Went there withy family and liked the ambiance, plain wood pallet covered the windows and gave a nice modern look at the place. The food was different from the usual, I selected the chupe de camarones that blended an egg with shrimp and rice, the kids got tasty sandwiches, and we ended the lunch with very good desserts.

My family and friends eat at here frequently. The servers are friendly and the service is good. The food is good, moderately priced and we have never had a bad meal here. They frequently have coupons for lunch so you can get a discount. The rotisserie chicken is very tasty. We have tried other dishes and enjoyed them all. The... More

We drove 30 miles to eat dinner here and it was worth every drop of petrol. Everything from beginning to end was delicious. We ordered what most other reviewers raved about so we had high expectations and were not disappointed. The ceviche was an unusual dish that would be difficult to select based on appearance alone, but it was an... More

Came here with a friend on a Tuesday night and it was pretty busy. Not as busy as places closer to downtown Oceanside, but there was a steady flow of people. Food was delicious. I've never had Peruvian food nor have I ever been to Peru so I can't compare it to anything, but as someone who enjoys food I... More

who knew there was Peruvian food in Oceanside? we had the Scallops Wonton (is that really Peruvian?) and the Lomo Saltado beef plate and both were outstanding. the rotisserie chicken was a little bland, but everything else made up for that.

We've been coming here for awhile now. Panda never disappoints, even when the owner is away. Make sure you save room for the creme brulee. It is the best I ever have had.

Spent a lot of time in the sun in Carlsbad and needed some food. Went here and got the chicken with 2 sides. Perfect. Delicious and the servers were extra nice. Tip 'em big!

Wow. First time to eat Peruvian cuisine. So impressed with the fresh flavors. Had the Aji de Gallina (chicken). You have to try it. Great dessert and the Peruvian organic coffee was delicious.

A group of us met here for dinner last night. Only one of us had visited before, which is why Panca was chosen. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly. The server was well-informed and helpful. The ceviche was great, as were the scallop wantons -- they were a pleasant surprise. After 2 beers, I can't remember what the... More

This intimate, elegantly casual, air conditioned little morsel is a favorite after only one visit! It was difficult to choose, as they offer rotisserie seasoned chicken with salads, or beef stews with soft potatoes or rice. The sandwiches come with French fries or sweet potato fries. I can't wait to try more of the entrees too! The service was great!... More
