Whenever we visit Oxford we always eat dinner in Banana Tree, their food is excellent in taste, size and presentation. It has good value for your money. This is highly recommended for those who likes Asian fusions. A must try in Asian cuisine. We would...always look forward to having another dinner in Banana Tree. Cheers and keep up the good work👍👌🏻More

When we first arrived I was very excited to try some of their gluten free food as I had seen some very good reviews from other coeliacs. It started off good with a range of items i could choose from the menu that were coeliac...safe. Once we had ordered I noticed that the food was taking very long, but I didn't mind as I would rather they take their time to give me safe food. However once the food finally came out this is where it all went south as I noticed something weird. On the menu I had ordered the chicken massaman and there was no mention of crackers which my dish had on them. I remembered from the menu that sone of the other dishes you had to request for no crackers for it to be gluten free. This started to make me worry as if they had messed up on the crackers what else could have been wrong too, so I knew I couldn't eat the dish. I left the dish untouched and the server took the dish away for me. Then when it was time to pay we payed for both my boyfriend's food that he had eaten and my dish which I had not even touched. I understand that they had taken time to make a dish, but it was very odd that we had to pay full price for my dish that I could not even eat. Overall it was a very poor experience and upsetting as I had been so excited to eat the food. As a coeliac I would say avoid until their allergy care is dramatically improved.More

Has always enjoyed the restaurant on previous visits to Oxford but was disappointed this time. The chicken in the satay was over cooked and the sauce watery: the main taste in chicken wings should not be fish sauce: the Vietnamese noodle salad was boring. However...the deep fried calamari was excellent as was the service from the staff.More

Can't fault the food and the setting, but when I received the bill at the end of the night was totally shocked. We had 3 starter, 2 mains and some drinks each and came to about £80....I am still sat here typing wondering if a...mistake had been made... Food was lovely don't get me wrong but really it was just noodles and a curry....real shameMore

I came to banana tree for the second time and it once again the food was breath taking! Every one of my friends enjoyed their food and said they'll definitely be back. 100% my favourite restaurant and the service is always fantastic. Even during a...pandemic they made our experience feel so natural and welcoming. The cocktails were amazing and everything we had hoped for.More
