A nice full day out in WINDSOR including a press preview of a new restaurant.
The tourists are still everywhere and a nice shopping centre full of quality stores.
We saw Windsor Guildhall (built 1689) where Elton John and David Furnish got married.
We sat down by The River , as the tourist boats took crowds along.
I have done that a couple of times before.
We walked over the bridge to Eton, where many Prime Ministers and Royals went to school.
From 4pm to 6.30pm we had a press preview of the newly opened BANANA TREE.
It officially opened on Monday, September 4, the award-winning chain offers both chicken and vegan options of its katsu curry, coated in crispy panko.
The chain says it is the "best katsu in town" offering a "mouth-watering" sauce alongside chicken or vegan bites, Japanese rice, edamame and house pickles.
The brand-new restaurant, located at the site of the former Café Rouge on Thames Street, features 116 indoor covers, and a further 86 outside.
Anne Chow, Managing Director at Banana Tree, said: “We’re really excited to open a brand-new site in Windsor and can’t wait to show locals what we have to offer.
They have all-day 2-for-1 cocktail offer, (2 for £14) along with an express lunch menu, means they have got something for everyone, whether they’re looking for a light lunch or a Pan-Asian Feast.
Banana Tree hand-picks the best dishes from Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia to feature on its menu, from soups and salads to wok-tossed noodles, stir-fries and curries, as well as South-East Asia-inspired desserts and cocktails.
The full menu will be available on Deliveroo to enjoy at home and a bottomless brunch will be available every day when eating in.
We had a full three course meal.
We got four different starters to share including Thai Calamari , Sticky Thai Wings and
Malaysian Chicken Satay Sticks.
My mains were their Crispy Katsu Chicken Curry and sides which was very nice.
For dessert i had banana fritters and vanilla ice-cream.
A very enjoyable meal here.
