Pani's is one of those rare places - family owned and been there for such a long time with a loyal following of regulars as well as visitors who look beyond the main streets. Not much to look at from outside but you do not judge a book by its cover. Excellent reasonably priced food and wine - well cooked,... More

We followed a recommendation for this meal and I am not sure it was right choice for a meal with business colleagues. I could see this being very popular with student popular and at lunchtimes as the toasties looked excellent value. There was a wide range of choice and servings were generous. Music was quite loud and a large number... More

We have been going to Panis for years. It never disappoints. Brilliant service, authentic cuisine and amazing value. It has a lively atmosphere so not necessarily recommended for a romantic night more a place to enjoy good food and wine with company/groups where you can chat and make merry. Service is fast and the coffee is brilliant.

Delicious quality food, lovely atmosphere & surprisingly good value. Staff were efficient and accommodating. Caters well for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. We dropped in last minute on a Friday and they managed to squeeze us in. I'm not sure how given the quality of the place. My only complaint is I live on the other side of the world... More

If you're vegetarian, you must definitely give this place a try. I had the vegetarian lasagne and it was generous and extremely tasty. The tomato sauce was full of flavourful and the greens were fresh. The bruschetta, garlic bread, even the chips, were extremely fresh and tasty. I can't praise this place enough.
