Great service

Great friendly service and good food. It may be a more expensive Indian place to dine but it does offer regular deals, great food, and the service is better then any other place I dined in New Plymouth.

Having lived in London for many years I think i'm a good judge of curries! We often have takeaways from here. Its a stunning restaurant, with an amazing menu, but Pankawalla also manages to produce stunning takeaway meals too. The menu is often revised, and the chefs are happy to create things that are not listed on the menu (I... More

However since its recent revamp, Pankawalla has gone back. They now scrimp on quantity and the quality of food is not what it used to be. Naan breads (different flavours) all... More

The service and decor at Pankawalla is great. The menu offers a good choice for all - however the special menu offered, we found to be quite misleading. Specials clearly stated any 2 mains and a glass of wine each for $41.99. This was not so recently, as some of the more expensive mains (prices ranged from $18 to $23)... More
