“Yum modern Vietnamese”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Great Vietnamese with a modern twist. Very clean and kind of expensive but it's quite a nice experience coming here!

“Great dinner except for the noise”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner there last night and selected the banquet menu for $45 each. Lovely dishes and good value. The service was slow at first then all fine. Good advice on the wine. Only issue was the noise however we got used to it.

“Good tucker in any language”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We have been to Banana Palm a few times. Other reviews call it Asian Fusion ..... I call it 'good tucker'. Service was exemplary and the food tasty - all at a very reasonable price.

The last time we were there it was a bit noisy but there were a few big parties, just before Christmas.

The tables are well spaced apart and we could enjoy the company of our group - something not possible in many restaurants around the City.

Banana Palm is now our Restaurant of choice when dining in the Coogee area.

“Upscale Vietnamese Fusion”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Dined here while on business in Sydney. Stayed at Crown Plaza Coogee Beach, which was a very short walk (less than 100 yards) from the hotel. Great fresh crab dishes, and large shrimp (prawns to those down under) in several dishes. Large variety of cocktails. Some curried lamb dish was also tasty. One of my associates ordered some sort of melon creme dessert, which was surprisingly refreshing. Somewhat expensive, but most food in Sydney is compared to USA. Service not as prompt as in USA, but then again tipping not the norm in Australia.
