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.

This great looking friendly restaurant is always packed. It's the source of many Panda Inn's around the US And the Panda Expresses. The next generation continues to explore new recipes - for a awhile they got quite trendy -but now they have returned to a more traditional menu with some nice new touches. My husband loves the sweet and sour... More

Great food and great service. The panda beef is the best! Other entrees are your typical Chinese American fare. Nice casual atmosphere but also good for groups and special occasions. Sunday brunch seems really popular with lots of appetizing dishes.

This was a night out with our friends who know the owners personally. Food was fantastic. These are the people who also own all the Panda Expresses, although I don't think the food at the Panda Expresses meet up to the quality of this location. Highly recommended.
