Great Food plus Mr. Dlimpio (Sp)

My first time to Pf Chang's I had no high expecatations I was hungry and in a bit of a rush. My mother was on borrowed time and I wanted to get back to her. Well of course there was a wait, I was on my way out . when I was stoped by i assume it was the manager Mr D limpio (SP) anyways he engaged me in conversation told what was going on . He found me seat I had a great meal and excellent service. For a chain resturant they gave you first class service with stlye. I'm Home now and life is back to normal, I will make ita point to visit my local PF Chan's

My favorite chain for fusion eats

I love PF Chang's. Yes, it's a chain with nothing too out of the ordinary on the menu, but I'm definitely not one of those super snooty foodies who only goes/appreciates authentic local restaurants. My favorite, which the staff always recommends and everyone seems to always have on their tables, is the lettuce wrap appetizer. For the entrees I love the double pan-fried noodles and the crispy honey chicken. There's always so much too choose from though and I've tried about half of the menu to know that pretty much everything is really delicious! Also, like I mention in the ""Pros"" section, the Asian Pear Mojito is my absolute favorite drink on the menu. It's also one of the only mojitos I actally like (I'm not a fan of mint drinks at all, but the Asian pear is deliciously subtle on the mint and stronger on the citrus side). Also, the Park Plaza location is great but there's also a PF Chang's in the Prudential and at the Northshore mall if you're looking (they're all equally great to me).

Great place to take your parents

PF Chang's is a family favorite when my parents come in to Boston for a visit! We always get the lettuce wraps, and ask to mix the signature sauce a bit spicier than normal. If you're here with little money in your pocket, the fried rice is less than $9 and there's always extras to take home. The sake is yummy, and cocktails in general are also pretty good.

Don't waste your time or money

P.F. Changs is what I would consider Chinese fast food. We ordered the VIP DUCK, which had no flavor and seemed VERY TENDER which is a sign that they used PROCESSED DUCK, which is ground up, compressed, then putting the skin back on. The lettuce wraps had nothing traditional with Chinese. The Shrimp with Lobster Sauce didn""t even come close to being the traditional MANDARIN DISH. What? vinegar at the table? what for? The only two dishes that were traditional and flavorful was the SHRIMP DUMPLINGS & the WONTON SOUP. P.F. Changs is also overpriced. Stick to China Town or your favorite local takeout.

Highly recommended for Take Out

I have to admit, I have never sat down at this restaurant. I always do ""Take Out"". That being said, it's hard not to miss the crowds waiting for a table. So if you go, plan to wait for a table during peak times.

More importantly, the food is quite good. Big fan of the Mongolian Beef, the Peking dumplings, the Shrimp dumplings, the Chicken Lettuce Wraps, and Stir-fried Buddha's feast.

The food is well prepared and you never have to wait for take out. It is soooo much better than the Prudential PF Chang (see that review).

The food is a little more expensive than most Chinese Takeouts...but in a lot of ways, I think it is worth it.

If you have a hankering for PF Changs, I recommend this location.

Great food!

I love this place! Living in Boston, its hard to find a great place to grab take out without hurting your wallet...(unless you want a pizza or salad) Changs is a great value and the food is consistantly good. Their lettuce wraps are to die for and if you like chicken, beef or seafood of any kind - you are sure to find a dish to satisfy...I love grabbing take out from here because the portions are good size...order a few different dishes and share...you will love it! Great if you are having friends over!

don't have to pay that kind of price for chinese food

went there few times mainly for after-work drinks, which are great. love the pear mojito to start off the summer. food... not too impressed since i'm asian. feel that some items (ex. potstickers) are just over-priced food that sometimes come with a fancier plate or presentation. service varies, as they're always sooo busy.

only thing that's been deterring me from patronizing is because i've heard some negative things about its owners (whom i heard are not asians). something that has to do with their discriminatory views against asians, whose cuisine ideas they are capitalizing on. what irony is that! i have nothing against high-end asian restaurants (quite on the contrary, i cheer for their success!), but if anyone is trying to reap off benefits by/from/while taking advantage or discriminating against a certain racial group, then there's a problem. i have not been able to verify the truth in these rumors, but i became guarded upon the first hearing of the news. i hope what i heard was false, otherwise i'll definitely start a full-fledged boycott against this place.

Terrific chinese restaurant with nice atmosphere

I cant believe some of the other reviews. This a great restaurant. I know chinese food...we have some
great places in Boston but t his one is consistantly good. Menu is very imaginitive and food always well
prepared. Very surprising this can be done in a Chain with few chinese workers. It has a nice atmosphere with a great bar...looks very fancy so I can entertain here. Prices are also cheap. Located next to Four Seasons and Park Plaza Hotel. When I first went to the place and then found out it was a national chain it was hard to believe. Trust me...this place is well worth visiting.

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.

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!

OVER RATED

given its location, PFs food fails to compare to numerous restaurants a block away. i find the food not-authentic and the atmoshpere was very unappealing. for the price they charge, i expected a lot better service than was received. the waiter seemed over his head and paid our table no attention whatsoever. i'd rather save some $'s and go to chinatown
