This is your typical, very good Pei Wei Diner. For those who haven't been, it was a modern, trendy, comfortable decor. You walk up to a counter and order/pay for your food, then sit and server brings it. They have an excellent variety of traditional and for signature dishes and the food is consistently good and served promptly.

One of the things that is somewhat unique is the drink dispenser - from which you can literally order dozens of varieties of flavored drinks; for example, diet coke - or vanilla, cherry, orange, berry, etc diet coke. Multiply that by the fact that they at least a dozen other commonly available soft drinks, and you get the idea.

They also offer a variety of their entrees as platters that come with a slightly smaller (than entree size) portions and rice - great for a single diner or for lunch.

We tried the hot and sour soup (average to good), crab wantons (very good), crispy pot stickers (very good) and the chicken fried rice (very good). One thing I don't much care for is their brand of soy sauce - it is non-traditional and I think has too much vinegar.

The food was great and was served in a timely manner. The spring rolls are very good and the sauce that comes with them is a great compliment. Try the lettuce cups they are a favorite as well.

i did not know this is presented by PF Chang. If you like what PF Chang tries to serve up as chinese food then you'll like this. This is just as over priced as PF Change without the ambience of PF Chang which is the only thing PF has going for it. This is certainly not chinese food. It is barely passable as any kind of food! Better off looking for local take out...

Pei Wei is my favorite casual dining restaurant. Service is quick. The food is consistent and always delicious. The food is made to order as well so it is fresh when you get it. Even the fortune cookies are always fresh. I love their teas as well. My favorite dishes are the Lettuce Wraps, Dumplings, Crab Rangoon, Thai Dynamite with chicken and Sweet and Sour with shrimp. This location is crazy crowded at lunch. Get there early or late if you don't want to stand in a long line.
