China Terrace- Review

  In the heart of Peshawar, there is new Chinese restaurant and it is everything the city had been waiting for. Peshawar is a huge city with very traditional community. People believe in local talent and appreciate thousand year old values and beliefs, which includes food too.

Chinese food, well of course is not a foreign entity to Pakistanis but Peshawar had been lacking a proper place for Chinese food until now. With “China Terrace” opening, the people will now have access to the best Chinese cuisine in town.

I visited Peshawar earlier this week to try China Terrace and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Waking up at 6 in the morning and travelling for four hours was worth it. The place is beautiful and interior is very minimalist, which makes it different from the typical Chinese places in Islamabad and Lahore that are screaming with unauthentic flavor of China. Thank God there were no dragons or bright red chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.

The eating experience, for me was exceptional, considering that I am a picky eater and not very much into Chinese food. Dishes were presented very nicely and menu offered a wide range of Chinese cuisine. For starters, we ordered Chicken corn soup, Spring rolls and Chicken drumsticks.

Chicken Chili Dry

Drinks included carrot juice, orange juice, blueberry shake, pinacolada and packaged soft drinks. While there were not many options there, I believe it is wonderful to keep focus on a small menu and grow from there.

Opening of China Terrace in Peshawar is a bold approach but it definitely will attract a lot of attention once it is open to public. People had been waiting for this for quite some time now. We talked to a few people from the crowd and the overall vibe was very reassuring. The place is perfect for families dining out as well as group of friends out for lunch during the day.
