Dao and Ben Jackson are proud to introduce diners to their superb Thai restaurant The Chilli Banana in Macclesfield. The pair have been serving delicious authentic Thai cuisine since opening for business in 2005, and have tickled scores of taste buds over the years.
The à la carte menu offers a classic gastronomical Thai experience. Nibble on salted cashew nuts while perusing the generous menu. Starters are many and varied, and feature tempting plates like spicy Thai fishcakes; minced prawn and pork toasts; catfish fillet in a sour mango and cashew nut salad, and a hot fragrant chicken soup flavoured with lemongrass and galangal. The mains are equally as familiar and comforting, with a whole host of options to keep guests happy. Try a classic stir fry dish, of which there are many. Thai-style sweet and sour chicken; stir fry beef with green chilli, or stir fried aubergines are among those listed. There are a selection of curries on show of varying heats including the Southern Thai Penang dish. A choice of whole sea bass and Scottish scallop dishes are a must-have for fish lovers, while those seeking traditionalism need look no further than the array of rice and noodle selections. Puddings come in the form of chocolate spring rolls and the venue’s own unique spicy and sweet dessert called Chilli Banana. There is something on the menu to suit all palates; providing a fine introduction to classic Thai cuisine for newcomers, as well as supplying ample well-known fodder for stalwart fans of this country’s varied and flavoursome gastronomy.
