SquareMeal Review of P.F. Chang's Asian Table

1

"GOOD"

Anyone who has ever tried to find somewhere to eat in the less cosmopolitan parts of the United States will have come across P.F. Chang's (280 branches and counting), which makes the mega brand’s first European outpost a good fit for the touristy hinterland between Leicester Square and Covent Garden. But it merits a look even if you're not a homesick American – and it already has the crowds of international diners to prove it. Interiors are stylish without being intimidating – the feel is upmarket canteen, with very nice lighting – and food that arrives lickety-split quick will see you in and out in time for the theatre or cinema. Some of what we ate was great – zippy salt-and-pepper prawns and fall-apart barbecue ribs were as good as you’d find anywhere – and some of it was pretty average: wok-fried shrimp noodles and a chilli-and-garlic ‘Chang’s chicken’ were something most home cooks could knock up themselves. Mostly, though, the likes of plump pan-seared dumplings and sticky chilli aubergine are Far Eastern greatest hits done to a good-enough standard for the mid-range prices. It’s open for breakfast and brunch, too – think smoked salmon and boiled egg bao – while you can make the most of the late-night opening over barrel-aged cocktails in the LP-lined bar.

The first UK outpost of the American chain P.F. Chang’s is here, just on the edge of Chinatown and competing for business. Well. On a Wednesday night in summer, the height of the tourist season, it was quiet. Decked out in dark wood and soft lighting, the restaurant itself is attractive and the atmosphere is ok. The staff were a bit hit and miss. My friend is a strict veggie and when she asked if the dishes could be amended to include tofu, the waiter told her no and just to order some sides. There is a lone veggie main dish of grilled vegetables for £9. Really? We asked for the manager, who was lovely and he accommodated her needs. But, the food was incredibly disappointing. Mediocre is the best superlative that I can apply. I ordered the Dali chicken, a Sichuan dish that apparently had a sauce. To call is a coating on over fried chicken nuggets would be generous, more like a smudge. The vegetable spring rolls were a little doughy being slightly undercooked, but the red chili tofu was very nice. The best part of the meal was the egg fried rice, which isn’t saying a lot. Do yourself a favour, stay away from the cocktails. The ones we tried were absolutely undrinkable, play safe and go with a G&T. Finally, the bill came to £80 and I was disappointed to pay it. You can get a much better meal in Chinatown (if you know where to go) for less money and enjoy it more.
