Chilli Banana Brings Authentic Thai Experience to Knutsford With Help of Dawnvale

Bar and restaurant design installation experts, Dawnvale have helped to bring an authentic taste of Bangkok to Knutsford high street after working with the Thai restaurant chain, Chilli Banana on its latest statement-making venue.

Dawnvale provided six of its core, turnkey services to help Chilli Banana transform an existing property into an Asian oasis, complete with open theatre kitchen. Working closely with the Chilli Banana team, Dawnvale delivered the design for the upmarket new eatery, commercial kitchen design and installation, bar design and build, furniture, flooring and fitout. Staying true to the Chilli Banana ethos of transporting diners to Thailand with every mouthful, objects imported from Thailand were used to dress the restaurant.

Dawnvale were commissioned to help Chilli Banana create an brand new dining experience in Knutsford following previous work on four of the brand’s other restaurants in Wilmslow, Liverpool, Didsbury and Bramhall. Each location has it own unique aesthetic, with the Knutsford venue taking on a contemporary feel thanks to its theatre kitchen.

Jacob Regan – Account manager for Chilli Banana, within Dawnvale said, “We have a great relationship with the Chilli Banana ownership team thanks to our previous work together so we had a good idea of what they were looking for. From start to finish, the whole project took around a month. One of the key things for us was to be able to offer this quick turnaround. We’re delighted with the end result which is an up-market Chilli Banana in keeping with the surrounding area. We really like the open theatre kitchen in the restaurant.”

During the build, the Dawnvale team discovered a number of 250-year-old beams which overlapped the property next door, almost delaying the project. To keep things on track, the ceiling was opened and new steel structures fitted to support it.

Chilli Banana provided a set brief for the interior, with the colours red, orange, purple and blue to be incorporated into the design. While each of the four restaurants have their own unique look, they all share this same colour palette.

With the ground floor complete and Chilli Banana Knutsford open for business, work is now underway on a second phase, with plans being drawn up for a bar and roof terrace on the first floor.
