“Just what you expect”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2013

This Panda Express is located in a strip mall called Kona Commonw, across the street from Target. The food is what you will find at any of this chain's locations. There are some outdoor tables that, even though they are basically on the sidewalk next to the parking lot, are a nice opportunity to sit outside while you eat. Nothing new here.

“Food did not set well”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012

Got quite ill shortly after eating here - like in 20 minutes. Also, kinda overwhelming on a first visit trying to understand the 'system' of ordering. Will continue to look for quality Chinese food in Hilo and realize a chain is not the place to do so

Rice was good, I didn't like their noodles. Decent selection. Food was edible, some dishes better than others. Was fast.

“Typical chain food fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012

If you feel like a fix of predetermined mainland chinese food, then you have come to the right place. New, clean and upscale in looks for a chain store, Panda serves up your orange chicken and beef broccoli as imagined. A shame to bypass all the local restaurants in the area, but sometimes one just wants to have no surprises, Panda offers, no surprises.
