Reviewed 24 July 2014

The food was ok if you like a heavy dose of Msg. Waitress abrupt. I prefer Red Lotus on North Magnolia. cheaper and better food. Panda is a chain and those who haven't tasted food at Red Lotus will be satisfied. I won't be returning to Panda. Not a peaceful dining experience and poor service when restaurant was empty.

This cute little restaurant sits in a strip mall with a few other little restaurants, stores, and a major grocery supermarket. The food is very delicious and satisfying. You get a lot for your money here. The atmosphere and decor is very relaxing. The staff is friendly and courteous. The price is very reasonable for what you get when you order your meals. My husband and I dined at this restaurant this past Monday, April 21, 2014. We will be dining here again in the near future.

Look it's hard enough to find a good Chinese restaurant in the Lakeside/Santee area but the Panda Country Restaurant (not to be confused with the Panda Inn) is the place to go for your Chinese food fix... great taste and atmosphere and the prices or great too... you can order carry out but there is no delivery...

Sure it's in a grocery store strip mall wedged between a yogurt shop and an L&L BBQ, but they've been there forever, cranking out tasty Chinese menu items that appeal to the American palette. Interior is nice and comfortable, the service is friendly and attentive, and has that Chinese Restaurant feel that you want. Take-out is quick and efficient. Plenty of sugary and greasy dishes to satisfy the American taste bud, but they also have more authentic Asian fare to satisfy those seeking something a little more like what Chinese folks actually eat. Good Santee staple.

In a small mall with a grocery store. Been in business 35 years. Really good chinese food, clean restaurant, good effecient wait staff.
the favorites on the menu are all excellent, we have tried most of them. They serve most of the normal chinese dishes and add extras to their favorites. Scallops, lobster, chicken, beef with vegetables is #1in the menu and my #1.
