“Worst Thai place ever!!”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Food is really bad. Stale, cold and tasteless.

They encouraged us to get the buffet and now I know why. It tasted like reheated food from the previous day!!

Avoid like the plague.

“Fresh, authentic Thai food.”
Reviewed April 20, 2009

My friends and I regularly eat at the Thai Banana when we're in Manchester. We usually have an early dinner, and haven't had to book tables in advance yet, though the place can slowly fill up in the evenings. The interior decor is a bit hit and miss - what does a big picture of Marilyn Monroe have to do with Thai food? But don't let that put you off, as the food is very good. I haven't tried their buffet yet though that looks like good value for money; I usually order something from the menu instead.

I'm originally from South East Asia, and this is one of the better Thai restaurants I've tried in the UK so far. The dishes are cooked without MSG, and are very tasty. They are pretty on the plate, some with cleverly carved vegetable roses or flowers. Some Thai restaurants here tend to turn out much more average fare, whereas the food at the Thai Banana stands out to me for its fresh, authentic flavours. Thai food should be fresh and clean - you will be able to taste all the separate ingredients in the dishes here, as they combine to deliver each delicious mouthful. Also, there is a proper range of different options on the menu. Treat yourself to some sticky rice, which will come in a little plastic bag (to keep the moisture in the rice while you are still eating), within its own bamboo steamer basket. Some other British Thai restaurants I've eaten in don't offer choices like sticky rice. There are also some good vegetarian options as well, with tofu. And if you'd prefer a meal at home or in your hotel, you can order a takeaway meal from the restaurant too.
