“From our family to yours.”
A lot of people may mistake Panda Express as Food Panda, because of the common word panda. But heads up, they’re two different things. 😉
Panda Express is a fast food restaurant chain founded 1983 in California, US. They serve American Chinese cuisine with mouthwatering flavors that will surely satisfy and tickle your taste buds.
The very first Philippine Panda Express branch opened last 12th of December 2019, located at the upper ground floor of SM Megamall, Building A, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong, Metro Manila. A LOT of people welcomed its opening, causing long queues and hype over the internet.
Panda Express offers a variety of dishes, varying from chicken, beef, pork, and seafood. (With veggies too!)
Curious on how they serve their food, and of course, dying to know how the food tastes, we went all the way to SM Megamall to try Panda Express! Even a month after their opening, there was still a long line waiting for customers outside the restaurant. Staffs will be there to assist you, so fret not!
Even if there was a line, the queueing was smooth; all thanks to the accommodating and approachable staffs of Panda Express. Kudos!
We originally planned to eat at the restaurant to experience the ambiance, but since we were in a hurry, we decided to have our orders wrapped, to go. The containers were sturdy, I was so sure our food wouldn’t spill. They even doubled the paper bags to make sure it didn’t break. (We ordered a whole lot!)

For the quality, we give Panda Express an 8/10. The dishes were tasty but there’s a sense of familiarity to them. They tasted common and similar to those of Chinese restaurants found here in PH. Nothing extraordinary, but tasty. 😊
For the quantity, we give Panda Express a 10/10. Because for its price, you get a whole lot of what you ordered. We actually kept some leftovers and ate them the following day.
All in all, Panda Express is nice, especially if you’re an enthusiast of Chinese cuisine like me. I like how sweet and salty the dishes are. 😊
It is revealed in interviews and widely known through the internet that Kpop boy group BTS loves to eat Panda Express. Intrigued? I guess yes. 😉
