A new Indo-Chinese restaurant will officially open its doors in The Hub, Milton Keynes, on Wednesday.

It has taken three months to convert three smaller units into one impressive venue in the heart of the city, but it’s almost time for Banana Tree to launch its eighth restaurant in the UK.

And it’s the largest Banana Tree venue to date, including a fully licensed bar serving unique and delicious Indochina-inspired cocktails plus a host of different dining areas, suitable for couples as well as groups or corporate bookings.

Banana Tree’s delicious Indochinese menu is the creation of founder and head chef, William Chow. It comprises elements from Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia and uses common ingredients such as lemongrass, coconut, galangal, Thai basil and coriander in the cooking.

These have allowed William to design a revolutionary menu that offers homemade dishes such as Vietnamese Monks’ Spring Rolls and The Legendary Rendang on the same dining table as Lemongrass and Turmeric Stir Fry, and Tamarind Crispy Fish with Thai Basil Glaze. William, an architect by profession, also designed the whole restaurant, which is striking and combines industrial chic and an oriental market feel, as well as some immensely fun elements such as the hanging chairs, the prison cell and a unique sunken eating area.

William said: “We are really happy with all the feedback and comments as well as the warm welcome that we received tonight from the people of Milton Keynes.

“We can’t wait to open our doors to the public and will strive to impress everyone with our fantastic food and drinks, friendly service and new design ideas!”

Simon Spavins, from Broadoak Management, who manage The Hub, said “We are delighted to welcome Banana Tree to The Hub, they offer a completely different dining experience and they introduce a new cuisine into the mix for Hub customers to discover and enjoy.”
