An unpretentious building but nice inside. A very typical Chinese restaurant with classical decorations & art. The waiter was formal but nice. You could tell he took great pride in what he does. We had the slippery shrimp, orange chicken & wanton soup. The soup was under done and the wontons were also under cooked and heavy. But everything else was good.

Very good chinese food and the service was very good too. We ordered vegetable rice, kung pao chicken, vegetable chow mean and the hot braised green beans. Everything was excellent.

The food here is still the best, but one wonders why the restaurant only has three or four tables filled at meal times, both dinner and lunch. I think it may be the abruptness of the woman at the front desk. I ordered a takeout of slippery shrimp, green beans and rice, and got instead beef with broccoli, green beans and rice. The woman at the desk yelled at me when I called to let them know. For $17.50 for slippery shrimp, I would like to be treated nicely.

Hidden gem in East Pasadrna, I have been here several times and am never disappointed! The food is always fresh and delicious, and the service is good. Quite a variety on the menu to choose from. Their signature dish, Slippery Shrimp is always a go-to item when dining there. Will be back!

i have yet to try anything here that I don't like - that said, we are vegetarians and really like the vegetarian lo mein and kung pao tofu (yum!!), we had come back from Wo Hop in NYC and wanted eggplant w/black bean sauce, although it's not on the menu they are happy to make it and it is delicious as well. prices are a little pricey for a Chinese restaurant and the ambiance isn't as nice as Panda Inn, but it is delicious and that is what one ultimately wants, right?
try this place, you'll like it!!
