I was "greeted" by a female employee who was the most unfriendly person I have met here on the island. She spoke with such broken English, I had a hard time understanding her. She was very light handed when it came to the portion size of my plate. Back home they put more on your plate. The food was average,... More

I'm not huge into Chinese food but Panda Express has definitely changed my mind. Their food is fresh, fast, tasty and with so many choices. The servers are so accommodating and really try to give you exactly what you want, like extra broccoli, not too much onion, etc. and the portions are huge! Last night's take out dinner was also...

We walked past a couple who were dining outdoors and their plates looked so good we thought we would give it a try. It's basically fast food with chinese dishes warmed in a bay marie but there's fast turnover so it seems reasonably fresh. We had plates with 2 dishes and a side of steamed vegetables and each dish had... More

I have a confession to make. I had NEVER eaten at Panda Express before. I was a snob who would look and shrug them off "because that's not Chinese food". One day I sucked it up and thought I would give it a shot, after my local Chinese place had kept disappointing me repeatedly. I have to say wow, I... More

I've never eaten at Panda Express (ever) until about 2 months ago when I finally said - "check it out". To my surprise, their selection is great and the service fast. Prices are good too. The best part is that the whole restaurant including the kitchen is very clean and you can see all the fresh vegetables neatly lined up... More

When you need some Chinese this is fine but it is fast food! My husband likes the beef and broccoli but I like the chicken Kung pal! We take it to the beach for a picnic!

Of all the Panda Express fast-food restaurants we have tried, this location is my favorite. My husband and I have not been impressed by the ones in California. The dishes taste fresher with more flavor, especially chicken dishes because I cook them at home and I know how chicken should taste, if done right. Some chefs at Chinese restaurants cannot... More

The ladies who work there are always pleasant and its generally very clean. Once in a while they get slammed with cruise ship customers and it can get a little messy, but over all a very clean place.

My family ate here and we all loved it. It is located in the Kona Commons near Sports Authority and Petco. You walk along a line and tell them what you want as you walk by. The food and service is very good. I highly recommend eating here,
