Panda Garden is truly one of the best Chinese Restaurants in the world! I wanted to go to have decent Asian noodles for my birthday today and stumbled across Panda Garden in the middle of Memphis Tennessee. What a pleasant surprise!I am originally from Hawaii and am part Hawaiian and Asian. I have lived across the Pacific Rim. Had Panda Garden been in Hawaii, there would be a long line of hungry customers around the block waiting to eat here. As it is now, Panda Garden is a best kept secret in the middle of Memphis with few customers.The food at this quiet, little Chinese restaurant in the middle of Memphis Tennessee is such a pleasant surprise. The vegetables are crisp and fresh. The rolls and dumplings are freshly made with the freshest ingredients. Unlike typical Chinese American restaurants, the food is not overly greasy, salty, burnt or smothered in bottled processed sauces. The cuisine tastes more healthy and homemade like my Chinese grandmother Bo Lin made back in Hawaii.The prices here are very affordable while the decor is crisp, clean and professional. Clean, crisp linen napkins and quality service ware is used rather than typical cheap plastic plates found at most Chinese fast food restaurants and buffets. The staff is genuinely friendly and service is fast and professional.Thus, if you are looking for healthy, tasty, fresh, authentic Chinese food, Panda Garden is definitely one of best places in the world--except for my grandmother Bo Lin's kitchen!

$45.45 of disappointment... hot wings & rib-eye and asparagus.I WAS a frequent patron of this restaurant. I LOVED their hot wings and rib-eye asparagus. I live in Bartlett and drive over 10 miles and pass 20+ Chinese restaurants to eat there! It's the kind of food that you wake up in the middle of the night dreaming about.Well today their customer service cured me of my cravings. I happened to be on the south side of town and stopped in to take a double order of my favorite dishes to go because I had out of town guests who wanted to try what I've been raving about. When I got home & sampled my rib-eye, I found that the secret sauce was very light to non-existent. I called my C-Fu's to alert them to the problem and was told to "freeze" the food, bring it in and they would make me another on the house, next time I'm there. The rib-eye is expensive ($15) and usually worth it, but since I had guests coming, little time to alter the menu, and $45 less money, I had to serve what I had. When I told the manager this, the only reply I got was "Well I'll let them know." From this day forward, I will not spend another dime in this restaurant! I feel cheated and worse yet embarrassed. I will no longer suggest this restaurant to my family and friends. A good product is nothing without great service.
Simply put......Epiphany Salon & Gallery is awesome! The ambiance is amazing. Everyone is so friendly and bubbly and to watch them work is wonderful. Haircutting, highlights, silk pressing, relaxers, etc. You name it, they do it and the shop is so diverse. Black, white, green or yellow....doesn't matter what color you are, if you have hair, they'll do it! :-) My personal experience with hair stylist Angie was amazing! This was my first visit to the salon and even though she graciously took me at the last minute on Valentine's' Day weekend she got me in and out. She explained everything that she was doing to my hair, she explained areas that needed improvement and she explained to me, her method of doing a silk press before and during the process. I will definitely be a regular moving forward and if you are having second thoughts about going to Epiphany Hair & Gallery or going somewhere else-choose Epiphany! My hair is LAID and yours can be too! BOOK ANGIE!
