Went to banana tree in West Hampstead on a Saturday evening with friends. The menu was nice but nothing special and the service was good. The food was again quite nice, nothing to rave about.

Had an amazing meal here last week. I ordered the duck as my main and it was superb. Really well cooked and good plentiful. There is a buzzy atmosphere and the service is also very good. Will come back again

Loved the food and the service was quick and on the mark. There aren't all that many places to have a good Laksa or Rendang till late at night, now you know where to go :-)

I often miss Indonesian food when travelling but this hits the spot every time. Yummy and a half. Friendly staff and the right flavours to quench and yearning.

I went for dinner with some friends on a fairly busy night. I ordered a main and requested to exclude one ingredient. Another waitress served the food and once she came to our table I could see that they'd added the ingredient and I told them that I had ordered without as I am allergic. The girl apologised and went... More

Service awful- no one really cared you were there. Over busy, under staffed. Zero smiles. Food - rubbery cold and tasteless.

Such great food! Went with a few friends for my Birthday recently. I had previously been to the one in Watford which has now closed and was a little disappointed in the size difference of the two.
