"The 35 strong team have been training hard in our sister restaurants throughout the country for several weeks, and now our team are training on site, we think our Portsmouth restaurant could be our best looking one yet! We’re looking forward to welcoming you to our award winning restaurant. Our Malaysian born founder created the brand out of a love for South East Asian flavours, and his mother’s recipe is still used today in our most popular dish (our chicken or vegan satay) and don’t forget to ask for our ‘not so secret’ home-made chilli sauce to add that extra level of flavour.”

The restaurant features hand picked authentic dishes from Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia and customers can tuck into a range of meals including soups, salads, noodles, stir fries and curries, as well as South-East Asia-inspired desserts and cocktails. The Banana Tree will also be offering a bottomless brunch, available seven days a week, which will give guests the opportunity to enjoy a two-hour reservation filled with either unlimited cocktails, Prosecco, or beer, and indulge in irresistible Southeast Asian food, with vegan and vegetarian options available too.
