Met up with some friends for dinner. All of us ordered curries(boring I know). Tasty enough but nothing special. Big piece of cling-film in one. Promptly replaced by the staff with a genuine apology and the meal deleted from the bill. Staff are nice

Description
The Banyan Tree is a unique Restaurant and Bar situated on Ellesmere Street on the edge of contemporary Castlefield. The name is based upon on a tree that is famous in South Asia. In most traditional villages of South Asia, a huge Banyan Tree provides a meeting place for the community. They gather in its shade to chat, relax or discuss important issues and make decisions. We provide a perfect space to meet and relax with friends or business colleagues. Welcome!
