I've had a fair few sandwiches in my time. Probably too many. But, I can honestly say, without too much deliberation, that Chilli Banana offer some of the finest. Consistently incredible. Cannot recommend enough.

Nice little Sandwich bar, with a variety of sandwiches named after movies with fillings to match, nice touch and tastes good but for the prices they charge the fillings lacked a little. We sat inside which only had about 5 tables in a tight setting so had to wait a while, next door is a takeout entrance. Daily specials always... More

Hi Charlie Thanks for taking the time to write a review on TA. We have a double fronted shop and seating for 42 people, so we believe you may have only had a chance to see a small part of Chilli B. We are alway complimented on the quality and quantity of our fillings so we are really saddened to... More

Yes its got coolnames for wraps and sandwiches but nothing out of this world. I sensed moody staff members from comments heard from kitchen and a lot of flies. Toilet small. No baby change and no great for mummies

I have been here a handful of times and it is just lovely, leaves me wanting more even though I probably couldn't eat another thing!

Enough has already been said about Chilli B's but the Feastful Of Dollars is always excellent and one of my favourites. In a nutshell, extremely competent staff that know exactly what they are doing, prompt service with a smile, very professional and excellent food. What more do you need to know? Rightfully deserves its number one place. A credit to... More

We have been using the takeaway service here for a few years now and have never had a bad meal. More recently we have eaten in the cafe part next door and the service here was excellent. It's such a pleasant change to have a decent full English served for a reasonable price. Keep up the great work chilli b.

Chilli B's is hands down my favourite place to get lunch. Every time I've visited we've been welcomed by the staff and the owners, who are always around having a very hands on roll which is lovely to see!
