Second time I have tried Panda Buffet and second time disappointed. Most dishes were barely warm, the chicken dishes were certainly not tender. The Mee noodles were tasty but not too warm. both shrimp dishes I tried, honey shrimp and another were badly prepared and almost powdery in texture. The Hot and sour soup was hot in temperature and spicy enough but lacked much in the way of tofu and vegetables. Service was good and friendly without being intrusive. The first time I went there I had a similar experience and thought it must have been an off day but now after going there for another time has proven to be the norm rather than the exception.
"one of Tucson’s most popular places to be seen"
I rather eat great Chinese food than be seen - and all you can do here is be seen and buy over-priced, mediocre, not really Chinese food. Save you image and go to Vancouver, San Fran, Hong Kong, etc and learn about real Chinese food. You don't need "a chic, eclectic ambience" - you need to know what real food tastes like - or be seen at MacDonald's.
