Very good food. Nice atmosphere, newly remodeled modern Asian style. Great service, complete wine list, reasonable prices. Large portions; plenty for leftovers. I love their white chocolate dipped fortune cookies too!

We made dinner reservations for four people for 5:45 pm on a Tuesday night. An early dinner on a typically non-busy night. When we arrived, they said there would be a wait. So we waited. . .and waited. . .and waited. After checking with the hostess several times, we were always told there were other reservation ahead of us. What... More

This is quintessential American Chinese food. The food here is similar to what is offered at Panda Express, but with much higher quality. Absolutely exceeded my expectation. Easily beats other American Chinese restaurants like PF Chang. Service is excellent as well. Would eat here again if I am in the area.

Good selection, excellent portions, affordable, always fresh. My favorites are the Angus beef, orange chicken, and kung pao chicken. I usually go with chow mein or fried rice as my side. Only negative are the spring rolls, not good

I love this restaurant. First of all, the food is outstanding here and is a refreshing change from the many dumpy fast-food and mom--and-pops joints in the area that dish out mediocre Chinese fare. Second, the menu is just right with a nice balance of meats, poultry, fish, noodles and vegetable dishes. Great assortment of appetizers, soups and salads also.... More

It's not often that I get to experience pure elegance & class at a restaurant that offers great food at a great value but this one receives my highest grade. I was on business and was staying at a nearby hotel. The front desk clerk recommended this place to me but my vision was tainted by the name imilarity to... More

This is a good place to go and grab some good Americanized Chinese food. They also have a happy hour and it was pretty good. The food and service is consistently good.

Panda Inn is a leader in upscale Chinese cuisine. The restaurant was established through the vision of Andrew Cherng, founder and chairman of parent company Panda Restaurant Group, and his father, Master Chef Ming-Tsai Cherng. The concept remains simple - to introduce regional Chinese cooking to a local audience. Today, Panda Inn carries on that tradition in a more casually sophisticated setting, practicing the Chinese art of balancing a mixture of tastes and textures in each entree to delight the senses.
