Awesome service and food. Best in NPL but they are pricey, can be one off celebration point not a regular eatery. .. Its cousin India Today can be the regular one... as its more value for money...

The food as always is impeccable here especially for the price they charge. We chose Pankawalla for my birthday lunch & thought we'd celebrate getting another year older with a single drink each as we have a baby. This is something small but I was quite annoyed. I ordered a small sparkling wine with food and my husband asked for... More

We frequent this restaurant whenever we feel like good Indian food. The atmosphere is pleasant with very good friendly staff & quick service. Good sized servings to share. The naan breads are very good & it's nice to share there mixed platter. Highly reccommended.

I remember this restaurant from 2006 - it was good back then, too, so clearly they're onto a good thing. Staff are pleasant and efficient. The interior is stylish but not overpowering.... More

We had mixed platter to start. Garlic naan and rice shared with lamb rogan josh, chicken tikka, hot beef curry, fish curry, panneer and a couple other can't remember name. Very toned down even we ordered Indian hot. Nonetheless the service was good considering there is only one waitress.

As above not worth anything else But I have to because trip advisor wants me to. Over priced for what others offer. Only saving grace was the mixed platter
