For Business or Pleasure!

Panz has been a favourite of ours since we first found it, and it's time to add our support for this clean and friendly downtown gem to the list of positive reviews here.
If you're familiar with Buddhist vegan fare the menu will be familiar, though they use some interesting and cryptic labels for some of the more popular dishes! Their soups are always great. If not too busy, we can sometimes talk them into making a hybrid version of the Hot & Sour and Wonton soups; especially warming on a wet, wintery evening. Virtue & Kind rice and Bamboo Hot Pot are not to be missed. We also love the Soya Dices Hawaiian Style, but watch out for the ginger!
Panz is easy to find, on Hornby right across from Il Giardino. Panz doesn't have valet parking or singing waiters, but they don't have the high prices either! If you really need your materialism fix you can always get a table by the window at Panz and watch all the Bentley's and Ferrari's pull up across the street;)
I've taken business guests here frequently and always been happy with the results. Even carnivores are not disappointed. The decor is modern, clean and tasteful and the staff are very friendly. In true Buddhist fashion they are soft spoken so don't hesitate to ask for advice to avoid ordering too similar dishes.
We would urge anyone to support this small, friendly, affordable and delicious alternative on the south side of downtown.
Friendly, Tasty, Healthy
