Peony Asian Cuisine serves some of the best food in Austin, hands down. No pretensions, just flavor
After googling ""good Chinese delivery"" over and over again for months only to have mediocre and sometimes just strange food that even my bulldog wasn't interested in, we finally discovered Peony.
So now, once a week we have a little piece of heaven delivered to our front door. All of the reviews will tell you that the hot and sour soup and even the egg drop soup will be the best thing that you'll ever put in your mouth. But let's not forget to mention the pot stickers that are cooked to perfection, or the Mongolian beef that is absolutely inimitable, and my new favorite, the House Spicy Shrimp that literally made my mouth water just typing the mere words.
Now, there have been many palatable moments that I have shared with Peony and through my journey I only have one mistake. That I had yet to actually dine in this place I call Heaven until last weekend.
And let's just say. Chu, you had me at hello. Chu is not only the owner, but now my best friend. He sat down to chat with us as we asked if they minded making us a quick roll at the bar while we waited on our to go food since they were closing in 15 minutes. They responded with, ""no problem. Have a seat and enjoy your night.""
Now, Chu doesn't normally drink but an hour later all of us were about four complimentary sake bombs deep into a stupendous longhorn roll , and quite entertaining conversation.
The staff and owners are friendly and attentive to say the least. The moderate prices and warm atmosphere encourage sake bombs, good company, great sushi and Chinese food that will leave you with a smile on your face.
