The staff was very friendly, and the food was fantastic! My only wish would be that they would bring back the Sweet 'N Sour Pork to the menu.

The price, for excellent Chinese food, freshly-prepared and served by friendly folks in a clean setting, is remarkable - remarkably low. The best value for the money.

Food at Panda's is all the same which for the price is pretty good. I prefer going to the Panda in San Luis Obispo, CA

What could be bad about Panda Express? The food is always great and the service at this location is prompt and friendly. The line that forms around dinner time says it all-so go early!

The Panda Express seems to put new items on their menu now and then. The food is always fresh cooked and priced right and they have pretty good iced tea.

This is a chain restaurant. The food is in warmers and you tell the server behind the counter what you want. Try to go during lunch or dinner time when the food in the trays is freshest. If the tray is almost empty tell them you would like to wait for a fresh one and they will make it for... More

This Panda Express is clean, has eye-catching décor, and a lot of natural lighting. The Chinese food is fresh and delicious, but the entrees servings can be skimpy. There is plenty of eat-in seating. The employees are friendly and helpful. The location is great with ample parking and other shops nearby.

We wanted something a bit lighter, but still tasty. I ordered the Samauri Surf and Turf with brown steamed rice. Amazing! My husband gets two entrees, but after trying mine, we went back two nights later and we both had it. They were very busy the second night and there wasn't much shrimp in the container at the counter, so... More

I love this Panda Express. It's always clean and the food is so fresh. It's in a great neighborhood too. Only thing I don't like is the manager. It's pretty unprofessional to be telling employees off in front of customers. It makes me uncomfortable. This has happened twice. Other than the rude manager it is great. I'm glad I only... More
