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

We had dinner at Panda Inn when we were in the LA area. The service was very good and the food was excellent. First time I had ever had white chocolate fortune cookies!

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

This restaurant has been here since the 80s and I'm very surprised that its still around. I love Chinese food so I'm very critical of the food quality. At best its average and pricey. Its better to be seated in the back and not the booth. The taste of the food is catered to the western pallet. Its a good... More

I got dinner to go from here nearly every night of my stay--I liked it that much! Even though I waited to order until I got there because it was so close to my hotel, my orders were ready quickly and not only were consistently good, they also have the best fortune cookies around. The Hot and Sour and Egg... More

This is walking distance from Hotel La Quenta - the atmosphere was very good and friendly - the portion was big for the price. The quality of food was very good and we enjoyed being served by a very pleasant waitress. Try the Mapo Tofu - it is excellent with hot and sour soup.

Went for lunch and had good portions. Had good flavor the price is a bit high and the seating is very weird with the semi circle booths. Service was not that great but to be expected from time to time not complaining about that. Def a good choice for a lunch.

I have been a fan of all The Panda restaurants since the eighties. Unlike so many businesses they have maintained their high standards. If anything the food is better. My favorites are the walnut shrimp and lemon chicken. We also love the Sunday brunch, no skimping on the more expensive menu items. Highly recommend.
