We first visited Chilli Banana about nine years ago and we were very impressed. They have certainly maintained their high standards. This time we had tempura vegetables to start - an amazing starter full of flavour and a generous portion of vegetables (including broccoli, sweet...More

Superb Thai food. The restaurant was very inviting with polite and friendly staff, especially Jack, our waiter. We would recommend and definitely return here. The sharing platter for starters followed by the red thai curry was the best ever

Wonderfully fresh, tasty Thai food. A good variety of meal choices. More pricey than Thai food in Australia, but reasonable for the UK, and definitely the best we've had here. Staff also very helpful, friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this place to eat.

Good restaurant. Staff helpful & friendly. We were given a table even though we hadn't booked. Food was very good too. Reasonably priced & on the bus route so easy to get to. Well worth a visit, advisable to book especially at weekend.

Nothing special about this place but on the same note it wasn't bad. Pad Thai was a very small potion but tasty and my wife beef and broccoli was very salty. Had better Thai meals but definitely better than the food they served in the...More

I don't know whether they serve chips but I think it would be unusual if they didn't. Their website doesn't mention a children's menu. The quickest way to get an answer would be to ring them.
