I had initially left a bad review because of the lack of service me and my girlfriend had recieved. However, as soon as I wrote this review they were immediately contacting me and apologizing. I do understand that everyone has an off night and after reading all of the reviews I've found for them, Im sure that they will give me a great chance to see how accomodating they can be. I'll update this soon.
I recently went back to Pangea after being there many times. I had a wonderful experience as always. They have changed their menu since I had been there last, which I was worried about at first. But after I opened the menu, I saw that they had many indian dishes and they also have a lot of selection for a variety of food. Some of my friends who love italian food found some pasta they simply adored. The decor like people have mentioned is beautiful, inside and outside. The staff is very friendly. The food, drinks, and desserts are delicious. Its one of my favorite places to go in the poconos. Its a shame a lot of people dont like to try new places!
Been there 3 times and once they didn't have what I ordered. But in general, great food, zen-like atomosphere, courteous staff and prices are moderate.
All types of food, something for everyone, but the Indian chickpea dish didn't quite measure up to Tandoor Palace's. However, best minestrone I've ever had.
Try it, it's an interesting alternative to 'the same old thing.'
For those of you who are vegetarian or vegan, this is the best restaurant in the area. They have pure vegetarian soups - the mango soup is really good.
They have a variety of dosas, a South Indian rice and lentil crepe. With a mix of North Indian and South Indian dishes, there is a lot to choose from.
This is a wonderful place for a delicious, relaxing meal. Not only is the Asian-fusion food fantastic, but the setting is lovely. There is a huge window that looks out to a Japanese-style garden with a running waterfall cascading down as you savor every bite! Definitely a cut above the other choices for dining in the Poconos. Give it a try!
I went to Pangea when I was visiting family for the holidays. This place belongs in nyc! Its an amazing find in the poconos. Its a trendy restaurant with a lot of great variety on the menu. It has a lot of indian dishes but there are so many choices for other types of food as well. I was surprised. The food was a wonderful blend of spices. Not too spicy, simply flavorful! Its close to the crossings shopping center, a great place to stop by after you've shopped for a wonderful meal to end the day. The waitstaff was super friendly. I will definetely spread the word to my friends and family to go to Pangea!
Pros: Great atomosphere, wonderful food, friendly staff!
This restaurant is a must if you like Indian food. The food is authentic and service were outstanding! I would love to go back whenever I can. They have an extensive indian menu, but they also carry other types of foods as well, like italian and american. The decor was beautiful. Its a great place for all occasions!
Pros: Authtentic Food, Great Friendly Service, Easy to find
Cons: Can be busy around the holidays
We happened to be dining in Pangea this weekend and I have to say the food was amazingly flawless. The appetizers - crispy crunchy-sweet onion pakoras and the gently-spiced fresh samosas were so tasty that I could have made a meal out of them alone! I am a vegetarian, so the menu was abundant with choices (not a usual occurrence in most eating places!). After a lot of thought, I ordered a spring dosa and my companions ordered the paneer-stuffed dosa, and the chole puri, all promising to share so that everyone could have a taste. Our dishes arrived piping hot and savory and we began eating. I enjoyed the generous filling of potato, cabbage, cauliflowers, each mouthful full of the taste of fresh vegetables mingled with spices and before I knew it there was nothing left on my plate! Needless to say, the others had polished off theirs too. Admittedly, we were all ravenous but there was no doubt that when delicious food appears before one it can vanish before you say abracadabra. I skipped the dessert (too full) but had a couple of forkfuls of the raspberry cheesecake from the plate of one of my companions - it was rich, dense with flavor but not overpoweringly sweet (one of my pet peeves about cheesecake) and I regretted stuffing on the dosa.
The service was very good, friendly and ready to answer all questions, inspite of their obviously busy schedule. I liked the decor too - understated elegance - and the music was clearly popular, judging by the amount of people on the dance floor. All in all, a classic meal in a classic setting and singularly different from the usual dining spots in the Poconos which tend to lean heavily towards meat and starch. I left promising myself that I would definitely be back.
Pros: Plenty of parking. Just off Route 611, easy to find.
Cons: The lights could have been brighter.
I am visiting from California and have been round the world and eaten many types of restaurants. My experience at Pangea will be cherished for years to come. I enjoyed the wide variety of Indo-Chinese, Indian, Italian, and American dishes. I visited the restaurant on two occasions. The staff is very friendly and the owner has a nice sense of humor which makes you feel at ease. The atmosphere is cool and soothing. In short, Pangea has everything to great time.I will make it a point to visit the restaurant on my next visit to the Pocanose.
Pangea: "Something for Everyone." I've vacationd in the Pocono area for the last 15 years, and I've never had such consistently pleasing and diverse meals. I've returned with friends and family for both lunch and dinner within the same day! The restaurant used to be "Anthony's," but the new owners since Feb. 2006 completely turned it around with a chic NYC style decor (waterfalls, flatscreen tv, light panels that change color), world music, friendly service, and tastes unmatched anywhere in the Poconos. They've got a reputation for unique plate presentations during lunch and dinner, creative cocktails, and attentive service -- the new owners are always available and greeting people. Whether you're looking for a bar with exotic drinks/desserts, a romantic dinner for two, or down-to-earth family dining, this is place never fails to be the favorite for the pickiest of eaters.
Pros: Quality, preparation, variety, and creativity of meals is well worth slightly higher prices. Friendly new owners go out of their ways to ensure superior service
Cons: If you're looking for a run-of-the mill diner, Pangea is not the place for you. Also Poconos' best kept secret - not widely known since it's recently opened
First of all, Pangea is UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP and the new owners are great! I have been to Pangea for lunch and dinner and the menu is outstanding! It is so hard to choose from all the great choices. Also, if you go with your vegetarian sister, your meat-loving dad, or the picky eater in your family, there is sure to be something that appeals to everyone. With so many choices and categories on the menu, the longest part of your meal will be choosing what to order!! The service was friendly and quick, even though I went during the holiday season, and the new owners have really made the place a success. If you're in town for a business meeting, the lunch menu is very reasonably priced, with an exotic selection of sandwich and wrap platters. Great for a romantic dinner too, with a lovely, serene mood, and awesome cocktails. Hope you try this new place and like it as much as I did!
Pros: Ambience, mood, great drinks menu, classy food
Cons: Go on the weekend for a great atmosphere, during the week can be quiet.
Anytime our family is in the area on vacation, we absolutely include Anthony's in our schedule. The food is fresh, seasoned great, portions to fill, and the service is excellent. If you haven't been there you must and with an appetite.
Pros: Great Food
Cons: Can be busy.
