Panda Pavilion Restaurant Review

: Panda Pavilion features authentic Chinese cuisine from the Cantonese, Szechuan and Hunan provinces, as well as a Japanese menu. The casual but elegant setting includes a tank of tropical fish and subtle Chinese decorative accents. Begin with the light and savory shredded mixed vegetable moo shu served with two crêpes. Sesame spare ribs are a good selection for those looking for a heartier beginning. Then try the Peking steak kew, tender beef filet mignon sautéed in a flavorful brown sauce. Those seeking fiery tastes should opt for the Szechuan chicken with five-alarm red chili peppers. Seafood lovers will enjoy the sautéed shrimp with snow peas. Inventive sushi rolls bring even more variety to the already diverse menu.
