Panda is definitely a fast-food, but with that said, it's really not so bad and a good value for the price. The staff, despite the turnover, is very friendly. When you order a dish that isn't ready to be served, they offer you a free drink while you're waiting, which is very nice. They also offer you samples of the food, which is great when you're debating among items. The calorie information is available for each dish, and which is an eye-opener and very helpful for those watching calories. The restaurant is kept very clean, and it's in a great location. Whenever I'm out and about and don't feel like cooking, Panda Express is on my short-list of possibilities.
