Worthy of 5 stars - Edit

Banana Tree is a pan-asian restaurant chain inspired by Indonesian, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Singaporean and Thai cuisi nes.

They have an innovative vegan and vegetarian menu. Every time we have an overseas visit, we take them to Banana Tree - food is considered tasty even for native Malaysians.

Try vegan coconut curry with combo - fantastic decoration, mouthwatering and filling!

Try vegan satay starter!

Great for both vegans and non-vegans.

Pros: Vegan menu, Great selection for vegans and non vegans, Meals good look if you like taking photos

Cons: Can't think of any

Average food expensive drinks - Edit

Food is well cooked if somewhat bland and you get a lot of it. I know this is the parallel universe that is London but £4.50 for a bottle of tiger beer is nuts or maybe I'm just out of touch, either way I'm glad it was on the expense account.

nice but nothing special - Edit

Seperate vegan menu with curries, stir fries... nice food but nothing special. Not the healthiest option.

Pros: very quick & nice service, clearly labeled for vegan, gf, allergies

Cons: the food looked as it was prepared hours before (a, loud restaurant

Tasty and convenient - Edit

I was looking for somewhere with a good range of veggie food which was located close to Sadler's Wells (where I was attending a performance that evening). The Banana Tree met both those requirements perfectly. It's a five minute walk from both Angel tube station and the theatre. Whilst it serves meat dishes, there's a separate menu which indicates all the vegetarian and vegan items, plus gluten free options. The food itself was excellent, especially the spring rolls we had as a starter. Definitely recommended!

Pros: Friendly, polite and attentive staff, Separate & clearly marked menu for veggies/vegans, Convenient for Sadler's Wells

Cons: A little on the pricey side
