    We booked a table for 2 for Sunday night. So glad we did as the place was packed! No wonder, when the food is so great. We thoroughly enjoyed the tempura veg and the satay chicken starters, and the chicken massaman curry with coconut rice was to die for. We will be back!

    We thought out two starters of scallops and spare ribs were really quite good, but the main courses were only average. Flavour and spice were lacking in both main courses and they only had a faint taste of Thailand. The chefs need to up their game and make the main courses more authentic with better quality ingredients and less of a “take away “ feel about the tastes and overall look of the dishes. Go to Thailand and you will be amazed by the difference from what is being offered here. As we go into recession the pressure is on just DO BETTER.

    Chilli Banana - Macclesfield (Owner)

    Hi Andrew, I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy your main courses with us and our food wasn’t authentic enough for your personal tastes. Over the past 17 years we have established ourselves in Macclesfield as a high quality Thai restaurant with authentic tastes. All of our staff are from Thailand after all. Everything is made fresh to order and we only use the highest quality ingredients which is reflected in our premium prices. Any of our dishes can be made stronger if you like yours more spicy. It’s a shame you didn’t inform us at the time that you were not happy with your meal as we could’ve had the opportunity to put it right. We will strive to continue to deliver the best possible Thai dining experience as you’ll see from our 5* reviews we like to please our customers. We are operating in difficult times and we find that these kind of comments are unconstructive and completely unwarranted. But I will ask my chefs to try and ‘UP’ their game a bit. Warmest regards, Ben

    The food was superb. The crispy noodles are sublime If there was any fault to be found it was the iced coffee was more ice than coffee. Service was friendly and efficient.

    This is the best Thai restaurant in Macclesfield. I’ve been so many times and it never disappoints. The food is great, and the atmosphere really nice. It also does a great lunch.

    Food and service was amazing. Would definitely recommend. They also have live music on (someone singing and playing the keyboard) which was lovely to hear.

    Good food 1 of the waiters I think was the manager was nice but the other waiter well i am glad he didn’t bring my food as he was scratching his genital area, hence why we asked for the service charge to be taken off not something you like to see while sat eating food

    Early evening so very quiet on arrival. Very explicit on cleansing and which way to go. Excellent social distancing and friendly helpful service. Delicious food and good selection of wines. Will definitely revisit.

    Very pleasant restaurant and always spotlessly clean. Great food. This time the service was a little slow . We had to ask for our plates to be cleared, ask for our desert order to be taken and then 3 times for the bill.

    It was our first time at Chilli Banana and we had a lovely lunch. The food was very good indeed, flavourful and authentic. Service was excellent also. The lunch options are a good idea because if you’re not too hungry you can choose the 2 plate meal, rather than the 3. The only small criticism is the cutlery wasn’t right. Trying to cut a fish cake or a lettuce leaf with a spoon doesn’t work! Knives should also be provided.
