Absolutely love Banana Tree, fantastic food, great service (most of the time). Lily served me and she was exceptional. I could see her working very hard, engaged with the guests, floor presence was 100%, well done Lily and hope Banana tree could utilise her skills...and train others to deliver the same service. I had Laksa soup for starter, duck salad for main and Balinese dessert.More

Six of us visited this restaurant together and everyone was very impressed by the quality/taste of the food. The popularity of takeaway orders meant that the food took a little while to be cooked for our table. However it was worth the wait and we...will definitely be visiting again.More

Throughout the meal we were waiting for long periods for the staff to take orders for drinks and food. We finished our mains, had the table cleared and then just sat there waiting for someone to give us a desert menu. No one came and...we ended up just asking for the bill and leaving. This place is the closest I've ever come to asking for the optional service charge to be removed from the bill, still far to awkward to actually do it, but it was really that bad.More

We love asian cuisine and we were excited to visit the Banana Tree as it looked amazing on social media. We are very bubbly outgoing people and even more so when we are excited about a dining experience such as this one. The food was...good - very good. A couple of the dishes were a little dull but the pad thai and chicken massaman were able to tip the scales. The service - we were waited on by several of the team and all were polite and helpful and appeared generally happy to be alive. Aside from one waiter. We first spotted him chatting to a little girl on the table behind us and thought it was lovely how he was interacting with her. Which made us feel personally targeted when he stood over our table to take our dessert order.... He stuck his hip out sighed heavily and wouldn't even look at us (I am laughing out loud as I type this!). Because we are bundles of energy and fun, I tried to loosen him up a bit with a joke - "the desserts look so good we want 3! Will you judge us?!" He sighed again... and just walked off with a look of complete irritation. I could hear his eyes rolling 🙄. It was very amusing to us but it isn't really good enough for a member of the waiting team to be so obviously rude to customers. Would we go back? My hubby would, he really liked it. Would I? Maybe, but I would hesitate out of principle for the rude waiter who quite simply didn't like the look of us 😂More

We were staying at The Hilton Doubletree in Milton Keynes and spoke to some locals as to where to get a good Thai meal. We ordered online and food was delivered by Deliveroo. The website ordering system was really easy to use. We both had...the chicken dumplings to start, these were amazing. Full of flavour and a generous size, served with just the right amount of dipping sauce. One of us had the chicken pad Thai and the other had green Thai curry with chicken. Both portions were just the right size, but if you are a big eater order a side dish of rice otherwise you could be left wanting. The flavours were amazing, food beautifully presented and served in perfect tableware takeaway containers. These were lovely presentable bowls, we stay at Hilton Hotels all over the world and these bowls were perfectly presentable for the table in our suite at The Hilton. Highly recommend The Banana Tree for your meal if ever you are in Milton Keynes.More

9th Dec 2021 - dinner for two. On entry there is a sign saying please wait here to be seated. I waited for five minutes and nobody came, so I waited for my friend at the bar instead. Whilst there I watched more people gathering...at the entrance until the queue was out of the door, still nobody came to greet them. I went directly to the seating area and spoke to a waiter who told me the table was still busy, so we waited 15 mins to get seated, having pre-booked a slot. The service was tardy throughout the meal and our waitress didn’t engage with us. When food was brought, it arrived one dish at a time. That is to say one guest got their main whilst the other waited for ten minutes or more. The meals were incomplete, with noodles arriving substantially later then either dish. We had dinner and desserts and at no point were any of our courses served simultaneously. Service charge I s automatically included in the bill, of course. On the other hand, the food delivered was delicious, flavoursome and well portioned. My recommendation - get it on Deliveroo instead.More

Food arrived really quick with the drinks, all was lovely, we were served by Hannah who was great, she was quick to take our orders, and also checked back on us in a way that wasn’t overbearing. Very friendly. Thank you Banana tree:)
