As always the food was excellent. My two guests were equally satisfied with their meals. The ambience was just right and you could have a conversation due to the subtle background music and the fact that tables were further apart than normally. A good evening all round.

What a special night we had at Pani's - I can't wait to go back! Staff were friendly and professional, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming, and the food will not be forgotten in a hurry. Great range of vegetarian options, and delicious, fresh ingredients. I'm excited explore the menu more next time!
