I think this was the only restaurant within the River Safari compound, so we had lunch here out of convenience.I got myself the dumpling ramen which was quite bad. Everything tasted pretty artificial and processed. I couldn't even bring myself to eat more than one dumpling. I'm the kind who hates to waste food, hence this says a lot.

After a fun fun trip at the River Safari,  I decided to settle down in this restaurant to have their signature must eat panda pao. 

I was really super tiring to dine-in here as before you able to enjoy the food, you need to join in the long queue to place your order.  Took me around 25mins of queue before I managed to grab these cute little buns.

2 flavours are available, which includes the chocolate custard and red bean,which both selling at $2.90 each.  The pau texture is firm and soft, but i suppose it is not thick and not much filling can be found inside.  Red bean paste was alright but too sweet.  The chocolate custard taste more towards the chocolate flavour and I cannot really taste the custard flavour at all. 

Restaurant was quite warm as too crowded and squeezy.  Service was fast and friendly.

They have two flavors for the panda pau, which are red bean and chocolate custard.
Red Bean Panda Pau ($2.90/ea, $11.50 for 4). Expect nothing, but a cute panda pau, with normal serving and the usual taste of red bean we have in coffeeshops.

Ordered the Crispy Chicken with salt and pepper ($6.90). Chicken meat is quite tender, and not bad though. Perhaps one of the few dishes worth ordering?
Longan Beancurd ($2.90), and Mango Pudding ($2.90). Longan Beancurd taste of almond, and comes with two longans residing at the bottom. Beancurd quality is firm, unlike those we usually have.. erm... not to my liking... Mango Pudding is average too, but at least better than Longan Beancurd. Sweeter?

Personally, food here is pretty average, and not worth the wait if it’s going to take ages for one to be even near the ordering counter. The only thing that might interests one, could be the panda pau which just seems to be an overpriced normal red bean pau.

One word: cute panda pau (okay, that's three).Definitely a crowd pulling item. Despite having read some really "blah" reviews about the food here and knowing this to be a tourist trap, we still decided to walk into it and get the too-cute-to-resist panda pau to try.

Mama Panda Kitchen is a cross between a restaurant and fast food outlet. The Chinese-inspired decor here with lanterns and bamboo dividers is something you might expect in dim sum restaurants. But the environment here is more casual and instead of giving your orders to waiters who will bring the food to your table, you have to join a snaking queue to order and collect your food at the service counters, much like a fast food outlet.

Panda Chocolate Custard Pau ($2.90)
Since this was just newly released when we went, we tried this first. The panda pau here are designed to imitate the face of a panda and they are served up in bamboo containers dim-sum style. Unfortunately, the chocolate custard pau we got was a flop. The bun was too damp and felt too sticky and clammy. The chocolate custard filling is actually quite decent, but there is too little of it and its flavour could not redeem the rest of it enough.

Panda Pau (Red Bean) ($2.90)
This is way better than the chocolate custard pau. The texture is soft and spongy and not damp or sticky like the chocolate pau. The red bean filling is also quite decent and not too sweet. This made us wonder if the failed chocolate pau was a one-off and we were just unlucky enough to get a bad batch. Unlike the chocolate pau, we enjoyed this. But some may find the price tag of $2.90 to be a tad tough to swallow.

Spring Roll (2 for $3.90)
Unlike the cute panda pau, presentation is so-so for this. Even so, this is among one of the lower priced items on their menu. The spring rolls are quite crispy though, with a nice crunch to the skin, but we find the grated filling to be a tad mushy for our liking.

Mango Pudding ($2.90)
The mango pudding here is rather creamy, not very smooth. It feels more like mousse to us. You can taste the mango flavour easily enough but unfortunately, I am not really that keen on it overall.

Soft Drink (Iced Lemon Tea) in Souvenir Cup ($3.90)
Many will probably baulk at paying $3.90 for just a cup of run-of-the-mill lemon tea. But wait! The soft drink here comes in a plastic panda-print souvenir cup with straw which you can bring home as a keepsake or to reuse. You can choose from a selection of Coke, Coke Light, Sprite, Soya Milk, Ice Lemon Tea and Fanta Grape. For $3.90, it is indeed pricey for a drink but certainly one of the cheapest and decent Panda related souvenir around that you can get in comparison to the other items at the Panda souvenir shop!

Long story short, the food at Mama Panda are really quite over priced especially for the mains like the Shanghai Wanton Ramen Set ($15.90) which is really quite pricey even with the extras it comes with. I'd recommend just going for the snacks instead. Items not to be missed are the panda pau. The pau may be pretty much standard tasting and is also pricey to boot, but seriously, what the heck, everyone is still going to get it to try anyway, so just get it. Resistance is futile when it comes to adorable looking panda pau that look up at you with doleful eyes when you open the container! That, and get the soft drink in souvenir cups for a "decently priced" souvenir!

Many set lunches they have.We ordered,Panda Pau & Spicy chilli oil- fried wantons.& the drink.
Yes if you top up your drink with little more penny,you can be served your drink with a lovely memorable sovenir panda drink tumbler.

My kids were so happy to have that.Even the restaurant is located inside the ZOO ,the prize is normal only.

Made of Red Bean paste, the bun was adorable. I ordered them, but really can’t bear to swallow them. Struggling quite a few minutes, felt so sorry and I finally ate them. Softly sweet, the texture was nicely fluffy. Best eaten while it was still hot, the bun was filling. $2.90 for the price if I was not mistaken, it was not cheap but impressive.

The soft drink which costs $3.90, is served in a cute printed souvenir cup, which can take home. (Note that it considers cheap in River Safari as a bottle of soft drink at the vending machine costs $4 and a ice blend at the push cart costs $7.90).

The steamed rice is quite plain in taste. Luckily there is chopped chilli to add flavour to the rice.

Overall the food is nothing to shout about. The service is poor too maybe due to the crowd.

I also ordered a Salted Pepper Chicken dish as finger food. I was quite disappointed, no effort at all. It is like some frozen chicken which i can get it from NTUC, fry it then sprinkle some salt and pepper over it. Wasted $6.90 over it...

We consciously walked into this tourist trap and allowed ourselves to fall prey to these irresistibly alluring Panda Paus! At $3.90 each, it's indeed a hefty price to pay. The Panda Paus come in 2 flavours – Red Bean and Chocolate Custards which I though actually tasted pretty similar. The quality was as expected – nothing much to shout about. But heck, who goes there for quality food to begin with?! For the reader's info, you'll only get to enjoy the 4 pcs set promo at $11.50 (u.p. $11.60) only

The drinks ($3.90) come in a cute Jia Jia Kai Kai imprinted tumbler which we thought was a great attempt to justify the hefty price tag as well.

Due to the cuteness of Panda I got the Panda Bao($2.90) and the Panda Cappuccino ($5.50). The bao comes with red bean paste filling, tasted good, in fact is the best of all the dishes. Cappuccino has not much coffee taste, so it failed to me.

The fried lotus chips tasted quite nice. This is the 2nd best among all the food.

Bought a panda pau at mama panda kitchen after seeing kaikai and jiajia! It's actually very expensive for a pau but it's so cute so I couldn't resist not buying. So after taking photos of the cute pau, we proceed with eating it! Much to our disappointment, it's just an ordinary red bean paste bun and it didn't taste very nice also, the red bean paste was quite dry. For $2.90, other than it being aesthetically nice and a bit bigger, I don't think it's worth it.

Panda Pau is shaped to look alike like a panda head and it is filled with sweet and fragrance red bean paste which similar to "steamed red bao (豆沙包)" but with an over-rated price of S$2.90 each or 4 for S$11.50. Although the items are pricey but yet you still can almost all the occupied tables are having at least one of this Panda Pau.

The arrival of Kai Kai and Jia Jia, the pair of giant pandas in the Singapore Zoological Gardens has received nothing short of a media blitz. Even before its official launch, the River Safari is seeing upwards of 3,000 visitors a day.

With the hype surrounding the pandas, it came as no surprise when I found Mama Panda Kitchen opened right after the exit of the Giant Panda Forest. The restaurant blended right in with a facade of bamboo and wood, and was liberally decorated with pictures of pandas on its walls.

Passing by I couldn't help but try Panda Bao, touted as Kai Kai and Jia Jia's favourite bun. At $2.90 for one, it was pretty expensive for a bun that I had no idea whatsoever regarding the filling.

First impression wise, I gotta give them credit for getting the look and feel just right. Served piping hot in a bamboo steamer, Panda Bao got 100 marks from me for looking like a cute albeit sad-eyed panda. Getting down to tasting - the dark brown bits that made up the eyes, ears and nose were chocolate-flavoured flour strips. Breaking the bun in half, I was treated hot molten red bean paste within. Overall it wasn't too sweet and went well to accentuate the taste of the otherwise plain bun.

Only gripes? $2.90 is just that bit too pricey for a red bean paste bun (even if it looks cute). AND pandas love bamboo. I don't know so much about red bean paste
