We have had many a lunch at Pei Wei while meeting with friends or eating out with colleagues or family. This place offers the friendly, casual atmosphere at the same time good food fast. This place has some similar menu items like my favorite restaurant P.F. Changs since it’s the sister concern of the other upscale chain. Here you place the order and pay earlier before you get seated, quickening the dining process, but still having a good dining experience
This time I was at Pei Wei for lunch with my good friend around the holidays. In spite of it being pretty full we got immediately seated after we ordered; but even before we got settled we were asked if we could move to a booth to accommodate a larger group of people. Since we obliged nicely, the management surprised us with crab wonton appetizers for being accommodative!
Our orders of Mangolian Beef with noodles and Mandarin Kung Pao Shrimp with fried rice came very quickly too. My Mongolian Beef was perfect and crispy with sweet soy sauce, scallions, garlic and mushrooms ; My friends Kung Pao Shrimp was very tasty with chile seared soy sauce, scallions, garlic, snap peas, carrots and peanuts while the shrimp were juicy yet crunchy. To go with the Asian theme we also enjoyed green tea with our lunch instead of soda.
The restuarant also offeres gluten free and vegetarian menu for people with dietary restrictions, hence its popular to larger audiences!
We loved the food and enjoyed the dining experience and even had to-go boxes too since the portions are pretty large and I was dining with my health conscious friend.
So it was a perfect afternoon with great food and dining experience and good friends.
