Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had a trip over to Lyme Regis and as we really enjoyed Red Panda in Exeter we had to try this one too. I had pork bao bun and my husband had the same plus the salad box. Very very very yummy. Couldn't fault it...at all and the lady serving was so friendly and helpful. Just wish you could eat in to dodge the seagulls but it was lovely and sunny on the beach.More

We decided to try The Red Panda on a Saturday evening as saw they were open 5-7pm one evening. What delicious food, freshly prepared and served by friendly staff. My husband and I shared a rice salad box with chicken satay, a pork belly bao...bun and some spare ribs. It was all absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to return to Lyme to go again!More

I opted for the bao & salad box and it did not disappoint! I wanted to also try the bao & rice but the rice wasn't ready and we didn't want to wait 25 mins for it to be cooked (a shame!). The spicy salad...with the watermelon works so well, the pork bao was delish. The only gripe I had was that it was all packaged separately, it would of been good if it was in a box together (but bao still wrapped up). I saw pictures of the bigger boxes on social media so was hoping I'd get the same. Ask for extra chilli crisp because it's a game changer!More

Delicious food! We went with the family (then ate on the beach) and we all loved it. Really good quality food, the bao's were soft, fluffy and just amazing - I almost wish I had brought more of them!

What an awesome little place! We stopped in Lyme Regis for a pit stop on our way to Brighton and decided to grab some lunch. My daughter spotted the Red panda sign straight away :) Such friendly staff, fantastic food with great kids options too....Loved the eco packaging and well thought out ordering system. The Teriyaki bao bun and salad was the best I’ve had. We’ll definitely be back!More

Love Red Panda food - tasty, healthy and good value. They would have got a 5 star review from us EXCEPT for the service-without-a-smile approach. Staff always seem stressed and unhappy to see you!! Sort it out Red Panda- we are your customers not your...enemies!!!More

Perfect pit stop / snack lunch on a busy day. Make your order from the small menu and wait for your buzzer to go off for collection. I had the pork bao bun and it was banging! Full of meat, veg and chilli oil. Just...right for food on the go, especially when your bord of ice-cream and fish and chipsMore

Had the chicken bao and a salad. The bao looked a bit squished by the time I got it back to where we were staying. Despite its squished state it was extremely delicious. The salad too topped off with a slice of watermelon with crispy...chilli stuff and peanuts. If I wasn’t leaving Lyme Regis tomorrow I’d be there for lunch.More

This is the third year in a row I have made a beeline for this place when visiting Lyme. The food is simply unrivalled and Red Panda just keep doing what they do best- serving spectacular Asian street food! The bao buns are to die...for and the rice box with pork is immense, it’s our last day tomorrow but we’ll be back (again) for lunch before hitting the road home to Derbyshire. Until next year!More

I'd done some research before coming here and loving asain food I knew we had to try the red panda. I had the tofu with the super food salad box. The tofu was crispy on the outside and juicy in the middle. My husband had...the pork belly which he thoroughly enjoyed. We were also able to sit on benches outside with a beautiful view of the Dorset coast. An absolute must try if you come here.More
