I went there for lunch. The lady that met me was surly and disrespectful. The other gentleman who was greeting visitors was nice. Their dimsum is bad.............expensive. Not worth it. I wont go back to this restaurant.

Thank cucumber1

I've been to Panda Cuisine several times now, both for the late night dim sum and the regular dishes. While Panda is known for the dim sum offerings, the regular dishes are just as good, if not better. Some outstanding must-have's include (I don't know the actual names on the menu):
-Lobster with crinkled noodles underneath
-Crab in soup with yellow curry and clear thin noodles
-Panfried yellow curry noodles with shrimp
-Sauteed greens with garnish
-Red bean stuffed sticky rice balls in ginger broth (dessert)

I've been to Panda Cuisine on several occasions, but only for dim sum. I've looked at the regular menu, but the entrees seemed a little overpriced. The dim sum is also priced a little high, but it's much more affordable than the regular menu. If you're a dim sum afficianado (which I don't claim to be) then you probably know that it's not hard to find a good dim sum meal for cheap. At most restaurants, dim sum is usually a breakfast of lunch item. Panda cuisine is one of the only places that serves dim sum late into the evening, for those with late night dim sum cravings. Although priced comparably high, the dim sum is outright delicious. You'll find that dim sum plump and stuffed full with meat, seafood, and/or vegetables. While those on a budget may want to avoid Panda and opt for the more rustic, bustling restaurants of China Town, in nearby downtown, Panda remains a nice change of pace for those willing to treat themselves to a little more high class, sophisticated atmosphere. Heck, upon entering the restaurant, the waiting area is plastered with photos of famous Asian celebrities (none of whom I could recognize), who have dined there. If celebrities dine there, then it must be high class, right? ;-) Overall, while the nice decor and atmosphere, and the delicious dim sum may seem worth the higher prices, I can't see myself frequenting Panda on a regular basis, especially when I know that there is much more affordable dim sum in the area. Still, I'd probably give Panda 3 and 1/2 stars, for being slightly above average, but unfortunately aren't any 1/2 star ratings :(
