“Fantastic meal at a great price”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

I've been to the Pei Wei in Philadelphia and was excited to see one near Universal Studios, where we were visiting for the day. This one is just like the one in Philly, which is a good thing. The menu is mostly Chinese, but there are also Thai, Mongolian, Japanese, and Korean dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed the Thai curry, Mongolian, and teriyaki dishes. We highly recommend the edamame appetizer, which is perfectly done. You order at the counter, cafeteria-style, and they bring your order to your table with very little wait. We loved this place and we'll definitely look for other Pei Weis to frequent wherever we go.

“Vietnamese Chicken Salad Rolls - perfect for a hot day!”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

I love Pei Wei's fresh and innovative menu! The iced mandarin orange green tea is perfect - not bitter - and on a hot and humid day in Orlando, the chilled Vietnamese Chicken Salad Rolls (three large spring roll size wraps) were the perfect lunch with a sweet/sour dipping sauce and peanut sauce. The chicken and vegetables are thinly sliced and low fat - this isn't a goopy mayonnaise chicken salad.

My order was ready before I'd even had a chance to find a seat in the open seating area. If you've never been to a Pei Wei (they are part of the PF Chang's chain), you walk into a line up to the reigster and place your order. You'll get a plastic disk with your order number so the server can find you when your meal is ready. Then, fill your drink glass and find an open table inside or outside. The food comes to you.

I usually grab a handful of fortune cookies placed in the self-serve drink section to nibble while waiting but this time, the food came so fast and fresh that the cookies ended the meal instead (like they are supposed to). Definitely stop by if you are in the area and want a step up from the same ol' tired Chinese food buffet that tends to populate touristy areas. With their fresh approach, you'll be amazed at how good - and fast - fresh Asian cuisine can be!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

We had just arrived in town for a week stay and did not want to do anything too over the top so we found Pei Wei on the internet and decided to check it out. It was FANTASTIC! Everyone found something they liked, the service was fast and courteous, and the food was perfect. I asked for a little extra heat in my dish and it was just right. We came, ordered and eat in about 45 min which was just what we wanted to do. This place is definitely on our list of places to visit again.

“Good Food At Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed January 4, 2011

My family and friends visited the Pei Wei in Orlando while on vacation between Christmas and New Years. We all love PF Changs so we had high hopes for this restaurant. The restaurant is an order at the counter and sit down with a number type of restuarant. This did not bother us at all. The food came out quick and was very hot. Everyone loved the food they ordered. They were no complaints and the cost was less than 1/2 if eating at PF Changs. The portions are smaller, but usually we can't eat it all at PF Changs anyway. We were very happy with our food, the service, and the price. We woud definitely go back.

“Local Favorite”
Reviewed March 12, 2009

We dine here a few times a year and always enjoy the dishes which feature fresh veggies, tasty chicken and beef, and brown rice; it's consistenly good but certainly not 'authentic'. Unfortunately, we've had so much bad "chinese" in Orlando, it's better to play it safe. I truly believe the portions were bigger in the past than they are now, but it's still a good value.
