This is no ordinary Indian food, every meal is a banquet! The tastes and smells are authentic, individual and inspiring. Service excellent and menu extensive.

I usually eat at the other Banyan Tree restaurant in Werrington village simply due its convenient location. However, I use the city Banyan Tree fairly frequently. I have always found the food and service excellent. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the food. The menu is varied and it always seems possible to alter the dishes if you want... More

One of the best Indians I've had. Authentic cooking and not swimming in oil. Pleasant surroundings and spacious inside.

Building and atmosphere really quite different, but as regular Indian restaurant visitors, we rate this restaurant and over priced and over rated. Food was hot, service was medium, nothing special, but prices very high compared with the competition. Waiters & owner say that the food is made fresh, that is why it taste different... poppy cock! We know fresh food... More

Incase TA allow your scandalous review to remain, I will add :- Since you appear to be an expert in all things foodie, from Indian to British cuisine, check the hygeine rating... More

Went on a Wednesday evening, did not book ahead. Immediately welcomed and offered a seat and very quickly taken to our table. Service was first class, the waiter even offered to move us as shortly after we were seated as a larger group arrived who where a little but not overly loud.

Food was great and fairly priced. Service struggled under pressure (we waited half an hour for our plates to be cleared, and without drinks too)

Hi Thank you for posting a review and really pleased that you enjoyed the food. Your comments about the table clearing have been noted. We do try exceptionally hard even during very busy periods to get the service perfect and when it does not go to plan, the whole team try to work out what may have gone wrong and... More

We have been to this restaurant many times and the food, service and surroundings are consistently very good. There is a depth to the flavour of the food, it is light to eat and there is a wide variety of food. It has something which makes it stand apart from other Indian restaurants I have been to.
