Possibly the worst place to eat in Norfolk. The food is good but the service we received the few times we have been there has driven us to decide to never return. The waiter just filled our water glasses and walked away. When he returned we asked for some soft drinks and he was seemed upset and some what annoyed... More

Food is amazing but the service is very bad. I have eaten there a few times and every time the waiter does not even offer us any drink, he just pours water and leaves. When I asked him for a soft drink he quickly relied "NO FREE REFILLS" in an angry manner. Then a few minutes later he seated another... More

I have eaten at Panda Garden for years and years. Wonderful food and service. In the last several months I have seen comments on social media regarding rude service. I just had such a hard time believing it. We decided to stop and eat on a Sunday late afternoon about 4:35. There was one other table literally one table. We... More

When I am in Norfolk for work, this is where I want to eat, I always get sezchuan beef and hot and sour soup. It is always delicious. FYI you can pay separately at cash register, just remember your number.

The service was very slow and the waiter was rude. He didn't offer us anything but water to drink. The eggs rolls tasted freezer burned. The other food was very bland. I got the chicken and garlic sauce and it was listed as spicy. It had no flavor at all and was not in the least bit spicy. If you... More

Always good, usually very fast for either eat in or carry out. The first place our kids eat when they are back in town.

We dined here a few weeks ago for their weekend luncheon buffet. I tried every item on the buffet. The food was incredibly salty, so salty that you could barely taste the actual ingredients. Since it was a buffet, I really can't comment on the service. But if you don't LOVE the taste of salt, avoid this place!

I called in a carry out order. I wanted to add beef and shrimp to my chicken lo mein. I was very rudely told that they only had chicken lo mein, not combination lo mein. Really, you cant add the beef and shrimp to make a customer happy. Food is only average. With the terrible service a Red X put... More

I have been going to Panda Garden for years. The wait staff is very friendly and are always nice to my kids. Lunch specials are well priced and portions are just right. Sunday buffet is also very good and always well stocked. Only complaint is that they need larger water glasses and food at lunch is not always piping hot.
