“Best Indian Restaurant in Staffordshire?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

My family and I have been regular visitors to Panache for a number of years. We can not fault the food,service and restaurant. It's interior design is inspiring with a menu that matches any restaurant charging an awful lot more! We look forward to our almost weekly visits we especially like the booth seating And for those family events the VIP dinning area is very private and makes you feel like a rock star. Just thought I should share our experience of a most wonderful dining experience.

“Excellent food and service.. Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I have been to this curry house about 4 times in the last month (oops)... I think it's one of the nicest if not the nicest curry house i have ever eaten in. The decor is nice, staff are nice and the food is lovely and well priced. Their set menu deal is good value also.

Highly recommended

“Friendly staff and good set menu offer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We were in Stafford on the way to Alton Towers so we followed the reviews and I took my 2 children to Panache and we had a nice meal on a thursday night
Clearly there must be a lot of local competition as they were doing a 2 course meal for £8.95 mid week rising to £11.95 over the weekend, which offered chicken, lamb or mixed veg with a choice of 8 sauces, which the waiter explained what the differences were.
As a mid week curry this was great offer and the starters were also really good, and all of us enjoyed our curries. The standard menu also had some interesting mains I would of also liked to try.
The waiter was really nice and explained the options and overall we had a good meal, but the restaurant was quite and slightly cold as half of it was closed off.
I would recommend and were welcoming to families.

“Really good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

First time we have tried this Indian restaurant (definitely not a curry house) and it won't be the last. Quality service in really nice surroundings. Lots of space between tables with the tables themselves a generous size and napkins that were big enough to completely cover your lap and more. There is plenty of choice on the menu with new tastes galore and it was all well cooked, well presented and hot. Not cheap ( we had papads and pickle, shared veg platter as starter, two fish mains with boiled rice, two breads, three puddings, 2 coffees and drinks of 2 pints lager and 2 tonics for £73) but it was value for the money. Recommended if you want a slightly more up market night out with an Indian focus.

“One of the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We're connoiseurs of Indian eating and this was good. Not cheap but very good value. Some tasty original starters on the menu ( I had the duck) and an excellent choice of main courses. Comfortable, spacious dining room (arm chairs at our table !) and a very cosy reception area next to the bar. Most acommodating, cheerful waiting staff we 've come across - several served us during the evening, all equally friendly, happy to engage in conversation and taking the trouble to serve us at the pace we wanted. We were even invited to move tables if we wanted to. The staff seemed equally hospitable to the very young children of a family across the room from us. Really nice coffee at the end and a double helping of mint chocolates rounded the evening off. Even the bill was a clear, no-nonsense print-out instead of the usual hand-written tear-off which is often difficult to decipher. Large car park surrounding the restaurant. Impressive.
