Panda Inn - Ontario reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Whenever I have a Special
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/21/2012
    Whenever I have a Special Occasion where there is a need for a large room, I use Panda Inn. The food and service are great. They have a good variety of food an drink. The thing I like the most is, the servers and resturant in general do not make it seem like we need to rush and get out, like some other places do.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    To be honest, being that it was our first brunch at Panda inn we were very disappointed. first off we had not been made aware that we had a choice not to get alcohol so we had Mai Tai and mimosa. Once the drinks arrived 15 min into our eating. It made our stop eating and made us feel bloated for both me and my fiance. We had to stop eating, we never were able to sample a lot of the dishes we came to from coming to Panda inn duing NON brunch time with family. It was very sad. We ended up just eating some grapes and some clear soup for both of our stomachs.

    Perhaps it was Sunday and rainy, but both the food and the service were awful!!! We waited 45 minutes for our order and although the plate was nice and hot, the food was cold. When I complained, they microwaved it, as opposed to bring me a fresh entree. It was four different entrees at our table and all of them were drowning in soy sauce. Wow! What restaurant does that? I thought soy sauce was an optional choice for the customer.

  • RESERVATIONS ARE MEANINGLESS HERE
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 2/19/2012
    We have used Open Table for reservations here 2 times. Both times they claimed they didn't have our reservation. This time I asked questions and was told I must make the reservation at least 24 hours in advance because "they don't check the computer". This, of course, is unacceptable as was the fact that we had to wait over 45 minutes while they seated everyone before us. (Same thing happened the other time. If not for having guests, I would have walked. Food was good, service was barely adequate, all in all not what I am used to from other Panda Inns.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/11/2012
    We always enjoy Panda Inn to celebrate special occasions when there is a group of us. Made my reservations online for the 1st time, 2 wks in advance. Rec'd a confirmation that my request was accepted. Was dissappointed when I arrived at the restaurant to find that I was not granted the private room (8 in party)as I requested. Should have been told when I rec'd confirmation that a $50- deposit was required in advance for the room. Would have gladly done that had I been informed. Needless to say the private room was not available to us. This put a little damper on the party.

    I love panda inn that's why I chose to celebrate my birthday celebration there the only problem was our server put our order in wrong I did the ordering and was ordering for 5 people and I ordered a family size chicken chow mein and a family size orange chicken and honey walnut shrimp the food came out some what quick and when she served us we just had a double portion of everything do we had to send it back she left our rice we had to wait 20 more minutes our rice got cold. I'm a server at cocoa I have been there for 5 years and I just gel we didn't have that great of an experience she could have left the food and brought more or take our rice too.i wasn't happy with our service one of my friends recived her cup of water with a crack in it

    I had never eaten at Panda Inn before but it was my grand daughters thirteenth birthday and I told her she could pick any place she'd like to eat and she chose Panda Inn. I suggest PF Changs but she insisted on Panda Inn so like any good grand father I said it's your birthday. I must say I was very pleased with the food and service. More importantly my grand daughter was happy and nothing else mattered, not only did she/I learn a lesson. She learned that her what she thinks matters and I learned that she's even smarter than I knew she is.

  • Our waitor brought each dish
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/19/2012
    Our waitor brought each dish one at a time. I did not care for this method. I would like to have had our entrees on the table all at once. One lady in our group does not eat shrimp so she just sat there waiting for them to remove the dish (after we had eaten) and then waited for the next itm. Kind of strange. Also the waitor said with 5 people we would need two items of the same dish yet when he brought the dish I didn't know if it really was two items. I have been to this place before and they always brought out two of the same item at the same time. But all in all it was good, but not great as it was last year.

    Our server was really nice but i think he had a big party he was serving as well. Which caused longer wait times for our table. Also our food came out cold they took it back and when it came out again it was barely warm. We were starving at that point so we ate it anyways. Had flavor probably really good if it was hot. I havent been there in about ten years and it was disappointing

    The Panda Inn is the BEST fine-dining Mandarin restaurant. My friend and I especially love going for our annual Christmas dinner together. We love the walnut shrimp and calamari appetizer. All the entrees that we have ordered are excellent! We always get the best service. And be sure to get some of their green-tea ice cream.... yummy!

    Panda Inn has a very nostalgic, yet simple charm to it. If properly seated, it can be a nice romantic dinner for two, a fun family restaurant or even great venue for business meetings. The private rooms with large round tables, which seat up to 12 peaople, is perfect for special event's like birthdays, group dinner or meetings. The service is very good and the food is great. I highly recommend Panda Inn.

    Service was great. We had reservations and we were seated right away. The waiter was friendly and attentive. Kept our beverages full. Food is great. Try a Panda Mai Tai. The wonton soup is excellent. Entrees are served family style. Our favorite is the honey walnut shrimp. Large shrimp in a honey glaze with a generous amount of candied walnuts. Everything is very fresh and portions are generous. The They have smaller rooms separated by French doors for larger groups. The Sunday Brunch is a favorite. In addition to the wide selection of favorite entrees, fresh wonton soup station, fruit, sushi, and dessert. For small groups, Birthdays, families and date nights. A fortune cookie dipped in white chocolate completes the experience

    The food selections af the Panda Inn were good, but the food arrived and it was barely warm and became cold very quickly, within just a few minutes. I ordered the egg drop soup, and it was hot, just right, but the food wasn't even steaming when it arrived. The food was also very bland and the chicken flavorless (although not undercooked). I go to Panda Express often, and I think the food there was better, and I expected more from a sit-down restaurant.
