I was feeling lazy and decided to get takeout from Pei Wei. A new Pei Wei just opened near our house. Unfortunately, I probably won’t be back again.

Sriracha is a new item on the menu. I always like the spicy flavor of Sriracha sauce. This dish is made with spicy sriracha sauce, garlic, ginger, lemongrass, red onions, green bell peppers, long beans, pineapple, tomatoes, Thai basil, and cilantro. I ordered it with vegetable and tofu. It tastes just like vegetable and tofu sauteed with sriracha sauce. That was it. No other flavor, just spicy sriracha. It wasn’t great, but since I like Sriracha sauce, it was acceptable.

Thai Coconut Curry was a big disappointment. There were barely any coconut curry sauce, and my veggies had a bitter burnt taste to it. I didn’t like it at all.

For the price, you do get huge portion. But the portion doesn’t matter much when the food tastes bad. Sorry, Pei Wei. I gave you a chance, and you failed.

  1. Just a heads up, only the dishes with the green leaf next to them on the menu are vegetarian when made with vegetables and tofu. I don’t know about the Sriracha dish, but the Thai coconut curry and most of their other entrees are made with pre-made sauce containing chicken stock. I know this because i talked to a manager one time to see if they could make the other dishes vegetarian and he said they couldn’t because of the sauce. Also yeah, their food has always disappointed me.
