We visited Banana Tree after a busy day in London and really enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious, very fresh and full of flavour. The menu gives you lots of choice and has very interesting options with some great combinations. Service was good enough, a little slow at times, but it was a busy Saturday evening so we were happy... More

Just had dinner here and the food was very nice. Very filling and tasty. I shared a starter of moneybags followed by Banana spicy noodles. Yum! The Australian waitress was so friendly and chatty. The other waitress also very good and attentive/helpful. Well done. Shame it was so empty in there but it was Good Friday.

I've been to Clapham branch couple of times already and never been disappointed. There's usually a queue in the evening but it's worth to wait. Definitely must try Laksa soup. Cocktails are delicious too. Staff friendly and helpful.

I came here with my brother after nearly 1 year. The food was good but it seemed better the last time. I ordered a stir fry noodle dish and it was nice but had no wow factor like I remembered. My brother ordered a duck curry and said his rice tasted stale but he enjoyed the main dish. A decent... More

My wife & I have driven past this place many times because we often visit the Wandsworth area for dinner. I ordered a laksa and it was ok, but not even close to authentic. It seemed like maybe the flavour had been toned/watered down. I've had laksa many times and I know a good one from a poor effort and... More

We used to be regulars here,however after a few very bad experiences we won't be back. Tried to call the branch for 40mins to order. In the end we visited the branch to order, the guy we ordered from was very rude. We complained that no one answered the phone, no apology. When we paid his manor was just so... More

It's not easy getting a table in the Banana Tree if you haven't been organised enough to book in advance. That tells you something: it's well thought of. And having had dinner there I fully understand why. There's a great choice of food (both meat and veggie) and the spicy aubergine dish I haf was tasty and incredibly good value.... More

I've eaten at this restaurant many time and if you dine in you will get very fresh lovely south East Asian flavours. The meet always used to be cooked perfectly.
