We used to use Panda Palace as our only Chinese place but the food quality has dramatically declined over the past 2 years. We only use this place in a pinch now since they deliver. Wish they would bring back their old chef and the quality of food they used to have.

My family was looking a Chinese restaurant in the area someone suggested this place. The staff is very nice. The place is ok. Smelled alittle weird. But the food. O. M. G. Absolutely horrible. Not one person in my party could even get through half of their plate. Crab ragoons. A mushy mess. Poo-poo plater. We had ordered 2 of... More

A nice family run Chinese restaurant that has had our patronage for many years. We have done both eat-in and take-out. Always can count on good food and bright smiles.

Very nice gentleman at register BUT the food is HORRIBLE. I'm sorry, but it is. Recently moved to area looking for Chinese food. Boneless ribs VERY DRY. They DONT put red sauce on. Only gave me maybe 8 strips. The pork fried rice was 99% onions. Made mistake with this one. Threw it all away.

This is my go to place for Chinese food in our area. Panda has been in Vernon for a long time. I usually dine in, and I like the tablecloth and real china. Servers are always prompt and courteous. Lunch menu is a great bargain and much better than any fast food joint. About the same price, but nicer tables... More

The food here has completely gone down hill. Bland soggy food. Gristle in the dark meat in my Panda Trio, couldn't even try to chew. Gross. I will not be eating here again.

I'm moving to Florida tomorrow so some close friends took me out to dinner. Panda palace has been around forever and it still serves large portions of fresh delicious food.

Everyone in my family loves Chinese food and when Joy Luck closed we were very sad. Someone recommended Panda Palace. First time we had take out it was good average Chinese food. The second time we got it there was a large multi-colored striped beetle in my rice. You couldn't miss it. Needless to say $60 went in the trash... More

Panda Palace had a small stretch when they had a chef change but now the original chefs that were there for the first 10 years are back and the food is delicious and back to the high quality that we know and love. Panda Palace is my palace! Great quality and flavor!
