ridiculous to go to Manalapan???? What are you talking about? The original poster says they have been using Hunan Wok which is located by the McDonalds on rt 130. Peking Pavillion is no more than a 12-15 minute ride from there. And the title was the Hightstown area, Peking Paviilion is right down rt 33 from downtown Hightstown a 10 minute ride at most. If that is ridiculous then they really have few choices other than Hunan Wok as I can't imagine how many other chinese places are less than 12-15 minutes away.
Now on to your second point, "far from impressed" with Peking Pavillion, well I would love to hear about a local chinese food take-out that impressed you cause it must be spectacular and I would love to try it....so please enlighten us and tell us where you go for your chinese take-out..... as I have stated we love Chinese and eat it 2-3 times a month so please let us know about this great place in this area, because I have found none that compare to Peking Pavillion.
@ieee488 try it and please come back and give us your review I don't think you'll be disappointed. I would recommend tyo eat there if you can as you can get takeout but me and my wife always usually eat there.
@yCf if you are comparing it to PF Chang's, you obviously have never eaten there. They aren't even on the same level.... try it and then come back and tell us what you think
A few items that my wife and myself love and I would suggest....
Filet Mingon Eggrolls! Order one...Nah, order two, and another couple for your friends...Such a great idea..Ive never seen them before, but they are awesome.
Pork Dumplings are a must the sauce is amazing!
The jumbo sesame shrimp (the biggest shrimp I have ever seen)!
Chicken and Broccoli is the best I have tasted!
My wife loves the sweat and sour chicken which is a tad different from the local take out as it is served in a half of pineapple and isn't servered with the sauce on the side. And not deep fried and greasy like the local take out joints.
Lastly DESSERT, the AMAZING banana flambé with coconut ice cream is a must...
Hands down the best chinese food in the area. I have lived the past 10 years in Cranbury and west windsor. Peking Pavillion is located on rt 33 right near the freehold mall (about 5 minutes from). A little pricey but well worth it....
