Never going back! I went in with a baby and only after I started eating did they decide to inform me that I’d be charged for the baby as well! Had I known beforehand I would of just walked out. They done exactly the same to the lady sitting across from me. They’re going to lose a lot of custom if they keep on doing that. … Read Full Review

It was a basic buffet type Chinese restaurant with cheap food and high priced drinks. The food was too salty and made me very thirsty. Some of the food was a little dry and tasteless but a few things were tasty. I asked one of the waitresses how long she had been working there and was told that she didn't work there and that she was training without pay and without being trained and might not get the job. So be nice to your waiters and waitresses as they may be working for free. For this reason… Read Full Review

I drive all the way from North Yorkshire for a 'day out' in Sunderland. I first discovered The Panda restaurant back in 2004. I would go up to watch my team and, was recommended this place by fellow season ticket holders. Not just the local 'Machem's' but, supporters from all over.
There is a wide range of freshly cooked dishes. I recommend the huge green lipped muscles.
Sunderland's coastline is a wonderful place to go afterwards. The fresh sea air is the perfect way to help… Read Full Review

The quality of the food wasn't the best i have tatsted, it was ok. It is very child friendly but the service is not very good. I did not like how close together the tables were and how much noise there was. It is not somewhere I would go I wanted a quiet night out, it is far too loud for relaxing. The food was nice but very sickly, it was very good the different varieties off different food. You are getting your money's worth here. I would of liked to known that the atmosphere is very loud… Read Full Review

I absolutely love eating here, it has great food and because it's all you can eat it's great value for money. I would come here everyday to eat if I could afford.
It is easily my favourite place to eat and I come here every chance I get, their egg fried rice it to die for. It is absolutely amazing... More than once I have simply just got a plate of egg fried rice :)
There's nothing at panda's which I don't like, the only thing I've had trouble with is confusion with the staff regarding drinks… Read Full Review

The food atPanda Oriental Buffet is absolutely excellent. Every time i have been i have always had a good experience :).
The price is very good for what you can get out of it. Its all you can eat so how can you complain.
There is plenty to choose from such as vegetarian dishes and meat dishes. I haven't really experienced any bad problems.
Only thing is if you get seated upstairs you have to come down stairs to get your food, that is only bad point about Panda. Brilliant staff, very helpful
Good… Read Full Review
