We depend on Trip Advisor when traveling, and went here based on the good reviews. I'm sorry to say this was one of the worst restaurant experiences we've ever had. We arrived at 6:00 pm for dinner and the place was deserted. We ordered and the soup came. It was lukewarm at best. We mentioned it to the waitress and... More

Have been going here for years. Great buffet, and even better food if you order from the menu. They will always honor special requests. This is a locally owned family-run restaurant. I highly recommend it!

We decided to try this restaurant based on other tripadvisor reviews and glad we did. We were greeted warmly. The buffet was recommended over ordering off the menu, since the kitchen was very busy and we would have a longer wait for our food. I decided on the buffet, but my husband decided on ordering from the menu. I was... More

Panda Garden offers DELICIOUS food at very reasonable prices. For example, their lunch (daily 11:00-2:00) and dinner (Thursday-Friday-Saturday 5:00-8:00) buffets - lunch is $6.50 and dinner is $8.95 for unlimited buffet. Check the menu board as you enter their foyer for times, prices, special events coming up, etc. Dinner buffet is extensive and includes dessert, and of course Chinese tea... More

My wife and I have eaten in Chinese restaurants in Canada and U.S. and until now have have suffered through terribly mediocre dining experiences. The menu at the Panda Garden Restaurant (245 Center St. in Auburn, ME) is a true epicurean delight. Wonderful sauces and a wide variety of wonderfully-prepared meats and vegetables. Peter and Linda are ``hosts extraordinaire``- their... More

The food is some of the best around. I have found the further north you go from Boston the worst the chinese food gets. This place is amazing. They have great food and service is awesome too!

I live near Auburn, and when we want great Chinese food, this is where we go. The food is fresh, and the staff is very friendly and accomodating. One of my favorite places to eat.

This is a family owned restaurant, and you the guest are made to feel welcomed as if you are family. The prices are very reasonable, the buffet is hot and fresh. The menu has a nice selection. As a regular they remember your name and favorite foods. We have had many family gatherings here over the years. The food is... More
