Chinese and East Asian
Peking is Bath’s longest-established Chinese restaurant and has remained a family-run independent restaurant since opening in 1985. Today, Peking is one of the city’s most popular spots among locals, who visit for an unforgettable dining experience. The owners strive to ensure their diners are treated to authentic Chinese cuisine and impeccable service in an elegant dining space. On the menu are specially selected Cantonese, Szechuan and Peking-style dishes, which combine all the tastes and flavours China has to offer. The chefs respect traditional Chinese cooking techniques when creating their dishes and use local ingredients wherever possible. Start with a selection of crowd-pleasing favourites such as tender Peking spare ribs, and stir-fried squid with garlic salt and chilli, or try something different like the steamed scallops with garlic sauce or crispy barbecue lamb. For the main event you must try one of the chefs’ exotic creations – the baked lobster with ginger and spring onions is beautifully aromatic, whilst the baked crab in black bean sauce is bursting with umami flavours. Add a touch of theatre to your evening meal by trying one of the sizzling dishes such as the sizzling fillet steak; served with a flavoursome Cantonese sauce it’s an absolute delight. The chefs are also happy to make dishes that aren’t on the menu, so you’re guaranteed to find a dish to suit every craving.
