Seamless wedding catering experience
I would give Annie and her team 10 stars if it were possible. My husband and I can not recommend this place enough! Annie was extremely professional, a great listener and an absolute pleasure to work with (we planned everything ourselves). She helped us curate the perfect menu and our wedding guests are still raving about how great the food was (our wedding was 6 months ago). Annie helped us work through many details including linens, rentals, BevMo ordering/coordination, figuring out serving plates for our donut and candy bar. The food and service (family style) were both absolutely amazing, easy to manage and went off without a hitch! She evened saved my husband and me a plate of appetizers in our changing area so we’d have a bite to eat amidst the craziness. Thank you so much Annie! We are so grateful for you and the Panda Catering team.

Our experience with Adam, Annie, and the team at Panda Inn was wonderful from beginning to end. We kicked off the entire process with an email to Adam, who quickly set us up with a visit to Panda Inn in Pasadena for a taste test. By the way, this free “taste test” was a full 10 course meal (lobster, entire live fish, peking duck, etc.) for us and our parents, no strings attached. The food was so delicious that we nearly signed the contract on the spot. The thing that impressed us the most was Adam’s confidence towards the food. He knew that with his deep experience and background in catering, he would be able to achieve the flavors and experience we wanted to make our wedding one to remember. (Spoiler alert: he was right)
The food and service at the wedding did not change from our experience at the food tasting. Annie did a walkthrough of our venue at Hilton Doubletree with the catering manager to figure out the logistics before the wedding. On the actual day of the wedding, many of our guests didn’t realize Panda had fine Chinese dining, so they were very impressed when the food started to come out and it was legit Chinese food. Adam even stopped by to check on everything and even serviced some of our family members. We had so much food that many of the tables took multiple boxes of leftovers home. All the guests also got chocolate-covered fortune cookies!
Now that our wedding is over, we can confidently say that choosing Panda Inn was definitely the right choice. We looked at other caterers, and even though they were cheaper, the food quality was not even close. Even the level of service at the food tasting was night and day, since some caterers make you pay for additional guests or share tables with other people. If you value food quality at your wedding and want to treat your guests to super awesome legit Chinese food, we definitely recommend choosing Panda Catering.

We took a chance on Panda Catering based upon reviews on yelp for our 12/9/17 wedding and glad that we did. Adam and his team are professional, responsive and made the overall process very easy for us.
Yes, Panda Catering is a division of Panda Restaurant Group that owns Panda Express but the food is completely different. With that being said, we requested Orange Chicken on a stick as an appetizer because who doesn't love Orange Chicken? We received a lot of compliments from guests that the food was excellent (honey walnut shrimp, chicken garlic noodles, filet mignon beef, scallion lobster) and not your average chicken/salmon combo.
I can't recommend them enough for your wedding or event.
