    Panya has an extensive menu so every diner can choose a meal / cuisine they are in the mood for. The indoor and outdoor spaces are comfortable -- looks like larger parties can be easily accomodated. The space was clean, inviting and the staff were very pleasant and on top of everything. The pastry case showcases their best baked goods. (only suggestion, keep the hand sanitizer dispenser by host stand well supplied)

    The food was great and normally we do get pretty good service. But on this occasion we ordered 5 dishes. Two of the main dishes came out really quick, but the third took 35 minutes. By the time the third entree came out, the others had already finished eating their dinner. I can understand that certain dishes may take longer, but this was a bit much. The main problem though is that during this time, our server never came to our table to check on us.

    After being seated, it took almost 10 minutes to get water and menus. It was busy and we were told that the restaurant was short staffed. We ordered and got our food 20 minutes later. Our server was inattentive. We ordered dessert and coffee. It was served with no utensils. We were seated outside on the lanai and had to flag down our server for the check. We never received the check, so after 10 minutes, we went inside the restaurant to pay.

    Entrance showed "ring bell for service" but there was no bell. no one came to greet me . finally i went inside to bar to ask for service and to be seated. staff was very unfriendly. food was horrible. everything was salty! ordered 7 entrees and everyone's food was terrible. could barely eat it. appetizers were "okay". this place has really gone downhill.

    We had an early lunch so decided to order three appetizers to share. The spring rolls and the Lup Lup were great, the shrimp gyoza was fine but needed more flavor. The yuzu mojito and mimosas hit the spot, very refreshing! Service was excellent from recommendations to timely visits to our table, to taking some photos for us.

    Main issue was with the greeter. When we got there, she said nothing to us, didn't smile nor welcome us. Told her we had a res, then sat us. No "enjoy your meal" or anything. A simple welcome or smile would be appreciated. It's the first impression of the restaurant and if your greeter/hostess acts like a b*#$%, it kind of turns you off to the rest of the experience. Other than that, food was good, we were lucky enough to get the last strawberry shortcake. Wait staff was great and friendly.

    Initially, the service was attentive. After we ordered, the wait staff hardly came around. Our food was brought out one hour after we ordered it, and only after we flagged down the server twice to check on the order. There were only 3 of us, and one of the entrees that was supposed to be served hot, was not: it had obviously been sitting on the counter for a long time. That friend had to get out of her seat to get a staff member's attention to inform them about the tepid dish. The other two entrees were freshly made. It didn't seem to be all that busy or hectic; there were no parties waiting for a table and our reservation was at 1:00. It was 1:20 pm when we ordered.

    The price charged for a glass of wine was more than that listed on the menu; I felt this to be a little deceptive. Outside dining was quite noisy. The dinner was good as always and service was good. My dining companions enjoyed their meals as well. I had the tiramisu for dessert, which was not very good. I ate half then threw away the rest. I would recommend Panya to a friend only with caveats.

    Our waitress took a long time to bring us our food, refill our drinks and give us the bill. She also had a negative vibe while trying to be nice. She asked my friend that was with me if she switched parking tickets, she said cause some people do that, mind you I didn’t even have a parking ticket.

Taiwan Beef Noodles, Currey Laksa, Shoyu Fish with Tofu, and Pork Chops in spicy black bean sauce were the items we ordered. Everything was wonderful. We've had a variety of the items on their menu over the years and always consistently tasty!!!

    Panya is always a great spot for casual dining - one of our favorite place to go to! Slightly high on pricing, but I think everywhere price have gone up. Our server was Stephanie - very attentive, courteous and came back to check on us several times after we got our food. We had an enjoyable date night!

    The world food tour continued …. At Panya Bistro in the Hokua condo. We stopped in for an early dinner after seeing Beautiful at the Concert Hall (a bravura performance by the cast). We arrived early (4pm) so the restaurant was pretty empty but were told by the hostess about their 90-minute time limit policy. Okay, better to tell us up front than during our meal. Service was leisurely so that might have been somewhat of a concern but it worked out in the end. We started with a couple of Hendricks gin and tonics with limes instead of the more proper slice of cucumber. A very refreshing beginning …though I wish bartenders would note what garnish goes with certain gins. We ordered three dishes: Pork Chops over fried rice, Pad Thai with chicken and Stir Fried Vegetables with Beef. First off, the pork chop dish is huge! Slices of breaded boneless chops are placed over a subtle fried rice (Chinese style … on the drier side) and covered with a very sweet tomato sauce. The texture and taste reminded me of waffles with maple syrup. It was very good but the sweetness of the tomato sauce was off-putting to me; not bad, but unexpected. The Pad Thai was fine; nothing to complain about. The highlight dish for me was the stir fried vegetables with beef. The vegetables (broccoli, green beans, slices of carrot and mushroom) were crisp and the cubes of beef were very tender. The sauce was thin but savory; it let the beautiful vegetables take center stage. I could have just eaten this dish with a bowl of rice. No room for dessert but I finished my meal with a Vietnamese iced coffee. The coffee was excellent and shone through the generous serving of milk. So cool and refreshing; I could have consumed two glasses. Final thoughts … we hadn’t been to Panya Bistro in a long time; the food was very good and the service was fine (we left after 93 minutes). Parking in the Hokua is convenient and free with validation. Best of all, the prices were very reasonable.

    The service was poor & very slow and and request like ice for your iced tea or water which had melted, required several “ask” before we’d receive the ice. Each waiter was not personable at all. Very disappointing, used to love this place.

    3 friends & I were celebrating a birthday and have not gathered in a while we specially chose Panya since we remember it to be cozy, welcoming snd pleasant but we were quite disappointed because once we arrived we were told that we needed to quickly put in our order because the kitchen was closing we weren’t even welcomed yet? Seemed there was no pleasantness with the waitress at all seemed she was just there like a robot just to take our order, rarely checked on us. For the most part of the night I saw five employees including her gathering behind the cash register most of our dinner and we were there for only an hour and a half at the most. Hopefully nxt time will be better?

    Overall we had a very nice experience. They accomodated us outside on the patio and had our table ready on schedule. The service was very good. Attentive and friendly servers. The only knock is that they undercooked my meat. Asked for well done and got medium rare. Rather than make a fuss I choked it down. Otherwise will probably return.
