Our most favorite Chinese restaurant in Knoxville - both for meals and their buffet. Prices are very reasonable, food is very good, you get large servings and the staff is very friendly. While the luncheon buffet is small compared to other Chinese restaurants, the food is freshly cooked and doesn't stay long on the buffet. Take out service is very... More

We order take out for work every other week or so and have always been pleased. Large quantities of food for a reasonable price.

I have never had a bad meal here. Tastes are very consistent on every visit. Not a big buffet, but good food. Seating is not abundant, and is first come first serve.

The food is very good. We usually get our meals to go, but they do offer a buffet at lunch. The restaurant is small, so the buffet line crowds the seating But a great place for good Chinese food in the NW Knoxville area. Prices reasonable .

I have eaten here off and on for over a decade. Always get the beef and broccoli. We have moved and I tried a couple of Chinese restaurants and it was not very good. Nice to back enjoying great fast food Chinese.

I had their lunch buffet and it was just so good. They kept it modest with a limited selection of very well prepared food that was regularly freshened up instead of making the mistake of offering a lot of poorly prepared choices (the most common mistake by Chinese restaurants offering buffets in K-ville). And the food was so fresh and... More

Small but well established place. Food is prepared when you order. You can watch them as they make it if you like. Best hot and sour soup I've had - also made per order, not out of a stock pot!

Good Chinese food in Knoxville seems few and far between, let's just put it that way. Most places in town seem to be heating up microwave dinners and then disguising it with a gallon of sauce. Panda is a very small business with few staff and less seating, which may turn off some potential customers, but their served product tends... More
