there was apparently one opportunity for me to order Panda Gourmet via a delivery service. Sadly no delivery service will deliver PG to my area of town any more. Everything ordered off the Chinese menu was excellent. The Chinese- american broccoli beef was mediocre but I warned the person ordering to stick to the chinese menu - why wouldn't you.... More

..and what a surprise! I had gone several times in the past when I would be one of three customers... this time, however, the place was busy and not one table was free... ... the food is still the same tasty and splendidly hot Szechuan, though the menu booklet has changed to a more modern version with pictures, and the...

I ordered takeout from Panda Gourmet upon recommendation from a friend and they did not disappoint! I ordered the Spicy and Hot Chicken, Chicken Fried Rice, Mongolian Beef and Egg rolls. Definitely one of the better Chinese restaurants I have had in DC and it's reasonably priced. Word of caution - the hot and spicy chicken lives up to its... More

Good vegetarian choices. Tasty food. Very quick service. Large portions good to share or take away what's left. I really enjoyed the soup tomato and egg drop. Served in a large bowl to share.

The first time we went we enjoyed our meal. But came away not sure we ordered what we wanted because the wait staff couldn't answer our questions. The second time we visited, our waitress spoken English and we had a great meal. We will definitely return. Soon, I hope.

Family tour in DC and happened to find it coz it's quite near our hotel. It's alongside of NY Ave. so quite easy to find out. The restaurant is really native style in Chinese North-East food(Chinese Pizza and ShaoZi Noodle for special recommendation). and one more interesting thing is, per chat with the boss, they've provided 6000 pieces of Chinese...

This is the best Chinese food I've ever eaten and the folks with me said it's the best "Northern Chinese" they have had in the US and they have been to China. We all shared a number of dishes and all were outstanding. If you are in the area and like real Chinese food you must visit and partake of... More

Panda Gourmet is not for everyone, especially those who are not familiar with Chinese cuisine from the Mainland. Sometimes, one has to apply some degree of cultural relativism when approaching certain ethnic cuisine, or in this case, gastronomic relativism, and with this angle, I evaluated what I ordered at this eatery. The pork sandwich and lamb skewers were the perfect... More

I'm in my 60s and eaten in a ton of Asian restaurants over the years. This has to rank as one of the worst. The egg roll was way too much thick roll and very little food inside. This is the first time I've ever seen wonton soup made with beef stock instead of chicken. And I'm not sure what... More

I’d heard all the buzz about Panda Gourmet and, after determining it wasn’t an offshoot of the Panda Express fast food chain, gave it a try. Two tries, in fact. I’m not convinced it deserves all the buzz. It’s not in the most convenient location, as it is connected to a seedy-looking Days Inn on busy New York Ave. in... More
