I love this place. We stop here usually on the way to Laughlin for lunch. I have never had a bad meal here or service that wasn't top notch.

Have eaten at many of the local Chinese restaurants and this is the one we keep coming back to. Our out of town friends and family that have eaten here ask to go every time they're in town. Amazing food and good prices.

This place is actually called Panda Garden. It's pretty decent, considering the location and the very run-down condition of the building. The service was brash and off-putting, but whatever - it would probably be as bad or worse at a roadside fast food joint, which...More

The Thai place was closed, so we opted for Panda Garden, as it is now called. About 7 tables were occupied, plenty of space was available. It was a bit after 7:30 pm. most people had probably eaten already. When nobody acknowledged us standing there,...More
