If ever you were skeptical about a chain restaurant delivering great food and great service, P.F. Chang’s in Waikiki will lay those fears to rest. A two-tiered, highenergy bistro with indoor and outdoor seating at the edge of the Royal Hawaiian Center, P.F. Chang’s creates Asian-inspired dishes in a northern style Chinese Wok; an age-old technique that uses a 900-degree flame to create unique, smoky, caramelized flavors and crispy textures.
East meets West with selections like P.F. Chang’s Garlic Prawns, gently cooked in a rich garlic butter sauce, accompanied by a pickled pepper slaw. To the regional fusion lover, this is comfort food without the carbs—it’s heaven. Also try Chef Tate’s favorite, the shrimp with candied walnuts, savory and sweet, or the Oolong Sea Bass. “Everything is delicious. You really can’t go wrong,” he said, offering us a large portion of his fried rice (yum!).
