Fresh and tasty

Very nice restaurant to have a cozy evening with freshly prepared food. The house special soup is a must to taste. I can't have enough of it. I have been to this place many times, every dish I have ordered so far is well prepared. Highly recommended.

We used to love this place, but then we realized how good Asian food could be (THANKS ROOTS, by Whole Foods)... and suddenly P F Changs felt tired, salty, and mass-made in this big chain of restaurants. The opposite of Roots, which has feeling, locality, and complex taste. P F Chang is skimpy on the food, noisy, and more a... More

We generally enjoy P.F. Chang’s very much, as others have mentioned it may not be authentic but it’s typically good quality food and tasty. On our most recent visit though I have to admit to feeling a slight dip in the experience. Service was still excellent so that helped. However Chang’s chicken lettuce wraps weren’t quite as delicious as normal... More

My wife and I enjoyed a combination of Orange Peel Beef and Sauteed Spicy Eggplant accompanied by hot and sour soup. We arrived after 7pm on a Monday evening - not prime time for most restaurants - but benefitted from seating that offered considerable privacy in what is otherwise a big open eating area. The service was rapid and to... More

This is a wonderful restaurant with a nice menu and atmosphere. Highly recommended! The only downside is that it gets very crowded, so make reservations.

Loved the whole menu, if you like Chinese food with a twist you'll like it. Menu has a little something from everyone. Generous portions too.
