I was excited to try the New PF Chang's in Syracuse, as I have eaten a Pei Wei's in the past and enjoyed it. I must say, the decor was very nice and the atmosphere and servers were great, but the food on the other hand was extremely dissapointing. We ordered three appetizers: The Vegetarian lettuce wraps, Tuna Tataki crisps, and the Crab wontons. The lettuce wraps were very bland and needed serious helpings of the "side-sauce", not horrible by any means but really no flavor. The Tuna tataki should have been fantastic, and they sure did look it, but again, a complete lack of seasoning and salt. My friend did enjoy her crab wontons.
My main dish - was really awful and unfortunately I did end up sending it back ( which I really hate doing ) but I literally could not eat it.
The description was: STIR-FRIED EGGPLANT
"Chinese eggplant tossed in a spicy vegetarian sauce with chili paste and scallions" It sounded delicious but what I got were small chunks of fried eggplant, swimming in a very dark brown, thick sauce, which tasted like reduced and thickened soy sauce and nothing else..
My friends dish- SICHUAN SCALLOPS were decent and cooked well but very sweet- more like a sweet and sour scallop in an orange-ish glaze.
Overall I was very dissapointed.
