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

A small group of us had a delightful meal at the Panda, The food was spot on the nail wiry an excellent crispy duck. I have been back since and again the food was first class. Panda is a quaint little place that you may over look but it is well worth a visit.

I have been going to Panda in Southampton since 2002 when I moved to Southampton from London. The owner is the chef and his wife runs front of house. The food has been delicious for all this time and attracts many local Chinese families and students (always a good sign), there is a special Chinese menu which has some delicious... More

I have never gone to China, but I imagine if I had, I'd have been eating food like this. I first went by accident late on a Saturday night and have recommended it to several people and been back six times. Great location in town and not too pricey. Decor is an acquired taste but I think it adds something... More

The food is really nice, hot and fresh as it should be. The service is first class and everything is reasonably priced. It is refreshing not to have all the hassle of the eat as much as you like on a price affair, which never really works well in my opinion. The decor is pretty awful, but that really doesn't... More

I've been to Panda several times over the years and always had a good experience, it has always been good food at a good price. BUT ... Went last night as a group of 12, which was pre-booked a week ago. It took ages to get drinks as the staff were not overly attentive or easy to flag down. The... More

Turned up asking for table for 10, no problem they said. Obviously a problem for them. Waited 20 minutes before being asked for drinks. Another 15mins to get drinks after constantly reminding staff we were still sat there waiting. Over an hour later we were brought a starter. Staff seemed to be runnuing around more concerned with the take away... More
