Great quality and freshness for the money. Good size portions, too. Not a destination, but I dig it.

Ordering online from Pei Wei was so easy, except there are so many dishes that sound great that it was hard to choose. The prices are so reasonable we ended up getting too many appetizers: wonton soup, wasabi crunch roll sushi, and crab wontons. The crab wontons are basically crab rangoons but the shell is thicker, there was more crab... More

This Peo Wei location is clean and the service is efficient. The food is the same as other locations. We tried the new Thai chicken lettuce wrap and it had an overpowering fish sauce taste and smell. Probably a dish that I would not recommend nor try again.

We had high expectations. Maybe Sarasota finally had a decent Chinese restaurant. A couple of friends had recommended it. No. Their food does even resemble Chinese food. We tasted but couldn't even eat it. Greasy, Americanized, badly simulated Chinese food. Terrible in ambiance, too. Will not go back.

I had the Pad Thai and found it almost impossible to eat because of the spiciness. My eyes teared throughout the meal. The menu is very limited.

I've never written a bad review but WOW worst service ever! We still had our first course dishes along with our main course dishes on our table when they finally got around to asking about dessert! We told the waiter there was no more room on the table for dessert but he still didn't get it. The food? Well this... More

The first time I ordered the food was very tasty and well displayed. Then as time went on, I started getting stir fry red peppers that were burnt and the smell of burnt soy sauce was on everything. I tried many different items, from the spring rolls to the spicy thai peanut with shrimp. I wanted to love it,...but it... More
