“Superb little Thai cafe”
Review of thai banana - CLOSED

Nipped in with student daughter and friends after a long drive to take her back to uni, and found this great little Thai restaurant. Chefs were cooking in full view of the cosy cafe and the service was so friendly and quick. We bought our own wine bottle (£3 corkage) but you could buy alcohol there. Green Thai prawn curry & springrolls really good. Used Tastecard for a bargain spicy meal.

We had arranged to visit a different restaurant in the area but as it was closed, we opted to try Thai Banana for the 1st time. It's quite a cosy, little restuarant / cafe in a popular area of Fallowfield. It was quiet when we arrived, only 2 or 3 other tables were taken. Despite the waitress forgetting my tea, she was very attentive and friendly even helping to sort out my parking issues. The food itself was excellent. We both opted for soup and pad thai prawn. The soup was authentic and seasoned perfectly. The pad thai was simply the best pad thai I've had in Manchester. The prawns were very fresh and cooked to perfection. Fantastic value for money overall and we will be back.

Great food and the relaxed atmosphere, BUT.... Don't sit at the table opposite the door, it's FREEEEZING.... Dining with your hat and coat on isn't the best!
Anyhow..... Will defo visit again.

Fantastic value for money, especially the buffet they hold, it was on a Friday and Sunday last time I went and they served a great selection of currys and stir frys with all different meats as well as salads and various starters, really good value for money and the staff are lovely. A firm favourite.
