Pan-Asian | Brentwood, Brentwood

Booked a table for seven people online. Arrived at the given time and was shown to our table straight away. Asked what we wanted to drink, which came promptly. We chose a few sides, which we had as starters, as well as Prawn Crackers with a sweet chilly dip. Lovely. All mains came up one after the other. ( as everything is freshly cooked ) service was great, but food was exceptional. Been here a few times and will carry on coming back. More
