Placed in a very good touristic location (near Art Institute of Chicago, Milenium park), the restaurant offer good food at more than affordable prices. Portions are generous, and basically there is no wait time.

We used the subway (L train) to get around Chicago which is cheap and easy to use. For Panda Express we got off at the station Adams/Wabash, the fast food restaurant is just 2 min away, very convenient.
