Stopped in for their lunch smorgasbord. Everything was average. Same food, same everything as any Chinese restraint that does a smorgasbord in western Canada. Service was slow to none existent. Is like they forget all about you. Even when trying to pay the bill, standing, waiting. Nasty lady. Could get treated like dirt anywhere in Richmond, didn't need to travel... More

Always get the self serve buffet. Food is alright. Only decent place for self serve Chinese buffet in FSJ. Staff is usually pretty friend. Good value for your $

As with other similarly named restaurants this too has a buffet style Chinese food self serve food bar. I ordered a plate off the menu and was quite satisfied with the quality and quantity.

We have always been satisfied with Mama Panda's food. We mostly take out though. I have been to China and the food is comparable overall. Mama Panda is the Canadian version of Chinese cuisine. Don't expect anything "authentic" is what I am saying.

Very clean restaurant, a little above average food. The Service was nothing special, easy location to find.

Terribly quality food will leave you wanting to use the bathroom, rather than come back for more. Poor service to boot.

The daily smorgasbord has a very good selections and has great flavour. The staff is very nice. The new renovations are refreshing and you will always run into people you know. It's great for take out too.
