P.F. Chang's China Bistro, Inc.'s 40-plus restaurant chain, operating in 19 states, owes much of its success to founder Paul Fleming's unique idea of pairing oriental cuisine with American-style service. At the outset, when he opened the first of the restaurants in Scottsdale, Arizona, Fleming broke with the traditional Chinese restaurant format. With his collaborator, chef Philip Chiang, he devised a comparatively limited menu that featured far fewer dishes than the menus of typical, full-service, Chinese restaurants. Incorporating an American steak house dining style and a formidable selection of wines and cheeses, P.F. Chang's offers such additional oriental restaurant anomalies as espresso and cappuccino. Although P.F. Chang's China Bistros are stylish in decor, displaying motifs from the Ming and T'ang Dynasties and hand-painted murals, the dishes are moderately priced, partly because one of Fleming's aims was to provide high quality but affordable Chinese food for "the masses."




PF Chang's Revamped Menu

P.F. Chang’s China Bistro Inc., with its new menu debut Tuesday, has put renewed emphasis on its scratch cooking in each of its 211 domestic restaurants as well as its particular ingredient sourcing.

From website videos of the farms where it gets ingredients to menu covers that deconstruct dishes down to their simplest form, the company is highlighting how each of its domestic units highlights in-house preparations. The company is also working locally at farmer’s markets to feature the brand and new menu items.

New additions with this week’s menu rollout include: 


  • Hunan Dragon Wings - Hunan spice, chili jam, sesame seeds, pickled vegetables
  • Cauliflower Tempura - Farm fresh cauliflower, sweet-spicy gochujang sauce


  • Wok-Charred Brussels Sprouts
  • Long Life Noodles


  • Singapore Firecracker Chicken - Black pepper garlic sauce, fresno peppers, onion 
  • Wok-Fired Filet Mignon - Sliced 8oz. filet, black pepper butter sauce, rustic potatoes, onion, lime-garlic vinaigrette
  • Long Life Noodles & Prawns - Crispy prawns, garlic egg noodles, roasted chili peppers, chopped black beans


  1. Now menu looks more attractive outlining more dishes and variety is finally added. I am going to visit this place soon.

  2. Change in the menu is fabolous. You must keep adding new recipes to the menu. I am really happy to see this change and i am sure people would also love new recipes.
