Food that never came.

Nice food if it gets to you. Went there for NYE this year and ended up walking out after being there from 7.15pm until about 10.15pm without even having our main meal as the service was so slow and we didn't want to spend the rest of the year there when we had a party to go to. Wouldn't go there again because quite frankly I don't like having to wait around for hours on end for my food. What made it worse was that loads of people were collecting masses of takeaway while we were left waiting - might as well have ordered a takeaway and ate it in the store. It was a similar experience on Mother's Day in 2011.

    Want a mega expensive and mediocrestarter?

       

    Went to this restaurant last weekend and was absolutely flabergasted when I saw the prices for their starters £7 for a portion of spare ribs!! come on, thats extortionate, even by todays standards!

    Funny thing was that some of the main courses were cheaper than the starter selection !!!!

    Verdict:- Scandalous price for very average quality and mediocre food, forget it, find a different venue for your well earned, weekend night out!

    Sad about the experience of the previous writer . No matter what the customer's needs, it is the staff's first priority to try and satisfy those needs. I would never go back. There is another, similar cafe, in West Exe. Another thing, as climate is heating up, lets have water on every table . Free.

    A Golden experience

       

    The Golden Panda in Tiverton is without a doubt one of the best Chinese restaurants in Tiverton. The service is quick and the staff are very friendly, with a diverse menu that caters for both vegetarian and meat lovers, you simply cant go wrong!

    Very good buffet

       

    The food here seemed to be really nicely prepared, especially for the buffet service ordinarily I find that Chinese buffets can be cheap and easy, left out to get cold and cooked with cheap ingredients in order to make money back. Not so here, everything was wonderful, and the service was very attentive and cheerful. Would definitely recommend it.

    I went here for the Buffet on Sunday, I have a 1 Year..

       

    I went here for the Buffet on Sunday, I have a 1 Year Old son, and so called them prior to our visit and asked if they had high chairs, they replied 'yes'. We arrived at the restaurant and there were no highchairs, and so my son had to balance on a normal chair, with me eventually putting him back into his pushchair. The staff were not friendly and did not seem to appreciate the presence of a child in their restaurant, as every time he made a noise the displeasure in their faces was obvious. Also, I realise that they make their money on drinks when you go there for a buffet meal, but I just wanted to shout "STOP ASKING ME IF I WANT A NEW DRINK EVERY 5 MINUTES!" The food was good, but when you feel uncomfortable with a child and also feel hassled to buy drinks, it's not worth the £12 for the meal. Sorry.
