Worst Chinese on the Planet.
BAD CHINESE FOOD...FAUX AMBIANCE...OVER-PRICED...3-HOUR WAIT FOR A TABLE.
What more can I say?? P.F. Chang's is my worst nightmare.
Quality meats/seafood.. Probably a little overpriced, but hey, its a chain. I really enjoyed the all white meat chicken dishes and the lettuce wraps were very good. Overall, I think the quality of the food is high, even if it is americanized.
Pleasant and Good.. This is a great chain restaurant to eat at. Yes, it is not cheap but the quality of meat and seafood is better than most. Shrimp are nice sized and chicken is actual white meat. Kung Pao chicken is very flavorable. I have never had a problem with service but it definitely does not rival most non-chain chinese places where the servers are fantastic. Yes, it is not authentic chinese food but that doesn't mean its not good and there is no need to bash the place for it. I feel like some of these comments are made by people who just like waxing poetically about mom and pop authentic restaurants to act superior---I spent a summer in China. VERY VERY VERY little chinese food in the US is authentic and many of the Asians running chinese restaurants are not even chinese so really now....
If you want good authentic Chinese food, don't go here.. I figured this might be a decent place to go to dinner considering its reputation. However, the nice decor and bustling atmosphere belies some really bad Chinese food. The food was not authentic and I probably could have mixed up the same recipes for half the price by mixing ingredients from my local grocery store. We ordered the pan fried noodles and they tasted more like under-cooked spaghetti than the traditional dish. As another reader said, try a local mom and pop eatery instead.
User review by lindsayg353. I'm sure it is possible for resturants to have off-nights, but I have never had a problem with P.F. Chang's. My office holds our holiday party there every year, and we've always enjoyed great service and wonderful food. The Won Ton soup is EXCEPTIONAL and the prices are reasonable, considering the portions and the great taste. Sure, it isn't the authentic Chinese food you can have delivered from the place down the street, but it is unique and yummy. In fact...I think I'll suggest it for dinner tonight!
Not what you might think. I went to this place because the name was recognizable. Boy was I disappointed. The food was average at the very best and very pricey. I'll pay to eat anywhere if it's worth it but this place was not not good. The food had no real flavor and the server seemed as if we were a bother to him. We just wanted dinner! One would be much better served going to a local, neighborhood place that offers real flavors, real value and larger portions. Save your dough, go someplace else.
Delicious. If you're looking for a great chinese restaraunt with a nice atmosphere this is the place. With all these tiny chinese places popping up serving fat covered chicken and half cooked shrimp it is such a relief to know that PF Changs is a safe place to eat. The have a great variety and everything there is delicious.
What the.... I cannot believe the hype this place gets. I have had some very affluent people highly reccomend this place, so of course we tried it. It was AWFUL! If you literally believe that this is "good" Chinese Food, you have clearly never tasted authentic Chinese cuisine. Find a good "Ma and Pops" kind of place for best authentic cuisine. I can't believe how many people are smitten by mediocrity. I guess even wealth can't buy intelligence. LOL Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere...
What's the Big Deal?.
I don't know how this place could be rated #1 Chinese food! It is cooked by Americans and is very over priced! The best Chinese food you can get comes from a little Chinese restaurant owned and cooked by real Chinese people! Any of these little places you find makes better food than P.F. Changs! Also, why pay $20 to eat when you can pay $10 to eat better food at a smaller more intimate restaurant? Also, the smaller restaurants are not as crowded so the service is better and it is more personable, also you usually don't have to wait for a seat!
Don't go to P.F. Changs for real good Chinese... find a little place by your house!
what are you waiting for?. This place is great inseide out, the servers are right there making sure that you enjoy yourself, I expected to spend $100 on dinner for two but we had to stop eating after $35 cause we were stuffed, did I mention I'm 250 pounds and regulary consume large pizzas by myself... go there now, have something to eat then thank me for your excellent evening!!! oh yeah call and make reservations or at least plan to visit some of the retail spots close by, trust me.
