We are locals but when we want a tasty, quick meal on the run we stop here. We order the meats only in one cup increments or maybe over the veggies. Even at non meal times our food seems fresh and hot.

Went there because we couldn't find the other Asian restaurant we wanted to go to. 🐼 express is a fast food restaurant, but a very good one - all dishes pre-prepared but freshly cooked - tasted really really good (had two plates and white rice)....More

went to Pandas for dinner. Honey walnut shrimp is absolutely fantastic. You get alot of food for your money. So worth going for lunch or dinner.

Their food is good, we always buy the chow mein and a side dish. Nice place to sit down to eat. Pretty clean.

Although the menu is narrow (they really need to add more noodle choices - especially wide noodles), the food is good for a fast food chain. I will go there again.
