This place is the most disgusting Chinese food I have ever eaten in my life. We ordered 3 meals Sept 14, 21 through door dash for a total of $70 and all we got was nasty disgusting food that went straight into the trash! First...off we all ordered fried rice with all of our meals and got plain brown rice. Than let’s talk about the main dishes. The general Taos chicken was rubbery and dried out and tasted as if it had been reheated over and over again. Than the sweet-and-sour chicken tasted old and soggy like it had been reheated up over and over. Then the pepper steak with onion consisted of tiny pieces of meat and 99.99% of the dish was only peppers and onions with very little meat and it had a funny taste. Than the egg rolls tasted like they you’re full of pepper and the wonton soup looked and tasted like dirty dishwater. This is hands-down the worst Chinese food in Lexington! I would not even feed this to my dog or worst enemy that’s how bad it tasted! Never again!!!More

Incredible food. This is NOT the Chinese food that you get at a China Star, China King, Wok Express, etc. This is the real deal. You need to know that going in. Do yourself a favor and study the menu in advance. I've been here...dozens of times over the years and the food has never let me down. The staff are generally friendly, however there are a few servers who are downright rude. If they worked on training their front of house staff to be more friendly and welcoming (it may be a cultural thing), I would rate Panda Cuisine 5/5. Generally there is a feeling of being rushed when eating. Don't let them rush you and don't let a bad server keep you from enjoying the food.More

I ordered Kung Pao Tofu ($12.95 menu item #112) off the dinner / take out menu. The place was pretty quiet on a Thursday night, but there were a number of take out orders while I was there. If you cannot call it in advance,...expect a 20 minute wait for your take out. I requested extra spicy and it was good, but the sauce was a little underwhelming. It was not gloppy, but the flavor just didn't remind me of other Kung Pao dishes I have had and liked in the past. Customer service was a bit on the cool side (could have been friendlier).More

I would give them -5 if that’s an option! I was in the middle of eating and this woman who’s either the manager or owner came and told us that we should leave if we are done! My friend was still eating! WORST service ever!...Who the hell does this their customers! WORST experience WORST Money spent!!!More

I like awide variety of foods but Chinese food has always been a staple of my diet. The problem has become that Chinese food is becoming harder to find much less good Chinese food. While visiting Lexington we stopped in here and it was marvelous....If you have a problem with people that don’t necessarily speak perfect English don’t both going here, but if you want great food served properly (family style) give this place a try.More

We were greeted and seated as soon as we walked in, our server was friendly and helpful. She took our drinks order and explained the buffet. We started with soup that was delicious. There was lots to choose from on he buffet - seafood and...chicken mostly including some more authentic ingredients like chicken's feet & pigs ear. Unfortunately, I felt that the food was oily & lacked authentic seasoning. Nothing really stood out as a great dish that I would want more of. The restaurant was really busy, people waiting for tables when we left. It's great value and accommodates big groups of people. Maybe we will give this place another try and order off of the menu since we haven't found a better Chinese restaurant in Lexington.More

I love the fact you have a large table with a lazy susan. You can share food and enjoy the entire experience with friends/family.

For those who understand flavor and spice, this is the place to go. The ambiance is mediocre, service is quick and reasonable. It appears that they're just focused on feeding you without the drama of experience but what they serve is hands down exceptional and...flavorful. Must try panda fish delight and jalapeno chicken with white rice, there are many more options and all are excellent.More

We love Panda Express! The chow mein noodles are so good, as are the Shanghai angus steak, orange chicken, and mushroom chicken entrees. Everything is fresh and very tasty, and a delicious quick meal for two can be had for under $10!

We took our minority group to Panda Cuisine for lunch. The buffet offered a wide variety of foods, many that our group had not tried. Our entire group (15) were seated at a LARGE round table, which was nice. The service was good. Overall it...was a good experience.More
