It sounded funny so I just had to try the food. It was OK, not crowded and the staff were friendly. The food was not great. Sort of like a Chinese McDonalds.

Good food. Lots of variety. The interior is stark and boring. Service was fast and friendly. This was our guest's selection. I would recommend this as a good place for a casual lunch.

So you order your food then find a table and once ready the food is brought to you. I am not a fan at family meals when food does not all come out together. Luckily the kids food came out first otherwise there would have been upset The main meals were tasty but the wantons and spring rolls were too... More

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 it should be more, it should be better. The sauces are... 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.
