Love this place. Great selections to choose from. Loved the mango iced tea. We had several different dishes and all were very good. They are very accommodating

Checked into the hotel next door and walked to Chang's. Ordered beers, pork dumplings and chicken special. All were very good. The place was not too busy, so we were surprised it took the food as long as it did to get to our table. Overall, good place!

Came with a larger group for drinks & appetizers. They do a nice job. We had the patio to ourselves and they kept us sated with trays of appetizers & to order drinks. I can't say that any of the appetizers knocked me over but they were all competent

We tried this place because it was close to our hotel. Our previous experience years ago at our local P.F?Chang was overpriced. This one was delicious foods, great service and the price was right.

The PF Chang's is pretty good food and it's fast. We ate here one night and the other nights, we ordered it in. Always dependably good and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

While the food was pretty good, the overall experience was below expectations. We had a Sunday, 6pm reservation for a party of 6. (1 person ended up being a no-show - work related). No problem with that. We were seated promptly and the table location was fine. Initial contact with our waitress was good and our drink orders were taken... More

If you sit at the bar the happy goes an hour longer and they have food and drinks on the menu. It was a fun place to sit and watch the game but without the "normal" sports bar atmosphere! The Red Sangria was ok but the Asian Pear Mojito and Strawberry Ginger Margarita were fantastic!

We got the meal for two where it comes with 2 soups, 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and a dessert and it was $65 for two people. The portions where decent in their defense but I don't know if I can justify spending $65 on a meal for two people for average Asian food. Our server was nice, the food came... More

We had a large party and the manager was very friendly in providing our large group an outside to fit all of us. The food was great and think the changes to the menu were an improvement over the years. Our waiter and waitress were a little inexperienced or appeared to be but in general it was fine. It was...

Located in the parking lot of the Embassy Suites. It is a great alternative to hotel food. I stopped over for a quick dinner and love that I can always depend on the quality of the food.
