TEL: (510) 286-8866

An 880-seat banquet hall installed in the same Chinatown complex as the Asian Cultural Center and Library, Peony prepares Hong Kong-style dishes as well as an elaborate dim sum menu. The kitchen counts roasted suckling pig and crisp Peking duck among the dinner specialties, and the Peony's popular dim sum lunch regularly includes authentic dishes like pan-fried radish cakes, steamed pork buns, and lotus seed pudding. A few geographically off surprises frequently creep onto the expansive menu, such as Portuguese egg tarts. In addition to the gym-sized dining room, there's also a VIP room with karaoke.

Insider Tip:

While most of the customer-facing staff are bilingual, service here is better if you speak Cantonese.
