MENU

Small plates, salads, noodle bowls, signature entrees with rice with Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese influences.

ATMOSPHERE

Booths and tables in a fairly unadorned restaurant in the shopping center at the northwest corner of Palmetto Park and Powerline roads. Pick-up service is a big draw.

OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE

The Pei Wei spicy ($8.25 with chicken), this chain restaurant’s version of General Tso’s familiar brown sweet and spicy sauce, made my husband happy with its little bit of kick. He was also a big fan of the minced chicken/cool lettuce wraps ($6.95). Though they were heavy on the soy sauce, it was quite fun to dish the chunky sauce — chicken, shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts and rice sticks — into the lettuce leaf bowls. The orange peel and sweet and sour (all signature dishes $8.25 with chicken) dinners had some vegetables and are dependable.

REASON TO GO

The menu is simple but with a lot of options. Basically choose rice or noodles and your variation of meat and sauce. Pick-up service is fast and easy.

SERVICE

You order at the counter, but this fast-casual restaurant has friendly, helpful servers.

NOISE LEVEL

On a weekday night, there was a low hum of conversation. There’s no problem hearing your dining companions.

KID FRIENDLY

None of the kids’ options included vegetables, so we went with sweet & sour chicken for our 2-year-old and had plenty of leftovers. Most kids will find a version of stir fry on this menu that they will like.
