Nicole (the catering manager) and the team at Panda Catering were great! I was referred to them by my wedding coordinator, and I'm glad she did. Nicole was helpful from the first time we contacted her and we were able to quickly set up a food tasting, to help us decide if we wanted to hire them for the hors d'oeuvres during our wedding cocktail hour. All the food we tasted was great, so we decided to hire them. When our wedding rolled around, they stayed in contact with our wedding coordinator to make sure they knew when they were expected to arrive, as well as where they would be setting up. This made things much easier on me, since it was one less thing I had to worry about. On the day of the wedding, I received feedback from numerous guests that they really enjoyed all the hors d'oeuvres and the servers were great. I'd recommend them to anyone else looking for delicious food for any event they're planning!

We found Panda Catering at a wedding expo. The same week one of the managers, Nicole had reached us through email and set up a taste session. We were blown away by their food. There were so many good and different options to choose from, we knew we would not be disappointed. The day of the wedding the presentation, the food, and the service was everything we could have imagined and more! Panda Catering easily catered our 250 guest wedding and we did not worry about one thing the entire wedding. Nicole was there for us from the beginning to the end. We would highly recommend their catering services to anyone. Thank you Panda, you are now our family restaurant,

Wow how can explain this vendor in normal English! The level of professionalism and organization was astounding. They worked so well with my venue that I barely had to lift a finger. The food is AMAZING!!! Really though it was so good we had a wonderful sushi bar, chicken and beef teriyaki with all the works, appetizers, and drinks (non-alcoholic and alcoholic). This vendor even cut the cake! WOW all I can say is I would recommend them in a heart beat.

I had Panda cater my recent outdoor wedding. Planning a wedding can be (IS) such an ordeal and with the amount of DIY I had planned in the final weeks- I was a complete mess. The only constant thing I had total confidence in was Nicole (the catering manager) and the Panda team.

From the initial meeting, I knew we were in great hands. Nicole was attentive and the food blew us away. It's not the flowers or your dress or the photo booth people remember - it's the FOOD. Coupled with the most amazing catering team and I don't know why you're not contacting Panda NOW.

Now our venue was outdoors with no access to a kitchen, and I've watched enough Top Chef to know this can't be good. BUT! With Panda, it was EASY BREEZY FANTASTIC. They swooped in, erected a kitchen and the food was top restaurant quality.

Nicole was beyond amazing to work with. She's super responsive, raised questions and voiced concerns that never would have crossed my mind. She requested anything I neglected to send it her way. Many times I even felt she was more on top of my wedding than me! She's really great at working with you on your menu to make it truly unique and within your budget. They really are there for you and aims to please their clients.

I can't rave enough about Panda. I owe them so much for executing our most memorable night. Even our coordinator loved them said she would be recommending them to her clients!

The best advice in wedding planning I got was "Get great vendors". With Panda, you really are getting THE GREATEST.

( I almost wish I could get married again in order to work with Nicole and have Panda cater once more!)

I would say Panda's catering services were above & beyond my expectations. I just had my wedding a month ago & my husband wanted a very traditional chinese banquet experience for our guests. Mila Chan, our catering manager & her team made sure that the highest quality of food was served.

They are super accomodating, responsive & flexible, making the whole planning process easy for me. I was really touched by their kind gesture to pack the whole 10 course meal for me on the side, knowing that I would not have time to eat that night but still get to enjoy the food later:)

The wait staff services was impeccable! They are all so pleasant & professional.Truly service from the heart.Highly recommended!

We used Panda Catering for all of our food and bar service at our Wedding on September 8, 2013.

We first met with Luther and Nicole who were very easy to work with and familiar with dealing with catering both very traditional Chinese style banquets and more modern Westernized style receptions. We were looking for a caterer who could present traditional Chinese food using modern plating, and was familiar with catering at off-site venues (our venue did not allow cooking in their kitchen, only reheating). Panda was especially qualified because they brought all their equipment and cooked everything on site with their own woks, grills, etc. This made the food fresh and much more appetizing vs. other caterers we met with who told us they cook their food at their own kitchen first, and reheat on site.

Food
Having really good food was very important to us, since a lot of our guests are really big foodies. Having to please the older relatives and the younger crowd, we were given a lot of choices to select from for our dishes. During the tasting, they asked our opinion of each dish we tasted and were open to improving or modifying any dishes to our liking. They even presented us with additional options for our menu, which we ended up picking. We went with eight courses and each dish was delicious! Our guests could not stop raving about the food, specifically about the Chilean Sea Bass and still talk about it every time we see them!

Overall
We would definitely recommend using Nicole and her team to cater your event! They were very professional and responsive during the whole process from beginning to even post Wedding day. The wait staff was beyond professional and Nicole even brought out our signature drinks to us at our table - (had she not, we probably would not even had a chance to taste it!). Many thanks go out to the Panda Catering team for all their hard work - they went above and beyond our expectations!

I recently got married and was very very pleased with Panda's catering services. They definitely delivered all my expectations and went beyond.
I know I wanted authentic Chinese banquet style dinner at my wedding but did not want it held at a Chinese restaurant. I wanted a nice venue that can cater to my needs. Panda's catering director, Nicole, was extremely professional and so easy to work with. It made my planning so simple and smooth. They are a one stop shop. They provided the food, bartenders, servers, dessert, rentals, set up and clean up.
They can practically make anything you want. All 9 courses plus my appetizers tasted just like my food tasting session. My friends and family raved about the menu and how good it tasted. Everything served was full of flavor and piping hot, even after transporting the food up 32 floors.
They made sure my husband and I ate our dinner so we were served all 9 courses in individual portions. They even helped us pack our left overs so we can eat at our hotel room afterwards. We were treated with exceptional service and was so glad we had food at the end of the night, because you definitely need it after such a long and eventful day.
Overall, we were so happy we chose Panda as our caterer. Catering is one of the most expensive part of a party, so it is wise to choose one that can deliver the food you expect.
Thank you to Nicole and your team for everything.

Panda Catering was amazing and I highly recommend them for weddings and all other catering events.

Nicole was our catering manager and she was so easy to work with. Starting from the beginning, she listened to our needs and put together a great tasting that everyone loved. She and her team were always so accommodating and knew what we needed before we even asked for it.

Throughout the planning process, Nicole was responsive, flexible and offered lots of great suggestions which we used. She made what can be a stressful process super easy.

On the day of the event, they arrived early and the food was so delicious. They even brought food to the bridal party. Our guest kept complimenting how great the food was.

Wow, we were blown away. Highly recommended!!

I recently got married on October 13th, 2012 at an outdoor venue in Palm Springs. I was really happy with our vendors but Panda Catering was by far the SINGLE BEST decision my husband and I made for our wedding. From the first contact, Nicole and Luther were unbelievably professional and service-oriented. More importantly, Nicole and her team also CARED about delivering exactly what we wanted. They created new dishes for us, tailored existing dishes for us, and agreed to add another vegetable dish the week of the wedding!
When we requested a dim sum only cocktail hour, they brainstormed and came up with a delicious tasting menu of items. In the end, we served egg rolls, BBQ pork buns, fried dumplings, tea smoked duck in buns, and soup dumplings. Panda even got us dim sum carts to serve the food in!
For dinner, we made a special request to serve a dish similar to the stir-fried specialty lobster at Newport Seafood in San Gabriel, one of our favorite restaurants. They hit it out of the park! In addition, we served the steamed chilean sea bass, beef short ribs, noodles, greens and a chicken soup which they served in little crock pots. The food was presented well, served hot, plentiful and tasted great. We got soo many comments about how this was the best wedding food any of our guests had ever had, we were so pumped!!!
The Panda Express connection was scary for us initially, but do not fear, this is GREAT FOOD and they are AWESOME. They handled multiple dietary requests (e.g., kosher, vegan, allergies) with ease and they served food to our vendors for free. Panda also threw in fortune cookies dipped in white chocolate. And, they made individual menus for each guest FOR FREE!!
The best part is that Panda’s price is about half the cost of the other caterers we talked to! Definitely the best bang for our buck. Thank you, Panda!!! You made our wedding the most incredible experience! I would HIGHLY recommend Panda to anyone.
