Good value

Among all the fast food options, this was the best. We were very hungry and tired, and we were looking for a fast meal. The ffod was good for the same price than a hambúrguer.

Good delicious chinese food, if one is craving for chinese food, pandan express will satisfy your craving. However, they could have more varieties of food to satisfy more people.

Fast "chinese" food, everything pretty much tastes the same, alot of frying going on...quality varies, now you have to choose 3 entrees and I have a hard time choosing between fried chicken and fried something else.
