Just ordered delivery of large General Tso (10.95), Chicken lo mein (6.95) and Chicken fingers (6.95). With tax and delivery it came to $33, so the delivery fee must have been extortional. All the food was cold, with a delivery within half an hour. Not sure how they pulled that off. For $11, I would have expected enough general tso... More

Panda Garden is a downtown establishment that offers fresh, well prepared Asian cuisine. It's not as saccharine as most Chinese American restaurants and you can tell there's a bit of extra effort to please the palate and the eyes. Radish and turnip flowers adorn the plates, the vegetables are ultra fresh and crunchy, the tea is hot and complimentary and... More

It was the buffet that helped us decide to eat at Panda but the four of us regretted our decision. Our waiter was pleasant but that is not enough. The food was not delicious and the buffet was very small. Hot tea good and staff pleasant

My husband and I were looking for something different on our last trip to Bangor. We usually get something in the Hogan Rd., Stillwater Ave. area as it is close to where we stay. Decided we wanted Chinese and I went online and found Panda Garden. We opted for take out. My husband and I shared some dishes. It was... More

We had driven by several times and finally decided to stop for dinner one night. We had typical items as from pork fried rice, chicken fingers, crab Rangoon and egg rolls. None of it was hot, the fried food was very greasy. No flavor in the rice and it tasted old.

Eat in or take out the finest Oriental food in the heart of Downtown Bangor. Daily specials showcase the chef's skills.

There were 10 of us in a group. We had the best service and the food came out hot and yummy. Never had to ask for refills on drinks. Waitress was there when we needed her. It was a fantastic experience and would Definately go back for another meal!

This place was highly-reviewed online. I ordered a shrimp and chili lunch special with brown rice and House Special fried rice with brown rice. The shrimp dish had plenty of shrimp, but was drowned out by a weird onion-based sauce that was far too sweet. The fried rice was pathetic. Tiny minced pieces of meat and a few measly pieces...

This place has been around a very long time and the food is consistently good. I had the General Tso's chicken which was 'ok' but the rice and steamed vegetables were very good. Service is always good and it's reasonably priced.
