Reviewed 11 July 2015

Was working in La Paz, solo diner. needed a quiet place to eat and read. Pekin was awesome. a real throw-back for this New Yorker to be in a kitchy Chinese restaurant. Food was spot on- some creative appetizers. Great value - I ate left-overs for days. Waiter was SUPER nice and friendly. Will definitely go back on my next trip. Would be great for a small group when you're tired of the fish and mexican options for dinner.

Thank kipaco

We ordered the appetizer plate which was a pile of thickly breaded and likely twice reheated/refried pieces of unidetifiable meat, 2 shrimp and 4 very greasy eggrolls. It all looked and tasted old and bland. The main courses were seafood chow mein and the seafood combo, thinking that it would make a nice change of flavour from the mexican, excellent way of preparing the catches from the sea. They both were a big pile of colourless, grey , tasteless food in thick sauces and with just a hint of seafood in both of them.
The waiter was very friendly, but we can not think of another positive thing to say about this restaurant. Reheated leftovers would have tasted better.

If you're a fan of North American supermarket Chinese food, you'll probably find Nuevo Pekin quite acceptable. Glutinous sauces, tasteless fried rice, and overcooked meat seem to be the standard fare. With so many excellent seafood restaurants and good Cal-Mex or Tex-Mex food available, I don't see why anyone would choose to eat here.

Always wanted to try this place as I have been coming to La Paz for the last 6 years and was seeking something different. Came here after dinner & had the appetizer plate which was the real deal. I'll go here again.

Well priced. Had a tofu dish and it had lots of flavor. I will definitely go back for more. Luckily it is very close to my home.
