“But is it Thai?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

My wife and I went there for a birthday meal a few weeks ago. The service and food were excellent and staff very attentive. It just seems to have lost some of its character since moving from the other side of town. If this is your first visit and you never went to the "old" one you will have a lovely meal and never know the difference.

“A spicy night out in Wilmslow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This Thai restaurant is almost at the centre of Wilmslow. It's situated on a corner next to a Shell petrol station. It is a modern establishment. Being in busy small town centre parking is a bit tricky possibly requiring a couple of trips round the block. The restaurant has a modern feel with a ground floor and first floor dining area. The large glass frontage only lacks a sea view! We went on a Friday night with friends who used to live in Thailand. The service was cheerful and prompt. The menu has several pages of options including set banquets. We had 3 courses and with drinks the bill was roughly £30 each. The food was good. The ‘experts’ said it was as authentic as its possible to be without local sweet basil! The red and green curries were both tasty. The sea bass was nicely steamed. There was a good choice of fried, fragrant or sticky rice. The deserts lived up to the restaurant name with three options being banana and one with a chili sauce! The atmosphere was convivial. We were not rushed. The whole dining experience was very good. We will certainly go back.

“Enjoyable first visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

We have lived in the Wilmslow area for many years now but this was our first visit to the Chilli Banana and having sampled the food I now realise that we have been missing out!
We only just managed to book a table for a Friday evening 6.45 slot and on arrival we received great service throughout. The restaurant was full to capacity and plenty of diners sat at the bar waiting for tables. The atmosphere on the night was electric but the staff remained calm, attentive and friendly at all times.
We choose many dishes which were absolutely scrumptious, but I have to be honest and say
that I wasn't to keen on the fish cakes, found them rather chewy, not sure what I expected.
Looking forward to another visit very soon.
