The food here is really good- fresh and made with care. However, my wife and I were seated alone in a front part that was freezing cold. Made it hard to enjoy the food. I saw food going by to other rooms, not sure what else they had for seating. Also, the menu is a la carte despite dishes not... More

I found this restaurant last year by reading reviews from TripAdvisor. I love this place , not your typical Indian restaurant and if you love Indian food as I do and I often eat in Southall this place still has it. Great food, Great service and Great Venue. The only reason I will be going to Peterborough in the new... More

The banyan tree never disappoints. Fast efficient and friendly service and every dish spiced and cooked to perfection. Accommodating when it comes to amending dishes, can provide a great lunchtime service in a lunch hour. Been many many times and it never disappoints

I have eaten in this restaurant twice. The service on both occasions was good. The food was excellent and overall I found it to be good value for money.

Yet another excellent meal at the Banyan Tree. Service was good. All the staff were helpful. Drinks arrived promptly. Poppadoms and pickle tray to start. Main courses were excellent - (maybe too much meat?). We were offered the main courses cooked to our preferred 'spice level'. The coffee machine wasn't working, but coffee was still provided. Good selection of beers... More

Finally given menu and drinks order taken. Menu was very basic but the four of us managed to order. No pickles with poppadoms, main course came before we finished our... More

Massive problems with service. Could be brilliant but have huge problems. No offer of deserts or coffees. Only had 2 drinks. No waiter. Could go on. Never again. Disgrace to the... More

After a trip to France.... We broke the long journey home with a stop in Peterbrough. Lovers of Indian food, we took to Tripadvisor to seek out Peterbroughs No1! & we are glad we did as we were not disappointed! Fabulous food and service from start to finish. Would highly recommend and will certainly stop again on our next trip.... More
