"Pei Wei Asian - South Dale Mabry" Top 5 Page for this destination Tampa Restaurant Tip by Ewingjr98

Tampa Restaurants: 286 reviews and 570 photos


Pei Wei Asian offers very good Asian fast food, in a nice setting that feels almost like a real sit down restaurant. I guess the style--where you order at a counter, then the food is delivered to your table--is defined as fast casual, and is similar to Chipotle, Panera Bread, or Qdoba.

We arrived one evening and were surprised to find the Tampa Pei Wei restaurant full of young people, mostly teenagers and college kids. We ordered a few dishes-- I had the spicy Korean dish with beef, hot pepper sauce, garlic, mushrooms, onions, carrots, bean sprouts, and toasted sesame seeds. It definitely had all the right flavors and reminded me of my time in Seoul, Korea.

Pei Wei is owned by P. F. Chang's China Bistro, and they specialize in foods from China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and Thailand. All of the food is made to order, rather then pre-made like traditional fast food. The price are very reasonable, with nothing on the menu over about $8 or $9. The chain has a hundred or so restaurants nationwide, including 21 in Florida. They offer ordering online, with pickup in the store.
