We still remember how excited we were for P.F.Chang’s opening in Qatar. We had been waiting for it since a long time. And were so happy when it finally opened it’s doors in the Villagio Mall. We were there on the first day of it’s opening. We don’t even remember how many hours we waited for our table but it was so worth it! We enjoyed great food with equally good service that day.
Last week we were there back again. It wasn’t very crowded this time. As we walked in we were told that we will have to wait for a couple of minutes. We sat down to wait but observed something interesting. Quite a lot of guests arrived after us, in smaller as well as larger groups, who all were given a table as soon they arrived. While we were still sitting at the side, waiting for our table to get ready!
So, finally after around a 20 minute wait our table got ready. We were escorted towards the table and menus were presented. We were excited to see the new “From sea to table” menu. It included some really appealing dishes. Once we were ready to give order, there was no one in sight to take our order. We asked a staff member who was passing by to send someone, but to no avail. Finally after a 15 minute wait, our server arrived to note down our order.
From the main menu we ordered Hot and Sour Soup and Dynamite Shrimps for starters. Both the things came in quick. And were delicious, as expected. They were gone in no time!
For the main course we ordered, Hot Fish and Chang’s Spicy Chicken, from the regular menu. Both the mains came with rice. Hot Fish was crispy fish slices cooked in Sichuan Sauce with stir-fried vegetables. Chang’s Spicy Chicken was sliced chicken cooked in sweet and tangy sauce.
But the star dish for us was the Hot and Sour Fish with Zucchini Noodles, from the “Sea to Table” menu. We are so glad that we ordered it. It was so flavorful yet well balanced. The combination of hot and sour Fish with Zucchini noodles worked so well. We absolutely loved it!
So, overall if we talk about food, everything went amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the food. But were equally disappointed by the service. We hope to experience better service next time!
