Went to lunch with coworkers on a Thursday, it was a last lunch outing for one of our coworkers who is leaving the company and one of my coworkers suggested we get Chinese food, now still being new to our area we didn't know where to go, so whipped out the Yelp App and searched for Chinese food near here and found Panda Garden, so the place was set and off we went.We were a party of 5 and we didn't have to wait got seated pretty quickly for being high noon, sat at our tables and looked the menu, I was impressed with the selection they have for their daily lunch specials, and if those didn't interest you, they have a great looking lunch menu too. And the daily lunch specials even run on sat too, thought that was a nice touch as well.I wish I caught our servers name, I believe she might have been the hostess as well, she was very friendly and very nice, we all told her it was our 1st time there she asked us were we work and just had conversations with us, felt like a nice family place.I ordered the Gang Pang Chicken lunch combo with Lo Mein Noodles, I wanted to try something I never had before & something that was spicy, and this dish looked like the winner for me. The chicken was lighted battered and covered in this great tasting sauce and it had sliced green onions & fresh jalapenos, and with the lo mien noodles, that dish was delish!! I just need to remember to ask for more heat next time, but that's because I love things spicy hot!Happy to found Panda Garden and looking forward to adding them to my fast lunch time eats!

Wow! Yeah I said wow. This was some really good Chinese food. It is payday and my coworkers wanted to go out to lunch. One of them was craving Chinese food. So Yelp to the rescue. We found this place and my coworker realized she used to go here all the time and said it was good. So off we went.It is close to work so that is good. The prices weren't bad so that is good. Decor was nice a little dark inside but still good. The tables had tablecloths with Chinese Zodiac place mats on them with a sheet of glass or plexiglass covering all of it. Everyone was checking their signs and their families signs and joking around about it. A nice distraction while waiting for our order. Service was great. They had no problem doing multiple checks and the food came out pretty quick. So did the drinks. The wait staff, which I think were the owners, were very attentive. Drinks always refilled and asking us if we worked in the area and where we worked. Also asked us if we had been there before. When we said no they brought us over take out menus.Now to the food. It was so good. Best Chinese food I have had in awhile. I ordered the Moo Goo Gai Pan. The white sauce that was on it was amazing. The chicken and veggies were perfect and the fried rice was really good. Everybody raved about their different meals. Not one complaint. They got us in and out with plenty of time to get back to work. That was even with 5 people in our group.I will definitely be back to try everything else on the menu. So far away from that other Panda it isn't even worth mentioning. Even cheaper then them too. Great find. High five coworker.

This place is pretty close to the house and I was hoping to find my go-to-Chinese place. Everyone has to have a go-to-Chinese place for those Tuesday nights when you don't feel like cooking and you just want to pick up your food because you don't feel like putting on anything fancier than sweatpants. It looks like I didn't find my go-to Chinese place. . .Meal: I have only been here once; I went with the chicken fried rice.Taste: Pretty decent taste. It was actually some of the best fried rice I have had in the valley. 8 out of 10.Value: Portion sizes were decent and seemed to be consistent with the price. The value isn't going to blow away, but its about spot on. 3 out of 5.Service/Cleanliness: Service here is incredibly slow. Really . . . . slooooooooowwwwwwww. I even noticed a couple of customers were really pissed about how slow the service was. There were at least 3 or 4 waiters when I was there, but there was maybe 7 tables filled with people. 5 out of 10.Atmosphere: Typical "mom and pop" Chinese restaurant decor. They have TV's running and it would be nice if they turned them off as they were annoying and distracting. 2 out of 5.Overall: There better Thai and Chinese places within a ten minute drive. I would suggest spending the extra minutes of driving to get something that is special. 18 out of 30 points, 2 out of 5 stars.

Been fans for years and order take out on a regular basis. Is this place under new ownership or management? Both orders were not prepared correctly and had very wilty broccoli. Even the spring rolls were different, not sure what the change is but don't like it.

I absolutely love Panda Garden. This is my favorite Chinese-Inspired restaurant in the valley, the pricy sit-down, dress-up places in Scottsdale and Downtown phoenix notwithstanding. Every dish I've tried has been delicious, and the service is very fast (normally under 5 minutes for a table of two) and extremely friendly. If you find yourself fiending for a Chinese fix, and are in the Ahwatukee area, you must stop by Panda Garden!

A solid lunch. They have a daily lunch special for $5.50 and all the other lunch items are $5.75. Well worth it. I will go back for sure.
Food was so delicious, service was extremely friendly, and the place looked very cozy and clean. Chicken was all white meat and tasted amazing! What more could you ask for ...?
