We went on a Groupon offer with our friends and the food is A class on presentation, quality, and taste. There is a great choice and you wouldn't be disappointed on anything you chose. I have heard several recommendations and it lives up to it.

Had the £18 for 2 offer from groupon (main and dessert) really tasty menu and something for everyone. Struggled to find a parking spot though and area seemed a little rough around a block of flats being constructed. Restaurant was quiet and small but service was quick and friendly. Would recommend.

4 of us came for a Sunday afternoon lunch after purchasing a Groupon Voucher. We had a varied selection of main meals and all were delicious. The deserts were fab with the chocolate brownie being described as the best they'd ever had. Would definitely be back even without a voucher!

My friends and I are still drooling over our two course menu we enjoyed this Wednesday evening. We are proper eaters (eat out in Salford, Manchester and surrounding at least twice a week) and we know when we're getting value and quality. This is a chill little place a couple of hundred yards from Deansgate. The music and ambience were... More

We went here on a Groupon Deal, which meant we could have a main each and dessert each. I opted for the chicken supreme with tasty burnt onion mash and enjoyed it. My Husband chose fish and chips, which he enjoyed too. For dessert, there was 3 options, all of which contained nuts. Not my favourite. My Husband had the... More

We went yesterday evening and enjoyed fabulous curries and gorgeous deserts at very reasonable prices. The drinks are also very well priced with very decent coffee to finish the meal.Charming service in a slightly quirky, bohemian style venue. We agreed best meal we've had in a long time. We'll definitely be back to this 'hidden gem' which is accessible with... More

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.
