“Yummy Food...Family friendly and value for money!”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

I thought the food was very nice, staff attentive, restaurant clean....not as much selection of Chinese food from previous visits but the buffet that was available all appeared to be fresh and cooked perfectly.

Good value for money and ideal for children.

Could not fault the place, food or staff! We will return.

“Cheap and Cheerful”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Panda is a large glass-fronted buffet restaurant located a few minute’s walk from Sunderland Railway station, attracting families, friends and couples. The premises are clean and modern with seating on both ground and upper levels with sufficient space to get to and from your table.

There is generally a good selection of hot and cold food available with staff regularly refreshing displays. The Grand Buffet (after 7pm) includes additional seafood mains and duck and pancakes served at your table and is very reasonable at £8.90 though, in common with most buffets, drinks can be a little expensive.

Super Lunch is priced at £6.30 and the 5-7pm Happy Hour is £7.30. Student and Senior discounts are available before 7pm Sunday to Wednesday and children (up to 4 feet 11) are charged at £3. It appears that Panda also charge for babies (even if they are not eating) so diners may want to clarify this before eating so there are no unexpected charges.

Desserts include fruit, jelly, cake, custard, scooped ice cream and a Mr Whippy style ice cream machine for the big kids!

There are also four different sized karaoke function rooms available for hire for up to 30 people including food and drink.
