Terrible place to eat. Dirty! My friend found a roaches in the food, never came back there again after that. Dirty counters where they leave the teas sitting there all day exposed. The waitresses will refill your drink by taking your glass all the way back and filling it up with someone else left over drink of all I know. Why wouldn't they just refill it right there on the table where you can see. Bad experience. Not going back there again.
The afternoon manager at this location needs to be IMMEDIATELY fired.Yesterday afternoon (7/2/2012 - 230pm), my deceased father's 80-year-old girlfriend was at this restaurant in Fort Walton, FL. She goes there once a week, and when my father was alive they were there at least TWICE a week from the DAY this location opened.When the waitress FINALLY came around and asked if she needed a second cup of coffee when she was DONE eating, she held up her cup and said "What do you think?" I know this woman, and there is NO WAY she said it in any rude manner.After a few minutes, your manager came out, and in front of all the customers in a full restaurant, loudly said:"You were rude to my waitress, and I will NOT stand for that. I can tell just by looking at you that you are a rude person. If you go home and look in the mirror, you will see a rude person (he said this twice). Now I want you to leave. We don't need customers like you." He NEVER gave her an opportunity to tell her side, NEVER asked her what happened. Just spewed his garbage that should NEVER EVER come from a manager's mouth to a customer OR a staff member. She left your restaurant sick, and this customer for years and years is now AFRAID to go back.There are two afternoon managers. One is shorter and plump, the other is taller. Naturally it was the taller manager that came out lording over this 90 pound woman.I cannot abide this behavior from anyone, and will absolutely NOT give a dime to any company that condones such behavior.
This place is the old Asian King buffet but it's remodeled and owned by a different owner who also owns Panda China Buffet on Miracle Strip pkwy. The food are great, they have hibachi and sushi bar as well. Price isn't bad at all. It's 7.99 for adults from Monday through Saturday lunch time, and 10.99 for dinner. On Sundays, it's 9.99 all day dinner buffet which includes more seafood and crab legs! Since they remodeled the old, dirty interior, it is now clean and beautiful :) They also have a big private party room for meetings and parties so you can eat and have some good time with your co-workers, friends, or families in private. This place is certainly the best asian buffet of all in Fort Walton Beach/Destin area!!!
If you like Chinese buffet restaurants, then you'll like Panda. Their food is good, the variety is good, and they offer both sushi AND the Mongolian grill. I always find the service to be good, as well.
