Such great food! Went with a few friends for my Birthday recently. I had previously been to the one in Watford which has now closed and was a little disappointed in the size difference of the two. West Hampstead is very small but the staff were really lovely and very helpful and accommodating! I wouldnt suggest it as a place... More

Average to good food, the dumplings were ok and my beef rendang was good. My girlfriend had a noodle dish was was very average at best. The food didn't pack the punch that good quality Thai restaurants do which was a shame. Although it wasn't terrible, I have had worse. The service was quite poor to the point of having... More

It's not often a year after you've dined out that you still fondly remember your server. Martin, you're a testament to excellent service; knowledgeable, observant, interesting and fun. Our experience at Banana Tree would definitely not have been the same without you. Thank you so much and best of luck for the future.

I ordered the 2 course lunch deal. Had dumplings as starter. 4 dumplings were served, bathed in a bowl of very salty soy sauce mixture. It didn't look appealing & the dumplings were not visible till you dug it out of the bowl. I ordered the Banana Tree Laksa for my mains. That was good & as it was a... More

Despite having a winning economic success over the years, this ever expanding chain loses it's charm, substance, quality of service (and food) and value for money. Great if you want a quick, below average, taste of the East, otherwise your money is best spent elsewhere. If you do choose to eat here, avoid the chicken. It's the pumped with water... More

Love Banana Tree, it never fails to deliver a big plate of delicious food fro such a reasonable price. Atmosphere is lovely even though i'm not hugley keen on the decor but that is a minor/personal point. I would recommend this place if your meeting a mate and you want a quick, easy, affordable and satisfying meal. Also the staff... More

Good mix of various Asian cuisines- Malaysian, Indonesian, etc. I used to live in Singapore for many years so know the food well. Food is good, not exceptional, just good. I do get withdrawal symptoms of Laksa and Indonesian cuisine so this is a good fix. Decor is average and the place is relatively small. It's not an expensive place... More

The food at Banana Tree is interesting and delicious. I do have an issue with the small portion sizes given the price of the dishes. The service is quite slow too and they did not bring drinks at the same time. I love the salad bowls, they are better value than a lot of the menu and has a bit... More
