We were too lazy to go to the restaurant after a day of relaxing in the spa & having treatments so we ordered room service to the room instead. The menu didn't have many options but the options did change depending on the time of day you order. When the food arrived it was lovely, we waited approx 20 minutes... More

When your Girlfriend tells you that she's bought a voucher to a 5* restaurant to treat you to a new job, you straight away think.. "Brilliant Gesture, But a 5 star restaurant wouldn't need to flog itself on Wowcher, so straight away I'm thinking emerging 4* - especially when it's cost her £50 without drinks." When you go out for... More

Great views of the Thames and next to the Helicopter launch pad, very James Bond but don't sit outside if you don't like watching helicopters landing and taking off. Personally it added to the evening. Interior really nice and service was good. All the food was delicious .

Right on Thames walk part of Raphael hotel, very nice food (the prawns were the best) and friendly staff. Can be a bit expensive without groupon voucher.

I loved the view and the restaurant was nice looking . However , our table clothes had a horrible musty smell . Perhaps it wasn't aired out properly after being washed. Dinner wasn't great. Maybe because it was the last orders? The food tasted stale and desert was worse. The cheesecake seemed like it had been out for days. I... More

Set inside London's most exclusive eco-friendly hotel, Rafael on the Left Bank, Banyan on the Thames is a chic restaurant overlooking the river and the London Helipad in Battersea. With so much action right outside its sound-proofed windows, this is a fantastic place to watch the world go by. And super-tanned sun-lovers adore the riverside roof terrace for summertime dining. The Hotel Rafayel is popular with an international, glamorous yet ecologically-sensitive set of travellers, and the Banyan on Thames is open to serve them ��� and you - breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is a melange of European, Asian and Mediterranean flavours, fusion cuisine at its finest. Favourite dishes here include the duck confit in a ginger and lime sweet and sour sauce; the mango and papaya salad with curry chicken; and the Barcelona traditional fish soup. Banyan on the Thames makes the most of the peace and tranquillity of its ideal riverside location.
