This hidden gem of a restaurant is essential for any fan of all things Indian cuisine related. Although it's a rather large restaurant - upstairs dining is an overflow option on a busy Friday night - it's surreptitiously hidden along a street away from the main pedestrian and vehicular traffic of the dominant city centre, and can subsequently be overlooked...

Visited here for the second time yesterday. It was quite busy and not really enough staff on. Service was slow, even getting the order taken took 30mins. Once the food arrived the main meal was great but the rice was undercooked. I mentioned this and they took it off the bill. As for the portion size, there was more than... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Service and food is without fault. There is a choice of food different to most Indian restaurants.

We went on a Saturday night and at first we were impressed with the layout as it is set over two floors. However, I ordered the fish curry based on really good reviews and was disappointed! Clearly taste for curry is subjective and I found this to both heat and flavourless, and I was 'fishing' around for piece of monkfish... More

We visited The Banyan Tree on the 12th and both myself and the Fiancée could not have been more impressed! The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The food was out of this world and we both agreed it was the best Indian food we have ever eaten. Could not recommend this place enough!

I have visited this restaurant and was well impressed with the decor and the food was really nice. It was afternoon but only several people we're ting but iCloud tell that it would be much better when lots of people would fill the place. Yes I would go back there to eat.t

Got samosas and a vegetable biryani for takeaway. I never expect much from samosas at Indian restaurants in the UK but these were even worse than average, and served without a leaf of salad or dip of any kind. The biryani was given to me without a raita (listed on the menu) so I had to return to the restaurant... More
