Unlike one of the reviewers, my husband and I found the owner's young daughter just charming and were delighted to be seated by her. (Special tip!) The food is tasty, service is quick and take-out is also very fast. Great Japanese selection as well. Often...More

By far the best lunch bargain in town. Nice chinese lunch for under five dollars. Not much on atmosphere but if you want an inexpensive lunch it beats fast food by a long shot. Family run so you may be seated by a five year...More

China Panda is REALLY good. Family owned and run with pride, they have something for everyone. They have typical American Chinese food, yes, and good sushi too, but also another menu for Chinese students and those in the know. That's where some of the more...More

Service was fine, food, to my wife and I, was somewhat bland. Definitely plenty of it, though, which college students will likely find appealing. The hot and sour soup was unusually savory but had no spiciness at all. Mongolian pork could have been Mongolian chicken...More

This place has very good Chinese and Japanese food, no question. But the service is scattered and spotty, to be charitable. And please, it's not a great idea for the owners to let their kid run around the restaurant. Tacky.

My wife and I have made China Panda our go-to date night restaurant. The Chinese and Japanese menus are excellent, and their bento-box lunches are an incredible deal. Not to mention that it is the only place in town to get good, fresh sushi. And...More

Have lived in this area for over 25 years and have been to many Chinese restaurants in a 50 mile radius and this is by far the best! I think portion sizes are fair and the prices are very reasonable. All the staff has been...More

If I'm in Athens and feel like eating Chinese (or Sushi) this is my place of choice. Unlike some of the questionable buffets, China panda is order off the menu only. The food is always good and the service is good as well

It's like a place for Asion fusion food. You don't get authentic Chinese food here, but you can get a taste of the whole East Asia. The sushi and dons are pretty nice, and the portions are large. The Chinese food compares less favorably with...More
