PEI WEI ASIAN DINER OPENS IN THE UAE

DUBAI OPENING MARKS SECOND MIDDLE EAST LOCATION FOR ASIAN FOOD RESTAURANT

Kuwait,  2ND April 2013: Pei Wei Asian Diner, the well-loved fast-casual restaurant with more than 180 locations in the United States, is now open in the Marina Walk, Dubai, marking the brand's debut in the United Arab Emirates.

The Marina Walk restaurant seats  142 people in a dynamic yet comfortable atmosphere where Pei Wei invites guests to enjoy the unique concept of flavor tourism, offering the cuisines of China, Japan, Korea, Thailand and Vietnam, all at one destination.  Freshly prepared, made to order contemporary pan-Asian cuisine cooked within fiery woks is its hallmark.

Pei Wei's expansion into Dubai follows on from a successful opening in Kuwait and echoes the success of its sister restaurant, P.F. Chang's which already operates in UAE and Kuwait. Both brands are owned by renowned US restaurant company P.F. Chang's China Bistro, Inc., who have  partnered with leading international retail franchise operator,  M. H. Alshaya Co.,  to expand them into the Middle East.

The Pei Wei menu features Asian-inspired dishes such as Japanese Teriyaki, Mandarin Kung Pao, Pad Thai and Spicy Korean, also offering a variety of small dishes including Crab Wontons, Hot and Sour Soup and Vegetable Spring Rolls.  Guests will be able to select the protein in the majority of the dishes, choosing from beef, chicken and shrimp. The menu also has a number of vegetarian options as well.

For added convenience, the Dubai location will also provide a delivery service to anyone living or working in the Dubai Marina area, so customers can enjoy the flavorful and original recipes at home, in the office or out at leisure in the Marina.

We are excited to be opening our second location in the Middle East in Dubai. The phenomenal response we've seen for Pei Wei in Kuwait is testament to the appeal of the brand and we are delighted to extend our footprint in the Middle East, commented Heather McIntosh, Vice President of Operations for Pei Wei International.  

Customers in the UAE can now eat in five languages, with food made to order using only fresh ingredients and authentic spices from the Asian region. Pei Wei offers an exciting and diverse menu together with a vibrant dining experience.    We look forward to welcoming customers in Dubai to the Pei Wei Asian Diner experience, added Jim Dunn, Business Director for P.F. Chang's /Pei Wei in the Middle East.
