This a sit down restaurant with standard takeout Chinese food. Because I saw duck on the menu, I thought I would get upscale dining like Hsu ' s in downtown Atlanta. The dishes were typical Chinese takeout dishes. No refills on tea. The tea was good. The food cost me nearly 30 dollars. I could only eat the appetizer. The... More

My boyfriend and I are always looking for a good new Chinese restaurant to try. We googled best Chinese in CT and this place came up on a few review sights with great reviews. We livr about an hour away but we decided to take the drive and check it out since it seemed like it would be worth it.... More

NOSTALGIA sets in as as I bite into a crunchy deep fried noodle dripped in savory duck sauce...along with this trademark delicatessen the only other consistency for the past 25 years, is the warm, welcoming, excellent customer service provided by Jack. With the introduction of a revamped menu, this establishment has propelled itself to the top of all time greats... More

Been to Panda House many times and Jack is always very personable and friendly. The service is usually very good, only once was it not so good, but we looked past that. Food is very good, always treated well here. Wish they made the Sushi bar as they promised years ago....

We always order the sweet and sour soup. It was different this time. And...not as good. I had the chicken with cashews, and I will not order it again. Very little chicken, and one bit was all fat. Didn't see the usual manager. Maybe Wednesdays are not a good time to go? I wonder if this was sold to new... More

By far the best Chinese food in the area. Two menus provide countless options and there is even an easy 7 step menu with a fixed price. Jack and his staff make you feel like long time friends. After dinner, our party of 7 was surprised with a delicious deep fried Oreo served on plates decorated with cartoons made from... More

Good selection but the bar leaves a bit to the imagination. Wasn't sure anyone really sat there. It was more like an office work space but if you are only waiting on food and having a cocktail, what the hell, why not. Good food so don't let the office space bar keep you away.

This is our go-to place for Chinese (and now Japanese and Thai) food, even though there are closer Chinese restaurants. Everything we have ordered over the past year or so has been truly delicious and the service is gracious and attentive.
