Grand Panda has been at its Lyons Ave. location for as long as I can remember. They have another location in Saugus now. GP is hands down one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. I always get kung pao three ingredient, usually at lunch because they offer great lunchtime specials w/ huge portions. We take out of town guests and they... More

It's hard to find a decent Chinese restaurant in Santa Clarita, but I think Grand Panda is one of the best! The price is right and the food is always great. Our sever had a cute sense of humor, he made our dinning experience a lot of fun. I'm so tired of all the chain restaurants in this area so... More

We were here visiting relatives on Christmas. Luckily, we had reservations for 5 people at 6:30. Without that, we might have waiting 30-60!! Very popular restaurant with charming wait staff! I wouldn't recommend the orange peel beef (my favorite) as it was saucy and sweet......neither of which I have ever had on this dish. The combination seafood/noodle dish was excellent... More

We've eaten here many times and it is always good, fresh food. The servers are so happy and fun and it is an excellent value. The beef is tender as us the chicken. Great place

For a quick dinner and the friendliest staff, this is the place. They treat you like royalty. The food is always hot and spicy. Great atmosphere, for a chain restaurant. I visit weekly. San Francisco has no comparison. Proportions are perfect for the hungry hitter.

We were visiting from Northern California and we are used to the quality of Chinese food we get in San Francisco China Town. We weren't expecting much from a local restaurant in Santa Clarita. We were very pleasantly pleased. Every dish was excellent with large quantities of meat and perfectly cooked vegetables. I would have liked slightly more intensity in... More

The food is really good! my hubby and I ordered the BBQ Beef, wonton soup, shrimp sizzling plate, and lettuce wrap!! Beef was really good! Shrimp was amazing! Wonton soup--we ordered for 2 and it was too small, I wish they gave a bigger bowl, and wonton tasted like imitation, some kind of ground meat inside! Lettuce wrap was almost... More

I have been to Grand Panda several times, and each time I go, I think to myself, "I have to come here more often!" Yes, it is that good. The service is wonderful, the food is always delicious, and it isn't very expensive either. I look forward to going back, in the near future.

I may be one of the few detractors on this one. Stopped for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. They appear to do a great business. Their prices are remarkably low and their portions ample. Everything tasted very good, and we were initially impressed with all but the demeanor of our server. A short time later, as we continued on our... More
