We Enjoyed a dinner at Panda Garden on a weeknight. The dinning room was very quite. We had 5 in our party (2 young kids). Everything we ordered was great and the dumplings were handmade. My favorite was the coconut chicken. We also had the cashew chicken which was filled with fresh veggies. The only negative is I wish they... More

I usually go for the buffet. Unlike other Chinese-style buffet restaurants, their food is ALWAYS fresh. They empty bins if they've been sitting a while even if there is still food left over to ensure freshness. The owners are always on-hand and personally come around to ask how the food is.

The food is great. They have an awesome lunch buffet but I noticed that a lot of the dishes were empty so I had to wait a long time for them to cook more.

The quality of food has declined over the past year or 2. It used to be my favorite Chinese restaurant, but the buffet food is often cold and old tasting.

This restaurant offered a yummy selection of foods (other than Chinese too) on their buffet at an affordable price. We were seated in a nice quiet location with a window to the area. Of course we tried most everything and were tooooooo full to eat too many desserts. Their Chinese dishes were good, but the selection was limited. Of course... More

This is the first bad review I have ever written. The people who work at this restaurant could be the least service friendly people I have met. My wife ordered some fried tofu dish, but when it came it was not fried tofu. Instead of taking it back and making the dish properly, the manager got into an argument with... More
