Just left Panas after our most recent visit. We must have been 7 or 8 times now. Always beautiful food and wonderful service. I can recommend pretty much anything on the menu but the Prawn Malabar was amazing.More

Sorry, I don't remember if the main door is wide enough. Give them a call to ask as they were very accommodating.
