Visited here whilst working in Southampton. On a £20 allowance I managed a starter, 2 mains and a side. Food was tasty and service was good. Was full of Chinese folk when I was there, so I can only assume it's pretty authentic. Certainly enjoyed my meal , would return.

Definitely one of the best Chinese places in Southampton. I've been there twice and each time it was delicious. I recommend fish from the water and tofu with shrimp. Staff was very friendly and responsive to my broken Chinese. Definitely going back.

This little restaurant with the dowdy frontage on Bedford Place is a little diamond in the rough. I eat there regularly, mainly at lunchtimes and was first drawn to it years ago when the local Judges started to frequent it (probably before cost cutting although it is very cheap and good value). I then noted a number of Chinese families... More

The offering for Chinese restaurants in Southampton is pretty poor and I would say this one is the best I've found so far. They have bothered with the decor and it does feel a bit more special than many around.

Often used the Panda during my trips to Southampton, tried a few but by far the best, food is very tasty and you are not rushed after your starter they will ask if you are ready the the main course, wash down nicely with Tsing Tao or Tiger. I never feel bloated after eating here which can be the case... More

I love the food here. It's without doubt the best Chinese food I have eaten and I can't recommend it enough. The staff are lovely and I go so often they give me a discount nearly every time - that's getting to know your customers! Great food, great service. As a restaurant, it's looking a little tired - but it's... More

Me, as a Chinese, I do like the foods here. My partner and I have tried many Chinese restaurants and takeaways in Hampshire. Panda does a great job on tranditional Chinese food. Price are reasonable (30 something pounds for 2 persons). We visited the restaurant almost once a month even we live in Portsmouth.
