Lovely start to our evening out in here. Service was quick and polite. I can highly recommend the espresso martini. Absolutely delicious. Will definitely be returning

We visited with our nephew and his friends. They had told us they were going to eat Burgers so our expectation of the food was low. In fact, the menu was bigger and I ordered a spicy salmon fillet on a bed of greens. My husband ordered the mushroom risotto. Both were delicious, though the portion of risotto was a little small. The atmosphere upstairs was fun and lively. The overall bill was very reasonable. I would definitely return

Came in for some light bites, the food was ok and the waitress was nice. I believe my only problem was whilst eating we saw staff members standing on their phones. Not ideal when you want to grab someone's attention.

We enjoyed our early dinner/late lunch, place quiet so got one of the high up booths, prompt attention from the staff and quickly served drinks. Ordered two mains only, which took long enough to arrive so that you knew they were freshly cooked. Very tasty too. Didn't have dessert, price put us off, £5.95 each

At first impression it looks nice but then u get sat down and then u have to either start a tab or go to the bar and order food yourself??? Food was overpriced for the portion size and main meal was a flop, i ordered "king prawn kick" which was a massive bowl with a few strands of spaghetti and a few shrimps with no spice at all, my plate of food looked so anaemic it was unreal. Don't recommend to anyone who is a foodie.

Jameelma,

I am disappointed to hear about your lack of satisfaction on your recent visit to Banyan.

We do offer all of our guests the option of 2 service styles. We offer full table service upon setting up a tab for those wanting a full restaurant style service, or if our guests prefer they are welcome to order and pay at the bar.

We believe this flexible service will cater to a wide audience and give our customers the freedom to choose a service style that suits them. This also works because we are a bar and not a restaurant and so often guests get up after their meal and move around the bar.

With to regards the meal you received, we are looking into our weights and specifications for the dish and we will be discussing with our Head chef and food development manager to see if and where improvements can be made.

All feedback is an invaluable tool for us to use and keep improving.

I hope you have confidence we are taking appropriate action and in the future choose to visit us again.
