Panda Garden
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!

C Fu Chinese Restaurant & Grill
$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.

Cook-Out
For months I watched them build this "cook out" and I've always wondered about it. But I saw a great review on this place stating the food was excellent and the price was great. So while driving past it one day, I noticed the customer's line was actually in the right lane of the street traffic. Now, I thought any place that could attract a crowd, like that was worth joining the excitement. I couldn't wait to place my order and test the food. I can't assure you that everything is worth a fuss. But when I bit into my burger, I was hooked for life!!! This burger, my daughter told me was so unique because it's freshly prepared and slapped on a grill to get a taste that will literally send you to heaven...LoL! I wasn't so enthused with the fries/onion rings but the burger was reasonably priced and delicious. It's better than mom's home-made burgers. Yes, I'm in LoVe. I now see why people are forming a long line, it's really hard to find delicious fast food these days anymore worth the stop. People can eat/dine inside also but I love food on the go. I predict they will have to re-locate very soon due to their success.

Sheltons Catering and Take Out
This is wonderful catering company that my company GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) will continue to use. The customer service is the best ever found in the Memphis area and they all treat their customers as if they were the only customers they had especially Shelia, the owner. The food is delicious and no matter what it is that is being served, I always seemed to be asked where the food came from. Whether it be the lasagna, bbq or baked chicken or wraps, the taste of the food along with the sides are impecable and Rodney does a fantastic job. Our company will continue to use this service since it is so convenient to have them arrange everything and not have to worry about the menu or setting anything up. If I ever had a private engagement to cater, I would definitely call on them as well.

MidTown Eatery
Midtown Eatery is a humble bistro nestled on the ground floor of the Memphis Professional Building at 1211 Union Avenue. The lovely bistro odors wafting from the entrance of the large professional healthcare facility are so intoxicating that it makes me forget that I am there to visit my doctor.Mo, the owner of Midtown Eatery, is genuinely courteous and cheerful. Mo goes out of his way to make you feel like family.The freshly made Gyro with fries are amazing together that you will want to come and visit Mo's Midtown Eatery any time you are in the area, not only when you have a doctor's appointment at the healthcare facility.Allow the juices from the succulent Gyro to drip all over the fries. Who needs ketchup? The naked, hot, crisp, crinkle cut fries taste superb with Gyro drippings!

The Farmer
I eat at this restaurant all the time and I haave never had anything that was not amazing! All their dishes are made with local farm produce and grass fed beef. Their Braized Greens are amazing, the best I have ever had! The deviled eggs that come with some of the dishes are wonderful. The Burger is grass fed beef and has the most wonderful flavor and now I dont want a burger frome anywhere else! I have also had the cat fish, the pot roast, the pork, and the vege plate just to name a few things and all were perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. I wish more restaurants would go to grass fed beef and locally grown produce.

Bella Cafe
I have just recently found this wonderful cafe located in the Pink Palace Museum of Memphis. The food was absolutely GREAT and the price was very reasonable. I have just recommended this cafe to a friend who is getting married and she feel in love with the owners and how friendly they are. This friend has booked her wedding with them and has saved on her budget so she can apply it elsewhere. The staff is all family and they are very friendly, helpful and gracious. The food is some of the best I have eaten in this area and very clean. Can't wait to go back, and you can go in to eat without paying for the Museum.

Phat Pat's Southern Quisine
I was at Michael Adrian Davis's 50th Birthday Celebration and this establishment catered and the food and the presentation of the food was Excellence!!!!!! From the individual sweet potato pies with whipped cream and chess pie to the "Beautiful Fruit Arrangement." And the food was Fantastic! You could taste the flavor in each bite. I will be using them for my next event. And the Catering Staff working along side Phat Pat and his wife were very professional and friendly. I give them 5 Stars!!!!!! God Bless them and everything they put their hands too.

Sing Lay Chinese Restaurant
I read several reviews about how great the food was here so I decided to try it with my husband. I wanted to try something I was familiar with so I chose Moo Goo Gai Pan. This was the worst I have ever tasted. It was very "blauh" to say the least! How do you mess up fried rice? My husband had the General chicken. It was overcooked and taste like it had been reheated. I NEVER right reviews but this place was too bad to have someone else waste money there. The prices are outrageous for the quality of food they are serving.

Phat Pat's Southern Quisine
Even though the food was good and the wait staff friendly, the portions were almost too much however,the food was not hot when it arrived. For a "southern" restaurant, the seasoning could have been so much better. I don't think it was seasoned at all. We had to ask twice for some butter. The beer selection was second to none. The waitress never ask if we would like another tea or a beer - which probably was a good thing as a bottle of beer there is $4.50. Probably won't return.

Just a moment...
