The Chinese buffet has a great selection and offers a quick place to go for lunch. If you are not into the Buffett you can order off the menu - the war wonton soup is one of my Favorites.

The food was good. We ordered take out to eat with family. The service at the front desk of the restaurant was okay. We felt like we were bothering the lady when we asked for the paper plates and cutlery we had paid for.

Have only had one bad take out meal in over 25 years. Service is the best in this restaurant. Rod runs a tight ship. Love the food. They have recently changed their smorg menu and is doing more seafood. You have to try the hot pots :)

I went to Mama Pandas a month or so ago (for the buffet) and it was mediocre at best. The staff are very friendly, the sweet and sour pork and various meats were okay. I figured I'd give it a second try, and ordered take out recently. It was disgusting! Flavorless and overcooked chow mein, chop suey that was mostly... More

Love the buffet they have, the best for Chinese food in town. Always friendly staff, especially Rod. Good variety of different dishes, all marked so you know what it is. Clean, which is important to us.

We had lunch buffet at MP and we enjoyed it very much. The service was good and the buffet was great. You could not beat the price. Worth dropping in for lunch.

This Chinese Style Restaurant would rank a one star if it were not for the great service, so that is the pro. Now for the Cons: The Buffet: the food is ready at 5:00 pm, so that means it is cooked up in the kitchen at about 4:00-5:00pm and then it goes into the stainless steel self serve trays buffet...

We had a great surprise supper for my sister's birthday. We had siblings travelling from out of province including us and this was an excellent place to meet. We had reserved for a group of 14. The tables were prepared and the service was great.
