“Worst Panda Express”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Worst Panda Express experience...food tasted like it had been sitting for a very long time before being served... even found a hair in my orange chicken. Couldn't finish the meal and wouldn't go back

“Your typical Panda experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Panda Express doesn't pretend to be anything other than a buffet style, chinese fast food outlet. The food is predictably even if not noteworthy. Don't go here if expecting a Chinese restaurant experience. It's not. It's just predictable, always-the-same Chinese food. Not bad but nothing special.

“It's a Chain, for Pete's Sake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

But like all Pandas, reliable and good value. I appreciate the low-carb alternative of veggies instead of rice or noodles. Nice outside eating area.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The staff were very friendly and the portions were much larger than I am used to. The staff felt that one of the items I ordered was 'old' and they made a new wok for me.

“Chinese: Quick and Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

The kung pao chicken dish was very tasty. I prefer when the food is made to order, but this buffet-style restaurant seems to move the food so it was fresh. Good service and the iced tea was refreshing.
