P. F. Chang's China Bistro
This restaurant combines a contemporary, trendy setting with traditional Chinese cuisine. Popular with the business crowd, cell phones complement this spot's decidedly urban decor. Heat lamps allow for year-round dining on an outdoor patio, although many guests simply prefer to dine at the full-service bar. Mu Shu Pork is a favorite entree, served with hoisin sauce and thin pancakes. Popular seafood options include Chang's Lemon Scallops and Orange Peel Shrimp. Traditional meals such as Sweet and Sour Pork and Chow Mein round out the extensive menu.
The lighting and the decorations were nice. The waiters were annoying, talking too much, asking too many questions and would not leave us alone. The plates were not clean, there were pieces of dried food stuck to it and couple of pieces of old rice stuck on the bottom, the waiter went to get the manager and took off the wanton soup off the bill. Just to let you know this is not authentic chinese crusine, food tasted like a frozen dinner with little chinese ingredients. It's too fatty and salty but I guess most westerners grew up eating McDonalds and hotdogs so this is what they are use to. What makes a great asian dish is the rice, I know this because I am asian, and grew up in an asian home. The rice at PF Chang tasted like uncle bens rice or minute rice, it was dry, cold, clumpy, hard and tasted like it was sitting there for few hours. I asked for a new fresher bowl of rice, few mins later the manager showed up again asking what the problem was, except this time he as little rude and sounded annoyed. Ingredients in PF Chang does not come close to the real thing, go to a chinatown in a city nearby if you want real chinese food.
They use great ingredients to start, but this place is by no means authentic. The food is tasty, but if you go there with preconceived notions of what a dish should taste like (say Dan Dan Noodles), you may be disappointed or confused. The staff is friendly, and the bar is unique. Overall, a great experience.
The food was awesome and very good!!!!!! I had no problems about the restaurant even though the place is very expensive, they still give you the amount of food. And it's worth going there and spending your money!!!!!!!!!
The lettuce wraps were so scrumptious. We went with a large crowd and we all ordered something different. Everything had unique flavors like fresh ginger. It also seemed healthier than any asian restaurants I've been to. Drinks appetizers and food were delicious. I can't wait to go back!
