    cool, unfriendly

    Ordered vegetable chow mein to go. No smile from either the woman behind the bar or the guy going to the kitchen for the food. I waited at the counter and asked the woman for a glass of water, She said ok like I was bothering her. I quickly drank the water and pushed my glass towards her but she ignored it instead of filling my glass. The chow mein is nice, unlike the servers, but it had too much soy sauce. The great think about it is it's cut into thin strips and little if any cornstarch is mixed in. Let's all go there and tell them we want happy, happy, happy

    Worth a visit

    Panda is a decent "middle ground" when it comes to choosing the more inexpensive Chinese food restaurant over the ones that charge $25 for entrees (that in the end taste not much different). It is the quality of the noodles products that changes, not to mention, the purveyor of the poultry, pork and beef, between the various price points of Chinese restaurants (at least that's what one would expect and hopes happens). Have eaten at Panda a couple of times and have found the dumplings and noodles to be good (not thick and chewy like at the "corner" Chinese restaurant), the pork spareribs were more meaty and tasty, and the entrees we ordered, mostly from the "specials", were plentiful and good. Will admit, had a "coupon" which drove our decision to eat here, but then again, the slightly higher price from the "corner" Chinese for the better quality texture and taste makes Panda worth the visit even if there is no "discount" available.

    Sorry, no more.

    I've been ordering from Panda for years and it has steadily gone down-hill. It's better food if you actually go there - but the delivery food is disappointing Most of the things I've ordered look like objects from the trash can. And, I don't like to think what my General Tso's chicken was made of -- but I'm pretty sure it wasn't chicken. I'm sad about this. I wish they'd get better.

    Fast delivery. Pretty unexciting food.

    Delivery was very very fast! One of our meals was good but boring. Tasted very plain. The other meal wasn't good at all. Did not taste good by any means. It was thrown out. We won't order again. But hats off to for the service!

    Overpriced and Unimpressive

    I was looking for a change from my greasy, inexpensive corner shop and my superb chinese joint which unfortunately is only open business days. Panda delivered promptly. The $35 bill (including tip) was only the first insult. The general tso's was your standard chicken product with no flavor and not much more can be said for the pork lo mein. I had to saturate everythiong with soy sauce to make it palatable which I had to dig out of my fridge bc they only included one packet. The egg roll was nice but not for $2.50 each

    Great Food- Fast Delivery

    I recently moved to the neighborhood and came upon this wonderful place. I am very picky when it comes to my Chinese food, as it is my all-time favorite cuisine, and this place delivers on all counts. Great choices across all counts- including the healthier options. Their pork fried rice is amazing! I get delivery from there all the time and it is incredibly fast, and the people who answer the phones are lovely- and the delivery guys are always very pleasant. If you are looking for good, quick, authentic Chinese delivery- this is your place.

    Not what it was

    I have lived in the hood for over 30 years and Panda has had consistently the best food. I take out from there at lease twice a week. Something happened recently. The food is awful. I have confronted the owner and he told me they have a new chef but he defended the cooking. The chicken is like rubber, the wontons are so thick and they taste like glue. I am sad to say I have to find a new restaurant after over 30 years of continuous patronage.
