There was a good choice of meals on the menu. The Massaman and Penang curries were excellent, as good as any in Thailand. Staff and service was spot on. Unfortunately, £3.50 for a bottle of Singha beer was more than I would have expected.

I visited the Chilli Banana with my boyfriend and our friends one Saturday evening before heading on to lark lane for a few drinks. We had a really enjoyable time! The menu was extensive and there was lots of variety - for this reason alone I will be coming back! All the meals we ordered were really delicious with the... More

Another one of our favourite restaurants in Lodge Lane. We have been here for lunch and also in the evening and have never been disappointed. If you are looking for good value Thai food in Liverpool then this is the place to visit.

Food here is really good. Although the portions may seem small, they will leave you feeling like you've had just enough. The green curry is really good, the taste isn't too strong whilst they add a generous amount of bamboo shoots. Their thai fish cake is the best i've tasted outside of Thailand. It can get quite busy and parking... More

"The Best Thai fish cake outside of Thailand" Thank you Thomas! As a seasoned traveller to Thailand it's great to hear from some one who really knows authentic Thai food More parking is usually available along the right hand side of Siddley Street which our restaurant also runs down the side of and is not utilised by our lovely neighbours...

This restaurant is amazing. Their vegetarian mixed starter was so good and I'm not even a veggie. Garlic and black pepper king prawns were so good. Massaman curry was delicious. I've been dreaming of it for a week since. Can't wait to go back!

Great food and good atmosphere. We have visited a number of times now and the quality remains of a good standard, its usually nice and busy in a area of good atmosphere if you want to carry on for a few drinks later, try the Massaman curry, very tasty.

Had an excellent meal. The sea bass with ginger was out of this world. I was also lucky enough to try the scallops. Wow!! The wine list is excellent. The strawberry prosecco cocktail was a nice way to start the evening. Staff are welcoming and the venue itself is really nice. It was a wonderful evening and highly recommend.

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.
