Our favorite chinese food!

The food is excellent! We have tried almost all of the food, and it is exceptional. We've been coming here since we discovered it about 10 years ago. Very good, friendly service. It is worth the drive.

Who knew until doing some research the non-asian fare and fast food mediocrity of Panda Express sprang forth from a group of restaurants named Panda Inn in the LA area. Personally i think the best thing that could happen for asian food in america is if places like Panda Express were to close their doors, they are an embarrassment to... More

Panda Inn is the best gourmet Chinese food we have eaten, anywhere! Whenever we are in Southern California its a must have. When in town, it's our go to special occasion place or whenever we get a craving for outstanding food.

Have been coming to Panda Inn for many years and I have never been disappointed yet. Service staff is very friendly and the restaurant has a clean, open look. Their dishes are consistently good, especially their Panda Beef and Walnut Honey Shrimp. The Scallops are also one of my favorite dishes. Great for bringing guests and host parties. They have...

When I found out this was the original restaurant to Panda Express, I was so excited to try it. I'm a big fan of Panda Express. We tried the Mongolian Beef, Honey Walnut Shrimp, fried rice & plain lo mein. We LOVED the mongolian Beef! It's my favorite that I've tried at a restaurant. Spicy, tender, more meat than vegetables.... More

I had been to the Pasadena location & I hoped this location was just as good. It was! We had the walnut shrimp, Mongolian beef, garlic noodles & orange chicken. All 4 were excellent so it's hard to pick a favorite. Portions are huge. Excellent food, good service, great value. We'd recommend it to anyone!

Restaurant is nice and spacious. Because we had an infant with us and a large group, we were escorted to a semi-private dining area. The portions are sized, so it was very convenient to order. All of their dishes were great. Service was fast and courteous. Price was very reasonable.

There are not enough words to express how happy we were in dining at Panda Inn. We loved the ambiance, and were greeted well on arrival. After being quickly escorted to our table, we were waited on quickly. The food was simply delicious and reasonably priced. Be sure to try the Mu Shu Wraps. Tasty and good value for 5... More

I have been going here for many years. I love their light tasting Mandarin food. I don't like to feel bloated after eating Chinese food. Our favorites are the Pan fried chicken noodles, upside down noodles, honey walnut shrimp, shrimp fried rice, Lemon chicken, orange chicken. Serving are very large and lots of left overs to take home. Their Sunday... More
