The Panda is the absolute WORST restaurant in Steamboat Springs. I am a local and I have given this restaurant several chances to improve thinking that they had a off day. Every time I order takeout, there is always some issue with the food. I recently ordered Sesame Chicken and requested that it be made mild. Upon my return home and opening the container, it was full of red peppers. The chicken itself was not edible. This was also true for the hot and sour soup which tasted like soap. I am not surprised that the order for the Sesame Chicken was incorrect because the lady that takes the order (I hear she is the owners girlfriend) obviously speaks and understands very little English. On another visit, I had a takeout order for almost $75. I asked for a little white rice to put in soup and some hard noodles and I was charged $2.25 for the rice (less than a cup) and $1.25 for the smallest bag of hard noodles I have ever seen. In the past takeouts, I returned the food but this time, I just threw it away because there is obviously no hope for this place.

I have also tried the all you can eat buffet. It should be called all you can stand buffet as after eating it, I got a severe case of diarrhea which apparently is not unusual for people who eat this buffet.

It is not surprising since the bathrooms are filthy and I observed an employee leaving the bathroom without washing his hands (an obvious health code violation). Most of the time the dinning room is also filthy as are the tables even when they are supposed to be ready for patrons.

The bottom line is whether you are a local or a visitor, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN away from this horrible restaurant. It is the worst restaurant in town and there are other choices that are much better for your health and appetite.

Wife is on working vacation so we needed to order delivery and she wanted chinese, so we looked to Panda Garden. Ordering by phone is taxing at best as english is obviously not their 1st language, but that's to be expected. After giving a simple order three time to two different people (they don't seem to understand spice levels) and my credit card number twice to two different people, I thought we were good to go.

Order arrived quickly, which was nice. The driver though would not let me have a copy of the order ticket, even though he had two with him. I could only have a copy of the credit card receipt. This should have been my next clue that this wasn't going to end right. The amount was correct for what i ordered, but instead of one expensive order of noodles and three meats, I got a cheap order of veggies and tofu. I decide to call to complain but was told they would only credit my charge for the price of the tofu dish and not the more expensive meat and noodle dish, which it seemed odd he knew exactly what dish I had received and how much it cost without me tellig him what I had received. Since I didn't have a copy of the order, I didn't feel like I had much argument to work with, only the total of what i ordered based on the online (2011) menu prices and he obvioulsy wasn't going to care enough about making things right for me. (Bait and Switch??) He only said they would get it right next time (as if). The other dish ordered - Sesame Chicken - was different than what you might expect but OK (just).

So, unfortuantely you don't have much to choose from for Chinese food in Steamboat, but if you do order from Panda Garden, demand a copy of your order and check your order before paying.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Steamboat!! They have amazing half price appetizers until 6pm- the crab rangoon are my absolute favorite, and the sushi is great too.
