“Indian Food - Kiwi style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

We frequent this restaurant whenever we feel like good Indian food. The atmosphere is pleasant with very good friendly staff & quick service. Good sized servings to share. The naan breads are very good & it's nice to share there mixed platter. Highly reccommended.

“Pankawalla is definitely worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Pankawalla delivered on 'bang for buck. My companion and I had the banquet, which was an excellent option from a menu with many tempting (and therefore difficult) choices. I remember this restaurant from 2006 - it was good back then, too, so clearly they're onto a good thing. Staff are pleasant and efficient. The interior is stylish but not overpowering. As of 31 December 2013, the banquet for two and bottle of pinot noir was $110 for two, and we were also able to take away what we couldn't eat. Definitely worth it.

“NZ adapted Indian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

We had mixed platter to start. Garlic naan and rice shared with lamb rogan josh, chicken tikka, hot beef curry, fish curry, panneer and a couple other can't remember name. Very toned down even we ordered Indian hot. Nonetheless the service was good considering there is only one waitress.
