SO FRESH & SO TASTY
Start with tempura green beans with tangy dip. Had Mongolian beef and lemon chicken with broccoli floweret. Great with white rice. Very fast service on a busy corner so you can sit outside and people watch. It started to sprinkle while we were seated outside and a hostess was right there asking if we were ok. Of course we were, that's part of being in Hawaii.★★★★★
Their happy hour is AMAZING! Generous size apps along with the sights and sounds/people watching of downtown Waikiki. What a great atmosphere! ★★★★★
The chicken lettuce wrap is great!
Mongolian beef is prepared perfect and delicious!!! My wife and I dine at PFCHANGS at least once every other month here in Waikiki and we're never disappointed with service or food.
