This establishment used to produce better buffet style food. It is a good place to visit for the value, but not something you write home to Momma about. They need to have fresher food and then I think they would be above average.

Panda Garden has the best Chinese food in Cookeville. The buffet has many items including many seafood selections. The spring rolls are excellent. The sweet and sour chicken is very good as well. I often order take out from here and it's always promptly ready. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

They have a good selection of dishes, and the food is always fresh. The prices aren't to bad either. I'm a little biased as this place is a Christmas Day tradition for my family, but it's good any day of the year.

This is a great buffet. Perfect for a quick dinner or large parties. We stop here once a month and are very happy with the food and service. The food is good regular Chinese food no surprises. The frog legs ate excellent.

GREAT food. They restock the buffet constantly so everything is hot and fresh. Lots of shrimp styles, even crawfish and crab claws sometimes on weekends. Service quick and seamless. Very nice folks. Often very crowded with lots of families because it is one of the best bargains in Cookeville.

I was pleasantly surprised with this (relatively) small town chinese buffet. I've been to some really good ones so I'm always apprehensive when trying a new one. The freshness of the food was the best part, variety was fairly good. The sushi selection is sad but I did enjoy what rolls were available. I've had a lot better for the... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. It's perfect for families because it has a lot of variety. The sushi which is included with the buffet is ok - nothing fancy but I enjoyed it. If you want to eat some good Chinese food buffet style, this is the place to go.
