Budget priced sushi that tastes great! This has become a regular rotation take out option for us. Buy one get one roll everyday covers their more simple rolls as well as their more extravagant fried options. The shrimp mango roll is universally loved in my house. The staff is always quick and friendly. If you love sushi, definitely worth your patronage.

Peony is a great place. I love their sushi. They also have a good mix of Chinese and Thai dishes. The atmosphere is nice, but sometimes too dim for me to see the menu depending on where we are seated. The service is fast and the servers are very efficient. The servers are nice and polite, but they are not overly friendly. I only to point this out because the service is very good, but none of the servers are bubbling with personality. If you are looking for that kind of fun interaction, you will not find it here. Overall, this is one of my top places for Asian food. The food is good and the portions are nice. I have never been disappointed by the food or the servers. I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

Another fantastic Durham restaurant in a strip mall. Inside, it is elegant and beautiful. The food is delicious, on the garlic side of the Asian fusion spectrum. Price is quite reasonable for lunch. The rice is delightful! A feature, not an afterthought... I highly recommend Peony.

While my child orders the same thing every time (steamed mini dumplings), there are so many great choices for adults that ensure we don't tire of this restaurant. Our favorites are nigiri, poke bowls, hot & spicy chicken, and fried tofu with veggies. Great service and healthy wine pours make for a relaxing weekday meal.

I was there with a group of 12. Everyone ordered something different and we were all quite happy. Good service and nice accommodations.

This is the highest quality Chinese (really, Chinese plus pan-Asian) food I've found within 20 miles. We chanced upon them the first day they opened and have returned ever since. Modest atmosphere, decent prices, excellent food.

We traveled an hour to eat here. Good food, unique flavors. The crab Rangoon is delicious. Fast service and decently priced. If you are looking for traditional tasting Asian/Chinese this may not be the place for you. They add their own spin on sauces that reflect more Asian flavors than Americanized flavors.

Great small place to stop in and eat or take out. Never usually a wait but always busy. Great sushi and other asian dishes. Prices seem low to on par with competition.

Been going here for YEARS!! And never had an issue or disappointment. Love their buy one get one deal. I wouldn’t say it is “fancy” sushi but it is definitely worth your time and money. I would try the crab Rangoon!!

Safe place to get take-out during Corna. Staff was wearing gloves and masks while working. Food is really good, generous portions and fair price. The to-go packaging is very nice and secure. The bento boxes come in segmented to-go boxes, which is a nice touch. Please remember to tip during this difficult time

Have been coming for Chinese dishes for years. Recently tried the sushi on a whim... now I crave their sushi. Some great rolls with novel sauces, combos. A gem for eating in or to go, great hours, service is good.

Normally this place is awesome. I have a feeling lower quality of food is due to covid 19. Take out just wasn't that great. But I will return once things get back to as normal as possible.

Ordered a takeout. It was our first time with this place and reading the last reviews, I was a bit hesitant. However, my order was super easy to place online, was ready on time. Everything that needed to stay warm was indeed warm. Most importantly the food was great. We will be ordering again.

I've been going to Peony for many years. Their food is consistently excellent. I don't recall ever having a disappointing meal. They've adjusted how they serve food during covid well. Pickup is easy, quick, and safe. Our favorites are hibachi, shrimp dishes, sushi rolls, sesame chicken, and general tao's chicken. Portions are generous.
