We had been hiking all day and just wanted a good meal. Disappointment galore. Staff not nice and food was average at best. Cold. Had been sitting a whole. Blah!

We often stop here in transit because it is cheap, quick, and dependably good. I can't say that my experiences here have ever been bad across about 10 or 11 visits. In contrast to the Panda Express in my own town, this place prepares the...More

Two veggie food options. I received a veggie bowl, good portion size, but did not receive any rice with it. The cream cheese rangoons were crisp and had a fair amount of filling. Service was friendly.

The food is very good when fresh. I recommend going in and seeing the food. Sometimes you have to ask for fresh items. They don't have a problem accomadating.

Greasy, tasteless, imitation Chinese food at best. I found it amusing that they consider hot and sour soup to be "seasonal." I always thought that was a staple at a "Chinese" restaurant.

By far the worst Chinese in Mt. Vernon. As typical for all Panda locations, the food is "generic out of a bag" and, for the most part, tasteless. People and service are fine, just bad product.
