We usually get our Chinese food from our fav take out restaurant: China Taste. However when our daughter in law stated Panda House had the best Chinese food in Omaha & it was downtown, close to our home, we had to try it. We ordered shrimp fried rice, no egg, peas or carrots, add onions. Two spring rolls, two chicken... More

This place served me the worst plate of "Chinese" food I have ever been served. Egg rolls right out of the freezer, to the microwave, to the plate. If you don't care about your food Panda House, why should I. Disgraceful.

I like going to the Panda House most when I am going to see a show at the Orpheum Theater. It is walking distance to the Orpheum, the food is decent and reasonably priced and I leave full. This may sound like I am dissing the place, but I am not. The menu is your basic Americanized Chinese fare. And... More

Tried it out last week. Good atmosphere, nice owners and great food. Very hospitable and would go again and recommend to those in the area looking for a good Chinese food place

Two of us ate together. We decided to get two egg rolls and then split an entree. That gave us plenty of food. We had the sesame chicken. Not bad, but nothing to rave about. The service was spot-on.

Not a terrible little Chinese place. Service is not friendly, but tolerable. I've only ever gotten the chicken fried rice, sesame chicken, and tangerine chicken. All tasted fine, all came out very hot. Soup was good, crab rangoon were good. Just a decent little spot to grab some Chinese. Wish they had Sriracha though!.

Food is quick and daily specials are very reasonable, including crab ran-goon, soup, and the main course. More that enough to fill you up for an afternoon back at the office. Never too crowded or a need to wait to place your order. Probably best with groups of 6 or less.

We go to Panda House about 3-4 times a year before shows ant the Orpheum. They are always attentive and extremely officiant with their service. I have never been there though when they are busy. They usually only have about 3-4 tables with people. We are able to get in and out quickly and make it down to the show... More

I was asked never to order again because I was asking for a future credit on my full order as it was short and wrong all together. I was also told that they don't need my referral business because they were busy enough.

Better than I expected it to be. The food was really good!! I had the sesame bean curd and my husband had the veggie fried rice. The place was empty, but so are most places in Omaha. The place seemed clean too.
