Not many years ago this “fast food” chain started opening in Jeddah and Riyadh, mainly in malls, and kept cementing its popularity slowly among residents and visitors of these two cities. It did not do it by the cheer number of its branches or an aggressive advertisements campaign. It went for it the traditional way, which was offering new products and maintaining the quality of their food and service. Eventually, they managed to win us as customers, and to make a great name for itself, deservingly so.

The main focus and “shtick” (if you want to call it that) of Panino’s is offering Italian style sandwiches and pizzas. They also offer different kinds of salads and desserts, and recently they added soups to their menus. They also update their menus frequently with different types of sandwiches. They have many healthy choices that are highlighted in their slick and beautiful menu and you can also change your order to brown focaccia bread instead of regular Panini for a nominal price. My personal favorite sandwiches are the Ciprico (Halloumi cheese, tomato slices, and tapenado sauce), Pollo Romano (grilled chicken, arugula, mayo, and balsamic sauce), and Rosto (roast beef, salad, fried onion, and lemon mayo). They have a wide selection of pizzas and the good thing is you can order them either by slice or as a whole. The salads are great too, and their lentil soup is decent as well. Some of their branches like this one reviewed here offer started offering a salad bar.

For dinning in, I find Panino’s venues some of the cleanest and nicest chains in town, and they are nicely decorated as well. They have delivery service, but to be honest I have never tried it to judge how efficient it is. I personally will take Panino’s over any of its competitors in Saudi Arabia local or international. They may be charge slightly higher prices than their peers, but it is understandable when they are well above any competitor in terms of quality and uniqueness. Their motto is “Experience The Difference” and they are 100% right about that.
