“Poor food at exorbitant price”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I have been to a lot of Italian restaurants and have heard good things about Pan Pan but my personal visit was very unsatisfactory. The food was bland and the price does not even remotely justify the food. Other pan pan may be good but the one experience I had made sure that I will not be going back.

“Poor value.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We dined at the Pan Pan Restaurant in the Central Shopping Center in central Pattaya. The setting was pleasant and service OK. The food, however was bland and tasteless particularly for italian food and not value for maney, We ordered a carafe of red wine that was a very cheap Italian red and were charge Bht 500 for a half litre. The wine was terrible. Very expensive for rubbish and from the quality of the food and the prices charged, it was easy to work out that the restaurant was not relying on return of business, just on the once only tourist clients. I would suggest that if you want good Italian at a very good price, take a "baht bus" (cost Bht10) out towards Jomtien and on the left half way there you will find Bouni Restrauant. The food and prices are excellent.

“Good food but too slow”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

My experience was at the Pan Pan Restaurant at Central Mall in Pattaya.

I was there with my partner. We wait few minutes for a table which was appreciated. We just ordered 1 Caprese Salad, 1 Tuna Salad and 1 Pizza. It took 30 minutes to bring the tuna salad, 45 for the Caprese and 1 hour for the Pizza. Then after observing, the staff were giving priority to bloody Russians. They arrived and got the food faster than anyone else of another nationality (name it asian, european, americans, etc). I can understand that Russians are demanding and the ones who are spending money in Thailand but come on ... more respect to those farang who are coming to Thailand for several decades!

Despite of my russian indigestion on this Italian restaurant the salad and pizza was OK but due to the low level of service I will rate this restaurant poor for them not to recognise that the customer is the king (all customers not just some).

Food for Thought.

“Bad Fast food at the price of fine dining”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The first meal to arrive at our table arrived about 5 minutes after ordering, the next after another five minutes. Good restaurants bring the main meals at the same time! The carbonara was strange to say the least, the sauce was almost like scrambled eggs and had a gritty type of texture. The lasagne was like a frozen lasagne from the supermarket that had been reheated. The location of this restaurant means you are surrounded by either Russians or old foreign men with their "ladies". We ate at the original pan pan in pattaya last year and were quite happy. This new venture is not a nice experience and the price is that of a fine Italian restaurant in Bangkok. Don't bother going there.

“long time established Italian restaurant in town”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Nice and cozy place. Not too formal. If you love dessert and icecream after your food, you will have lots of choices here.
