The restaurant provided our group with a buffet of selected Indian foods, including Poppadoms, rice, Keema Naan, Naan and a choice of 3 mains. Very good quality food, and delicious with it.

Attentive and friendly and efficient service on every visit. The food is always excellent, distinctive flavours, perfect sized portions, enormous choice and never disappoints. An asset to the city (Westgate branch, never been to Werrington one) if you've never been, try it I'm sure that like us, you'll look forward to your return visits.

The Banyan Tree has an interesting selection of curries. Unfortunately, they don't live up to their potential. The Rajasthani dish with dumpling sounded a delight but they were pappy and underdone in the middle. My partner's curry featured poppy seeds which overwhelmed the whole ish. She also ordered mushroom rice which was nearly five pounds for a few meagre spoonfuls.... More

Great Indian restaurant in the heart of Peterborough. Best I've ever had. Great naan. Great rice. Great veg dishes. Mongoose and kingfisher on tap.

I love the Banyan Tree!! I particularly recommend the Murgh Tikka Masala and the wine list is very good and reasonably priced. The small cocktail bar is also nice. Peterborough needs more restaurants of this standard!!

The decor of the restaurant is very stylish, clean and modern there was a lovely chilled out relaxed atmosphere the evening we were there and there were a... More

I'd heard great things about this restaurant and went on the recommendation of friends. It was a nice enough meal, the service was friendly and attentive and the surroundings were pleasant. However, the price was very high for what was being served, in my opinion. Also, it was notable on all our main courses that the main 'meat' (whether chicken... More

Been meaning to return for some time but not been possible so really happy to have booked for New Years Eve. Down side was that they were only doing a set menu but as the food never disappoints went for it anyway. Once again the food lived up to expectation, a great selection of starters, 3 different mains with 2... More

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
