P.F. Chang’s opened its Royal Hawaiian location in Honolulu, Hawaii, as an upgraded flagship dining destination. The restaurant was the focus of significant investment after recently completing a 6-month-long renovation, resulting in significant upgrades to design, decor and ambiance at the 10,000-square-foot site.
The menu features P.F. Chang’s most well-known dishes but also incorporates unique offerings, exclusive to flagship locations, including exclusive sushi offerings and specialty cocktails. Because this location serves a diverse clientele, the restaurant’s QR code menus will be available in multiple languages, including English, Japanese, Korean, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
The exterior of the restaurant is made entirely of puka lava stone, native to the island. Large windows and doors offer an open-air dining experience, weather permitting. Guests can enjoy two patios — a casual downstairs patio and a more private, exclusive upstairs patio. P.F. Chang’s iconic murals, hand-painted by Nyla Lee, will be on display with the main artwork featuring a famous Chinese proverb that translates to “be not afraid of going slowly, be only afraid of standing still.” Other murals feature characters that translate to “the gathering place.”
The flagship location is part of a brand refresh across the United States. P.F. Chang’s plans’ call for the chain to update all its locations by the end of 2022, including new music, lighting, decor, uniforms and menu presentation. Additionally, there are P.F. Chang’s To Go restaurants opening across the country, with more than 50 To Go locations opening in Colorado, Florida, Texas, New York, Louisiana, Nevada and Arizona by the end of 2022.
P.F. Chang's Royal Hawaiian marks the brand’s second flagship location, joining the Las Vegas flagship location that opened in April after similar renovations and upgrades.
