Yuk! This is the third time in a row I've had a terrible experience at PF Changs, so today I'm gonna bitch about it. I know, I know, snake bites you ones and it's the snake's fault, snake bites you twice and it's your fault. So what if the snake bites you a third time? I guess that makes you a real tool!
First of all, it's Kung Pao chicken, folks. Kinda hard to screw that up when the freakin Panda Express is selling truckloads a day. I needed three glasses of water to wash that stuff down tonight. Ew. And how do you forget to put dressing on an ahi tuna salad? Or was it actually that bland WITH the dressing? They gave me some gloppy peanut concoction to put on it when I complained. It then tasted like a giant plate of gloppy peanut concoction. Hmph.
After the kitchen screwed up my order, and the server (bartender, actually... we sat at the bar) totally ignored my guest all evening, the manager actually had the hutzpah to answer a telephone call when I was in the middle of telling him about our crummy evening. Balls! I walked out on that jerk, obviously he didn't give a........
Long story short: there are so many REAL Chinese restaurants in the Valley that serve it up better for less money (try the Great Wall on Sherman Way - divine!), why would any moron in his right mind go to PF Changs? Wait, don't ask me, snake bit me three times, remember?
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.
Custom order not recommended. – Went expecting great food, service and experience but was let down. The waiter took our order without writing it down, which I thought was impressive. We ordered a chicken meal and asked for Bok Choy and Eggplant to be added, We both got white rice, which I nicely let go, but it was served at room temperature and was hard in spots. When the regular meal came we dug in and noticed that there was no Bok Choy or Eggplant. When we were able to get the waiter's attention, too about ten minutes, we brought the missing to his attention, which he quickly ran off to take care of, but when the order came, again it was missing something, the Bok Choy. We had also ordered (I believe it was) the green curry chicken. The chicken seemed slightly undercooked (chewy) and had very litle flavor. We decided to let go as we just wanted to finish and go home. As we prepared to leave an employee, not a waiter, (seemed more of a supervisor), asked us how our meal experience went. My guest was ready to go all out but I spoke up first and told him all went well. I just wanted to go home.
Best Chinese Bistro in California – Great food. Their lettuce wraps are an excellent appetizer, wor wanton soup is also great and enough to share with up to 4 people. I've tried almost everything on the menu and all of it is delicious and unique. Drinks are good too and many are quite strong.
Great chinese! – Great food- the mongolian beef is wonderful as are the Dan Dan Noodles...spicy with a cooling effect from the cucumbers. It is a nice place for a date and i have always enjoyed dinner here. The Mai Tai's are delicious and STRONG. BE CAREFUL.
Big Disappointment – The room was sterile, with hard "15-minute chairs", and noisy. Extremely slow, indifferent, service by a bored waitstaff. I've had better Chinese food at Panda Express - it was flavorless, and was cold by the time the waiter got around to bringing it to table. The much talked about lettuce wraps were not much more than a very mildly seasoned hamburger meat in a tired lettuce leaf. The drinks were small and watered. Anyone who likes the food here doesn't really like Chinese food. One visit was MORE than enough. Never again!!!
My Favorite – I think PFChang is a really good restaurant I really love there "Hot And Sour Soup" its really good and highly recomended!!
