Restaurant review: Panos Cafe Taiwan

By Ian Bartholomew  /  Staff reporter

Pasta, salads, soups and pocket sandwiches are all available, all with the same “local” twist, but with not much real local flavor. The coffee is mediocre.

As for the decor, the designers seem to have gone out of their way to make the seating uncomfortable and the ambiance rather cold, and while Panos offers good Wi-fi, it does not offer power sockets. The use of an electronic card for ordering is a great way of running up a tab if one wanted to segue from lunch to afternoon drinks, or from a coffee to cakes (a small selection that have a rather too “homemade” appearance to display well under glass), but its just a pity that the products available and the ambiance are just not interesting enough to justify the card’s extensive use.
