Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have always enjoyed the food at the Banyan Tree so had a friends birthday meal there on a Friday night. I can only assume it was a rare night off for the family that own the establishment. Met at the bat for drinks and service...was polite but slow and not engaging, had to ask for drinks as they weren't offered. Once seated had to ask for menus, received 4 drinks menus. Asked for the food menus and more drinks. Only 2 menus and slow drinks service. I have never had to request poppadoms at an Indian restaurant but when he walked off when I was asking I knew we'd come on the wrong night (however it wasn't busy). Came back and 10 minutes later popadoms and starters ordered (werent allowed to order mains at the same time). Food arrived minus 1 meal and ordered more drinks. Drinks didn't arrive, hadn't ordered mains so called it a night and went elsewhere (after paying the bill;-)) Such a shame as the food was, as usual, really good. If I didn't know this was a blip it would have been a lower score. We all have our off days and this was one of theirs.More

The staff need to get their act together. Cant complain about the food, just the way it was served and miscommunicated. We ordered a sharing platter of the Frontier Mixed grill as a starter, then curries and rice etc for mains. We waited over 40...minutes before all of a sudden our table was full of everything served at once. which led to us eating fast so it wouldnt go cold and having to put our main on a dirty plate used by the starter- the staff were not paying attention else we would have asked for a clean plate or for the mains to be taken to be kept warm. To top all that an hour after we left we suddenty realised that the sizzling platter was served with no fish and that was one of the main reasons we had ordered it to try something a bit different. Its put us off going againMore

Food was very good. Had lunch time special. Small choice if staters and curry with nan or rice. Smaller portion than main menu but plenty big enough for lunch. You can ask for it to be made extra spicy if that is your preferanc.

Amazing night for Valentine’s- so refreshing to find a restaurant who are not charging double for the same menu as another night. The Banyan Tree instead devised a beautiful 10 course menu and decorated the whole restaurant for valentines spacing the tables to give more...private conversations. The food was amazing, with each dish excellently presented and explained when brought to the table. One of us is vegetarian and they went out of the way to ensure that the vegetarian was well catered for, nothing was too much on their customer care.More

The food was probably the best Indian food I've ever had. The waiter Rana was fairly new he told me, but you wouldn't know, his service was absolutely first class. I've eaten in banyan tree many times, it's always been high quality, but I think...this time was the best. Perfect lunchtime, perfect food and service, I'll definitely be back again.More

What an absolute pleasure to dine here with friends last night. The welcome, the service and the food were second to none. The owner Dinesh and head waiter Dheeraj are a credit to the restaurant trade. We had a very well thought through taster menu...that took us on a journey through traditional Indian food. From start to finish our palate was treated to some amazingly flavoursome food, all brilliantly described of the origins of each dish. Every dish was savoured by all 3 of us. The king cobra also compliments the flavour and spice delivered. Thank you Dinesh and your team, you are all very talentedMore

We stopped off in Peterborough and decided to try this restaurant, we were not disappointed. I eat at a LOT of Indian restaurants and have to say the food was absolutely superb. This was also the view of my five friends. The flavours were wonderful...and the service was excellent, really friendly. Looking forward to going back.More

We really enjoyed our night out at The Banyan Tree in Peterborough. The service was excellent and our waiter was very helpful describing the items on the menu as they were very different to what we're used to in the North West of the UK....The quality and choice of food was excellent. We'll certainly be going back next time we're in Peterborough.More

Always visit the Banyan when I’m on business in Peterborough… never fails to impress. The owner couldn’t be more attentive and helps guide you through the extensive menu. And the food is some of the best Indian out there (and I’ve travelled a lot)
