We were quite disappointed in the meal. The wonton peanut sauce appetizer was doughy. The chef's Special Chicken dinner was monotonous with frequent fatty or tough chicken parts. It came only with a bowl of plain white rice. There are multiple other Asian restaurants in...More

Or any night of the week is a decent night for Panda East. The food is pretty but the scorpion bowls are even better. The service is on point, especially with all of the college students on Thursdays and Fridays.

I like this restaurant for good Chinese food with great prices. We enjoy it as a family. It is sometimes difficult to communicate with waiters.
