We are locals but when we want a tasty, quick meal on the run we stop here. We order the meats only in one cup increments or maybe over the veggies. Even at non meal times our food seems fresh and hot.

Went there because we couldn't find the other Asian restaurant we wanted to go to. 🐼 express is a fast food restaurant, but a very good one - all dishes pre-prepared but freshly cooked - tasted really really good (had two plates and white rice)....More

went to Pandas for dinner. Honey walnut shrimp is absolutely fantastic. You get alot of food for your money. So worth going for lunch or dinner.

Although the menu is narrow (they really need to add more noodle choices - especially wide noodles), the food is good for a fast food chain. I will go there again.

Panda express is one of our favorite restaurants! The food is always great! I like the healthy choices they offer, such as brown rice, mixed veggies and grilled chicken teriyaki with the option of the sauce on the side.

In a town with mediocre Chinese food, Panda Express was a welcomed addition. The food is good, always fresh, and reasonably priced. Staff are friendly and the place is always clean. If you want good Chinese food in Hilo, go to Panda Express Trippers. You...More
