The food was okay and not something extraordinary. They provide a large serving of dishes. So my advice is to order less number of dishes

We are all locals, but haven't eaten here in a couple of years. The pu-pu platter was greasy. The ma-la scallops were average. The Schezsan chicken was dry without any veggies. Just not worth going, especially with several Asian restaurants within a couple of blocks.

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.
