Best In Southampton So Far

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.

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

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.

Today was my 2nd visit having visited here with a big group of friends a few months ago. The quality and variety of real Chinese food was fabulous. It's such a shame that people come in asking for yeung chow fried rice, sizzling prawns, sesame prawn toast. .... Come on guys it's 2014 not 1974!!! I have to say the... More

I work near here and I suppose the slightly dated facade put me off originally, but after hearing some good reports and spotting how popular this place was with the local Chinese community I decided to dine here last week. We certainly weren't disappointed. The service was right on the ball, quick and efficient. The food was much better than... More

Worst place I have ever been. Together with a colleagues we decided to dine at Panda and I strongly advise people to check out what you are eating. A hair in my portion of rice and once I showed the waitress she took it back to the kitchen, coming up with exactly the same bowl of rice with no hair... More
