Been eating at Panda Garden for quite some time and felt they deserved some kudos. We are never disappointed. Food is always consistent and very tasty. Very extensive buffet selection. We travel alot and try Chinese in other areas but always look forward to coming back to the Panda Garden. It is also a great value for your money.

Mystery meat, not so fresh food and overpriced for rice, noodles and fried meats. And the charge $3 for a drink. Definitely better options

This is a great place to get a good meal for a reasonable price. We order take out from this place at least twice a month. Me and another co-worker eat at Panda Garden for lunch and the food portions are large enough to split a meal.

We ate here on a busy Sun for lunch. Almost no wait time to be seated. Food was ok but not inspiring. I could go back again but wouldn't be a favorite of mine..

In my opinion, this is the best Chinese restaurant in Cookeville! There are others that try to copy but fall way short of the mark.
