This gussied-up chain bustles with singles and families craving Chinese food favorites. – In Short
Towering twin stallions and carved wood screens add majesty and mystery to this stylish restaurant, where well-dressed patrons sip martinis at the bar and families with children feast around large tables or in spacious booths. The menu gives Chinese classics a contemporary tweak; dishes are artfully presented, with many sauces made tableside by servers. Signature plates include diced chicken wrapped in cool lettuce leaves, orange-peel beef with chili peppers, and wok-fried scallops with lemon sauce.
Well worth the wait – P. F. Chang's at the Mall of GA was great: Food, service, wait for seating, everything.
We arrived at P. F. Chang's craving Chinese and discovered over an hour wait. Luckily they used a system by Queuent that called us on our mobile phones when seating was available. So even though we had to wait an hour, we were able to get our movie tickets and shop around the mall while we waited. When we were called, we were at the other end of the mall but the system let us delay by 15 minutes. When we returned to P. F. Chang's, they sat us at the very next table.
For being on an hour wait, the restaurant didn't seem that crowded but all the tables were full and everything was very smooth and easy to navigate. The server greeted us at our table and was very professional. We ordered drinks while we looked over a very well designed menu. The drinks were served within a few minutes and we ordered the Lettuce Wraps - A great appetizer and now one of my favorites.
I ordered the Singapore Street Noodles. This is usually one of my benchmarks for Chinese cuisine because of the simplicity of the dish yet ease for something to go wrong. It was excellent, not too gingery, noodles not over done, and vegetables were crisp.
All in all, a great casual night out for my wife and I. Highly recommended for a dinner + movie night. And being able to walk around instead of standing in a crowded restaurant waiting for a table, really made the evening.
Excellent – Great food and atmosphere. Sometimes there can be a long wait. Try the key lime martini.
Not your typical Chinese – Okay, so strictly speaking it's not what you'd expect when you see China in the name, but you can kind of guess you're in for something different.
The food is very good, and the service is great especially at the bar. Don't go there expecting a family meal while at the mall, but make a stop of it if you're looking for a good place to have a chinese/american influenced cuisine.
Not Chinese Food! – The food at PF Chang is not bad, but it cannot be considered Chinese food! Calling it Chinese food is an insult to all Chinese people. At most, it is Chinese-style cuisine. Yes, the restaurant has a great atomosphere and the service is nice, but this restaurant should not be considered a "Chinese" restaurant. The food, although not bad, is definitely not "Chinese" food.
