We used to be regulars here,however after a few very bad experiences we won't be back. Tried to call the branch for 40mins to order. In the end we visited the branch to order, the guy we ordered from was very rude. We complained that no one answered the phone, no apology. When we paid his manor was just so... More

It's not easy getting a table in the Banana Tree if you haven't been organised enough to book in advance. That tells you something: it's well thought of. And having had dinner there I fully understand why. There's a great choice of food (both meat and veggie) and the spicy aubergine dish I haf was tasty and incredibly good value.... More

I've eaten at this restaurant many time and if you dine in you will get very fresh lovely south East Asian flavours. The meet always used to be cooked perfectly. Had my first take away experience and it wasn't great. The chicken was way way to try, the pork was tough and the beef rendang was the size of a... More

We went here for a last minute Valentine's Day visit. As it was seemingly busy and a nice energy, we thought great let's check! That's where the excitement stopped. When we were seated by our waitress, we were then ignored for 15 minutes. As we kept trying to catch the attention or call for assistance, we just kept getting ignored.... More

Every time we have eaten in here, we have left with full bellies! The Beef rendang is legendary and the dumpling starters are the best. If you want a good, relatively healthy feed this is the place.

Great food and lovely place however when we paid our bill in cash, no one brought us any change despite that we left more cash than the bill. We would probably have left change anyway but it felt presumptuous and cheeky not to offer it back. C'mon guys. It's just a courtesy. Even when we commented that we hadn't had... More

This restaurant has plenty to choose from. I've eaten here more times than I can count and the food has never disappointed. They do a great lunchtime menu which is available Monday - Friday until 7pm where you can get a starter and a main for a tenner. The prawn pad thai is not to be missed!

Authentic fresh Asian food, my favourite dish is the Tilapia fish dish which is tasty and melts in your mouth and the Jasmine Tea is the best Jasmine tea i have ever tasted, it comes in an extremely heavy cast iron teapot and lasts for the whole meal and stays hot .. delicious!
