I came with a group of 11 for a birthday party. If you love Thai food, this is where you should go to. The restaurant was very busy for the usually quiet January. Not surprising at all. The food was superb, the service was excellent. The ambience was just perfect. Definitely would go back soon. Thank you Chilli Banana for... More

Went here with my girlfriend. I had the Thai green curry with sticky rice and my girlfriend had to duck and fried noodles. My Thai green curry was superb and took em back to my times in Thailand.

We went on a Saturday night and the service was awful we had to ask for drinks and then to order after waiting over 20min. I have to say though the food was amazing and I finished my meal with a Calypso which had a very generous amount of tia Maria in it 😊

Great food and attentive service all the right ingredients for a good meal out. There was 4 adults and1 31/2year old grandson,so diverse requirements and everyone was catered for. Things like our grandsons noodles were served without sauce and one of the party didn't want a main course was easily accommodated.
