Great Customer Service – I took my sisters and mother here for a special girls night out prior to a show. FANTASTIC customer service. We called because we were late for our reservation and they were very understanding and were able to seat us within 10 minutes of our arrival. Our waitress was friendly and extremely competent. The food was excellent. The lettuce rolls were recommended by several people, and now I know why...yum-o! The wine selection was great and the mixed drinks were not weak. I will be going back soon with my husband, I know he will love it as much as I did!
Worst chinese food in Boise, Idaho – This is the worst chinise "hot and sour Soup" I ever had. Beef with broccli was very strong with soey sause - not good atall. The fried rice was too oily and loaded with leftover stuff, such as beef steak and etc. My observation, no chinese worker and no chinese clientel in the Boise, Idaho restautrant. Service good. There is no need to make a mix of Vinegar, musterd,... at the table. For good chinese food the cook knows best about the taste. The dish must be prepared to taste the best.
My favorite restaurant – My wife and I absolutely love this place. Perfect from appetizer to dessert. Ever since I ate here I can't eat chinese food anywhere else (especially the fried food cantonese places)
The wait can be long but on the upside they have a nice bar if you can't plan ahead and get a reservation. Sometimes we end up just eating at the bar if it's a really long wait. The outdoor seating is great in the summer too. I even proposed to my wife out there :)
My menu choices 80% of the time(I do mix it up every few visits) Lettuce wraps and fried peking dumplings to start. Lo mein combo and Kung Pao scallops for dinner. If can stand a little hot and like scallops at all you HAVE to try these. All the desserts are fantastic but the Banana Spring Rolls are to die for. No matter how full I am I always order that and somehow manage to eat my half.
Gotta run, just writing this review has me craving some Changs ;)
Good for dinner before a show – I am a little surprised at the large amount of negative reviews.....Sounds like most of the issues are service related and not so much food related.
We go here when we have show tickets (2-3 times a year or so) and really like it. The lettuce chicken wraps are really good....I usually get the shrimp lobster sauce (which is nothing like it is at fast food restaurants) and my husband LOVES the sweet and sour chicken. The only thing that is a little annoying is that they refuse to change the page on the menu with their beer choices. Everytime we go and order a beer, we get the same answer "that list is a little outdated". Well then, update it.
Other than that, I would recommend it. Its not fine dining, so as long as you don't expect it, you should be pleased.
Worse than Chinese take-out – This place had horrible food. I believe that they are trying to make chinese cuisine fancy by changing some key ingredients in traditional chinese dishes. For example, their duck sauce tasted like honey. We wasted 50 bucks for three dishes. We went out elsewhere after. Not recommended. If you want good chinese food, just stick with the quick take- out restaurants.
Chinese Fast Food – I am definitely not a fan of the style restaurant that is barely half a step above the fast food restaurant business (ie. Applebee's, Cheesecake Factory, etc.) and P.F. Chang's is just another to add to the list. After waiting 90 minutes for a table for two (we ended up eating at 10.30pm), we had flighty waitress who continued to forget what we had ordered, requests for drinks, etc. When we finally were able to eat, it was like something I could buy in the frozen foods aisle at Shaw's. Everything was fried (which, in authentic Asian cuisine, is rarely done), oily and overly processed. I can't deny that the prices were good and some of the flavors were great, but the food in general didn't seem at all fresh.
Also, the restaurant itself is very large and therefore extremely loud. Definitely not for a quiet night or date.
Typical Chinese – While I agree that this place is great for a chain restaurant, there are much more authentic options out there for Chinese food. Spend some time and look around for better options--I promise you, they're out there.
Can't go wrong – I have visited a few of these around the country and theyre all just as good as they other. Consistantly good food, great prices, fast. Order a bunch of dishes and share. Great martini list. Mongolian beef, chicken lettuce wraps, orange chicken, noodles, and the spicy egglplant!!! We always get the banana spring rolls. These dishes are more of a contemporary asain cuisine, not authentic Chinese. Good luck getting in on the weekend evenings. They never took reservations before, but I think they started taking them or at least call ahead. Its still a long wait. Nice modern atmosphere.
good for a chain restaurant – The food list is fun and inventive and the atmosphere really makes the restaurant. try their Mai Tai, it is delcious
Excellent "Upscale" Chinese food – If you're in the mood for table cloth Chinese food, this is the place. I've eaten at the PF Chang's in Las Vegas, Columbus, and Boston, and all 3 were excellent. Try the Mongolian Beef!
