You will not find fresher Chinese food anywhere. The service is well above average and friendly. Food portions are good, served quickly and well prepared. You cannot go wrong with their egg foo yong or anything on the extensive menu. It is located right across from Little Bay and close to several motels. Cleanliness is obviously important to the staff.

First time visit and impressed. This is the first restaurant in the area where the service was great. The food exceeded our expectations and the waitress explained everything to us. We will definitely go back.

Chinese restaurants seem to be a rarity in Texas. We lived in Rockport for over a year and always went to Panda Bay for Chinese. They do have an american breakfast buffet which we never had but I have heard great things about it. The staff is very friendly and always remembered my order. The atmosphere inside is so pretty...

You will find the staff friendly, good service and a nice clean atmosphere with a good view. They have a buffet, however when we dined they did not have the buffet setup and ordered off the menu. The presentation is excellent and the beef broccoli served with rice is excellent, A egg roll is included, but was not very good.... More

The best Chinese food in Rockport, TX. This was the last on the list and as the saying goes we left the best for the last. Not a buffet but more than enough food to put you in a food coma. I asked for no additional MSG, No problem. One of the best dining views in Rockport.

This restaurant is decorated very nicely and because of the other reviews I looked very closely at cleanliness. The restaurant was very clean, the tables were clean, etc.. This restaurant probably has one of the best views in Rockport of Little Bay. I had the lunch special which offered many choices at a very reasonable price and each item was... More

Well, we did eat here fairly often until I found a hair in my food. But, the real reason we don't go back is the food all pretty much tastes the same. The sweet and sour chicken for instance tastes the same as the General Tao chicken. Not impressed.
