Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went to Panache on a midweek early evening, before going to the theatre. We received a very warm welcome, and shown to our table in this lovely restaurant. We ordered a mixed platter starter which was fantastic, and then a couple of dishes from...the ‘House specials’ section of the menu, which were part of a deal I think (Mon to Thursday). Both our dishes were superb, my partners saag chicken was the best she’s tasted. Excellent food and service, we’ll definitely be back next time we’re in the area. Highly recommended!More

Bland food comically bad service. The onion bhaji just tasted of oil. Veg sag was much like some vegetables in gravy.. our first waiter threw the menus o to the table as an indication that we should sit there.

For the last two weekends I have had a takeaway from Panache. The food is nice but different dishes do seem to merge into one. As an example, my Chicken Jalfrezi in week one was almost identical to my Chicken Korahi in week two. My...real issue though is either the 10% discount on takeaways. On both ocassions the full discount was not applied. The first week I put this down to a genuine error so on my second visit I made note of the prices from the current menu and once again the full discount was not applied. I can only assume the owner does not know how to operate a calculator or this is a genuine ruse to stick a bit extra in the pot. Come on Panache, if you’re going to offer a discount then do it fairly and honesty, otherwise just charge full price.More
