Visiting for a Sunday lunch with or son we parked nearby at Westgate (£2.50/hr) and were shown to a table in the front room. Only two other tables occupied so was a bit lacking in atmo but not their fault. The manager was friendly enough but the waitress was a bit glum. We took the 2 courses for £10 lunch... More

After hearing some great reviews about this place we decided to visit for Sunday lunch, I booked ahead as it was one of the parties birthday, we arrived at 12:20 (table booked for 12:30) and the place was deserted, not a staff member or a customer in site, after waiting for a bit I had to go upstairs and find...

After hearing amazing reviews of this restaurant we were really looking forward to visiting for my partners birthday. Booked the table over the phone, and the lady was so welcoming - even allowed my to order a birthday treat (cake with a candle) at the pleasure of the restaurant. On arrival I thought the restaurant felt more like a Wetherspoons... More

We really enjoyed our meal. The waiter and waitress were very helpful helping us choose the right dishes. All the food came at the same time, all of it was lovely. Very reasonable price too

Went here today with my wife. Felt rushed from the start even though it wasn't very busy. My lamb curry was nice, but my wife's Makhani tasted like it was made using tinned soup as a base... No real atmosphere at all.

I wrote a fairly positive review a couple of years ago, but something terrible has happened since to the Banyan Tree! Opting for a Sunday lunch and taking advantage of the lunch menu offer, the wife and I tucked into a couple of atypical dishes. The starters were okay, but not great - just seemed to lack any depth of... More

I have been eating at the Banyan tree since it started in 2006. It is easily the best curry restaurant in the city and areas around. The food is authentic and the decor very traditional but classy. The service is good and the owner Dinesh extremely helpful and caring. Its a genuine Indian restaurant and I am told by the... More

Came here for a curry after being recommended by more than one individual. The food was great a perfect portion for just fullness between us, would order 2 rices in the future as they were very small. Only down was the atmosphere in the upper eating area, no music which was abit odd but had a pleasant enough evening.

Thank AFletcher92
