Panda Palace never looks busy from the outside, but once you walk in, you hear the phone ringing because they do so much take out. The Orange Chicken and the Sweet and Sour Chicken are great. Sometimes, I'll buy just the rice to put it with something I have at home. The staff are friendly, and the food is served... More

My mother-in-law just had here. It is her favorite restaurant. We had almost two down family members. they seated us all comfortably. Chinese is not my personal favorite, but I had a sizzling seafood platter. It was good, and really was sizzling. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals.

Panda Palace has been around for a very long time. There is a reason it has prevailed while restaurants around it have closed. The owner and staff are delightful and really make you feel welcome. The food is good, plentiful and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for!! Take out or eat in both are available.

I am hoping that the main chef was off the day we were there as the food was terrible. The wonton soup had grissel in the wonton, the shrimp dish was very salty. The chicken and ginger had no taste. Our waitress, Ann, was lovely, however. If you crave Chinese food in Vernon and want to try it, don't go... More

We used to use Panda Palace as our only Chinese place but the food quality has dramatically declined over the past 2 years. We only use this place in a pinch now since they deliver. Wish they would bring back their old chef and the quality of food they used to have.

My family was looking a Chinese restaurant in the area someone suggested this place. The staff is very nice. The place is ok. Smelled alittle weird. But the food. O. M. G. Absolutely horrible. Not one person in my party could even get through half of their plate. Crab ragoons. A mushy mess. Poo-poo plater. We had ordered 2 of... More

A nice family run Chinese restaurant that has had our patronage for many years. We have done both eat-in and take-out. Always can count on good food and bright smiles.

Very nice gentleman at register BUT the food is HORRIBLE. I'm sorry, but it is. Recently moved to area looking for Chinese food. Boneless ribs VERY DRY. They DONT put red sauce on. Only gave me maybe 8 strips. The pork fried rice was 99% onions. Made mistake with this one. Threw it all away.

This is my go to place for Chinese food in our area. Panda has been in Vernon for a long time. I usually dine in, and I like the tablecloth and real china. Servers are always prompt and courteous. Lunch menu is a great bargain and much better than any fast food joint. About the same price, but nicer tables... More

The food here has completely gone down hill. Bland soggy food. Gristle in the dark meat in my Panda Trio, couldn't even try to chew. Gross. I will not be eating here again.
