This was our favorite place in Lawrence - family owned and great Chinese food. But they have retired now and closed the restaurant at the end of April 2016. We wish dear Lucy, Joe and all the family the very best and a happy retirement!!

The spicy cold noodle dishes, duck specialties and beef stomach and tripe dishes are above what one can normally get in the midwest. Top of the Lawrence food scene.

My husband ate here for the first time tonight. The service was top notch and the food was some of the best Chinese we have ever eaten. We were luck enough to have Lucy join us at the end of our dinner for a little chitchat. She is a wonderful lady!

I ate here for the first time last night and the food was great. They use fresh ingredients and don't cover your food in thick sodium filled sauces to a point where you can't taste what you are eating. Definitely recommend eating here.

The food here is made in house very fresh and flavorful. I have tried a lot from the menu and haven't been disappointed. They have authentic Chinese food, thai food, a great sea food buffet and many other tasty choices on the menu. The jasmine tea is a great accompaniment to any meal. The service is outstanding, just like going... More

There are many choices in this college town, but we return over and over to Panda Garden for the consistency of the food and the wonderful family atmosphere. The owners, who are from Taiwan, genuinely care about their customers and greet us by name. There are many healthy choices here, with lots of fresh vegetables and less oily dishes than... More

Decided to have food delivered to our motel. As recommended by the front desk staff we chose Panda Garden. They have a large menu selection reasonably priced. We enjoyed the shrimp egg foo young, sweet and sour special and almond chicken. All very hot and flavorful especially for take out. Delivered within half hour.

You will find a comprehensive menu of delicious Chinese dishes that will satisfy your taste buds and fill you up at the same time. In addition they offer a good selection of Thai dishes and a small vegetarian and American selection. All of the food I have had was tasty and satisfying and the service is always friendly.

We had dinner there on Mother's Day. A buffet was available which had a good assortment and all very delicious. The owner stopped by our table and chatted, and was quite sociable. Very nice indeed.
