Good food and good prices. Not fancy, but filling and good service. We go here a few times a year and always glad we did.

We had mixed dinners here. The service was good but they got very busy and that seemed to strain the staff. I got the general t'so chicken and my wife got chicken lo mein which she thought lacked flavor. We would try this place again though.

We were stunned to have stumbled onto this excellent and friendly place. Extensive sushi menu, and chinese dishes galore. We were impressed and will return.

A small restaurant featuring Asian cuisine with a huge variety from sushi to chicken fried rice to beef with snow peas. The restaurant is usually crowded at dinner time and for good reason as the food seems very authentic. They offer great take out service as well.

The food here was quite good. They had items the kids could enjoy, and the seared tuna salad was very good.

We enjoy sitting at the sushi bar, nice talking to the sushi chef and watching him at work, like an art show! I've never been disappointed with any of their rolls...have my favorite and enjoy trying the Chef's Choice, can never go wrong with their surprise! Clean and comfortable place to enjoy a roll before getting back on the road!

We adore authentic, savory, and fresh Oriental cuisine. We live in Alpine. We've lived close to China Town in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Panda Machi is wonderful and a bargain! For around $7 you can get a lunch of Three-Way Kong Paw (steak, chicken, shrimp, vegies, a spicy sauce, peppers, rice), a salad, appetizers on the plate, and simmering... More

This was the closest restaurant to our hotel and we were happy to see it was Chinese. The restaurant was not full but, as we found out after being seated, they do a tremendous take-out business. The take out line was next to our table which made our dinner less pleasant than we had hoped. Hot/sour soup had nice flavor... More

We have eaten here a few times and always very pleased with our meal . They have a great menu and a great selection to choose from. The kids like the food and there is something for everyone. Worth the visit.
