A new restaurant is set to open in the former home of one of Leicester's best loved eateries. The Peking in Charles Street closed in March 2018, after more than five decades in business. However, diners could enjoy Chinese cuisine in that very building once again - as it is set to re-open as Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant.

The menu offers a wide selection of dishes, with appetisers including crispy seaweed (£4.80) satay chicken (£5.80) and pan fried pork dumplings (£5.80). There's marinated and barbecue dishes such as Four Season roast duck (from £13.80 for 1/4 of a duck) and roast pork (£10.80).
