Went with husband on a date night, it has a nice atmosphere, red and rich, nice romantic booth. Service was fabulous. Had sparkling chilled sake which was very good! Pepper beef was a huge portion with great spice and tender slices of meat. Plenty of beef. Had the clay pot with mushrooms and rice noodles. For a mushroom lovers this was very good. The only thing that wasn’t tooImpressive was the appetizer platter - it was basic. But everything else was great above bar Chinese food! Would go again. Definitely recommend the booth seating and the sake. For two people , the dishes mentioned above and two bottles of sake $170

Came to Peppermill for our 30th anniversary and the first two restaurants had over 1 hour wait! Forgot HotAugust Nites started… So we tried Chi! Great Bartender (Casey) recommended 2 excellent cocktails made with house made products. We liked each dish pictured below. I really liked the seafood, chicken and pork combo. My wife’s favorite was the Mongolian beef. Also had the hot and sour soup, which was top notch. Definitely will come back and try some other parts of the menu. But I expect I would have the soup and a cocktail again. Great service by Linda in the restaurant. The only reason I got four stars is it seems like over $50 a person for Chinese food is a little expensive.

I chose this restaurant for my birthday. I was disappointed ? the real disappointment comes from the obvious discrepancy between the price and the quality of food served. I'm fine paying $40-50 for a dish that is worth $40-50, but only one dish here lived up to the cost.Ordered:1) $18 calamari ? appetizer1) $32 prawn ? with vermicelli and garlic2) $40 sliced duck ? with shrimp, chicken, pork and greens3) $22 orange blossom chicken ? (the only dish worth the ?)Service: Needs Improvement!The individual who sat us was polite and welcoming. However, our server always seemed like she didn't have time for us. When clearing dishes, she would kind of reach over us in a way that interrupted the meal and take plates too soon. She also didn't seem interested in discussing the menu. If she is just that busy, then they should hire more servers. Our waters were filled quickly, but it never felt friendly. However, the guy who brought our tea was nice. Compared to other Peppermill restaurants, this was the worst service.Atmosphere: Smelled of cigarette ? smoke, but well decorated. Also, the tables feel a little large for the round booths so you don't get a lot of wiggle room.Appetizer: The calamari was small, dry, and not up to portion desired for the cost. This was worth $12 max, not $18. The dipping sauces were nice though.Entrees:The prawn ? with vermicelli was tasty but it was really just some thin rice noodles with garlic and about 7-8 prawns (slightly larger shrimp). Underwhelming dish worth about $22, not $32.The sliced duck ? was okay. The duck was 4-5 dark, fatty slices of meat that I needed a knife to cut. They were under 3 shrimp, some sliced pork and chicken pieces and zucchini and baby bok choi. Again though, these were not big crispy slices of seasoned duck, but instead were wet and soaked with gravy at the bottom of the dish. The presentation was uninspired. It was not a $40 dish. It was a $30 dish at best.The orange ? blossom ? chicken ? was the best item we ordered. This was the only dish that kept the review from being 2 stars. This dish comes with about 8-10 huge chunks of breaded chicken (they were decent cuts) but the sauce is awesome ?!! I thought it had good spice, a nice body, just a hint of sweet, and was perfect with white rice. This dish was worth the $22 we paid for it. I highly recommend this dish for anyone that likes chicken and a little spice ?It is unfortunate that the dish that simply gave a bunch of meat was the worth it winner tonight. I would love to eat dishes with more complexity in both presentation and flavor but Chi did not really deliver. I can honestly say I will not be back for a while.

We love Peppermill Reno’s Chi restaurant. We have been going here for over ten years. The food is spectacular, and the staff are wonderful. The manager Patrick is always gracious to us. Coming here is always a highlight of our trip.

It is my husband birthday, so we spent the weekend in Reno, Nevada. The décor was an imperial elegance of red/gold silk. The lemon cocktails were simple but strong. My husband enjoyed his braised duck and seasoned greens. I was so impressed with my meal! I ordered the whole live Maine Lobster Steamed was spot on. I wish to give this restaurant a 6 Star review.

The food, was exactly what we were looking for but unfortunately, we aren't accustomed to family style dining and we ordered way too much. If you eat here, remember this so you don't order too much. Noodles, rice, chicken, beef... all of it was really good. The fried rice had great flavor. The only set back was I prefer the rice a little fluffier. My favorite was the roast pork with soft noodles- I'm having a hard time finding this kind of dish in town and it hit exactly what I was looking for. The beef noodles with soy sauce were also a show stopper - for their flavor and the beef's tenderness. The soup was great for the weather, definitely recommend the hot and sour. The service - exceptional! Such kind and warm people work here, you can tell they are happy to be there. To end the experience, warm towels to clean up.

Besides the fact a party of one that didn't want to sit at the bar kinda threw off the host, this was an enjoyable meal. I had the wings, curried prawns, and egg flower soup. Everything was served hot and tasty. Very cool classic old school Chinese restaurant ambiance, lots of red, dim lightning. The waitress' here are great. I enjoyed my meal.

Let's start with the great. The service was fantastic. I'll waitress Sierra was polite attentive and very knowledgeable of the entire menu. When the food arrived we were also mightily impressed nicely prepared and very flavorful. The two stars came as a result of the horrendous air that was circulating around that restaurant. Being that this restaurant is in a casino you have a massive amount of smokers and that smoke was periodically wafting into the restaurant causing me to break out into coughing fits. I urge management/ownership at the peppermill to seal that front off somehow because it absolutely ruins the dinning experience. That's why despite all the positives of this place I will never come back. Please fix it.

Worst meal ever. Orange chicken was so tough I wondered if I was eating chicken, worse than chewing beef jerky. And lacked orange flavor. Pot stickers sucked! Sweet and sour pork was tasteless. Chicken chow mein was dry and lacked flavor. As previously stated worst dinner ever!

Simply amazing, delicious food. We went on a weekend night so it was busy and we had to be patient for service.

My family came here to celebrate my birthday and it was an amazing meal! Loved the family style dishes! The calamari was super tasty with their special seasoning, but pretty small serving so we had to order another one. The dishes are on the pricier side but really great quality. I ordered the steamed fish and it took me back to my childhood. Yummy huge prawns and walnuts dish too. Nice quiet ambience, great place to celebrate special occasions. Too bad they are only open for dinner and not every night.

We were a party of four. We ordered the meals at $35 each, with appetizers and four entrees.The food was good (a short step up from mall food), albeit more expensive than it was worth. Other Asian restaurants nearby are better and cheaper, and one doesn't need to hoof it all the way through the casino to get there. The service was good, and the ambiance is pleasant. Good for tourists, I guess, who don't know Reno. Try Jazmine instead.


Perking duck and mongolian beef were great. Nice idea of hot wash cloths. Service was a little slow.

Since it's my special Day.. I chose to dine here.. My son loves the steamed fish so he wanted the sweet & sour fish.. I would of preferred the steamed with ginger and garlic, so next time... Honey walnut prawns and spicy green beans were great! Ordered the half a duck and it was very meaty .. not as what I expected but still decent. Grateful for another birthday and to have been able to share my special Day with each son each Day..

Definitely very nice inside. A lot of red for decor. We decided in the dinner combo which was $35/person. Myself and my daughter (who got to have dinner without littles) ordered the lemon chicken. Husband ordered generals chicken. The chicken chunks were very large, chicken breast. The flavor of the lemon chicken was tasteful. The sauce was perfect, not runny and not too thick. We did have have appetizers that were part of the meal. Chicken wings, which were very good and had the perfect blend of salt/pepper flavor and were crispy. Crab Rangoon (not my favorite this time), and egg rolls. We ordered appetizer of pot stickers. As they were good, but the same as most Chinese places. My husband also ordered a clay pot that had tofu, pork belly, and oysters. This as well was very good. Meal includes icecream and a cookie. I ordered Coconut for the icecream and have to say, best icecream I've had in a while.
