Nipped in with student daughter and friends after a long drive to take her back to uni, and found this great little Thai restaurant. Chefs were cooking in full view of the cosy cafe and the service was so friendly and quick. We bought our own wine bottle (£3 corkage) but you could buy alcohol there. Green Thai prawn curry... More

We had arranged to visit a different restaurant in the area but as it was closed, we opted to try Thai Banana for the 1st time. It's quite a cosy, little restuarant / cafe in a popular area of Fallowfield. It was quiet when we arrived, only 2 or 3 other tables were taken. Despite the waitress forgetting my tea,... More

Great food and the relaxed atmosphere, BUT.... Don't sit at the table opposite the door, it's FREEEEZING.... Dining with your hat and coat on isn't the best! Anyhow..... Will defo visit again.

Fantastic value for money, especially the buffet they hold, it was on a Friday and Sunday last time I went and they served a great selection of currys and stir frys with all different meats as well as salads and various starters, really good value for money and the staff are lovely. A firm favourite.

Ive been here countless times - they offer a good lunch menu (smaller portions) and al la carte menu. I've never tried the buffet because from my experience buffet's never have as hot/fresh/good food. I've never had a bad meal here. The thai currys in particular are amazing! Wouldn't recommend the japanese dishes, but stick to thai and you wont... More

When we have fed up of eating KFC & Nandos with our LO then we always like to go to Thai banana because it serve good food and its a informal place so we can take our 3 years old too. He loves fish tempura and prawn tempura and we can have same time spicy curry stuff. It's been now... More

It's been a few years since I was last here and I'm pleased to say that the food is as good as it ever was. The buffet was on offer but I'm fairly conservative in my Thai tastes so went for the tourists favourite of Tom Yum soup and a Green curry with coconut rice. All was excellent - good... More

Normally buzzing and full to the brim, because the students had all just left Manchester at the end of term it was a quiet night when we ate there. Very good Thai food, big helpings, friendly staff. Neither cheap nor expensive. I must say I was surprised and pleased how reasonable my bottle of good Chilean red was! Would eat... More
