. before I left for Panama I heard of all these great restaurants. Do the reviewers on TA all eat in lousy chain restaurants?

Not being a lover of Chinese food, I have to say I love their Vegetable fried rice and batidas. Lots of room for groups or you can eat outside and watch the traffic go by.

We ate here one afternoon for lunch. They have a very large menu. We had the chicken fried rice to share along with our sandwiches. The portions were very large we could not eat it all. They sell cold beers for a dollar. The service was adequate.
