Every visit to Panda Express is consistent. Good food, adequate portions with no waste and the food tastes fresh. My favorite is a bowl of black pepper chicken with chow mein. It's cool how you can choose your side: noodles, white rice, brown rice or mixed vegetables. Dishes are pretty heavy on the salt.

This place was pretty good when it first opened, but it has fallen to the same trap that most huge chains fall into: bland food that has been neglected too long and dries out, or just tastes like frozen, warmed over stuff you get anywhere else. Some of the items aren't bad, but there is a small, genuine Chinese restaurant... More

Having never been to this chain, I now know why. The first try at the drive thru was about 830pm., too late in the evening I later learned. There were 3 cars ahead of me and 2 behind, so I was in for the long haul. I heard 2 cars ask about Orange Chicken (a house specialty proclaimed throughout!) to... More

Just encountered my worst ever dining experience. Drink machine broken, told employee, nobody fixed. They ran out of Beijing Beef, 20min wait. They forgot to put two of our entrees in the carry-out bag, made a mistake when replacing them, had to replace again. Absolutely useless staff

This is a brand new place, right on busy Archer Road. The food is very good; you can see it being prepared behind the line. Have been there three times to find friendly staff, a clean restaurant and a good variety of selections. One caveat: they have no sweetener so if you order unsweetened tea, bring your own sweetener. They... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way back from Florida and all I can say is yum yum. It has a great selection of chinese fast food and you can see the chefs cooking at the back. They let you sample anything. It is very busy but the line moves quickly. The place is very clean and the food... More
