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

Probably the best Thai place we had visited! Absolutely nothing to complain about! We shared a Thai red curry and it was beautiful. Would recommend and definitely return!

Had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant and I am so glad I did. The food and the service was second to none, my only complaint is the menu was so extensive I struggled to choose, but when I did I was not disappointed. Having spent a lifetime ordering chicken dishes only not to eat the chicken because of the... More

I have visited this restaurant on few occasions as I live nearby. Great little Thai restaurant with really tasty and authentic Thai food. The Early Bird Menu is great value but a la carte can be quite expensive. Highly recommend the Black Pepper Squid, the Pad Thai and the Red Curry really delicious! They also make really good cocktails. Worth... More
