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.

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

I went as part of a group from the office. We wanted a pleasant venue with interesting food to continue an all day meeting in a social context. The food was good and a little out of the norm for Indian restaurants, but the ambience was way off beam. It was all solid surfaces, so very noisy, making conversation difficult.... More

Honestly, the best Indian food I've ever eaten. Really different dishes and the manager was really helpful in choosing something just right. Amazing.

One of the best Indian restaurants I've ever dined at. Some of the dishes were different to traditional Indian takeaways but were delicious. The lamb was particularly tender and highly recommended. Superb.

Great food and lovely surroundings. Menu varied and pricing decent. Service was polite, friendly and attentive. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere Would definitely recommend and will be returning. We found ourselves in this restaurant on a Friday evening without booking, after we were bitterly disappointed with the service we had received in the Brewery Tap

My wife and sons took me for a delicious Indian meal in the Banyan Tree, to celebrate my birthday. We have never visited the City Centre one before, just the other local 'Branch' (sorry about that!) in Werrington. The décor inside was contemporary and very well designed and the food was excellent. The waiter recommended the lamb dishes, saying that... More

One of my work colleagues arranged for our team to go here for a celebration lunch. The banyan tree is situated in the middle of town and close to our office, so it was ideal. The food was lovely, one of the nicest kormas that ive had. The only thing I would suggest is looking at the drinks menu prior... More
