Civilized Chinese Food - second to none.

This is not your typical Chinese restaurant. It is NOT crammed. It is NOT noisy. Waiters Don't throw plates on the next table when they set it up for the next guests. This is civilized Chinese food.

Great Chinese food and decor, with a full bar and even private large 8 to 10 people rooms. Have never been disappointed. Walnut shrimp is a must along with the Mia Tia's....

Found this restaurant today for lunch. So far the hot and sour soup and the salad have been good. The combination shrimp, chicken and beef in a garlic sauce is coming, taking a while with the lunch crowd. Nice and clean place with a big panda glass window. Recommend it.

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.
