Description: 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.

The food was good and the service very good, for the price my expectations were quite high and the quality of the food did not meet them.

This restaurant was a mixed bag for me. The menu was a hash of Indian, Thai, Chinese and Italian, service was mixed - our waiter did not seem to know the menu, but one of the managers was very good. Dishes were mixed too - really tasty prawns but disappointing thai green curry. The view is really good, but the experience is somewhat odd given the confusing menu and service.

I dined at Banyan on the Thames last week whilst staying at the hotel. It's the second time I've eaten in this restaurant and on both occasions the food has been absolutely superb! Hotel guests receive 50% off the food bill which means I paid £18 for the best filet mignon I've ever eaten. (Which is as much as a mediocre rib-eye steak costs in my local pub!) The lobster ravioli starter was delicious, and the wine list was also very reasonable. We stayed for cocktails in the bar after dinner and the mixologist was very knowledgeable and really friendly. It was a brilliant night and I would recommend this restaurant to anybody without hesitation!

Lovely food, well priced and presented! Some of the views from the restaurant are stunning and there was a good choice on the menu on the day we dined there.
