Superstition location OVER PRICED, SMALL PORTIONS – I purchased To Go a Moo Goo Gai Pan and a Sesame Chicken yesterday. So much is wrong with PF Changs. First, the amount of food was not worth $30.00. Second, the Sesame Chicken is noted on your menu as "spicy". Not even close...it actually had NO flavor. Last, the Moo Goo Gai Pan sauce was actually water. Absolutely no flavor, no sauce was added. It was tasteless and awful. Consider yourself warned.
P.F. CHANG'S – First time to PF Chang's, I had a table in the bar that was wobbley. My server immediately noticed it and suggested he get a swegde to fix it. I didn't have to ask?!
I had the Kung Pao Scallops with Brown Rice and a White Wine. It was absolutely scrumptous! The scallops were plump and flavorful -- seared on the outside with tantalizing sause yet tender and meaty inside. The scallops aren't the skimpy pieces you get at Red Lobster either! You get a full meal here!
I finished off with a desert of rasberry cheesecake with iced coffee. The manager tried bto refill my water and I told him, "No, it's not necessary. Jorden fixed me up with my coffe and I'm absolutely fine!"
Great food! – This is not going to knock your socks off, but if you want to play it safe and know you'll get some interesting, tasty Chinese food, this is the place.
Average menu, for palates that have never eaten chinese before. – Sigh. This is it? A crowd fave? What I wouldn't give for some real Szechaun right now - some tea smoked duck or even some Hunan Long wang Lamb. Hand made noodles or green onion pancakes. Anything. Anything Chinese at all.
Lettuce wraps? Sockeye salmon salad? I think I'm going to cry - isn't there one good chinese restaurant in this city of 3 million people?
Great selection of excellent food – My family loves PF Chang's for the fantastic food quality, preparation and service. The Vegetarian choices include the very best tofu ever. The new shrimp, carmelized walnut and melon dish is out of this world.
MMMMM yummmy – I've eaten at a ton of Chinese places and few even get close to how good this place is. The service there has been good all but one little time I was there, but I forgive em. Everybody has a bad night sooner or later. Otherwise, I've always had great food, friendly service, and a great time there. There is a secret there that makes them great that all other restaurants should learn and follow.
I have to agree with other reviews here... – It wasn't spectacular. It is a nice atmosphere and romantic though. I love the way it's decorated, but the food is what you should judge. The food looked good, but was ordinary. The meals were filling but the portions were still small for the price. If you do happen to go there, park in the garage behind the shopping center. When you see the restaurant on Mill, turn left at the intersection then right at the next street. That's the easiest place to park.
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.
Up until a couple of days ago I went to P F Chang's for the first time. It seemed to of had nothing but good raves. WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL? I didn't think it was all that great. The food was tasty but the portions were really small for such a high price. The servers were quick to wait on you but not that friendly. The surrounds were a nice touch but to loud. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it. You can get a lot more for you buck and stomach if you go elsewhere!
Not all others say it's cracked up to be – The food is okay. It's not wow good. Just okay. It is pricey though. Not super-expensive, but not worth what they charge either. It wasn't like real chinese (such as C.FU.GORMET on warner) or even a tasty inexpensive meal like Wang's on Ray and Kyrene (a personal favorite). Wang's is much better food and a complete meal for lunch at $6.00 is great. Nicer atmosphere too. I have been to P.F.Chang's twice. The one on University and the one on Chandler blvd. Both just didn't quite meet my standards. I don't know what the hub-bub is about. It's standard fair with nicely dressed servers. It's up to you, but I go for the food. :)
