I love this place - take a good bottle of wine and enjoy the amazing food. I know what people are saying about the service but its never unfriendly - just slow. The jerk chicken salad is incredible.

guanabana used to be a delightful restaurant with character and soul. the food is still good but the service, although polite, is extremely slow and clumsy. we waited 45 minutes just for our drinks.

it is a byob but drinking there is still pricey. we took our own vodka and rum to add to the alcohol free cocktails as we had done before. the difference now is that the lame jug of juice is now half tge size and double the price. 12 pounds for a mixer.

it's a shame, used to be great fun and value. think it has changed hands.

boooooooo!

Came to Guanabana on a staff Christmas do. Service was painfully slow (arrived at 6pm, got starter at 9.15pm!)
Staff were friendly and attentive, but the food that was served was very poor.
I had a steak, which was like eating a rubber boot.
I am not trying to be a food snob, but I think a child cook have cooked it better.
Shame - could be a nice place if they improved

I have been here several times from a quick business lunch to an intimate dinner.. Often busy but unusually accommodating - staff always make an effort to welcome you. It's a family business who have a long tradition of running interesting great value restaurants (like Cafe Bintang a few doors up).

The food is authentic, well prepared and well presented - a excellent fusion from the interesting twist of the lunch-time burgers to the more exotic evening fare.

In the summer, the outdoor seating very refreshing with Shisha available.

Always extraordinary value!
