I was very disappointed with the service here. There was hair in one of the dishes that I ordered and when I told them, they completely denied it. The manager was extremely rude, arrogant and sarcastic. She even found the need to justify the situation by bringing back the strand of hair which was completely unnecessary. Why not just make...

This is one of the best places for Chinese in the Columbus area if you're looking for a combination of authentic food and a nice ambience. Their authentic dishes are dispersed throughout the menu. Some of our favorites are the beef tripe appetizer, the water spinach, the Shui Zhu fish, and the beef stew. The Shui Zhu fish is really... More

Having been to China many times and having a Chinese wife who is a superb cook, I have high hopes for finding a really good Chinese restaurant, especially in the Midwest.

It is pretty good for some usual dishes. A good place to have some delicious Chinese food on the weekend as it is not far away at all. The waitresses are not so active but just do their job. I would recommend Bamboo Pork, Twice-Cooked Pork and Three Cup Chicken. You probably want to have dinner there but not lunch.... More

We followed a craving for tasty Chinese and tried this place on a local recommendation. The interior would imply that large crowds are usually accomodated, perhaps on week-ends, but despite having some lovely decor, this room has seen better days, and the food was merely adequate, not what we were hoping for. Restrooms were in need of basic attention, like... More

Ten years ago, this was a really good Chinese restaurant. About five years ago, it changed hands. We tried. We stuck with them. We wanted it to be as good as it once was. But it isn't. Never again. There are plenty of good Chinese restaurants in the area. This isn't one of them.

Panda Inn offers a wide variety of Chinese dishes. The food is really tasty and not that expensive. The staff is also very friendly. Their Three Cup Calamari is one of my favorites. This is also open until very late in the night, since a lot of restaurants close early in Columbus.

Very good Chinese food. I would recommend the three cup chicken and beef short ribs. The wait is you usually short as well.
