'Fancy Panda' was a huge hit at our wedding and we would definitely recommend Adam and his team for your wedding day!

Highlights:

-We worked with Adam and his team for several months and he was always easy to communicate with and was accommodating in meeting our expectations and budget constraints. He is super friendly and able to work with both English and Mandarin speaking clients (and parents =D)!

-The quality and taste of our menu were outstanding! My only regret is that I never got to eat more during the wedding (typical =p) even though Adam's team was so good that they supplied our Sweetheart table with more than enough food. Don't expect them to serve some form of upgraded Panda Express food; this is some legit Chinese food! I was even tempted to ask Adam if they could serve some Orange Chicken as appetizers LOL.

-We received outstanding service for our 120 guest wedding including: setup and tear down at our venue, dietary accommodations, and coordination with our wedding planner.

-Adam helped coordinate a boba station at our wedding that had guests running for the dessert table! The boba was a HUGE hit and well reviewed by our guests. GET THAT PANDA BOBA!!!


I would highly recommend Panda Catering and wouldn't hesitate to do business with them again!

I'm posting the same review that I wrote for them on Yelp. I created a Wedding Wire account just to write a review for them. Here, it seems like many people had Nicole as their catering manager. I, like many other Yelpers, had Adam and Annie.

I don't want to repeat everything that's already been said but I want to stress the fact that Adam and his team are more than just your average catering team. They actually enjoy and take pride in what they do. Our guests definitely notice their high standards for food and service. We received SO many compliments on food. Favorites included the honey walnut shrimp, sauteed scallops, and ESPECIALLY the chilean sea bass.

On top of that, Adam, Annie, and their team went above and beyond as a caterer. Not only did they cook and serve food, they helped us out in SO many ways. I almost don't even want to mention how they helped us because I feel like what they offered us had absolutely nothing to do with catering and was completely out of their scope of work. Every time I mentioned a detail about my wedding, they were so quick to offer their help even if it wasn't food or drink related. For example, we asked if they could use our "logo" at the top of the menu. What we didn't expect was that their design team completely customized our menu to fit the look and feel of our wedding.

Like other reviewers, I whole-heartedly agree that there are not enough words to emphasize the amazing service provided by Adam, Annie, and the rest of the Panda Inn team. Their catering business is exploding and it's very obvious why.

Side note: When we told people our wedding would be catered by Panda Inn, the jokes flooded in about having Panda Express orange chicken as our main dish. Buy boy did people take their jokes back when they actually tried the food. 382 thumbs up from the 191 people at my wedding!

Let me set the stage:
Wedding was on Sunday 11/20/2016 for 125 guests at the Castle Green in Pasadena, CA
We had a 10 course Chinese banquet style menu
There were 12 tables of 10 and 12 guests accordingly

Like many of the other review left for Adam Yu at Panda Catering, words can not even begin to express the gratitude and satisfaction for the efforts of their team. The planning, timing and execution of the dinner reception was flawless. Adam and his team were very involved and attentive from the beginning. They made sure I felt comfortable and supported throughout the entire process. They were able to work with me on not only the food/menu selection but they even tray passed appetizers that I chose from Porto's bakery (without gripe or hassle). Then on the day of, Adam and his team worked tirelessly to ensure that timing, presentation and quality of the food and SERVICE were second to none. Not to mention Katrina and Annie from his team who are the gears in the background that make Adam look as great as he does. Without those two ensuring that things were perfect, this day could also not have happened. At the end of the night, they made sure to pack the food (especially the food that my husband and I did not eat since we were too busy mingling with the guests) and we got to eat it in our hotel room at 2 am when everyone left. I can not say this enough: Brides, if you are considering Panda Catering for your wedding, this comes with my highest recommendation. I say this whole heartedly when I tell you to pick Adam and his team, because the do not disappoint, in fact they go the extra mile to ENSURE that your day is perfect. Thank you Adam, Katrina and Annie for feeding and taking great care of us and our guests on what was the perfect and best day of our life.

Words cannot express how grateful we are for everything Mila, Annie, Kevin and the rest of the Panda team have done for our wedding. A 300 guest count wedding in an all outdoor garden is no easy task and they handled it with precision and grace. From Panda we had to rent all the serveware, servers, food, appetizers, and even an outdoor kitchen!! No easy task but they did not bat an eye.

Guests cannot stop raving and cannot not believe Panda was able to prepare food like that in an outdoor kitchen they prepared on site. Everything tasted amazing.

Everyone also said they couldn't believe the appetizers were so "fancy" with the presentation style. The passed appetizers were always in abundance and our guests were stuffed. My hubby and I loved the bacon wrapped scallops and the crowd favorite seemed to be the steamed buns!

Our amazing coordinator could not stop saying that Panda was such an amazing vendor despite never having worked with them before. Panda brought an entire village of staff to our wedding. Every person from Panda Had outstanding service, professionalism and a constant welcoming smile. I saw the entire team running around to ensure everything went smoothly and handled everything with such grace.

They did not miss a beat with all the crazy details I wanted. I am so impressed by how they remembered every single detail from my thousands of emails. I know a lot of hard work had to go on behind the scenes in order to ensure everything was in place.

I could go on and on about how Panda and our coordinator were the instrumental reasons our wedding was such a success and we could never thank them enough. At Asian weddings, the food is the most criticized items and guests could not stop talking about how great it was. For the bride and groom, the collaboration with the vendor comes long before the wedding day and it was an absolute joy with Panda every step of the way.

Panda’s great catering service really made our wedding a wonderful experience! My husband and I feel so lucky to find and choose Panda catering as my wedding catering for their delicious and authentic Chinese food, as well as the excellent and professional service. All of our guests love the food, said it’s the best wedding Chinese food they’ve ever had (some of the guests are professional chefs).

My wedding venue (a golf clubhouse) doesn’t provide Chinese food, so I need to find catering service in LA/OC area. I looked through all the wedding sites and forums and googled, there are 6 Chinese catering I found and I did food tasting on all of them. Among them, Panda’s food is the most fresh and authenticate one. I grow up in China, so not a big fan of American style Chinese food, Panda’s food is authentic cantonese style, which I love.

Then I started to work with Adam, as the catering manager. He is very professional, detail oriented and very on top of things. It’s really a pleasure to work with him. My venue also highly praised Adam as the best outside catering people they’ve ever work with.

On the wedding day, the food quality is excellent!!! Here are some dishes praised by almost all our guests: steamed whole fish (very well cooked), lobster with ginger and scallions (it’s fresh, delicious and big amount), shrimp stuffed crab claws (crispy outside and tender inside), filet mignon (really good). The food plating is neat and decent, which gave guest a good first impression when food first served. The service is excellent and they works with the venue staff. (The venue staff is also very professional). They also provide special combo meal for vegetarian guest and my wedding vendors.

I highly recommend Adam Yu and Panda catering.

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,

We love Panda Catering! Nicole is super easy to work with and she goes above and beyond to make sure your catering needs are met. The food is amazing and they made our buffet stations look beautiful! The servers and bartenders were awesome, some of our drink-happy guests said that the bartenders for our event were super fun! Definitely would recommend them for any catering needs!

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!)
