Eat Pei Wei and WAY PAY later!.
Used to LOVE this place. It was like getting that PF Changs taste at a better price and without the hassle of the mall.
That was then and this is now. The last time we ordered, we were unimpressed. Having been weekly or more regulars, we were very disappointed at how the quality had fallen off.
This time was the pits. Greasy, cold and soggy-noodled lettice wraps to start. Sticky Pad Thai with last-week's shrimp catch (very fishy taste) is probably what sealed the deal on my stomach issues 10 minutes later.
The Mongolian Beef was fair, at least.
It is like they have new management or chefs or owners. How can you go down hill so fast. Sucks, 'cause we really, really used to like this place. Guess it's back to the mall for the real Changs.
Okay on carryout, Not dine in.
This is near where we live. We order take out from time to time, but two blood pressure rising dine-in experiences we won't be doing anything other than take-out. For dine-in, the food took forever, the place was insanely noisy, and it wasn't even so good that it was worth the long wait.
As for the take-out, the food is okay. This last time though I went over 10 minutes after they told me it would be ready - and had to wait another 10 minutes. Probably going to find another take out place.
Delicious food and great price!. I love Pei Wei! My husband and I enjoy eating a Pei Wei once or twice a month. I always get the Orange Peel Chicken or the Asian Salad. The taste is perfect...not too salty or sweet. The amount of food you get for the $ is great. Bring a jacket though....its always cold inside!
Not Pleased. I have finished my lunch from the Pei Wei Asian Diner located Little Briar Creek Lane in Raleigh, NC. I ordered the Pad Thai with Beef. It was very, very, very, very (I can't stress this enough), VERY, salty and the beef was seriously overcooked. I ate a couple of bites was eventually unable to complete my meal because of the extremely salty taste and the overcooked meat. I am an avid lover of Pad Thai, but unfortunately I can not add this dish from this restaurant to my favorites. Please do not go to this place if you suffer from high hypertension because they are very heavy handed with the salt.
P F Chang +Fast +Less Expensive -Service.
If you don't need the whole P F Chang "experience", the food is just as good (IMHO better), cheaper, faster.
No ambience, if anything it's noisy, a little obnoxious.
Service is good, but not amazing. Take out service people are VERY helpful. We'll do that again soon!
Food is phenominal for the price.
Bad Quality Food. My husband and I ate at Pei Wei recently and were very disappointed. It's like a fast food PF Changs, but not nearly as good. My hot and sour soup and Vietnamese rolls were absolutely horrible, and my husband's Mongolian Chicken was below average. For the same price, you can eat at an authentic Asian restaurant with much better food!
