Annual visitors to Wareham, but never eaten Chinese there. Impulse decision to get a Chinese takeaway on this visit, and chose Pandada. Ordered at the restaurant, greeting and service were good. Order was ready in just under 20 mins. Food quality good but not outstanding. A quarter crispy duck was pre-shredded in the container, which was actually helpful and it... More

Two ladies + 12 & 14 yr olds. Arrived 9:45pm and asked for a table which we were (severely and) ABRUPTLY TOLD "we close at ten thirty!" Whilst looking at the wall clock, I coolly asked the female 'greeter' if she'd like us to leave .. and she repeated "we close at ten thirty!" So I repeated MY question. The... More

Decided to go last minute as the pub had a long wait for food, so on a very rainy night we found Pandada. Even though we were a large group and it was late, the staff made us feel very welcome. There was a good choice on the menu and the prices were very reasonable. We all ordered drinks, starters... More

We usually head to the Pandada before a trip to The Rex Cinema, as the restaurant is just opposite, opens at 17:30 and we can be assured of swift service, so we don't miss the start of the film. I've never had a bad meal here; the crispy shredded beef is really good, as is the Thai Red Curry and... More

In this part of Dorset, there is a shortage of decent Chinese take aways. We decided to give Pandada a shot. We decided £20 a head for the set meal was a bit steep so we went with a selection of the menu. There is no online menu that we could find so we had to go in person to... More

Takeaway was awful. Tiny pieces of meat bathing in a sea of onion and gloop. I can't tell you how disappointed we were. We used to use Pandada as a treat a few years ago and hadn't been back for a while so we're looking forward to a good Chinese meal. Hopefully the taste and smell of onion will eventually... More

Food average, over salted/msg'd. Part of order missing, which we only realised when we were 5 miles away. Pandana not very helpful when we rang and eventually offered to send us a cheque for missing item (without knowing our address!). Afraid rather a lot got wasted, which I hate. Only here on holiday so won't be returning.

Staying at Sandford holiday park, chose to get a Chinese takeaway as a last minute decision. Didn't know of any in the area as not local but Pandada popped up after a quick Google search. Very nice food from here. Reasonably priced too. And we got 20% discount on collection as well!
