Very good, but pricey

The best Chinese food in Buellton. Seriously. If you want better you have to go to Solvang, but that's three miles away. So if you want to stay local, this is it. It's always fresh, and I've never had a bad meal there. It's just pricey for the quality and quantity that you get.

Great family dining. Food comes out hot and quickly. Friendly staff. Owner, William, often stops by to make sure everything is good.

Ten of us from the Terry family enjoyed a wonderful meal at China Panda. The service was great as was the food, since there were ten of us I think we must have ordered one of every item on the menu. We all shared and tasted it all. All of the dishes were just how we hoped they would be,... More

Our hotel in Solvang recommended this over the chinese restaurant in Solvang. It was worth the 10min drive. The bbq pork chow mein and the mixed veg with shrimp were good and fast. Staff was friendly.

The staff were very friendly we were very full and took some food away with us. We picked 3 dishes for $8.95 each plus a large fried rice & beautiful egg rolls(spring rolls). Truly enough food for 4 people.

What is Chinese food without rice? We felt ripped off paying $2 for a tiny bowl of rice, after paying $12+ for each dish. To be fair the main dishes were quite tasty, with generous portion, if you don't mind paying $2 for a tiny bowl of rice, you might rate this place higher. If we go here again, we... More

We frequently go to China Panda with my mother, and we all like it. The interior is clean, bright and pleasant with a beautiful Koi aquarium. My favorite is Orange Peel Shrimp. I have this dish almost every time we go, and it is always excellent. The vegetables are cooked al dante, to our liking. The tables are covered with... More
