Gorgeous food and absolutely amazing service! The restaurant was so busy and the atmosphere electric - probably because everyone had the same treatment as us! Not to sound rude but when I walked in and noticed how busy it actually was, I assumed we'd suffer service-wise and also assumed there'd be a delay on the food. I couldn't have been more wrong! Service was 6 out of 5, I just wish I'd got our waiters name! That said, all who served us were absolutely fantastic. I never leave reviews so for me this is a first, that's how impressed I am. visited Banyan Leeds on 16 Jun 2017

Beautiful food. One observation however - I regret booking a table as it was far to noisy inside and we left early as a result. visited Banyan Leeds on 15 Jun 2017

Food lovely. However, we were dining in our lunch hour - table booked for 12.30 - and even though the restaurant wasn't full and there seemed to be plenty of staff around, it unfortunately took 20 minutes for our drinks order to appear (6 cokes!) and our meals eventually arrived (after chasing the staff) at 1.20. An underwhelming experience. visited Banyan Leeds on 13 Jun 2017

We arrived at 2pm for a Sunday lunch to be told there was a 40minute wait on food which at least kept us informed. Starters which included bread and olives took over 30 minutes to arrive. Staff were doing there best not sure what was going on as it did not seem to busy, may have been a party upstairs. The sunday lunch I am afraid was average not bad but not good. visited Banyan Leeds on 04 Jun 2017

Our table was booked for 1pm and we arrived early. We had to asked to order some drinks rather than a waitress come over to us. Other customers then arrived after us but were asked for their food orders before us... we then had to ask to place our order. It then took 1 hour and 5 minutes for our food to arrive, with no apology or warning that there was going to be a wait for food orders!! Nobody took responsibility for this and the waitress then laughed it off by saying 'oh you're sat outside, people just get forgotten about out here' After then complaining to the manager about the poor service we received and the fact we were on a 1 hour dinner break from work it wasn't great that food took over an hour to arrive, we were offered a mere 10% discount off the food bill. I've never complained about the service from Banyan before and this is somewhere we will always go when the weather is nice and sit out outside for our lunch breaks, however, I think next time we will be looking elsewhere. visited Banyan Leeds on 23 May 2017

I have been on MOnday and Tuesday this week. on both occasiosn food and drink excellent. very irritating on Monday when we sat outside that we had to go inside to get our drinks. this despite the fact there was a waiter whose only job seemed to be to tell people to get their own drinks - otherwise he appeared bored having nothing to do. He also had that skill of avoiding all contact with customers by not scanning the tables ever. this is ridiculous. by all means say 'we are a bit short staffed, it might be easier to get your own'. But don't not do table service at all. visited Banyan Leeds on 22 May 2017

Nice venue and staff were accommodating. I am giving three stars as the sharer platter for four was very small, I am skeptical as to whether this is for four people or two? Despite the lack of quantity, the quality was very nice. visited Banyan Leeds on 19 May 2017

We always like going to Banyan. Unfortunately this time two of our main courses were very "oily" and although they tasted good both of us had to leave some due to the amount of oil on the plate. However, when mentioning this to the waiter when he collected the plates, he was extremely helpful and said he would let the chef know. Although we hadn't actually complained when the bill came there was a discount which we thought was excellent and we will certainly be going back. Overall a good meal again. visited Banyan Leeds on 19 May 2017

I did enjoy the experience apart from the very long hair which my friend found at the bottom of her rissotto and I was a little embarrassed when the waitress told me my privilege card had expired, although she did honour it. I have to say that I don't believe the card had an expiry date on it and I wasn't told it had an expiry date when I was given it. I have enjoyed meals at Banyan before so was a little disappointed with those two issues. Hence the 3 stars. visited Banyan Leeds on 05 May 2017

I enjoyed the Salmon powerbowl and the Indonesian curry went down well with my friend, but the Sunday dinner was a bit of a disaster for my other friend. The potatoes were rock hard and looked like they had either been recooked or were done from frozen and the Yorkshire pudding was quite rubbery. I did enjoy cocktails outside after our dinner and the olives and bread to accompany them. visited Banyan Leeds on 23 Apr 2017

The staff were friendly and helpful. I had requested a window seat when I made the booking. The receptionist had told me she thought they were all already booked but we did get one. There a good choice of items on the menu.All five of us really enjoyed our meals. The prices are reasonable. It was my third visit, but for some others the first. We all said how much we enjoyed it and will certainly go again visited Banyan Leeds on 22 Apr 2017

Had a fabulous birthday evening in Banyan and was looked after very well by front of house. When we arrived we were taken straight to our table upstairs and given complymebtary drinks with it also being the 1st anniversary of a Banyan in town. I am a regular at Banyan in toy shay and have been going there since it very first opened as Napa and was there on the first opening night.,This chain is very well managed. visited Banyan Leeds on 21 Apr 2017

We booked this for a birthday meal for a large group. As we were a large group the food was pre-ordered online. There are small improvements that could be made to the pre-order system, such as ensuring that all options are available for selection e.g. the steak pie has the option of mash or chips but there is no prompt for this online so to specify you have to add a comment, similarly when ordering steak it would be useful if it asked you how you wanted it to be cooked rather than having to include this as a comment. Staff were helpful in advance and on the night. The menu has a good variety so there was something for everyone and the food was lovely. Good selection of drinks and a good atmosphere. This was our first visit but we will be back. visited Banyan Leeds on 18 Mar 2017

Very poor service. We reserved a bar area for 1.30pm until 4.30pm, arrived 30 mins late and was told in a very matter of fact and rude way by the guy on the door that they had given it away to someone else as we were late. He also lied about trying to contact me (he said they had tried to call twice and left a voicemail which was untrue and said they had emailed me - again untrue) to find out where we were. I appreciate you have time stipulations you have to adhere to, however we were 30 mins late to a bar we had reserved for 3 hours for 14 people. We will never use your bar again as we felt we were treat very very poorly. I wish I'd have got the guys name as there would have been an official complaint going into to management if I had. visited Banyan Leeds on 18 Mar 2017

I hired the upstairs private room for the afternoon on Thursday 2nd March 2017 whereby the majority of my 21 guests came from outside Leeds - in particular, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham. We initially met in the ground floor bar, where we quickly got served and soaked up the early lunchtime atmosphere. Without any pressure, we moved upstairs to our private dining area, with the long table set out for everyone, and staff available to take our drinks and food orders. We were well looked after all afternoon and had no pressure to leave. It made for a very relaxed and friendly afternoon, made all the better with great food, wine and beer. The staff were very attentive and all the food was served together and hot. With the added attraction of the ground floor bar, our party were more than happy to remain at Banyan after the meal, staying for more beers until around 9.30pm. All have since confirmed that it was an excellent place - and ideal for a gathering such as ours - especially with it being so close to the railway station and most of us having to catch a train home at some time that afternoon/evening. Thanks again to you and your staff for making it such a successful and enjoyable event. I will certainly be booking you again. visited Banyan Leeds on 02 Mar 2017

The service was fab and the food was lovely. Overall experience was really good! However, when the waitress took our orders for food and drink we didn't ask for water and she asked us if we would prefer sparkling or still. We assumed that this was a standard that water was brought to the table but when we got our bill we were charged £3.50 for the bottle of water which I thought was quite cheeky. Sort from that, it was a very enjoyable everning. Thank you visited Banyan Leeds on 04 Feb 2017

This was my second time at Banyan. I brought my brother here because I had such a pleasant experience the first time. This time however was not quite the same. We made a booking for Saturday at 5.30 and when I walked in to the restaurant it felt like I was at a football stadium! It was so loud and rowdy that I couldn't even hear my brother speak. Conversation was futile so we just ate in silence (we were silent that is, the room was ridiculously noisy!) Now for the food, this made up (sort of) for the terrible ambience; the veg Kingdom burger was delicious! I ordered the Mediterranean focaccia sandwich, which was not a sandwich but rather a burger - it just tasted like a whole load of roasted vegetables all placed in focaccia that lacked flavour. The sweet potatoes were decent. We also ordered the brie wedges which we're so disappointing! Thank goodness this meal was 50% off because I would never spend over £6 on a starter of just THREE small chunks of fried brie (I was expecting a small plate of wedges at least). Finally, the sharing platter of desserts was the highlight of the whole meal; the brownie and honeycombe ice cream worked together magically, the pasionfruit cheesecake was sharp and creamy and the Eton mess was a perfect palate cleanser with the sweet custard and sharp berries. What made this evening enjoyable has to have been the exceptional service. Our waiter went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and like we were truly being taken care of. He made the effort of asking us about day before taking our order, he bothered to deal with our dietary requests (of not including alcohol in our dessert) and he sorted out the issue with our bill! Major respect and shout out to Phil!!! The nicest waiter I have ever been served by to date :) visited Banyan Leeds on 28 Jan 2017

Had the Asian Salmon salad which was so good. The cocktails however were fantastic. Staff were all really nice and helpful. The only downside to the visit was the group sat next to us. They were so drunk they dropped a glass of wine on the floor which splashed all over my coat. They were barely able to hand me a napkin to dry it off. So great food and drinks but their clientele isn't great. visited Banyan Leeds on 24 Jan 2017

Very nice birthday evening spent with friends, staff were friendly and helpful and the service was to match. The food was lovely and with the 50% January discount the value was made even better. Some felt the drinks were a little steep in pricing, however said discount did help to cancel this out. Would definitely visit again. visited Banyan Leeds on 04 Jan 2017

Staff were exceptionally pleasant and courteous despite working over NYE. The food was all perfectly portioned and presented in a lovely way as well as being delicious. Slight mix up on the mains order (it was a very busy time of year) was rectified kindly by the manager. All in all a lovely evening! Don't be afraid to try here on a night you expect town to be busy as they accommodated for our late booking well! visited Banyan Leeds on 31 Dec 2016

January offer of 2 starters & 2 mains for the price of 1 is a great deal. Food,-generous portion sizes, Service -was quick & efficient. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Would most definitely recommend Banyan for your next lunch or evening meal.. Remember to book for the 2-4-1 offer! visited Banyan Leeds on 02 Jan 2017

It was a fabulous night and the service was fantastic as usual. We go to Banyan quite a lot and this was a great experience. I would have given it 5 stars it it wasn't for the fact that an email I received stated that the night would be ending at 2 but we were rushed to hurry our drinks and be out at around 1.25 then had to wait 35 minutes outside for our reserved taxi at 2.00am. visited Banyan Leeds on 31 Dec 2016

Food and service was good. However the evening on a whole was very poor, no count down and New Year's Eve atmosphere felt like I was at a Banyan staff party while the customers were ignored. Won't be visiting again. visited Banyan Leeds on 31 Dec 2016

Great Christmas works outing thanks to the staff at Banyan, very organised and professional from the moment we walked in - to settling the bill. 24 men to keep in check is some feat but Banyan handled them well. Food was excellent service impeccable considering the large party. Thanks for a great time, would highly recommend to family and friends. visited Banyan Leeds on 16 Dec 2016

I can honestly say the cocktail making masterclass we had at Banyan Leeds was the best team night out we've ever had! From the bar staff (Anthony and Dan became honorary members of our team for the night!) to the venue and the food, it absolutely exceeded our expectations!! The cocktail making was completely tailored to us and the type of group we were and there was nothing the staff wouldn't do to accommodate us. The food was superb, especially the vegetarian option and definitely something we will be coming back again to enjoy. All of us here at The Individual Agency agreed, it was a fabulous night that we would recommend to anybody and can't wait to do again in summer!! visited Banyan Leeds on 19 Dec 2016

Unfortunately Banyan couldn't get it right when it came to dietary requirements for a member of our party, despite pre-ordering and having lots of email conversations in the weeks beforehand. I appreciate Christmas is a busy time and it's not easy when people have very specific dietary requirements, but this is why we were very clear about it when we booked. This person's main arrived last, and wrong, then came back later, still wrong, and everyone had finished eating by then so she just had chips. Her dessert also came a long time after everyone else had eaten theirs, despite bring pre-ordered too (I'd have thought an extra effort would be made to have got that to her faster, after the problems with the main course). Banyan did knock the cost of the person's meal off, and also gave her a bottle of bubbly to apologise, but only after we said their offer of a free dessert to take home wouldn't be sufficient. The waitress was lovely, but some of the members of our party found the manager a bit dismissive and think more could have been done, for example a percentage off the bill. It did affect everyone's experience, not just the person who didn't get what she ordered. Unfortunately I don't think I would return based on this experience, but lots of people did say their food was very tasty, and my cocktail (Banyan Colada) was fantastic. visited Banyan Leeds on 15 Dec 2016

the night was fab and enjoyed by all, even though there was a few mix up's with the drink orders. Staff were great and looked after us well...well most of them did ! most surprising of all and was mentioned by most in my group...food was fab and came out hot, with big group events never had the joy of experiencing that so compliments to the chef and the rest of the team that helped serve some fab food to us. visited Banyan Leeds on 15 Dec 2016

We pre ordered the food, as you requested. The restaurant was busy, however we were the first table to arrive. It was 50 mins before we got any food. Due to this is meant that we had to cancel the deserts as we didn’t then have time for them. There was no apology for the wait or an explanation . The light fitting then fell down on someone, again no one apologised, the response was “well no one dyed” we were then left holding the light until someone could be bothered to do something about it. I understand these things happen, but a simple apology wouldn’t have gone a miss and a bit of good will gesture. We were all really looking forward to our team lunch out as we have always had a good experience at Banyan now we would think twice about visiting. visited Banyan Leeds on 14 Dec 2016

Hello, I experienced difficulties with the pre-order. Despite requesting options for both the Xmas menu and the main menu I was only sent the Xmas menu. I had to call numerous times over the period of a week to get both options sent to me and when I did receive it the pre-order closed within 2 hours so most people could not view the menu! I emailed through my order but one starter was missed when the food was brought. Everyone else had finished their starters when this arrived & it was not knocked off the bill or really any apology received. However, the food & atmosphere was very good. visited Banyan Leeds on 14 Dec 2016

We were a group of ten people and I'd probably say half of us were happy with our food. Those that weren't received cold food and one tough steak. Service was really slow at first though our waiter was really friendly, we waited ages on arrival just to order drinks, I'd say you were short staffed. We've eaten at roundhay and had a better experience so in all we were disappointed. visited Banyan Leeds on 03 Dec 2016

The service was basically shocking! I am so disappointed and it spoilt all of our night! I had booked a table of 6 to eat but we asked if we could add 2 more people (assuming they would put a chair on each end). We were unhappy when we were sat on two separate fixed tables near the bar area as we wanted to all sit together. We asked what table we would have been sat on if there were just the original 6 of us as I doubt they would have had 4 on one table and 2 on another! The waiting staff said that we had only booked for drink and that was why we were sat on separate tables. I had definitely booked for food and shown the email confirmation to prove that. Only after I showed the email confirmation did they sit us down on a table together. In total we waited an hour to be seated which was unacceptable. The food was nice but I am disgusted with the appauling service. I very much doubt I will be returning. visited Banyan Leeds on 03 Dec 2016

Overall the party said it was just 'OK' the people who had Turkey said the food was cold, we had to ask after starters about the Fizz reception which we should really get when we walk in. All 4 steaks were really rare, 3 asked for meduim and I asked for meduim/well and the Trifle had far to much Sherry in. However, my soup was gorgeous the best i have tatsted and the staff were really polite. visited Banyan Leeds on 02 Dec 2016

we reserved a table at banyan for some Xmas work drinks. The location is perfect so close to the station which is why we opted for banyan. The. Bar itself is lovely, loved the decor and the staff were really welcoming and nice. The only down fall was the atmosphere, the music was really really quiet so there was not much of a Saturday night/Xmas/party atmosphere. visited Banyan Leeds on 25 Nov 2016
