An interesting menu, and judging by what we ate everything is so fresh, with the flavours of each dish quite specific and clear.

Very average Indian restaurant lacking authentic flavour even after informing the server that we would like our food spicy. There servers not very interested in the guest across the board

We have made another visit to the Banyan Tree and yet again the food was very good. The service was excellent as usual. The beer selection is excellent. There was a hint that they were going to start serving desserts the following week. This would be a bonus.

Travelling around the country for work I eat out a lot and everytime I visit Peterborough I look forward to the banyan tree. The food is absolutely amazing and the service to match. If you are in the area I strongly recommend to try it.

I've been to many indian restaurants but I have never been overly satisfied with them. I tried The Banyan Tree and absolutely loved it!! The food was great and the staff are very helpful in explaining the dishes. The atmosphere is great for family and couples.

All business. I hired the whole joint out for a launch party. Exclusivity! No ones ever been offered this until now. They designed, arranged and catered the whole event, Period! Never been done before in an Indian restaurant. Bollywood! The true desi rascals of show-business. Food was great, service was cool. Don't hate these playas, hate the game. Amitabh Bachan... More

excellent and exquisite mouthwatering food every time. Service was simply exceptional, I travel from Milton Keynes every week to dine at the banyan tree as there is no Indian restaurant in the uk that even compares to them. I order lots of takeaway as I always want more :) thank you banyan tree you are truly amazing

Three things you need to look out for in any restaurant - quality, freshness and taste! And this people is without a doubt the best Indian restaurant in Cambs. And I've been to quite a few and know my dishes (being Indian). The sizzling mix grill starters are a particular favourite of mine - So fresh and just like home... More
