We go the Banyan Tree when we happen to be in town in the early evening. At this time it is usually quiet although it does get busy later. On this occasion we had excellent friendly service. The waiters were very knowledgeable about the menu. The food as usual was well prepared and served. Beer and wine selection was pretty... More

We ate here this evening. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were brought poppadoms while we chose a main course and had plenty of time to look. The food came quickly and we were able to share a range of dishes. The meal was especially aromatic. With the poppadoms was a relish infused with lime. We had a... More
