There are 4 rows of main courses, chicken, beef, pork, eggroll, rice, vegetables, soup, etc Nothing fancy. Dishes were hot. Noting very spicy or flavorful. A good stuffing can be had. Better eats are available around town for same price.

Food was COLD, and while there not one thing was replaced with fresh food. I actually told my kids not to eat their food, and we left. We were offered 15% off our bill, and that didn't even cover my 5 year olds bill. We...More

Living a few blocks from Panda Garden- it was our go-to for a quick occasional dinner. We tried Peony when it first opened and were pretty unimpressed. Gave it another chance this week figuring it might be growing pains- but it wasn't. In fact, it...More

Had lunch it was very good, food was hot and fresh was skeptical because of reviews will go back sometimes it's best to go not based solely on reviews.

Awful Awful Awful! I can't say anything positive about this place. When it was the Panda Buffet it was an okay Chinese buffet. Now under new name and supposed new ownership, it has reached almost inedible levels

Sushi smelt awful. Ice cream was freezer burnt. The sliding glass cover to access the ice cream is held together by duct tape. The pastries were rock hard. The food is dried out and needed to be replaced with fresh food. In the woman’s washroom...More

I think that the timing makes a world of difference. I went twice in two days. About 4;00 p.m and 4:45 p.m. The food was fresh with a variety of shrimp. One employee told me that the sushi was much improved.from before. If you want...More

This restaurant has successfully made the transition from mid grade Chinese buffet (Panda Garden) to a miserable Chinese buffet. There is not a corner that they did not cut in the change over to Peony. Just don't. It makes Mandarin seem like a great deal.
