“Friendly staff, delicious food, and the best sushi in the area”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

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 how. The "sushi boat" is a great option for groups who all want sushi and to split a bill; a large, wooden boat is brought to the table stacked and filled with sushi for all to share. The staff is excellent and very friendly.

“Best Chinese and Japanese in town!”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

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 very friendly and they remember you if you are a repeat customer. If you want better/larger sushi - try going to Japan at $3000.00 round trip (been there many times).

“Good Chinese and Sushi in Athens”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

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

“Chi and Jap, all in one.”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

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 their Japanese food in my mind.
It has lots of waitresses to cover the whole area. One of them is really cute and nice (I don't remember the name).
It's always crowded.
