We were delighted with the waiter's knowledge of which dishes were vegan friendly & with his guidance for choosing. We were 3 vegans & a meat-eater & all of us were very pleased with our meals. This isn't your standard 'korma/tikka masala' type of curry house, it's authentic food with great flavours!

2 friends and I went for food and a few drinks. Food was delicious and a decent selection of drinks. Wasn't overly priced and had a nice atmosphere on a Saturday night.

Delicious food - and very authentic as it is cooked by a chef from Mumbai. The food is similar to that I ate when in Mumbai and really good.

I visited after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. The food certainly lived up to my expectations. I love Bhel Puri and the one I had here was the the best I've eaten other than at The Vegetarian Food Studio in Cardiff. I ordered 2 small dishes as a main course, Reshmi Paneer and Aloo Gobi, with Lemon Jeera rice and... More

Had a takeway from here (twice) whilst visiting. The gentlemen who took the orders on both occasions were polite and helpful, and the food was good value and very tasty. Definitely worth another visit.

A lovely restaurant with plenty of space between tables and attentive staff. My son and I had dinner here, ordered a selection of dishes, lentils, Goan fish curry, prawns, Bombay aloo, all all spiced according to personal preference. An excellent meal and excellent value for money. Not your run of the mill menu but definitely one to try.

Delicious. Had a cold and wanted some spice to open up my head. And man did they deliver! The great part is that it was not so stupidly hot that you couldn't taste anything. It was a nice round heat full of flavor. I had what is essentially a tikka masala with green chilies along with garlic naan and rice.... More

I am normally very disappointed when I eat out as most the time the food is a bit bland and not freshly cooked however this is certainly not the case with the Banyan Tree! My husband and I had the best food we have had in ages, the flavours and spices were exceptional and everything was freshly cooked. The waiter... More

We were impressed by the menu. For example I have not had Vada Paw outside Mumbai, and the starter was absolutely spot on. There was a good choice of drinks including three different Indian lager/beers. With friendly and enthusiastic staff we felt welcome and valued as customers. We will definitely be back.
