This Panda is not unlike any other Panda you may have already patronized. Although I will say it's footprint is smaller than some other stores. Located in the "mall" and close to other food options, I will eat here occasionally (read: when I have to). Orange chicken seems to be the most popular thing here.

We fed the whole family for less than $50. The staff is really helpful and quick. The line went fast. You're able to pick exactly the items you like.

If you want a quick meal with a Chinese touch this is the place to go. Cheap and quite tasty food. You have the choice of a vast amount of different platters, everything from orange chicken to chicken teriyaki. Value for money is high here, most definitely recommended.

My husband loves Panda Express! But, you know what? I like it too! Whenever we don't feel like cooking, or its getting later in the evening, we head over for a "fast food" that tastes great. We like to share the entrees, so will pick different ones we both like. Good on the budget too!

Cost was cheap only $20 for two of us including a soft drink. But food was salty, dried out, over cooked, generally YUK. I had seen adds for Panda express and thought we would give it ago, no thanks to going again.
