It was about 9 pm on a Friday night and places were already closing...keep this in mind...these folks don't eat late like they do in Italy and France!
The Panda Inn was 2 blocks away from where we were staying, so 3 of us made a dash for some food.
We were in for a bigger treat than listening to the owners sweet Chinese daughter speak with a Scottish Brogue!
I had the most outstanding Almond Chicken with Fried Rice ($6.50) and had so much fun with the chopsticks. Forks were available for the less patient.
We all enjoyed our meals so much, that we talked the other 4 into joining us there again on another evening. this time I had the Prawns with Cashew Nuts...very good for $6. Everyone raved about their dishes as well. I didn't try the curry dishes, but they were priced from $4.50-$5 and there were vegetarian choices on the menu as well.
This is a fairly small place with about 8-10 tables. The first night we were the only ones eating, but the second time we ate at about 5 pm and the place was packed full. It is best to call ahead during regular dinner hours and always give some warning if you have a group so this family can be prepared.
