“Thai in French St Martin”
Review of Banana Cafe

Banana Cafe
Ranked #389 of 890 Restaurants in Guadeloupe
Cuisines: Thai
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant was just a few blocks from the beach in Marigot, right across from the police station. My french is not so good so we ordered what looked familiar. The owner/waitress was very friendly and let us know that the chef had come from London and was award-winning. The food was very good, and little pricey, but hey you're in St. martin. I went with my husband and two kids and we ordered the pad thai, the thai beef salad and the spring rolls, and it was enough to share. Everything was very good, the spring rolls were the raw type (which I didn't realize when I ordered them), which my kids didn't like, but they loved everything else. We went with friends whose kids had never had Thai food, and although nervous at first to try anything, they enjoyed their lunch as well. The service was great (we were the only people there), and we were in and out quickly since we had to get back to our cruise ship. I would recommend this restaurant to others, it was quaint and colourful, and you could tell they were trying hard to please their customers.

The restaurant I am reviewing is located in the heart of Marigot, St. Martin NOT Guadeloupe.
We wanted to try this place as we are always looking for Thai food that is as good as in Thailand. But, alas wrong again! A good signature dish is Phad Thai, so that's what we had. At 10 Euro a plate it was rather expensive, the portion was small and not much flavor. We were disappointed. Perhaps we would have fared better with some of the other Thai dishes, but we will never know as because of the Phad Thai we had we will not return. The service was fine, the waitress/owner was very pleasant. Perhaps the FOR SALE sign on the outside should have been a warning.
