Pei Wei serves up tasty, healthful Asian fare in cafeteria-style eateries. The hometown success story is part of the popular PF Chang's China Bistro Company, conceptualized by local entrepreneur Paul Fleming. We love the clean, casual atmosphere and wok-seared specialties offered at Pei Wei's thirteen Valley locations. The menu - a modest version of PF Chang's - is displayed on huge, colorful boards as you enter the restaurant. American Chinese is the theme here, with contemporary influences from Japan, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam. Place your order with the cashier for fast dine-in or take-away service, then grab your utensils, fortune cookies, condiments, and refillable beverages from the self-service area (the Chai and Mandarin Orange Green teas are terrific, especially with a few wedges of fresh orange and lemon). The food is brought steaming hot (literally) to your table. Cool Lettuce Wraps ($6.25) are the same minced chicken, shiitake mushroom, and spicy soy favorites offered by Pei Wei's parent company. Popular entrees include the aromatic Spicy Chicken Salad ($6.95), chile-seared Dan Dan Noodle Bowl ($6.25), Mandarin Kung Pao ($7.25-$9), and Pei Wei Spicy, the restaurant's signature version of General Chu ($7.25-$9). Noodle and rice bowls and signature dishes offer a choice of chicken, pork, beef, shrimp (signature dish only), or vegetables/tofu. Brown, white, and fried rice options are available. Chopsticks are kept handy in a canister on each table. Children 12 and under can select teriyaki, honey-seared, or Lo Mein Kid's Wei bowls, served with chicken and choice of rice or egg noodles ($3.45). Add a drink for just 50 cents more. Pei Wei's soft, thick napkins are ultra-absorbent and take care of any spills post haste. High chairs are readily available; baby changing stations are located in the large stall in each restroom.
