The Peking Pavilion is an upscale Chinese fusion restaurant that is one of the best Chinese restaurants in the Monmouth-Ocean County region!
The decor is contemporary with a large main floor dining area and balcony. The main floor dining is a very attractive contemporary setting, adorned with cut glass, stone and tile, which accounts for the poor acoustics. The ambiance is trendy and energetic.
While the atmosphere is very attractive, it's not the place to go for quiet intimate dining, unless you are get seated up stairs on the balcony overlooking the main dining area. The balcony's decor is plain, although less noisy.
Peking Pavilion is owned and operated by the Ku family and offers many dishes of fusion Chinese with fresh gourmet ingredients, although reasonably priced for the quality of the food, the prices are high by Chinese restaurant standards.
There is a limited selection of traditional Chinese dishes on the menu. Their fare has made its reputation on offering high quality, Chinese fusion fare. Their beef selections are especially tender and tasty.
This is a very popular place and on peak nights be prepared for a long wait. While waiting for your table, you can settle up to the bar for a cocktail. The bar is attractive and contemporary.
Well trained service staff: Attentive, efficient, and friendly.
Peking Pavilion does not accept reservations for parties smaller than six.
Open seven days/week including Thanksgiving
They accept all credit cards and are child friendly.
