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.
First night in Steamboat, ever, gave this pace a chance since we wanted to relax on our first night here....ordered Thai coconut chicken, INEDIBLE! Bland and had NO coconut flavor. The egg flower soup, just nasty, and the sesame chicken-tasted like it was bathed in fish sauce.... All in all, it's now sitting in the trash, uneaten... Waste of $25 dollars... I just hope after now reading the last review, we don't get sick! The fiancé would like me to add it was "craptacular"-his new word for "sh&t".....Just don't eat here....
