    So happy you guys are open again. Great ideas with the serving of food to prevent the spread of Covid. Amazing friendly service as always and delicious food. (Teppanyaki steak & sushi was incredible)

    The service was really bad, they didn't serve all the dishes we asked for and we had to wait 1 hour between each service of food. Appalling, never coming again.

    Disappointed. Service was disjointed, some courses good others poor. I think they misplaced our mains as we we waiting for ages. Food was mixed; starter very good, mains poor. Chicken Marsala had an unusual taste to me. My favorite course was Chicken in Black bean sauce that was very tasty.

    Panda Mami York. It was utterly disgusting. I took my family for my daughter's 19th Birthday on a Friday afternoon. The restaurant was empty which I found a little strange with it being a Friday. The waiter was very nice on arrival. And also the person bringing the food. Unfortunately the food was gross. We ordered a meat platter for starters. When it came it consisted of cocktail sausages, chicken nuggets, chips, two chicken wings and prawn toast all deep fried and dripping with oil. It reminded me of party food that you would give to kids at a toddler party bought frozen in bags and shoved in the deep fat fryer. Most of it was left on the dishes and not eaten. I also asked for a pizza as a starter for a smaller child. It was brought out 20mins after everyone else’s starter was on the table. When it came it smelt like a wet dog! The youngster did not want to eat it. I tasted it as it smelt awful and it tasted exactly how it smelt. So we removed it from the table and told the waiter. Then whilst contemplating whether to order a main a member of staff brought noodles and rice to the table? We did not order this? I assumed it was standard to go with a main when ordered? We tasted the noodles and they where vile. They tasted like plastic? I was so shocked, and the fried rice was boiled rice with some egg and peas put in and tasted microwaved. At this point we decided not to order a main as all 6 of us had been put off eating anything else from this restaurant. I was so annoyed as we’d driven all the way from Leeds and couldn’t even [stomach] anything more. Even the drinks were watery. Also a waiter was touching my young son's face in the middle of a pandemic which I was furious about and found this incredibly odd behaviour? I told Management that the whole experience was terrible and explained we’d driven from Leeds and it was for a Birthday. Her response was ‘I eat here every day, no one complains’! They charged us £49.

    Food was good but service not so great. Whilst I appreciate it's very difficult to do table service when you’re used to a buffet, however, as there where very few customers the service could have been a lot better. On the plus side the food was cooked fresh for each order.

    The food was cold, service was rubbish. We wait an hour for food and when it comes it wasn't what we ordered.

    The food was awful and the service was very poor. Constantly getting things wrong and always having to call them back to either change the food to what I asked for or to remind them that we gave them an order paper 10 minutes ago and thev forgot to bring it out. So they took the order sheet a second time and still forgot to bring out half of it. Then i ordered spicy chicken and got some sort of duck instead! Then we ordered 2 x deserts selection and they only brought 1 out, my partner had finished eating and was just waiting for me to finish dessert which they forgot to bring out. I asked them, are they doing this to us on purpose? I will never be going again, what a waste of money. It was the worst experience during our York holiday.

    From start to finish it was a total disaster. We pre-booked a table and ordered drinks which was a bottle of wine and 2 glasses and a lemonade as I like to add it to my wine. They brought soda water which I added to my wine and thought it didn't taste right but let it go. They brought the meals to the table after filling in the order but couldn't mix starters? Main meals were cold and portion sizes very small (in a tea plate), no dessert as we were complaining about meal. Very disappointing.
