Step into our Japanese fish market where Panko Chan and his mates are serving seafood that's straight off the boat, direct from the fisherman, with a unique twist.

With full bar service, Panko Chan serves a great range of beers, wines and cocktails providing a great accompaniment to your meal.

Can't find a booking time to suit? We are situated only 130m from Kingston Beach, our take away service provides a great opportunity to enjoy fantastic Fish & Chips on the waterfront.

It was a quiet night when we were there, the food was excellent as was the service. Our waitress knew a lot about the menu and was very helpful.

There was a lack of service. 3 new staff on and not enough direction for them. Had to go to the bar and ask for drinks. Wanted more food but no one came over to serve. Previous visits have been good. Hopefully a one off experience as the food is good.

A great night with a group of 4 family. We shared the delicious dishes, and 2 drank wine, 1 drank beers, and I had hot sake. The restaurant was busy, and it was a Monday night, but the service was still excellent.
Highly recommended.

Wow what an amazing place!
We were promptly seated at our table while the very helpful waitress explained the specials to us, before taking our drink order. My partner had possibly the best tasting peach wine I've ever had while I stuck to a non alcoholic (Deso driver)
We ordered sashimi, takoyaki, mixed chips, chicken karaage and the grilled fish of the day (kingfish)
First of all every single bite was gorgeous although we were very surprised how big the portions were, we certainly weren't complaining. We did have a slight issue with the chicken but the waitress was quick to fix the issue and was extremely nice about it all
The bar attendant was just as great with quickly taking a second drink order and also showing us the bottle of peach wine and also the best way to find it. He also took care of the bill and was surprised when he found out how far we drove to have dinner here
After all of that we followed up with a couple desserts and from walking in to Panko chan to finishing the last bite of dessert we had nothing but the best time
I highly recommend trying Panko Chan if you haven't already and can't wait to come back again!

They were amazing with catering to x2 celiacs in our small group of 5. Separate fryer is used and menu has GF and GFF meals.
Miss 7 did not eat her fish as she expected white fish but got salmon. While we thought salmon was great for her, she doesn’t like it. It would have been nice to have been told salmon was the kids fish so that we could have ordered something else. Miss 7 ended up with just hot chips. Overall we would preference going back here over headed out for general fish n chips.

Very friendly & efficient service. Tapas style for sharing which is great but a little tricky when all the hot dishes come at once. The servings are generous & good value. The tofu with mushrooms was exceptional. The tempura veg was not what we expected (grated veg, not whole veg), so a bit more fried than we would have liked. Salads good & fresh. We ate vegetarian so can’t comment on the meat / seafood dishes. They do close relatively early (9.30pm on a Sat night), so we went around the corner to Robbie Browns bar afterwards for a very pleasant cup of tea. The Panko Chan staff really are lovely & do their best to please, & the food overall is good Japanese fare.

The freshest ingredients are used in all of the dishes.
Tapas with a Japanese flair so delicious you just want to order them in sequence.
Fish and chips ascend to a whole new level with the mixed sweet potato, lotus and potato chips.
Love this place.

The only things wrong were with the chips: one of our party ordered potato chips only and they took about 5 minutes to arrive after the main meal. Another of our party had ordered sweet potato and lotus root chips only; these did not arrive until somewhat later as potato and lotus root chips were cooked in error firstly, then the chef(s) realised the mistake and had to re-cook the order. Otherwise, everything was excellent. We'll go back!

Superbly fresh fish with nice crumb & batter options. The Tuna poke bowl was the stand out for me , so clean, fresh and filling also with a nice citrus dressing and fresh wasabi ....looking forward to returning again soon.
