The food was fab. It is the closest I've had in this country to anything served in India in recent years. The green banana curry was wonderful. Its a little more pricey than other local places so I checked the bill carefully - only to notice that a desert we had not had but the table next to had was... More

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to try it for ourselves. We're so glad we did! The food is Southern Indian & my husband had recently been to Goa. We had the Goan Fish curry which was excellent. All the food was tasty & service brilliant. If you're Peterborough & love Indian food don't miss out on... More

They know their spices here. If you want to try something you never have just ask, they are very helpful. Lovely lovely food.

What a wonderful experience, it obviously was a pub, very tastefully designed quite upmarket, its the sort of place you can go for a beer and some Tapas rather than a meal. The restaurant wasn't very busy when I went but that was a Monday night, I was seated and two poppadum's arrived which were fresh, didn't think much of... More

Hi Pammy Thank you for your kind review and I am really pleased you enjoyed the food. Just wanted to clarify about the Gourmet card. It isn't anything that we at Westgate are affiliated to and we don't advertise it on our website. We have informed the people that supply your card that they need to clarify the restaurant details...

Visited on 6/8/14 for our wedding anniversary. We arrived unexpectedly to ask for a table, we where greeted very warmly by the very friendly waiter and shown to a well positioned table. I have to say the menu is not the standard Indian menu you would normally expect in most restaurants, it was a refreshing surprise to read though. My... More

This was the first time we had visited the Banyan Tree in over 3 years but we will be back much quicker next time. We received excellent service throughout our visit and the quality of our starters and main courses (Goan fish and lamb bhuna) was very high. The Banyan Tree offers a bit of an alternative to the traditional... More
