Panda Country Restaurant has the best food ever and the friendliest staff. I eat here almost weekly. The House Special Chicken is my favorite along with a cup of Hot & Sour Soup. I eat here so much they know my order by heart. They are in a shopping center with plenty of parking.

Menu has lots of options and all are good choices. Lunch specials daily and wonderful 3 flavor sizzling rice soup. If a dish is noted as "spicy" can request milder (or hotter) for preference. Good size portions - each dish good for at least 2 people+. Staff is wonderful - very attentive and have good sense of humor. Fortune cookies... More

In a shopping mall. Good food, Good Price, Good service. What more can you ask for. $48.15 for 4 of us. Which would be $12.03 a person.

I have been coming to Panda Country for over 15 years. The food is wonderful and a wide selection of entrees. The staff is very friendly and the service was great. It doesn't take long for them to serve your food. The Hot & Sour soup is the best and my favorite dish is the House Special Chicken. You can... More
