I would say Panda East is a lot better. This place is still good, but the atmosphere is a little weird. Still good Chinese food!

When I moved to Amherst 12 years ago I tried it and found nothing special. Over the years I went back may be two more times. Recently I heard that they changed the chef, so I tried three times in a row. Conclusion? Hit or...More
