after reading all the reviews i could find my expectations were very high, the banyan tree is modern, clean and well presented, we were met at the door by our host and showed to the bar area to order drinks and brouse the menu, when the table was ready one of the waiters took our drinks and led us to our table, all very siverlised. the menue is not vast but very different, the food arived in good time and was of exceptional quality both starter and main were very pleasing, the waiters were not in your face but were there if you needed one and our glasss were not left empty. there is no desert menu which would have been nice, then came the bill which was half as much again as we would normaly pay which was a shock. my only critasisum is going to an authentic indian restaraunt and being served by an eastern block waitres did kind of detract from the atmosfear.
would we go back to the banyan tree ? ...................mabey if we won the lottery or came into some money. it is a lovely place to eat if somebody else is paying. but if you can aford it you wont be sorry you tried it.
