We went here recently, with a group of friends, for our anniversary dinner. We ate upstairs, in the private area and had the set menu. Wow, the food was good! It was also very reasonable at £25/head for 2 courses, which included huge prawns. The service was constant but understated and not intrusive at all. It's not our first visit... More

It's a pity we were the only customers, weekday lunchtime. But it's still a pleasant lunch and they have a good selection of beers.

I enjoy spicy food but when there's no actual flavour and over hit with spice it's very disappointing the restaurant itself is nice and welcoming food not great. At the end of the day this is why we go out to dinner to enjoy fine good food so we don't have to cook. Not a tick on our box. Never... More

Visited on recommendation and had a great meal. The venue is very pleasant with friendly attentive staff. The meal was very good, with checks to ensure how we preferred the strength - mild, medium or hot. All in all an excellent evening was had. Thanks very much.

It's not very often I go for a curry and really enjoy it, most places serve the same old crap made from the standard base sauces... Got persuaded to try this one last night and what a surprise !!! Freshly cooked from scratch, absolutely superb, reminded me of being back in the Baltic triangle in Birmingham.. Superb job, well done... More

First visit to The Banyan Tree with friends. The place is centrally located and parking at Westgate is recommended. The menu choices are varied and are not just the average Indian cuisine options you see everywhere, which makes a nice change and the veggie choices are good too. Food was good and served hot and the environment and staff was... More

Food good and drinks / cocktail menu looked excellent, ordered an expresso martini then they took our food and wine order. Several people covering the table but nothing arriving.Eventually the martini arrived a fair while after the wine and to be honest it really did not taste of any martini just an iced expresso. The food was good and the... More
