Excellent Service

We received excellent customer service from our waitress, she was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks menu, and was able to recommend. Also very sociable and friendly :) Food was very enjoyable, good sized portions, hot and all served together. A nice place to eat.

I have visited Chilli Banana several times now and each time is gets better! The staff are fabulous - especially when we take our toddler in, they go out of their way to engage with him and make sure we can enjoy our meal. The food is excellent - I was a little disappointed some of my favourites seem to... More

This I'm sure has had many good reviews. This restaurant is a jewel on lark lane. Both of us had the lunch menu. 4 mini appetisers and two mains all for just under £12 each. The food is delicious, the staff are lovely and the ambiance is great. I definitely feel happily full and sedated.

The food was excellent! Very tasty! However, I have mixed opinions about the staff. Some were fantastic but others lacked enthusiasm and were not very friendly. Shame because I felt this had an impact on the atmosphere.

Excellent Thai food as always. Food was hot, beautifully presented and made with high-quality ingredients. Service was very good . We have been to this restaurant many times as a couple or in a small group and always enjoyed high-quality food and good service but this was maintained last night for our table of 9 diners. Great value for money... More

Went to this restaurant quite a few years ago and it was absolutely dreadful, the food was awful and really expensive and I vowed never to return. Through unavoidable circumstances I ended up eating here again last weekend and the contrast was huge. The dishes ordered were greeted with universally excellent comments and the service was very good. It is... More

Dear Mike D, Thank you for your fabulous four stars . I'm not sure why Chilli Banana Liverpool wasn't busy when you dined with us, perhaps you came in on an unusually quiet evening.
