First, the food. This full-service outpost of the Panda Inn fast-food has a great menu, definitely better than the quick-service locations. My favorite item here is the tea-smoked duck. Good food in a nice atmosphere. We always experience good service, but this time we ordered food to take-out - and this restaurant saved a potential negative customer experience. In short,... More

As a pescatarian for the past 20+ years, I have never had much trouble with food choices at Chinese restaurants. The only option for me here was one vegetable soup. Every other entree (even vegetables!) had chicken broth in it. To be fair, after much discussion, the chef made a special order for me with vegetable broth but it literally... More

A friend of mine took us to this restaurant. I'm not usually a huge fan of Chinese food, but this food was above and beyond. The servings are huge, so we shared many different dishes. All of the options were fantastic! They even made my friend Ginger Chicken, which wasn't even on the menu. I would definitely love to go... More

My friends suggested Panda Inn as we were leaving the Disneyland area in Anaheim. I had never heard of La Palma, CA so I was glad they knew the place. We arrived on a Sunday in time for brunch. The place was packed and the aroma of the food was enticing. We had about a 15 minute wait before getting... More

Waiters were rude, in a hurry and treated us like we were just someone to get in and get out quick. The food was just less than average and not fresh and enjoyable, but rather like it's all in pots to serve up on request. I got the spicy eggplant/tofu and it was fair, husband got the General Pao Chicken,... More

After a frustrating evening of attempting to find a restaurant on Halloween, my boyfriend and i stumbled on this place. What a gem! The staff was personable, quick and courteous. The restaurant was clean and the decor was great! I loved the little teapots and statues on the walls. The booths were spread out giving it a roomy feel. The... More

Great to have a group, so you can order lots of dishes to share. We love coming here for lunch or dinner for the best Chinese food in the area. They have special dining rooms for groups that are private and cozy. We have used them for parties and business meetings too. A nice touch is to end your meal... More

This was our first visit and we had 8 in our dinner party. We ate family style, and everything was very good: Walnut shrimp, fried rice, white rice, Phoenix Fired chicken, Crispy upside down noodles and Aromatic Shrimp. More than enough to eat, our waitress kept our drinks full and we didn't have more than a 5 minute wait to... More

The food is very good here. What I like most is, that they have private dining areas for parties of ten or more. We have had many birthday celebrations here and the portions of food is more then enough. We always return for more.
