Panda East is a chinese restaurant located in the middle of amherst center. i personally don't like the wait staff at all, but the food is decent. i mean, we're in western mass. do you really expect good chinese food? jk. i guess i'd say that panda east is probably the best chinese food in the area though, compared to the other restaurants. they have lunch specials which come with soup and appetizers which is a great deal because the entree portion is a nice big size. i usualyl get the tofu or chicken with vegetables in ginger and scallion with garlic sauce. it's tasty. however, i wouldn't come here for dinner because the dishes can be pricey, especially for their quality of food.
