Little Indochina, Chelmsford – Banana Tree’s Opening a Brand New Branch!

If you’ve ever poured your heart and soul into writing a novel, given birth to a tiny human or successfully assembled a rather complex piece of IKEA furniture, you’ll know how exciting and moving it is to bring something new into the world. That’s why we couldn’t be happier to announce the grand opening of Banana Tree’s latest branch in Chelmsford on 20 September!

After careful planning and lots of hard work, we can’t wait to become a part of the Essex community. At our new home in the High Chelmer Shopping Centre, we’ll be serving up our famously authentic Indochinese dishes. From our sweet, nutty Phad Thai, to aromatic Vietnamese Pho, to supremely tender Chargrilled Chicken seasoned with a symphony of Javanese spices, we’ve got something to match the tastes of every Chelmsfordian.

Banana Tree is sure to become your new favourite Thai restaurant in Chelmsford – especially when you hear about our special grand opening deal. To really show our appreciation to the people of Chelmsford for welcoming us, we’re giving you 50% off all our food on the day of our opening, September 20. This offer is exclusively available at the Chelmsford branch. You won’t want to miss it!

Now, we know what you’re thinking: this is great news for all those lucky people living in Chelmsford, but what should I do If I’m not a local? If you don’t live in the area, don’t fret! Plan a daytrip to Essex and you can enjoy Banana Tree’s mouth-watering food, as well as all the attractions the area has to offer.

On your excursion to Chelmsford, venture out to the Chelmsford Museum and take a gander at their fossil collection and living beehive, or check out their fascinating exhibit on the area’s evolution from the Ice Age to present day. You’ll also want to visit Hylands House and Park for a lovely autumn stroll – little ones can get rambunctious in the Adventure Castle Play Area, and gardening enthusiasts can take in the landscaping in the gorgeous Pleasure Gardens. And don’t forget to make some time for Tropical Wings Zoo, an interactive experience that lets you get up close and personal with meerkats, capybaras, blue and gold macaws and many other magnificent creatures. 

Once you’ve sufficiently worked up your appetite, head to Banana Tree Chelmsford for the meal you’ve been waiting for. Order a cocktail while you browse the menu and take in our beautiful new space, then settle in for a few starters (may we suggest the Kajang Grilled Satay and the Aubergine Half with Aromatic Caramel Sauce?). After these nibbles, move on to a moreish main like our Gaeng Keo Wan Green Curry or the Bun Bo Meaty Salad Bowl with Chilli Beef. Just be sure to leave room for dessert – we’re famous for our Coconut Stuffed Green Thai Pancakes and our Warm Chocolate Indo-Fondant.

Whether you’re a Chelmsford local or you’re visiting from out of town, we know you’ll love our newest Banana Tree location. Stop in on September 20 and see what all the excitement’s about – your tastebuds will thank you!
