This place is actually called Panda Garden. It's pretty decent, considering the location and the very run-down condition of the building. The service was brash and off-putting, but whatever - it would probably be as bad or worse at a roadside fast food joint, which is most likely what you are trying to avoid if you are looking at this...

The Thai place was closed, so we opted for Panda Garden, as it is now called. About 7 tables were occupied, plenty of space was available. It was a bit after 7:30 pm. most people had probably eaten already. When nobody acknowledged us standing there, we eventually seated ourselves, but the guy behind the counter nodded and gestured us to... More

I had the walnut shrimp, and I got more than I could eat. Service was good, and the price was right. The interior could use a little sprucing up, but I would go back if I was in the area.

This is not a fancy place, but welcoming all the same. There is ample parking outside and a nice homely feel, but the inside feels more like a diner and is clearly in need of a bit of a renovation. The menu is pretty simple but there is enough to choose from, including a variety of pork, chicken, beef and... More

Great food for a small town! Paper wrapped chicken is bomb, and I like the style of fried rice they have. Good prices, good portions, great taste!
