“Resembles Chinese food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

It's sort of like Chinese food filtered through an American chain mentality. Comfortable room, standard upscale chain service, good imported and craft beers. The special spring Peking Duck roll was tasteless, the pork dumpling fillings were tasty but the dough was excessively thick, lacking any delicacy. Shrimp with lobster sauce had no lobster flavor and had fermented black beans in the sauce, not correct. Mapo Tofu was fried which I'd never seen before. Nice presentations and generous portions. It's a corporate take on the Polynesian restaurants of 50 years ago. They should have a Pu-Pu platter.

“Tasty minor league China themed joint”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Do not go here if you want authentic Chinese food. Changs caters to the fast food lover with tasty but pedestrian mall Chinese.

The crew greeting patrons are youthful and void of customer service training. It's simply this generations lack of eye to eye contact. Smart phone ?

The apps are tasty. The soups are tasteless. Entrees are ok at best but leave you unfulfilled if you are a real Chinese food fan.

I know. It's convenient for mall people. You may as well visit the food court and save a few bucks for as good or better fast food China style.

Try the many other local Chinese restaurants and help local entrepreneurs .

“Tasty food with comfortable atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

The food is tasty and the dining atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. The service was good and the staff was friendly. They can prepare your food the way you like it. The wait was short and they have plenty of parking because they are located in the mall area.

“decent Chinese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

ordered from the special menu for two. Didn't enjoy the soup - very salty. wonton soup not available on special menu (yet same price as other choices on regular menu so that's odd). Really enjoyed the vegetarian lettuce wraps as appetizer. - ordered sweet & sour pork and sesame chicken for entrees. Both very good. Coconut/pineapple cake for dessert - average. Very good decor. Has outside tables which is a plus. Extra charge for tea (I've never seen this before in a Chinese restaurant).

Why do people go here? Choosing the lowest from of food just because you know you will always get the same quality? The Perkins of Chinese. Dreadful.
