After a couple of years since I've been to the original Panda Inn in Pasadena.I grew up in Pasadena and I have been going there for years, but haven't been back for awhile. So, I went back to try it and bring back great memories. It wasn't quite the same as before, but the quality of the food made up... More

Despite the plethora of Panda Express places throughout Calif and HI, this was a fun restaurant to go back to. Their food is consistently good.

We ate at Panda Inn because we enjoy Asian cuisine and it was within walking distance of our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and the atmosphere and discovered that Panda Inn is not the average Asian food restaurant. Fresh ingredients were used in our Cashew Chicken and there were plenty of fresh vegetables (bok choy, onion, etc)... More

We've been going to Panda Inn in Pasadena for years and they never disappoint! The food is always exceptional. The wait staff is very efficient but they could work on being a little friendlier. Our recommendations are the won ton soup, the pork rib appetizer, the sea bass and the sweet and sour chicken. The portions are generous and there... More

Hit this place for dinner. Had the Walnut Honey Shrimp while my friends dined on the Orange Chicken and Broccoli with Beef. Good atmosphere and high quality food. Would stop in again!

This restaurant was clean and family friendly. We loved the Sunday brunch. There was a large assortment of delicious dishes to try, sushi, soups and desserts. Mimosas and mai-tai's were also included. Topped off with white chocolate dipped fortune cookies, we would definitely eat here again.

Overall, my family felt right to dine in this restaurant just outside the Universal Studio. We're glad to find that it has nothing to do with Panda Express, and its menu is very rich. The three dishes that we ordered are much closer to Chinese food than the items offered at P.F. Chang. The price is about right. I'm also... More

The original in Chinatown as worth the drive from any point in Los Angeles county. Now it's Chinese corporate food. While I admire the rise to success as a brand, the food is average. The oils to fry egg rolls tastes used, the noodle dishes are more like soupy canned oyster sauce found in Asian markets in Alhambra.
