PF Chang --Disappointing meal

nuttie_cat | Jun 28, 2008 02:33 PM

I try to avoid chain restaurants but after the first meal at PF Chang's with their vegetarian lettuce wraps and asparagus stir fry side that was pretty good, I decided to go back. Big mistake!

This time around we tried the garlic noodles. It was terrible! It was a sweetish gloop with just no taste of garlic. We tried to check with the manager to see if the order was mixed up. He said it was supposed to have a sweetish tinge but he would have the dish made again if we wanted.

We said okay. The second time it was even sweeter! We just couldn't eat it!! Worse, the manager billed us for both the dishes and never even checked back to see if we ate any of the second version.

So in the end we had two plates of "garlic" noodles that we just didn't eat at all and had to pay twice for it!!!!

Their service was all about having a plastic smile and limited to "how was your meal?", without really trying to understand we were having a bad meal.
