Peking Garden isn’t new to the food scene, but new to the Youngsville area. Peking has been a cornerstone in the Lafayette community for many years. A Chinese and Japanese Hibachi & Sushi Restaurant. They are known for their outstanding sushi, high quality ingredients, excellent customer service and a friendly staff.
My family and I arrived at the restaurant a little after the restaurant opened on Sunday. There were a few tables that were filled when we walked in. The restaurant had a nice clean look. A mixture of both casual and elegant feel.
We started with an Sushi Appetizer called The Heart Attack. The Heart attack is a sushi roll with a jalapeño stuffed with spicy tuna, cream cheese and crab meat deep fried with spicy mayo. OMG, a really good sushi roll. A different texture than the average sushi roll but so good. I want to go order me another one right now, it was that good.
Many of the sushi rolls were so pretty. The sushi chef was very skilled. Peking has a Sushi Bar area, but it’s not a really big area. My husband and I are already planning our Sushi Date Night.
Baby girl wanted soup, so she ordered the Egg Drop Soup. Pipping hot The Egg Drop Soup was delicious. My only complaint was that the crispy Chinese chips were hard.
The kids shared the Chicken LoMein. The LoMein had chicken and veggies. The dish was tasty and fresh. The kids loved the LoMein.
My husband ordered the Sizzling Scallop and Beef. The dish arrived to the table smoking hot. It wasn’t necessarily sizzling but it was super hot and smoky. I think serving the dish in a sizzling skillet would add to the dramatics of the dish.
The dish was incredible. Great flavor. So good. The scallops and the beef were sautéed with scallions, onion and mushroom in a special brown sauce. The scallops were cooked perfectly in a rich brown sauce with delicious veggies.
I ordered the Dragon and Phoenix. The Dragon is the General TSO Chicken in a spicy sauce. Yum Yum. I have tried my share of General Tso Chicken, Peking has the best. So fresh and tasty, the perfect amount of sauce. So good.
The Phoenix is Shrimp with veggies in a white sauce. The shrimp was huge and the veggies in the Phoenix were cooked to the right texture.
The dish was served with white rice but upon request only.
Overall we loved Peking Garden. The atmosphere was cool, the service was incredible. Our waitress was on it, she did an awesome job. The food was on point, served in a timely manner. Everything was fresh and had incredible flavor.
My only complaint was that there were no desserts. One or two desserts would be good to offer.
The food was so good that I have already made a return visit for lunch. Peking has a Mobile app called Beyond Menu and you can order online as well.
Peking is in a good location and I guarantee their restaurant will be the go to place for many when cooking is not an option. Fresh, delicious food.
