Have the buffet or order off the menu. We always love the food here. Not a large selection, but they have what we like. Prices are excellent for families. Ordering off the menu or take out gives you more than you can eat. I love their wonton soup, I could make a meal of it just by itself. My entree... More

Small kind of dark restaurant. About average items on the buffett. Very good sweet and sour chicken. They serve both egg rolls and spring rolls. Staff was coming out and checking on the food and made more as needed. Did notice they don't cook with msg so it doesn't feel like you need to drink a lot of water later... More

I went the buffet at one oclock and the food was dried out and not fresh. There was only a small amount of food in each bin. They do give a senior discount. Their chicken wings were dry and hard. I will not go back there. They need to keep their food fresh and more flavorful

This place is very clean and the buffet was kept hot and full while we were there, even though it was a Tuesday evening after the main dinner hour. The food was mild but fine and the price was very low. I would pass on the egg rolls and spring rolls in favor of wontons and steamed dumplings which were... More

This is not Chinese, it's very inauthentic and the meat looks like jiggly bits...all the meat has the same texture from beef to chicken. I'm not even sure it's meat.

Good buffet and great service. I got an order to go once and when I got home I realized they had forgotten to put one of my items in the bag. I called them up and they delivered it right to my house for me. Couldn't ask for more!

The service is friendly and efficient, and the prices are great for what you get. My favorite dish is the mongolian beef which is tender and spicy. They will deliver to local hotels and casinos for a nominal charge ($3) and the food is delivered in travel friendly plastic containers that can be saved and reused.

I love that Panda does not use any MSG. The buffet is small but they always have it stocked and if they run out of something they will make you more right away. I LOVE the staff they are very attentive and friendly. I think that the decor is a bit dated and I think if they modernized thinking a... More

I love going here. The price is decent and the food is great. If something is getting low they refill it and keep things fresh even during non busy times. There was this one time I wanted potstickers and there was only one left, I asked and they made a fresh batch right away. The employees are kind and prompt... More
