Fresh and funky, Banana Tree - Soho presents regional specialities from the Indochina region. Crafting their authentic flavours since 1991, Banana Tree places special focus on the lemongrass-growing areas in South East Asia, including Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Cambodia. Delicious Pan-Asian noodles, soups, curries and temptingly sweet desserts can be found on the Banana Tree menu. Traditional yet cosmopolitan, Banana Tree restaurant is a failsafe favourite for vibrant Asian delicacies.
