Stopped for a quick bite and were not disappointed. Were offered a sample to taste before ordering. The buffet was fully stocked and the food was fresh and flavorful. Clean restaurant

Most of the dishes are chicken based. Not anything exceptional. Many of the dishes had a similar flavor. If you want fast buffet experience with nothing special this is it.

One time was enough for me. Food was awful. Buffet was minimally stocked. Drinks weren't refilled. Servers were teenaged Chinese girls who didn't seem to understand English and weren't efficient. Maybe new, IDK but food was terrible and that alone was enough to keep me from ever going back. Do yourself a favor and go to Peking Chinese Restaurant in... More

AWFUL!!! I went there once, and it was terrible.. The food on the hot bar, wasn,'t. Some of it wasn't even warm. Just absolutely nothing was good. I think the board of health needs a very serious inspection of this place. I will never go back. Granted, this is not suppose to be a fine dining experience, but it is... More

Nice staff and the deal is going for the bay buffet special. Very basic buffet and not large but should do for most seeking a good price and fill your stomach.

We enjoy the food at the Panda Chinese buffet. Great food for the price and a friendly staff. We usually eat there on the weekend.

We eat here occasionally and reviewed this establishment shortly after it opened a few years ago. Unfortunately instead of improving, the quality here has declined slightly over time so that this is just an average oriental buffet. It isn't bad and is still the best oriental in Benton, but it is not great nor a great value. Eat here when... More

Best Chinese food in the Benton area. I like shrimp and they serve shrimp at least 3 different ways for their supper buffet. The business is run by a Chinese family that don't speak a whole lot of English but are very very friendly. I would eat there a lot more often if my wife would let me.

The people are nice but the food has a bland taste with no flavor. They need to expand on the foods that they offer

The Panda house has a lot of seafood on their buffet and the food is pretty good. I just personally prefer Chongs when I want to eat Chinese.
