“Steer clear of the Mixed Hors D'Oeuvres!”
Review of Peking Express

I had dinner with my friends and one had recently ordered from here.

We ordered via Just Eat.

Prices we're fine and you get 20% off when you order is £30 or more.

Our order included the Mixed Hors D'Oeuvres for 2 people which we thought we'd share rather than buying individual starters.

The mains were fine, however as you can see from the images the sides looked like they'd been left in the tray for some time and probably put into a microwave to heat up!
There was no sauce on the chicken skewers which were supposed to be chicken satay. The ribs were dry and crisp. The prawn toast was solid.
When my friend bought the food in I said I could smell something burnt and as you can see there are holes in the tray, the theory of it being microwaves was probably right!
Needless to say these went straight into the bin!
Makes you question the true quality and hygiene of this place. Certainly wouldn't recommend or order from here again.

Ordered a set menu for 2 from Peking tonight and it was good. Chicken balls were crisp and tender, the king prawn dish was generous with the shellfish, the meat in the beef dish was a little bit chewy but the broccoli was bang on and the ribs stole the show - tender but with enough crispy chew to provide texture and ensure a pile of clean bones! Special rice was tasty. Big portions and plenty of vegetables for a tidy £9 and delivered hot within 20 mins. Good work Peking!

Near to where we live, good food, reasonable prices. Ideal when we don't want to cook, within walking distance for us, so convenient when we don't want to have to drive to the takeaway.

Daughter ordered some meals from here for when we got home from work.
Have to be honest found it to be very good, it was warm and only took just over 30 minutes to be delivered.
No complaints will use again....

Just poor on every angle you can think of for quality and customer service.

Deliveries take way too long to arrive and by then your food is luke warm anyway. Forgot part of an order and then tried to reconcile by offering more food?! Pork Chow Mein had tiny bones in, which just put me off the entire food altogether. I just threw the lot in the bin out of disgust and got an entire refund from Just Eat. DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE EVER!
