Never as good as I expect it to be...

This is such an excellent concept... and they really aren't doing anything wrong. Service is fast and cheerful; portions are well-sized; prices are fair. The menu is inviting, and the restaurant is clean and orderly and welcoming. Ingredients are fresh and high-quality. And the food is Not Bad. But... read more

The food is good, if you don't mind some corporation's idea of what authentic is. The atmosphere is kind of fast-food like, but the meals are a little more than that, so it's a good choice for something where Mac's isn't enough to impress. In short, there's nothing wrong with this place, but why wouldn't you try a small family-run... More

My family and I absolutely love Pei Wei. It is my two children's (3&4) favorite place to eat, along with my own. When my fav dish was disco'd, the manager was kind enough to come up with a substitution that would satisfy my craving, even though it took him two trys - it was a challenge he would not give...

Nothing special. I think Panda Express is significantly better.

It's a fun place. Kid friendly. you order, get a number, get your own fountain drink, place the number on the table and once an order item is ready they bring it to your table; a mix between sit down dinning and fast food. I like it. Food is consistent.

Overpriced wanna-be Chinese. Salty rather than flavorful.

One of my favs for quick, fresh, asian food. It's always clean, tasty and the price is right.

Please please do not eat Mandarin Kung Pao dishes from this restaurant (Pei Wei Asian Diner, located on Foothill Blvd in Pasadena, CA). My friend and I just tried Mandarin Kung Pao Scallops and Mandarin Kung Pao Beef for the first time today (Aug. 10, 2007 shortly after 12 noon.. and it will be the last). Both dishes were so...
