“Authentic Thai close to Dublin Skylon Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Just across the road from the Dublin Skylon hotel is a parade of shops one of which is a Thai restaurant called Chilli Banana. We ate there one early evening and found the experience quite pleasant, the place and its decor has the appearance of a modern coffee bar but the service was quick and polite and the food that we had was indeed very authentic, well prepared and very tasty.

“Worth a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Lovely food and staff....worth a visit if in the area! Went in without a booking and we were accommodated straight away (group of 7). Not too expensive and very flexible with menu as we had some dietary requirements!

“Chilli Ginger Stir Fry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Ive been here a good few times now and on my first visit I got the Tofu Chilli Ginger Stir Fry.... and it was soooo good that I get the same every time now. Even though at all other Thai places I usually get a Penang curry... and I've heard the penang curry is amazing at the Chilli Banana too but I cant risk it not being as tasty as the amazing stir fry!!!!
Has a good Early Bird menu... much better value for money!!!

“quality of the food not great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

When this restaurant opened first, the food was just great, however the last few times iIve been there, it's been disappointing. We ordered chicken, duck and fish, the fish didn't taste fresh, the chicken was dull, and the duck was so overcooked, that we really couldn't eat it. We were there at 7pm at the cross over from the early bird to the main evening menu. Maybe if we had gone later, the food would have been better.
