This is one of those places we stopped at and grabbed something to take to the beach to share. It's the same as you can get anywhere. The staff was very nice. The service was fast.

After we arrived from an inter-island flight at Lihue Airport we headed for our B&B in Kihei and passed this Panda Express on Kihio Highway. It was busy and line moved quickly with efficient staff behind the counter. Gal cleaned tables as they were vacated, keeping lines moving. We were happy with the choices and three sizes of portions to... More

This your typical Panda Express, found everywhere in the USA, including the Hawaiian Islands. The food is good, something for everyone at an affordable price. The atmosphere is inviting for all but not business.

Fast, light and tasty. Stopped here one evening when we were looking for something light and were not disappointed.

On our last night visiting Kauai, we had our condo refrigerator cleaned out so we decided to do take out. We have this food occasionally when cooking is not an option at home. The food was good as expected, it did not taste any different than usual. We order three of the 2 entree meals that comes with your choice... More

This is a place that's probably not going to get 4 or 5 star but deserves 3. Quick. Easy. Good price. Food is satisfactory. I expected more to be honest as seen so many around. Nodddles were poor. Would not rush back. Might eat there again on the rare occasion.

Asian food that is formula prepared, a bit greasy, and sitting under heat lamps. Not bad value and good ingredients. Best for a quick lunch. 2 people can eat one lunch plate.

Seemed to me just like the Panda Express I visited in Chicago a month ago. The food was excellent and the prices were the same as Chicago (around $10). It's hard to find a great meal at this price anywhere on the island.

Stopped in on a Sunday evening after a day at the beach. Wanted decent food quick. We got food quick but they were out of a few different dishes. The dining room was a mess. The bathroom was worse. It said on the cleaning log that June 3rd was the last cleaning and it looked like it. BTW today was... More

For a fast food place Panda Express offers a large variety of ready to serve dishes. We paid about $ 27.00 for a take-out for two which consisted of: fried rice, noodles, Angus beef with green beans, Kung Pao chicken, curry chicken, deep fried shrimp, green beans and a a spring roll. Everything was tasty and satisfying.
