Royal Panda Restaurant has been satisfying diners in Manticao, Misamis Oriental since 2017. Tomorrow, March 18, 2021, Northern Mindanao’s favorite all-you-can-eat Asian buffet will open its Cagayan de Oro branch at Caltex NHA along Kauswagan Highway.
Like its Manticao branch, Royal Panda CDO has Asian-inspired interiors, complete with Chinese-style lanterns. The dining area is spacious, with enough elbow room and space for physical distancing.
Likewise, the buffet table is located on one side of the restaurant, so diners are assured of comfort and convenience when getting food.
What Royal Panda Offers
Aside from Chinese dimsum and Filipino favorites, Royal Panda CDO also has a sushi corner. I tried the California Maki and Cheesy Maki Roll and they were more than satisfying – even if I didn’t dip them in Kikoman and Wasabi sauce.
Royal Panda is also known for its dimsum platter and box, which contains assorted pork and non-pork dimsum options such as quail egg siomai, shark’s fin siomai, beef siomai, pork siomai, Japanese siomai, shrimp siomai, and chicken quail egg siomai, among others.
Ms. Jane Dy, operations manager of Royal Panda Restaurants in Misamis Oriental, assured quality in the restaurant’s menu as it partners with respected suppliers, specifically Monterey Meatshop and Pepsi Co.
Royal Panda CDO likewise has a new normal special – its take-out menu, which includes Chinese and Filipino favorites and the dimsum platters.

Royal Panda is open from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. As part of the health protocols set by the City Government of Cagayan de Oro, diners are encouraged to book ahead of their schedule for dining.
