Came across this gem of a place when walking by looking for a place for dinner, inside was beautiful and the staff were welcoming, food was amazing i had the satay chicken skewers which were very tasty and my hubby had steak which he enjoyed too, 2-4-1 cocktails and 3 ways ice cream was a great addition too, would defs come back to this treasure if I’m in town again.

We arrived on a lovely sunny day for brunch and cocktails. We ordered using the table qr code. It took 35 minutes to receive 2 cocktails, when we complained the waitress just sighed and walked off, then we complained inside and we were completely ignored - so we never got food. Service and staff behaviour disgusting and we won’t be back.

Cocktails were terrible, basically a glass of ice for £15! Service was slower than I’ve ever experienced and food was dreadful. Rock hard bagels and cold food. Just awful!!

Banyan is a lovely venue that has been fitted out to a high standard. Located centrally in Leeds this lovely bar/eaterie is across the road from
The station and you cannot miss the building as it has all the drama of a Bridgerton set. Lots of tables indoors and out also. We arrived for a business meeting and the entire team were extremely warm and friendly so compliments to you all. Lucy was our main host and she kept our glasses filled with delicious NZ Sauvignon Blanc whilst we enjoyed fine fayre. Super place! Love it

Me and my friend went yesterday early evening and had the best few hours. The bloody Mary's are amazing and the prosecco with chambord was extra special. We were recommended the bang bang chicken fried rice , which was delicious. Best of all was Georgia our waitress (is that still the right word?) who is exceptional at her job. She was so attentive to us, and all her other customers. I think she did about 19,000 steps yesterday!! She was a total delight and made the afternoon even more special. I give the whole experience 5 stars and highly recommend it.
