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.
unappealing dog food – after driving numerous hours to sample this acclaimed exquisite food, i found myself eyeing my chows puppy food as an alternative. i have sampled countless Asian eateries and I was expecting superb middle-class food, only to find myself force feeding this grub into my mouth and trying to flick chunks onto the floor to eliminate eating any more of this foul "food". The service was hideous and poor at best. Waitresses were beyond ugly and i swear dandruff or boogers had dropped in my pea soup. if one desires fine asian dining i would not recommend this place what-so-ever, I had stomach cramps for 3 days following and had to drink a lot of alka seltzer/pepto bismol and have my medications. If I was not a regular International traveser of the United States I could *ue them into oblivion but I don't have the time!!
Best service in Tucson – We loved our server, loved the person who brought the food out, and loved how good the food was. It is one of our favorite restsurants in Tucson.
Great Service but that's all – From the reservationist, to the server, to the manager, everyone was very friendly and the service was top notch at Changs. Unfortunately, the food was bland and unimaginative and the seating was very uncomfortable. I didn't think the prices were excessive but please, spice up the food! I took my dish (shrimp with lobster sauce) home so that I could add some fresh ginger and garlic to it, maybe a little pepper, salt, soy. The chair I was sitting in was so uncomfortable that I was squirming during the entire meal trying to get some relief from the pain it was causing in my legs. I ended up having pain in my legs all night and had to take a pain reliever to sleep later on.
I will definitely not be visiting Changs again.
Nothing Special – Very busy when we went and very expensive for what we ordered. It was not anything I would go back for.
We were there for a Christmas office party on a Friday night, which likely tripled the noise and crowd.
If you are amoung the group of many elitists in Tucson that enjoy overpaying for a meal and rubbing elbows with yuppies this is the place for you.
Mid-Week Lunch No Waiting – Three of us went to lunch in the middle of the week ~ lots of seating options, the waitress was very sweet and accomodating and not overly attentive. It wasn't loud where we were seated. The tea was fab, the food was very good, and the price wasn't extreme - since we were there for lunch. If you want cheaper dinner prices, try Pei Wei's, the younger sibling of PF Chang's... we had the slab chocolate cake with raspberry, which wasn't as moist as I thought it should have been--- try another dessert if you go.
Dinner That Always Great – I eat at PF Changs on a routnine basis and have not had a bad meal yet. My family who live in Erie, PA drive to Cleveland to eat at PF Changs after I got them hooked while in Florida and Tucson. The best thing about PF Changs is the variety of menu items and the consistent service and food! Go ahead and enjoy yourself at PF Changs!
Not bad, but not worth the wait – We called ahead and had reservations, but still had to wait 45 minutes to get a seat. We sat out in the hot sun, because there is no shaded area to wait. We'd have left, but my friend was dead set on eating here.
The food wasn't bad at all, but it wasn't very asian either. More like American, with an asian twist.
I didn't mind that, and the waitstaff wasn't bad either, but it was loud and crowded and expensive.
It wasn't worth the price or the wait in my oppinion.
