    The best Beef Massaman curry I've ever tasted (and I've sampled many!) The sea bass was also excellent. Excellent, efficient and friendly service and better portion sizes than at the Wilmslow branch where we found portions on the small side to be honest. We look forward to ordering a take away during lockdown

    Excellent dining experience. The restaurant was well laid out for social distancing, all of the staff wore masks and the diners were respectful of requirements. Very happy with the evening. Food was fabulous and we will definitely be going back.

    The Chilli Banana is our favourite restaurant. We have been very regular customers for many years!! The food is very good, well served and the menu is excellent. The staff are always very welcoming and pleasant and we have considered them as our great friends for years. GREAT PLACE TO VISIT!!!

    Tapas Menu. We enjoyed the evening immensely. The area was not particularly warm but we were prepared for that as I knew the restaurant layout. The staff were very attentive and friendly despite us being downstairs from the main restaurant and the only party in the Silk Lounge. Altogether we tried 6 dishes. As usual the food was lovely but due to this being a new tapas venture we do have the following observations: Duck rolls - very tasty but we would not have ordered these had the menu stated they were served cold. Chicken skewers - again tasty and hot as always but hard to split 3 skewers between 2. I know it will not always be parties of 2 but maybe the way some of the dishes are presented for tapas should be different than as a starter. Cat fish - my favourite as always. Chicken wings - very tasty and crispy. Sweet potato fries- lovely. The restaurant was very Covid aware and as such all precautions were in place. We would definitely return either for tapas or to the main restaurant.
