My youngest son and I were in San Diego for a couple of days and we ate here for dinner twice. We love Panda Express to begin with and we weren't disappointed. The staff was also very helpful as they even changed the TV to allow us to watch the Sunday night football game! Nice portions for a Panda. Two... More

The food was average. For the price, it was okay. They serve the food like buffet style, the portions are average.

Waiting at the airport, we both got hungry. Didn't want fried food, so went here. Requested, and were given, freshly cooked vegies with noodles. Hot, fresh and so tasty. We shared a bowl between us, excellent value. They even gave us free iced water. Would certainly eat there again

Like any other Panda Express, good food, good service. Good location, close to hotels, airport, Sea World, etc.

It's a bit tricky to get to if you are using your smartphone; it leads you to the wrong side of the strip mall. But just drive around the other side of where Subway is and you'll find it. The place was clean and the food was fresh. We'd definitely go back!

Since I discovered Panda I cannot get enough! Great quality Chinese food and an affordable price. This place was just as great as the rest!

Arrived late in San Diego and looking for a quick diner option, we ended up at Panda Express. Food was OK, cheap priced, and fast. Most people had take-out, but was also possible to sit there and enjoy the meal. I like this chain, and overall the quality is OK, especially for the price paid.

To be honest,Panda Express is one of the best food choices that I'd tried in USA.When you visit USA,you must eat there.Foods are quite simple,affordable and delicious.My favourite is a noodle served with sweet&sour jumbo shrimps or sweetfire chicken.You can build your personal plate in order to customize your perfect.I loved this restaurant.

Got the fried rice. Really bland and lacked flavor. Poor selection as well, would have liked to have seen sesame chicken, general tsos etc. The orange chicken was okay, but the mandarin chicken did not taste good to me- can't put my finger on why. Will not return there again.

Thank zpiggy
