Wow, getting much better!.
I didn't know about their lunch and dinner specials until I stopped in for dinner last night, and I must say that many things about this place have improved a lot since the last time I was here. I highly, highly recommend the Leshan Chicken and/or the Spicy Curry Beef. My friend and I each got an order and they were very tasty. The chicken reminded me of something that's spicy and diced, so don't be afraid to ask about it! My friend also loved the Curry Beef, saying it was something he had been looking for since he visited China. Both the portions came with our choice of rice, soup, spring roll, and crab rangoon. I was told both are relatively new dishes but the portions on the dinner and lunch specials will be more than enough for 95% of people.
The service and speed also improved considerably, I think they have some new staff now. I sympathize with the past reviewers because I experienced similar timing when I came a few months back. However, I think we got our entire meal taken care of with other tables around in almost half the time. I didn't come here too often in the past because I thought the prices were a little high, but with the 4.95 lunch and 6.95 dinner specials I will definitely be returning soon. I'm very happy with what I've had and I would encourage everyone in West County to give this place another chance!
To be honest the biggest drawback for this place is that it's damn hard to find the first time you go, but once you try the food you will not forget where it is!
We ordered Hot and Sour soup which was pretty good, egg rolls which were okay once we finally got them, and two entrees. One of them, Chili Seafood plate, which was one of their specialties was by far the worst Chinese dish I have ever had, it was fried and was way too salty and was not edible. The waiter and the manager and any other employee that would listen were well aware of our dissatisfaction and nothing was done. We also ordered Kung Pao chicken, it was fine at best, the chicken was dry and didn't have much flavor.
The service was terrible too, instead of egg rolls they wanted us to have crab rangoon which neither my wife nor I were not at all interested in. I am disappointed becuase we were really looking forward to a good Chinese dinner, and this was definitely not it. This place is terrible and I would not recommend anyone wasting their time or money at the Panda Palace.
