The service wasn't good, the waiter was rude, the food was cold and nasty and the food had no flavor and the worst thing about that place they told me that I had to tip them 20% of my bill. This place suukkksss I don't recommend it !!!!!!

This restaurant was fairly good. The prices were high for lunch specials but the food was decent. I asked for extra onions in my vegetable fried rice and the waiter said, "No. It's premade." I was a little taken aback with this answer since the rice has to be reheated anyways so why can't you add onions to it?? Anyway,... More

Been going to China Pan since it opened. Noticed a slip in quality when it changed ownership a couple of years ago, but the quality has really gone downhill recently. Old favorite menu items are great on some days and barely recognizable on others. Standards like veggie fried rice are not consistent. Greasy on some days and burned the next.... More

I got caught in a snow storm coming home from Boston. I spent the night in Farmington, CT. The front desk recommended China Pan for dinner and brought me down a menu. The snow was coming down as it was almost white out conditions. I ordered a dinner special along with a side of broccoli. The person who took my... More

I have eaten at China Pan many times over the last few years, and it still holds up as the best Chinese restaurant with so many vegetarian options in the state! The extensive menu makes it easy to order something new every visit. The service is always punctual and reliable. About the only negative thing I can say is they... More

Decent sushi, especially the tuna roll. I ordered steamed chicken and steamed rice, prepared perfectly, this place has some of the worst bathroom I have ever seen in a restaurant. Many truck stops are cleaner. This makes me wonder about the cleanliness of the kitchen. The service was above average

We are always looking for that strip mall Chinese restaurant that is a "found treasure" like Pearl's in Orlando. All too often we are disappointed and this restaurant was another disappointment. Apart from the waitress, who was an engaging Chinese exchange student, the dining experience left much to be desired. Basic menu items such as egg foo young smelled bad... More

This has to be one of the worst Chinese restaurants we ever ate at. The food was tasteless and not fresh. The service was poor with a condescending waitor. Don't waste your money or your time to try this restaurant.
