Japanese inspired Seafood, Fish and Chippy by day, Japas by Night.

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.

Panko Chan has THE most delicious fish dishes and chips I've had. Octopus balls, calamari, fish of the day, endamame, those great chip varieties. All cooked to perfection, served in lovely baskets...wonderful. And without exception the service has been friendly and helpful.

Panko is great for a quick lunch or more substantial dinner. Service and meal prices are more than fair, decor and ambience great. Highly recommended!!

Best fish and chips ever! I chose the goy and ginger crusted tempura, and the mix of 3 types of chips. All cooked to perfection, and absolutely delicious. My partner was equally pleased with his salmon poke bowl, and the generous size of his glass of wine.

Food is great, good value, service is pretty good. Unfortunately lots of flies and they really need a blind in the window as of an afternoon/evening the sun coming in will bake you and turn you into a sweaty, uncomfortable mess.

Such a great place for a lovely lunch or dinner. The lunch time ramen is always a favorite, however the tapas style dinner menu is superb-even for vegans! Add delicious Japanese tap beer and great service and this place has it all.

whilst the menu is the same, the taste and quality of the food since the new owners have taken over is not the same. Disappointing.

Really disappointed. We were jammed in between two other tables and there were others free in the restaurant.
We had two waitresses tell us the specials, straight after each other, really rushed.
Then we were made feel like we had to order, asked if I could get the premium fish flathead grilled. Was told this was not possible. I am gluten free. Then was made feel like I was a pain.
I ended up ordering calamari, which was only GFF.
We did not get any sides and it was not explained that sides of chips did not come with the fish (ordered by two others at our table).
Went to order some extras, but was told there was no potato salad.
It was just really disappointed. Waste of our time and money.
Service couldn’t of been worse.

Slick setting, very funky and well thought out setup. Service was warm, friendly and very attentive. A great spot for kids, with meals suited for fussy and special dietary requirements. Sumptuous seafood dishes and tempura veges were a treat! Panko thank you
