Wow, you can choose from Sushi, Chinese or Japanese! My son had Sushi, his friend had Chinese & I had Japanese. All three of us were very happy with our choice. Our waiter was very nice and accommodating. Huge selection, excellent food & reasonably priced!

I used to enjoy my meals here, but the last time I went I was not impressed with the food or the service. We ordered bok-choi and tofu. The waiter brought us cabbage and tofu. I do not want to pick hairs but bok-choi and napa cabbage are different vegetables. In addition, our waiter was not busy and just hanging... More

Unlike one of the reviewers, my husband and I found the owner's young daughter just charming and were delighted to be seated by her. (Special tip!) The food is tasty, service is quick and take-out is also very fast. Great Japanese selection as well. Often crowded with Chinese students, surely a good sign....

By far the best lunch bargain in town. Nice chinese lunch for under five dollars. Not much on atmosphere but if you want an inexpensive lunch it beats fast food by a long shot. Family run so you may be seated by a five year old. Priceless!

China Panda is REALLY good. Family owned and run with pride, they have something for everyone. They have typical American Chinese food, yes, and good sushi too, but also another menu for Chinese students and those in the know. That's where some of the more interesting choices are: great seafood, hot pots, all kinds of greens, etc. Try the crispy... More

Service was fine, food, to my wife and I, was somewhat bland. Definitely plenty of it, though, which college students will likely find appealing. The hot and sour soup was unusually savory but had no spiciness at all. Mongolian pork could have been Mongolian chicken for all I could tell. Again, it was decent, just not something that jumped out... More

This place has very good Chinese and Japanese food, no question. But the service is scattered and spotty, to be charitable. And please, it's not a great idea for the owners to let their kid run around the restaurant. Tacky.

My wife and I have made China Panda our go-to date night restaurant. The Chinese and Japanese menus are excellent, and their bento-box lunches are an incredible deal. Not to mention that it is the only place in town to get good, fresh sushi. And how. The "sushi boat" is a great option for groups who all want sushi and... More
