    The food is absolutely wonderful. You don’t even need to understand the ingredients or say the name correctly, everything is perfection. Staff warm and helpful. Nice to have a restaurant that is not just run of the mill same old food.

    The overall experience was great. I had the tuna dish and it was excellent. The others dining with me were not as happy with their meal. My husband had a rice dish with seafood except there was harly any seafood in the dish. The dish was to contain shrimp, octopus and squid but maybe only 4 small pieces of each type of seafood. Our server, Mateo, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the dishes. The happy hour, on a Saturday, was a special surprise. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    The first time we were there was for lunch, it was very tasty. We decided to go there for dinner with my visitors during Thanksgiving. We ordered different plates and each had a distinct flavor of its own, we enjoyed them all. Will visit again.

    We were there on a Friday night, the place was buzzing, and everyone was having a terrific time. Freddy kept us all cocktailed up and the appetizers were excellent. We had 10, mostly from California and Oregon and they were blown away by the quality of the food. We had a terrific night and will be back! Dan and Laura

    Panka has wonderful Peruvian dishes. They did not have enough servers to handle the crowd and one poor guy had to take care of us all.
