The food was great, the staff efficient and friendly. I don't often drink cocktails, so I don't know if they were unusually expensive, but I felt that $18-$19 for simple cocktails was quite a high price, and only had one. But maybe that's just me not getting out enough! Will definitely visit again!

We have now been twice to this restaurant. Our main reason is my husband loves the Miso soup and we both find the flathead fish very tasty, fresh and perfectly cooked. I also enjoy the hot chocolate.

Well this place is amazing!!! Absolutely loved everything about it. The staff were very professional, the place is in keeping with the theme, and the ginger fish meal was excellent. The best fish we have tasted in Tasmania.Pure white with a twist on the coating of marinade. Liked the way we could choose from the menu and order by mobile so less interaction with covid in mind. Would definitely return.

I really love coming to Panko Chan it is a wonderful restaurant with a fun, socially oriented dining experience. My only suggestion would be to include some kind of light sauce to go with the kingfish as I think it would go very well with it.

Ordered a few things which required special attention like no spice in the ramen and no ice in a drink etc due to sore gums. waitress was attentive, however Nothing came out correctly. Three ramens ordered, last one came out, while other two were almost finished, timing is not great. Ramens have very little pork in them. Food is tasty.

Thank you for adding a birthday candle to my son's dessert, a special touch. I was pleased to find it was warm enough, as I've found it chilly on previous visits. As always the food was delicious and friendly helpful service.

I love your restaurant, food and service! Only issue was I ordered 2 things from menu that were obviously not recorded or heard and I missed out on them! Didn’t like to say anything by the time I realised it wasn’t coming, thought it might be rude! But overall, great food, great service, definitely be back! Cheers

A loud, large table took away from our first experience here unfortunately. The service staff (two young ladies) were pleasant but run off their feet. We didn't receive one of our dishes or a water refill, but were too uncomfortable to follow up. Could possibly give this another chance. Thanks.

The menu is less interesting than it used to be. The staff seem a little tired (post Covid?). Lovely that the front window opens up. Tables well spaced out.

It was a cold evening, and unfortunately the restaurant heating was not up to the challenge

Ramen is tasteless, quite disappointed. Fried chicken is pretty good though.

We are regulars at Panko chan and always bring guests from out of town. We usually love it however it wasn’t up to the usual standard on our last visit. It didn’t feel like care and finesse was taken with the food - the dressing for the kingfish was virtually non existent and the calamari was very salty (although a replacement was provided). It felt like maybe the staff were a bit overwhelmed and it showed. Other than that we had a lovely night and our guests enjoyed it, it’s just that we know it can be so much better. We will be back!

A pity we couldn't bring our own wine. Just a tad noisy wait person was very pleasant.

Freezing cold inside with all patrons still in their puffer jackets. Very chaotic service with timings on food and condiment arrivals haphazard for our group of 8. Have eaten there previously as a couple and had much better service. Disappointing!
