I go to Panda when I'm tired and want to eat something with a fork. It's a chain restaurant, so chances are good that if you like it in your local area, this one isn't much different. Expect lines, especially during peak season, lunch rush, and after 4pm on weekends (that's when the ski resorts close).

There are not many options for Chinese food in Truckee and this is the best. This Panda Express is very busy, so the food is always fresh and they are generous with the portions on the family feast.

Just like Panda Express elsewhere....generic Chinese food that is greasy and limited in flavor. But it's quick, convenient and reasonably priced.

This chain has pretty good quality control . I have never been to a bad Panda. This one was fast and the food good. Lots of people in and out. There was someone cleaning the whole time we were in there. It was spotless. Panda has just added brown rice for a healthier fare.

Great variety, fresh, and very flavorful. We expected a typical fast food and it was much better than we expected.

went to the location in/near Sunnyvale. It is quintissential chinese fast-food. The place was clean, service was friendly and very quick, which was good since I had a flight to catch. The food was hot, the rice was cooked very well considering this is a fast food place. Rice is one of the most important elements in good chinese food,... More
