Panda InnAdd to mybook
After a few bad experiences I decided to give the old Panda Inn another chance. I went to their website and it was down, so I called to see what was wrong and they had no idea what the issue was.
The hostess was very helpful and told me what their lunch specials were and I decided on Gen Tso's chicken. I then preceded to order an egg roll when I was informed that I was unable to order one egg roll, I had to order... view more
As I recently found out, the Panda Inn on Bethel at Go Down is under new management. The new chef brings his authentic Chinese culinary skills to a refurbished interior. The food can be ordered from an ""American"" menu version or a traditional Chinese version. It's all good but if you're not used to traditional food it may be a surprise sometimes (note: the snails are not what we would call escargot).

I'm allergic to peanuts and although there were not nuts in my lo-mein, it soon became evident that they didn't clean the Wok well enough berfore cooking my dish. It was a mild reaction, but had it been someone else, they could have died.Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
Stopped in on a Sunday at 5:30pm. One other party in the whole restaurant. 20 minutes after ordering still no appetizer or refills on drinks. Wait staff standing at the bar chatting among themselves. Got up and walked to door. Girl at cash register talking on phone while I stood there. Still no response. I had to interrupt her and tell her the service was slow and unacceptable. Only reply was ""sorry"". My dining com... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
Don't go to this place if you don't want to be strong armed!
My girlfriend and I went to this Panda Inn last night for dinner and were horribly treated. We sat down and were never asked for a drink order. We then ordered and when the food came out, the waiter brought me white rice instead of the fried I had requested. He also had no pacing on the food and brought out the dinner at the same time as the appetizer. ... view more
If you want good ethnic food, find out where they eat. Panda Inn is popular with local Chinese, and for good reason. The trick for Americans is to know what to order. First, ask for the Chinese menu - otherwise you will get the lame ""americanized"" standards (General Tso's, Sweet&Sour Pork, Orange Shrimp, etc.).\r

This is one of the few authentic Chinese restaurants in Columbus. Please don't waste your time and money on an Americanized dish like General Tso's Chicken, only because the authentic stuff is so wonderful! The menu is huge, and the value is great. Lunch specials are really cheap and taste great. The staff is wonderful and friendly. Seating and service are great. The owner knows me well and can almost order for me.
