    This is honestly the best Chinese restaurant. The food quality is so fresh and tasty, it has so many incredible vegetarian alternative meat options which they make in house and are all honestly so good. The crispy shredded mock beef in spicy ok sauce is my all time favourite! I haven’t found another Chinese in Manchester which matches this!

    I went to the restaurant with my boyfriend on New Year's Eve and it was fantastic. We decided to go based on reviews and pictures and we found it even better than expected. Beautiful place, with friendly staff, amazing food, good music and reasonable prices. I would recommend the Quarter Slowed Cooked Aromatic Crispy Duck for the taste and the stunning presentation. For dessert, we loved the Banana Fritters with Syrup and Ice Cream. 10/10 service overall. The best place that we could have chosen to end the year. We will definitely come back.

    Fortunate to have eaten here a few times and it never disappoints. The food its so fresh and tasty. The staff are really friendly and happy to advise on dishes. The portion sizes are really good. I’m loathed to say how wonderful this place in in case it gets too popular and we can’t get a table!

    Having lived in China for eight years, we appreciate authentic food. The acid test for me was when asking for a regional dish that was not on the menu – the request was met with understanding and delivered superbly.

    The Blue Eyed Panda is an excellent Chinese Restaurant. The food is first class, and Lily, who is front of house is a delight. A good choice of wines is complemented by a welcoming and refreshing atmosphere. We can't fault it.

    We visited this restaurant as we were staying close by and the reviews were excellent. We had Chicken Wings and mixed Dim Sum for starters - all beautifully cooked and tasty. I was also intrigued with the Beef Brisket with Chinese Curry Sauce, so ordered this as well as a Singapore Vermicelli - and they certain tasted wonderful and so full of flavour. The service was excellent and attentive, so overall a good find - and certainly better than some we've had in Chinatown.

    Overall the meal was good, staff were pleasant, but service was a bit slow and seemed disorganised. We had starter attempted to be delivered twice. We waited for 10 minutes for someone to make eye contact to ask for the bill. Restaurant was quite busy, but would definitely benefit from more FOH service staff.
