Superb Thai food. The restaurant was very inviting with polite and friendly staff, especially Jack, our waiter. We would recommend and definitely return here. The sharing platter for starters followed by the red thai curry was the best ever

Wonderfully fresh, tasty Thai food. A good variety of meal choices. More pricey than Thai food in Australia, but reasonable for the UK, and definitely the best we've had here. Staff also very helpful, friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this place to eat.

Good restaurant. Staff helpful & friendly. We were given a table even though we hadn't booked. Food was very good too. Reasonably priced & on the bus route so easy to get to. Well worth a visit, advisable to book especially at weekend.

As the title says I couldn't fault it. The food is fabulous. The service is very good and the decor and interior of the restaurant is very fitting and elegant. Highly recommend.

We went for a meal with family and had a great night. The food was wonderfully presented and tasted great. The atmosphere and friendly staff really added to the night. Would highly recommend and look forward to our next visit.

Me and my boyfriend came to Dublin for two nights and we decided to spend both of the nights in Chilli banana. Honestly, the food was so good! I've never had Thai food like it! (And the cocktails were great too!), the staff were SO friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this restaurant, its absolutely amazing!

Nothing special about this place but on the same note it wasn't bad. Pad Thai was a very small potion but tasty and my wife beef and broccoli was very salty. Had better Thai meals but definitely better than the food they served in the Skylon

We visited here in March 2017 whilst staying at the nearby Skylon Hotel. We had a baby with us too - and this was no hassle to the staff whatsoever. The food was great - I had a chicken satay followed by the green chicken curry and was very impressed with both. Complimentary prawn crackers and rice included with the... More
