“Bland and uninspiring”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

Went to the Chilli Banana for lunch with colleagues and had their lunchtime express menu which appeared to be good value but the word 'express' turned out to mean 'quite slow' and the food when it came was uninteresting and uninspired. I had a Thai green curry but it just didn't taste of much. The prawn spring rolls we also had were ok, but again not tasty or flavoursome. I wouldn't rush back. It is a large barn of a restaurant which lacks atmosphere and if the food isn't great then really why would you?

“Fabulous food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

We had a fabulous meal here with friends. Food was excellent quality and the service was fantastic. The atmosphere was great as the restaurant filled up. Food was not cheap but for the quality we thought it was a fair price. We would definately recommend.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

I iked the food the sticky rice and green curry were the best i have ever had!! However for 4 dishes and two beers the bill came to £40- a bit too much i think! I will try the otherThai plcaes in the area before coming back.
