What a lovely meal we enjoyed when visiting Peterborough with friends in a lovely restaurant with superb ambiance. The food was excellent and the staff very efficient. We would certainly like to go back when we are next in the area.

I've visited the Banyan twice now and on both occasions, I've had a very good experience. The resturant itself is in a great location and the decor is clean, modern, very inviting which leads to a nice atmosphere. Staff are polite, quick and helpful and the price is very reasonable. I havn't given top marks as although the food was... More

A wonderful atmosphere and an excellent location. The food is above average, but not exceptional; however, the service is wonderful, yet you can't help be conscience of the constant up sell. An excellent venue for the romantic couple.

Love eating here. The staff are great and attentive. This is probably the best curry place to take your female friends or loved ones as the food is definitely on the aromatic side. I like the layout as well. All good stuff.

I have eaten here half a dozen times and always enjoyed the food. The Lamb dishes are very good, especially the Biryani. Interesting pickle tray and the King Prawn starters tempted me more than once.

Having been to their Werrington restaurant numerous times ,I thought I would try the city location. Big mistake , I can't believe how very different they are. The only way I can describe them is that Werrington is the a la carte and city is pub grub version. The curries when they arrived had a darkened skin on top as... More

I went along to the first curry club here in June. Probably the hottest day of the year so far and with eating a curry and no air conditioning it proved interesting. But, the food was good and the service was good. I'd definitely recommend it.

Hi zennor7 Really glad you liked your evening with us. Yes, it was a little warm that evening. Coupled with one or two spicey dishes and the large food warmers, it would have added an extra air of "warmth" !!! The restaurant has excellent AC coverage in the main sections. However, the particular section of the restaurant you wanted to... More

Me and my boyfriend ate here last night and it was excellent, both food and service. The waiters could not do enough to assist us, recommending food from the menu and giving us free drinks on the house at the end of the evening. The food was great, both our dishes were full of flavour and had a good kick... More
