Pei Wei Asian Diner in Culver City---- UGH!!!

I know it's owned by PF Chang's. I was attracted to the "idea" that all the food was cooked fresh. WRONG! They get points for having a gluten free menu option, but my sodden potato starch coated chicken was far from "fresh". More likely reheated from frozen. And reheated in gooey, super sweet sauce.
All I wanted was stir fried chicken without wheat or soy, fresh veggies and maybe all in a lettuce cup. Is chicken, veggies and a bit of heat too much to ask? Apparently so. The veggies were fresh, but that's it. Other meals at our table were too salty, too sweet and very mediocre! C'mon folks you can do better!
