Rating: ★★☆☆☆ 

Located on busy Anaheim Street in a strip mall in Long Beach, New Panda Restaurant serves up Chinese fast food to the masses. There were barely anyone inside prior to the lunch rush, so I found myself able to select from the many options. Today, I decided to order the two-item combo with fried rice, broccoli beef, and spicy orange chicken. The combo also came with the choice of an egg roll or soda, so I opted for the soda. The sheer quantity of food received for a very reasonable price was a great value. The broccoli was fresh, but the beef was fairly bland and tough. The spicy orange chicken had a mild spice and lots of savory flavors, but the breading was quite thick and hard. The fried rice tasted fresh and was simply seasoned. Overall, the meal tasted OK, but was not spectacular. Due to the price and proximity to the hotel, I would probably order from this restaurant again in the future if I stayed at that hotel again. Although I would not go out-of-the-way to visit the restaurant, if you are in the area, you cannot get a better value.
