good attention to detail

While I have never seen more than my table and maybe one more occupied during a dinner service, the food and service are great. I understand the lunch is superb, just haven't had the time in my schedule to go.

Just ate my lunch here and decided to eat the buffet. Even though its not the biggest but it does have enough. The owners made you feel like family.

My wife and I went to eat PG around 10 times, I believe this is the best Chinese restaurant in Bangor area. Every time when I visit Bangor this is my first choice for Chinese restaurant. How can you get a great buffet in 6.95!!! Recommend to try the fried rice and Spring roll. The owner is friendly and it's... More

We were not impressed with their food at all. We remembered it as being much better, but this time was quite disappointing.

After reading the reviews here on Panda Garden, I thought I would give its lunch buffet a try. I had eaten there once before for dinner and found it too pricey and average tasting. We arrived at 12:30 pm for the lunch buffet and got seated right away. However, we had to wait for 10 minutes to get the plates... More

Panda Garden is one of the only Asian cuisine restaurants in Bangor and the greater Bangor area of Maine that I can always depend on to have an enjoyable, excellent quality meal. My family and I have regularly eaten at PG about once every month for the last 5 years. We always go on Sundays to enjoy the lunch buffet... More

When in Bangor we always go to the Oriental Jade but a reviewer of that restaurant indicated that the Panda Garden was better. I find that when it comes to Chinese food everyone seems to have their own preferences. Anyway, this time we gave it a try. It it not much to look at on the outside, hardly stands out... More
