article imageNew Panarottis opened in Wilkoppies, Klerksdorp Sunday Special

Klerksdorp - After months of anticipation, the people of Klerksdorp who have been eyeing the new Panarottis in Wilkoppies, patiently waiting for it to open, are finally getting the chance to patronize this restaurant since 10am this morning.
We just so happened to be around the area and thought we would take part in the restaurant's first day.
Upon our arrival in the early evening, a herd of about 30 waiters were standing outside in uniform, all but blocking the door. Not sure why they were standing there because it looks like a strike, but we assumed as it's the first day they didn't want to have any shortage of servers in the event of huge crowds of patrons storming the place. Or maybe everybody had to be there to see the opening and learn the ropes. They might have moved them away from the door though.
The first thing that hits you upon entering the restaurant is a faint smell of wood glue, as all the furniture and shop fitting is brand new. The layout is beautiful, and the decor and stylizations are brand new, neat and clean. The restaurant looks spacious and has a good atmosphere. Nice colors too.
There was a restroom door handle that was in the process of coming off, and we did see one of the lights that should be fitted high up in the ceiling, seemed to be falling out of its round hole in the ceiling. Hopefully they'll tend to that soon.
We tried the restrooms and one problem was that the toilet seat and lid kept falling over and shut. If you wanted to use the toilet you had to make a plan to keep the toilet open with one of your free limbs or you might make a mess. Definitely needs replacing.
The restaurant was not overcrowded, but it had enough people to be busy.
Our waiter was excellent, a young black man fluent in proper Afrikaans. Most definitely a plus.
The food did not take long at all, and it was of excellent quality and most delicious. The food gets a ten out of ten.
Once finished, we made our way out the door again through the troops of waiters wishing us a good bye.
To try the place out for yourself, Panarottis is located just across the Bear Creek Spur, and next to John Dory's.
