    First appearance is everything and it didn't look like the same place seen on Instagram! I had a party of 6 and the table comfortably sat 4 but thats where we were put, so my party had to squeeze into the seats which was very cramped due to another table near that was vacant and where we could have sat. We were told our table was limited to 90 minutes which was understood but it took our waiter 10-15 minuses to come and make his debut! We ate and watched and were done in time. Food was ok, drinks were amazing! Space very tight, all the backgrounds seen to take pics I didn't see, some were found but they were in stairwells where the kitchen staff kept going in and out. Overall to say I travelled from CT it was a waste of money and time, the experience was ok but my hopes were exciting from just looking off social media. Its not what I expected it to be me and my party were upset

    These spot is just like the rest of these restaurant now a days , it’s nice inside for instagram pictures. The food is mediocre at best it came somewhat cold like lukewarm food if I just ordered it should be piping hot ! The host was took long to bring us what we needed , it was super cold in the place . The DJ was cool but the music was too loud you can’t even have a decent conversation with the person your at dinner with . The chicken satay sauce was too thick to the point couldn’t enjoy The chicken dumplings were good The chicken and broccoli was somewhat cold I got the Moscow mule it was pretty good If you want real Asian fusion go to Phillipes or mr chows or even Taos This place is just another spot trynna grab attention because the trendy ambiance it think it’s providing Probably wouldn’t go there again

    It’s a nice spot for sure, but definitely overpriced. They charge an arm and a leg for small portions of food. Also I put it was my birthday in my reservation but I got no Birthday perk, but another table did. It was nice for pictures and a little turn up, but I don’t know when next I’d even visit.

    The restaurant is poorly ran we waited for our main course well over 35mijs while everyone sitting near by got there’s. You have a live DJ playing the music so loud that you can’t even have a conversation with the person you’re dining with? Was it a night club or restaurant because it felt more lounge ish than a restaurant, that’s horrible… even calling to reschedule my reservation speaking to the host I could barely hear her on the first phone… it’s overall horrible and I wouldn’t go back, some may like it but or me taking my lady out to a restaurant for dinner and only to feel as though as if I’m in a night club was there worst thing… 2/5 stars

    My experience at panda was amazing from the ambiance to the fresh food food and the bomb drinks. Imy favorite part was the personal pictures the lady came around to take of people, they frame it and sell it to you, if you LOVE pictures that’s great! The decorations and art sis PERFECT for a good picture! They even call you to make sure if your still coming if they see hour running late! Wasn’t to crazy about our waiter Allison wasn’t very attentive at all, maybe because her tip was already included in the bill👎🏽 Only negative thing about the experience the main parts were great but the specific waiter wasn’t the best nor was knowledgable about recommendations. Anywho I will be back next time I’m in NY!

    PandaResponded on August 31, 2022Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Cherise! We're so sorry to hear that our waitress was not attentive or informative as she should of been during your recent visit. We will have a talk with our team to ensure this situation doesn't occur again. Overall we're very happy to hear you had a great experience while dining with us. Hope to see you soon.

    The vibe, ambiance, and food was really good however the service sucked! This restaurant has hookah and was told by the waiter we needed to order food first before we can smoke. Which is not good being that they have a 90 mins sitting limit. The food comes fast af, by the time you get your hookah it’s time to get up smh! The waiter also told us we would have to flag down the hookah waiter ourselves. (Confused). He also kept forgetting our drink orders smh. The service made this restaurant a 2 but since i enjoyed the vibe so much i rated a 4!

We will have a staff meeting to let our team know this is unacceptable, and to make sure this does not happen again. We would love for you to give us another chance to make your next visit, better than your last one.

    Celebrated my birthday with my ladies over brunch! Came a bit early and waited at the bar for my party. The bartender and waiters were so welcoming and laid back. Provided great service. We brought a hookah also and it was good, lasted for awhile. Food was tasty and the portions were decent, for brunch you will get everything on the brunch menu so if you like a certain dish you’d just have to order on the side. We had the frozen peach sangria, martinis, & regular margaritas I think everyone was happy with their drinks. They were so good and very smooth so it does creep up on you lol. DJ was popping, it was definitely a vibe! The only disappointment I had was being seated in the back by the bar, with our large party I was hoping to be seated in the front with the beautiful chairs and background, there’s also more lighting in the front as the back of the restaurant is very dark. Overall the experience was great, would definitely dine here again for a date or ladies night.

    The restaurant is such a hit!! I am so happy they placed a restaurant of such caliber in Harlem. The decor and graphics of this place are amazing! From the big red Chinese inspired door to the pandas on the wall, the ambiance was defiantly top tier. The waiter was cool, he checked on us often but not too often to the point where it was annoying. The drinks were strong af, I had the NY Sidecar and it was just so amazing. The drinks were small though for $16. The wait for the food wasn't too long. We ordered hookah in the meantime which I LOVEEEEE when restaurants have hookah. Only thing is it was $50 for hookah 🙁 The food was good, it says it "serves two" but in actuality it serves ONE unless you eat 5 spoons of rice and get full, if not, get that side order for yourself. The quanity wasn't worth the price but the quality kind of was. The bill between 3 people came up to almost $400 which was $60 on automatic gratuity, smh, All in all. It was great vibes, great music, i would definitely visit again when I have extra money to blow.

    It was cute. The hostess didn’t seat us in the area with the nice graffiti like I had initially asked. When we were done eating I saw that there was nobody sitting in that area which was somewhat disappointing. The lobster fried rice was amazing. The sweet and sour chicken was good, but they could’ve given more for the price. The drinks were great. The broccoli was tasty, but the stems were tough. I’d give it another try.

    The food was not it at all. Overpriced Chinese food. White Rice that comes with entree was very dry & hard, lo mein and fried rice were flavorless, the dumplings & wontons were the best thing on the menu. Creme brûlée was okay. Server was nice & decor Was great for photos but probably won’t be back for a while. Price: 4 people $200
