Freshly cooked Asian food at a low price. Only down side I can see is the use of a wooden cutting board for the teriyaki chicken. They should use non-bacterial boards.

If you are hungry, the Panda Express in Bellingham will do. If you live in the upper Northwest, it'll do. Why? Because, you really don't have much choice when up in Bellingham. If it's the only Chinese food you have ever known, then it's good. But if you've tasted the Chinese food in Oakland Chinatown, then Panda Express in Bellingham... More

This is the equivalent of Chinese fast food, and neither category is improved by the combination. As with what you'd expect from a mall food court or grocery store, the options here are precooked and displayed in heated serving trays. Selection is limited, and there are no options to request a healthful version of what is presented. As a vegetarian... More

It's the same everywhere: Panda Express serves Asian fast food with cafeteria style counter service. The food is consistent and pretty good, but nothing would qualify as gourmet or fine dining. Eat in or take out. Good prices.

I liked the food. I didn't like seeing the chef eating as he was cooking. And I don't mean sampling.

That is: this is not authentic Chinese food. It's the typical 2 or 3 items plus rice or lo mein noodles, all of which is prepared by minimally-trained teenagers from kits supplied by some central warehouse somewhere. BUT, it's also a place where you can have a reasonable, fast, hot, well-seasoned and not ridiculously unhealthy lunch involving plenty of vegetables,... More

Ok So I should start out by saying that I have had food at many Chinese food Restaurants. and of the fast food or better described as perhaps scoop and serve places where where food is ready and you pick what you want. This is among the best. I had better a few times and defiantly have had worse. Atmosphere:... More

The food was good & the price very good. I like it was served in a "to go" container since I had left overs that made a great snack that night (after microwaving)

We went there today 3 kids and parents. Under $30 fed us all. Don't recommend the fried rice it seemed worn out, but the rest was great. The kids loved it. Was a few notches above the normal fast food.

Went to KFC and had to shout to get attention and even then the employees were busy playing video games. Panda on the other hand is a 180 from that experience. Friendly and courteous......and the food is always fresh. Dunno how they do it but they do
