Good food, friendly staff

We love Chinese food! Having spent a great deal of time in China we know what we like. Grand Panda is as close to our northern Chinese experience as possible (though here it is less spicy). Grand Panda is our "go-to" restaurant in Santa Clarita!

We enjoyed a Luke warm bowl of Hot Sour Soup served with stale oil soaked won ton. The Mu Shut was great made at the table with just the right amount of sauces. The fish was fried, fishy and just not flavorful or good. The rest of the meal was passable but their are better restaurants in the area including... More

Grand Panda is our 'go-to' neighborhood Chinese restaurant, not only for 'dine-in' food, but also to order 'to-go'.

I've lived in the Santa Claritaarea for over 15 years, and only recently went here for lunch with my son (who's going to China soon). The food was great, and we couldn't have asked for better customer service. Our waitress (from Taiwan) guided us to the best choices, gave my son all sorts of tips for his travels, and provided...

Grand Panda is the ONLY Chinese restaurant in SCV that my family eats at. Growing up in NYC, and dining in Chinatown regularly I find it difficult to find good Chinese food but Grand Panda never disappoints! We love the three flavor sizzling rice soup with shrimp, scallops, chicken, snow peas and the sizzling rice slipped in table side. Other... More

Entire family loves it! We haven't had one dish we didn't enjoy. Kids ask to go all the time, their favorite is the "chicken soft noodle" (aka chicken chow mein)

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
