15 years ago this was a good place with decent food. Too much MSG and too much sugar in the food. Best thing is the cheap price.

We like to come to Panda Garden, especially for lunch. It is not very large, (only about 30 selections), but it is always fresh, and the management is diligent to put the finest quality food out on the buffet We have watched them cutting cases of fresh green beans for the buffet, and sometimes they will have cabbage as well....

Our family likes this place very much. The buffet is a good price until about 2...Dinner is not bad price just higher. We enjoy the takeout menu, and often do that. They have good choices, and tasty. It is a nice place.

Though there are better Chinese buffets in Lancaster city, this one beats other options (notably the one in Ephrata, yuck) in the area. Decent selection, was very fresh during our lunch. Good service, clean, low price. For $7 you're not going to get sushi or seafood other than fried shrimp. The bourbon chicken was especially good.

Panda Garden is a standard Chinese restaurant offering everything one would expect. They have a small buffet, which is perfect for lunch. During my visit I had some great peanut chicken and walnut chicken (something new to me). The food was hot and fresh. Our male greeter could have been a bit nicer, i.e, not walked away from us and...

I would see this restaurant packed all the time so I figured we'd try it out one night for dinner. The only good thing about this place is the Ice cream and that's pretty package from Hershey foods. All the food was horrible I love Chinese food but I couldn't find anything to love about this food no matter how... More

Looking for Chinese food in Pennsylvania Amish Country? This is the place... My family and I ate at Panda Garden late in the evening in August 2014, after a 7-hour drive. Upon arrival, we found that there is a buffet for $10.95 per person or you can order from the menu. We opted for the buffet. However, being late, the... More

Up till about a year ago we were very happy eating here, then things changed. Now when seated the server advised you that "if any of the buffet pans were empty to let her know and they would make fresh". Now I can see that so as not to waste food at the end of an evening but this was... More

Okay, I read all the reviews and wonder where people eat that they think this is great. It's not. The people are cheap, they only put out food when the tray is empty, no spareribs, I never heard of a Chinese buffet that doesn't consist have spareribs. Who charges for hot tea, they do!!!! When you walk in, they all... More
