Flo's Asian Kitchen is a contemporary Chinese restaurant with 3 locations in the Phoenix region. The modern fare is influenced by Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Southeast Asian, Japanese and Indian cuisines. The chef travels around the world for inspiration for new & creative dishes.
The food at Flo's is decent enough and appropriately priced, however, it does not have a truly authentic feel, but rather a commercialized chain feeling like P.F. Changs. If you are looking for a fun night out with some great food, give Flo's a chance, just don't expect a true Mom and Pop Asian dining experience.
The menu at Flo's includes a variety of appetizers, soups, and entrees inspired by Chinese, Thai, Asian, Japanese, Indian, and Vietnamese cuisine. The menu is pretty large, and thus, there really is something for everyone. The portions are gigantic, so it's best to split a few appetizers and plates amongst a large party.
Must try appetizers include the Lettuce wraps, available with a chicken or veggie base, crispy spring rolls, and the delicious Egg drop soup. The complimentary crispy wontons, served with a spicy dipping sauce, are a great accompaniment to the appetizers. The egg drop soup was hot and fresh with a perfect texture. The lettuce rolls were really tasty and the sauce was perfectly seasoned. If you like the veggie lettuce wraps at P.F., you will find that these are pretty similar in taste.
A variety of family style sized dishes give you the opportunity to mix and match for a little taste of various foods. I recommend testing out the Shrimp Fried Rice, the Indian Curry Vegetables, and the Mixed Vegetable Stir Fry. The fried rice is delicious here, seasoned enough where you do not have to drench the rice with loads of soy sauce.
On a side note, the presentation of the food was excellent. I loved the cute matching dishes they used.
Pricing at Flo's is very affordable, especially considering the very large serving sizes. Happy Hour is offered daily from 3-7pm, and features most appetizers at half price.
The service here is the typical friendly and attentive standard that you find at most of your basic chains.
The setting at Flo's Scottsdale is very modern and appealing. This particular location is in a Strip mall, so it has that template chain vibe, as opposed to an authentic look and feel. Regardless, the restaurant is clean and attractive, despite the lack of unique touches.
Flo's is a good pick for anyone looking for decent, P.F. Chang's quality food in the Scottsdale area. This particular location is found within the Scottsdale Promenade, a beautiful outdoor mall. If you need a quick bite to eat and like the vibe, pricing, & food at P.F. Chang's, check it out, especially during the great Happy Hour deal!
