We went with some friends for supper, nice surroundings but the welcome was some what indifferent and our first round of drinks took ages coming. The starters arrived and were very tasty, then disaster stuck with the main courses, one of our party had chicken with BLOOD still coming out of it ! When we complained the waiter said "That's...

Lovely food and great service. Great to have different dishes on the menu but would cook everything to your taste. Not the cheapest but will be going again for sure.

Simply the best Indian food I've tasted in ages. The service was excellent and the dining chairs were extremely comfy!! I will be visiting the area again in a couple of months and I will most certainly be making a return visit.

Delicious food, Onion Bahjis were the best I've had, plenty of choice for vegetarians. Very authentic rice. I do think the price is a bit steep; at £60 for the two of us with only one drink each it'll be a special occasion place. Our local restaurant would cook a perfectly decent meal offering BYOB and would be a third... More

Best Indian in Peterborough. Just had a gorgeous meal. Best peshwari naan I have ever tasted. The service was fantastic. So helpful. I had a piña colada cocktail which was so lovely. We were served so fast. The waiters were very attentive. Really pleased! Thank you so much :)

Visited for the first time in July after hearing only good things....it won't be my only visit! Food was tasty, plentiful and a little different to your usual indian restaurant fare. The staff were friendly and helpful. Well worth a trip if you've never been but expect to be 'converted'.

I belong to the Peterborough Curry Club - curry lovers who met up once a month and dine at Indian restaurants in the city and surrounding area. This was our third visit to the Banyan Tree and did not disappoint. The restaurant is on 2 levels, ground floor is a wonderful bar area, and lounge seats too for pre dinner... More
