We called in for food mid-week based on the recommendation from a friend, and we loved it. The staff were very friendly, yet relaxed. Drinks and food orders were taken promptly and we all felt really comfortable there. All our meals were brought out really quicky, which were very delicious. I will definitely be going back again.

Had another great meal at Chilli Banana, Lark Lane on Sunday evening to celebrate Father's Day. Staff, especially Sani are lovely, food is tasty, great portion sizes and a brilliant choice of vegetarian dishes. Desserts are fab too. Nice atmosphere, clean and tidy restaurant, definitely recommended.

Menu had excellent choices an even it's own section dedicated to vegetarian and gluten free meals. Starters arrived quickly, as did the mains once the... More

Recently had an evening meal here and the food is reasonably good and the staff helpful and efficient however we were rushed and even though it was a weekday evening they were very keen to get us fed and out so the table could be available for other diners. So reasonably good food, fast service but not for a relaxed... More

Bones in the spring rolls, unattentive servers, horrible mains which would have been of a higher standard if we'd gone to Buffet Star. Never ever again.

Dear Ellen I was sorry to learn of your unsatisfactory visit to our restaurant recently. I was most concerned that the high levels of authentic, award winning cuisine and service that we are known for were not afforded to you on this visit. I would welcome the opportunity to put that right. Please contact me directly at liverpool@chillibanana.co.uk . Yours... More

Dear Johnny There’s could be several ways that some people might want to change Thai food to suit their western palates, but then it wouldn’t be authentic regional Thai food would it?. We cook it like they cook it. It’s the real deal, the way our customers like it, and we’re very proud of that. Yours sincerely Michael McGarvey More

Walked in late-ish Friday night and got a table for two easily. The male waiters were very friendly and helpful, but the female waiters dumped our dishes on the table and didn't seem very interested. When I asked what an "Iced Thai Coffee" and "Iced Thai Tea" were, she just shrugged at me and said an iced drink. We ordered... More

We went back recently to find a better restaurant all round. However, I really do think the menu is far too crowded. Perhaps it would benefit from a revamp? We will be going back again in the near future...and recommend this Restaurant to all.
