We have a Panda Express at Newport Mall. It must be there for over 20 years.
Americanized-Chinese food is wildly popular here and some of the best of the best can be found in the area. While at the mall…Panda Express is the busiest fast food/fast food option in a food court filled with so many other options like Popeye’s – Taco Bell- BK- Nathan’s/Arthur Treacher’s – Arby’s – Blimpie – Sbarro – two fast food sushi places – a popular local Indian fast food spot – and more I can’t even remember.
It’s spotless and busy (very important when considering the menu of fried foods with some sweet sauces).
The mall is right at the entrance of the Holland Tunnel and with the tax savings (3.5% sales tax no tax on clothing) vs. New York…there are crowds at all times. Never a thing out of place at that Panda Express in all these years.
