Another great meal - lamb was amazingly tender and spiced to perfection. Service was spot on and we had a bottle of the pilotage - hugely under rated wine but it was immense on flavour and excellent value for money. We will be back soon

Monday night meal with some business colleagues. It was practically deserted so service was very attentive - food was really good, lots of murg based food on the menu (that's how they spell it - sometimes it's murgh). Typically creamy recipes, very enjoyable and recommended, prices reasonable and a typical dish is in the £7-£8 region.

Great Food...Chicken and Lamb Saag was delicious...meat was cooked to perfection. Would also recommend the Mixed Grill Starter and The White Chocolate Cheesecake with Vanilla and Honeycomb Ice Cream for Dessert. Welcoming and friendly staff with lovely surroundings.

I've been to The Banyan Tree several times, most recently for my work Christmas party. As usual the food was stunning.We were served one of their set menus with a selection of starters and different curries. There was something for everyone, and they even went out of their way to cook some chicken and chips for a co-worker who does... More
