We mostly order for pick up and it seems to take a long time to get an order ready. I've thought many times they didn't have enough employees to handle the crowd. And this is creepy--when you call in an order, they call you by name and recite your prior order, asking if you want to duplicate it. If you say no, then they start reeling off other things you've ordered in the past. Feels really "big brother."

Restaurant is located right near I-45 in Clear lake/Webster close to the Baybrook Mall. It is on the other side of the highway from the mall in a small strip mall. It is about 3-4 miles before the NASA.

It is a nice simple Asian diner with both sit-in & take out facilities. It is a medium sized place with seating for probably around ~50 people. Ambiance is very nice for a diner and it is definitely not your average Chinese take out place. It is a nice place for a quick, nice Asian food.

Pei Wei is owned & operated by PF Changs and this is their version of quick service casual restaurant, so think of the ambiance to be a quick service version of PF Changs full service restaurant.

Food & Service
I ordered take-out and the food was well prepared and good. It was late on Saturday night and my take-out food was ready in about 10minutes. I should make a note that the service was very good.

Being a strict vegetarian, I usually spend sometime with the waiters to make sure they do not add meat or seafood etc(I often find waiters considering seafood as vegetarian). Here an young American girl who took my order, seems to be very knowledgeable and told me that Pei-Wei diner has stand-in instructions about ordering vegetarian foods that they even go to the extent of cleaning their woks & oil before preparing vegetarian foods! She patiently explained all this and took my order. Kudos to Pei-Wei for that.

This place is a semi- Americanized version of Asian food. They have chinese, thai, etc. Their egg rolls are yummy/ They paid thai is really good considering it is not a Thai place( better than Thai Cottage). Their wonton soup is pretty basic. It is never hot enough so I ask for it extra hott. Their portions are more than decent. It is a good value for the money. SIgn up for e-mails. They have been having coupons every month.

Let me preface by saying that I'm not a fan of PF Chang's quasi Chinese food if you want to call that Chinese food.

This place has the sort of the same bland food prepared by Mexicans but doesn't have the lame service provided by hipster white boys and girls who know nothing about Chinese food, but it's cheaper and faster, so if you are a fan of PF Chang's then this might be a place for you to try.
