Fantastic food and service with a great atmosphere. The gluten free menu was extensive and the staff knowledgeable. We had travelled from York to meet friends down from Edinburgh and Pani’s had been recommended by a local we now know why and it’ll be our go to place when we meet again in Newcastle.

Booked Pani’s through table agent for 2x groups of 6. Bit concerned as I had not spoken to anyone in the restaurant. Need not have worried, greeted at the door by name and taken straight to our table. Satisfying the tastes of 12 different souls is no small feat. Gracious staff accommodated one of our party who did not eat spicy, garlic or chilli by cooking plain chicken especially for her. We all loved the food, felt it was good value and the ambience set us up perfectly for our trip to theatre.
