Firstly, I don't come from a town renowned for its culture so I'm not looking at this from a superior position.
The food was excellent. The service patchy.
When we went into the restaurant, there was a guy waiting for a takeaway and a couple sat at a table eating.
The waitress was taking a phone order when she deposited the menus on the table with an uninterested demeanour. When she eventually returned to take our order she did show more interest and was happy to take our requests for adjustments to the menu. IE - mushrooms instead of peppers.
The problems we had came from the customers that came in afterwards. Shortly after we arrived a group of four guys came in. They had obviously been enjoying their day and were a little loud but they were not rude and kept themselves to themselves. Just a few minutes later another group came in. From the over loud conversations and the 'banter' they started giving to the four guys, it was apparent that they were locals and, presumably, regulars. The six new people changed the whole atmosphere of the place and were so loud and obnoxious that, after our starters, we arranged for the rest of our order to be a takeaway so we could leave ASAP.
I know that the restaurant cannot always control those coming in but these people have affected me from recommending eating in the restaurant.

Too tired to cook so we had a takeaway, unusual for us, from Pandada Chinese Restaurant and very nice it was too. Tasty but not over spiced and msg as we have found chinese meals can be. and we will use the service again when we need another takeaway.Glad I thought to bring a menu home!!

My fiancee and I visted during the chrimbo limbo and a saturday night -we were the only people in there! There were lots of people collecting takeways but otherwise it was empty.
We had a delicious meal and it was a shame the place lacked any atmosphere.

There really is something for everyone at this restaurant.
Nothing appaers too much trouble.
The wine list is as good as the quality of the food, which the chef
takes a pride in serving just as you like it.
We will now bw regular visitors.
