first of all, the definition of a bistro is 'small or unpretentious restaurant'. that is the complete opposite of PF Changs. prices are high and the environment is ritzy. yea, this place is packed every day of the week, but it's no wonder u find it at somerset mall. think of the people that shop there. i've been there to eat a few times, but not because it is the greatest ""chinese"" food. i'm 100% chinese and anyone who knows AUTHENTIC chinese food would laugh at anyone that considered PF Changs offerings authentic. for those fools out there who claim this is the best authentic chinese food they've eaten, you need to meet some REAL asian friends and find out what authentic means. every dish on the menu is americanized, for your information. us chinese people do not eat that junk. if you do go there, bring your credit card and point ur nose to the sky, cuz that's the only way u'll fit in. otherwise, go there to eat, and that's it. it's not the best, it's not the worst. i just think it's pathetic that caucasians can somehow make a million serving uneducated people food cuz they don't know any better.
Pros: romantic (kind of) atmosphere
Cons: high prices, snotty pretentious patrons
