In this cozy restaurant of Peeking Chinese Restaurant, patrons have a great number of "San Francisco Style" dishes to choose from in downtown Chico. Ordered cuisine can either have pork, beef, chicken, seafood, vegetables or even faux "meat" — as chicken or beef. In fact, they have a dedicated menu for vegetarians and vegans (but be sure to ask for no oyster or fish sauce). They serve Oolong tea at dinner for free, and rice may be ordered as a side (just 50 cents). In addition, Peeking Restaurant has a good selection of alcohol, to include Sake.

Peeking Chinese Restaurant offers very affordable lunches that range from $4.75 to $6 and includes white rice (and something else that I cannot remember). Furthermore, patrons can order take-out.

The interior of the restaurant has a nice warm and open feel to it because of its brick walls, wood plank ceiling, and sensible decor. Indeed, several paintings of Chinese character add to the restaurant's coziness.
