“Good food and service--typical PF Changs”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Saturday lunch with my son. It was unexpectedly crowded for nearly 2pm so we had a brief wait. Lettuce wraps were good as always. We both had the lunch combo which includes soup or salad--kung pao chicken and sesame chicken. Good sized portions that were freshly prepared and hot. They don't have the old mini-desserts in a glass anymore but do have small portion desserts available. We enjoyed the chocolate peanut butter crunch. Service was very good overall. Only thing that was not optimal was when the lettuce wraps arrived less than a minute after we got our soup. Not sure if the timing issue was in the kitchen or with our server, but was not a big deal. There are many non-chain Oriental restaurants in Charlotte that offer a unique dining experience and are a better value than PF Changs, but the lunch combos are a good value and the experience is generally reliable with good food and service and a lot of menu choices. This PF Changs can get quite noisy and make it hard to carry on a conversation when crowded given the open ceiling with exposed duct work.

“Best chinese food ever!”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

This is definitely the best Chinese food I have had outside China. Service was rather fast, servings rather large - nothing to complain about whatsoever. But the taste and quality of food was what really made this dinner so special! Highly recommended.

“Slow service, below average food quality.”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Went for lunch. Appetizer took a long time to arrive.. probably 20-30 minutes.. meals came shortly after that, but then the salads arrived after the meals. Maybe this is how they do it at this location? 2 at our table ordered honey chicken, lunch portion. One serving was twice as much as the other (one was 5 pieces, the other was 10 pieces). Questioned the waiter and he said it's based on weight not volume.. Managed stopped by and we asked him and said the same thing but he'd get some more to make up for it - they then bring a plate that had more than the other 2 plates combined. I had the lemon chicken. Chicken was dried out and tough on one half while the other half was plump and juicy... Waiter was extremely friendly, but slow on the service. For the price I expect better service and better quality food. Never had this issue at their other locations.

Great location, good food, and FABULOUS service. They even mailed my husband's sunglasses he left FedEx for no charge (without hesitation). Thanks so much James York!
