“Darn Good Chinese Food in Salinas / Prunedale”
Review of Panda Garden

Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 5, 2012

I had been looking for a reasonably priced Chinese food restaurant in this area for awhile. I happened to stumble upon this one as a result of a flat tire.

The food here is really quite good and they serve it in abundance which justifies the expense. They do not use MSG. They offer a wide array of choices which include a selection of vegetarian options. This is fairly important to me and finding vegetarian options in the area has proven to be difficult.

While the food is really tasty, it doesn't hold up well as leftovers. The texture of everything I ate was a bit grainy the second day.

The service was quick and friendly. The ambiance is bare bones. The restaurant itself was actually quite cold, so wear something warm if you plan on dining in.

Overall I would recommend it as a place to go, particularly if you are going to share dishes so that you can sample a bit of everything.
