Booked at 8 ...had starter then it took almost one hour for main meal to be served. 3 meals out of 4 were cold and sent back . Ordered half chicken meal but one of the party had a mis mash of chicken served . Service was first class but very embarrassingfor them . We received one bottle of processco and didn't pay for 3 meals. Having travelled from Scotland we were very disappointed and would have liked to pay full amount and had a great meal.

The team were great. Sorting out some menu changes was no problem, they offered some excellent options and everyone really enjoyed the food and the area we had was perfect. We had some difficulty with the bill at the end - in future I would ask for two bills. One for the prepaid food & drinks and second one for anything bought at the event. We got there though and everyone really enjoyed the event. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-12-23

Emma Swales was very personable and efficient and made booking for a large party very seamless and easy. The team at Banyan Leeds were attentive and were happy to accommodate our request to change some of our event timings. The private meeting/dining room is a great space and we shall certainly consider using it again. The food reviews for our group of 22 were mixed but on the whole positive.

Shocking!! When we arrived there were a group of people who were by our table ,as we sat down they began to leave and left their empty beer glasses on our table we had to ask for these to be removed. I came in earlier and asked for a picture of a colleague who died earlier in the year be at the table before we all arrived this was not done The table was set for 13 there were 15 of us, we had to be moved to get a table extension in, the table was not re set afterwards, we had to do it our self's. There was no table service for drinks at our table, all 15 of us had to go to the bar to get drinks while other people who were in only to drink were also at the bar trying to get served, The security guards were not letting people in as it was that busy. On to the meal Mixed reviews on starter, Soup and also the mushrooms were cold. the salmon was nice. Main meal We all got our food except 1 who had to wait 5 minutes to get their main meal as there was a backlog in kitchen. The turkey was dry, the brussel sprouts were overcooked and soggy as was the stuffing. The parsnips and roast potatoes (if you could even call them roasts) were very undercooked. A colleague has a nut allergy they were not given a pig in blanket as you thought they had a gluten allergy! On to Dessert What dessert? We waited 10 minutes after our plates were taken from the main course, I then had to ask where our dessert was as you had forgotten about us, the reply again was there's a delay in the kitchen. The team decided not to have dessert as they waited too long and wanted to leave. Totally unacceptable service, we spent over £350 for dinner it wasn't worth £50. I spoke to a "manager" explained al of the above we got an apology, and agreed this was totally unacceptable. They advised we would get a full refund of the dessert and 20% refunded off the entire bill today is the 23.12.2017 I've still not received a refund. I for one will not be returning to Banyan my colleagues who raved about you will not be returning. No matter what time of year it is you should be able to serve a group of 2 or 20 people and keep the service to a high level. Banyan did not deliver. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-12-15

The food was delicious. Service was slow when it came to cocktails which was expected because it was Mad Friday. What we didn’t expect was a discount off our bill to make up for it, which was a lovey surprise. Would definitely come again. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-12-22

Just a quick review, in terms of how shocking the service was that we received on Saturday night. We arrived 10 minutes before our booking and was escorted to our table. When most of us had sat down a waitress came over and told us that someone else had used my name as their booking and they had given the table away. I then said there had been a mistake and she went to check again in which another woman came back and apologised and then said she would get our drinks order sorted. Once everyone arrived drinks service was slow resulting in approximately 35 mins for everyone to get the drink they ordered. I want to make it clear that we booked this table for 8. We didn't actually receive our food until 9:45. When we had eaten etc, it took almost another 30 minutes to sort the bill. From them not taking the £50.00 deposit off, to adding extra's to the bill that didn't even come. To top it off once everyone had paid and we left, a waitress came out and told us we had underpaid by £11 and in the end I ended up paying the bill, so my friends were annoyed I'd paid even though it was my Birthday and they all had the agreement, between them they would cover it. To say the least this ruined my 25th birthday celebration and I will not be returned. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-12-02

Banyan is a class venue, great for food & drinks. I was a little disappointed that, after paying for a booking in advance, we arrived to find others in our reserved area and had to wait 15 minutes to be welcomed in. That issue aside, I would still recommend Banyan and will be using there for further events, though I will be stipulating my expectations even more clearly at the time of booking.

Myself and two friends enjoyed lunch at Banyan as Art of a birthday treat. The service was good but with some slight variation between waiting staff, we shared a starter, throughly enjoyed the super salad bowls and ended an enjoyable meal with excellent brownie and coffee. A note for the future, it is very draughty sitting on the table next to the door. However, I have every intention of returning again. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-11-11

After eating at Banyan at least 6 times before we were extremely disappointed on Friday night. Our previous visits were lunchtimes or early evenings which were very good. But Friday night was a disaster, the food was not of good standard, the room was cold and the music was far too loud for anyone to have a conversation. Perhaps Banyan should make it clear to all diners that music will be played at that level when booking. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-11-10

Unfortunately we were quite disappointed we our recent visit to Banyans Leeds. Before making the booking I checked the menu as my daughter is quite fussy and I wanted to make sure there was something she would enjoy. Roast chicken Dinner was on the menu with no mention of what time till so I booked with this in mind. I also mentioned it was her 14th birthday hence the reason for the visit. Firstly, no Sunday roasts were available at all.....the waitress said they finish at 5 then she said they finish when they are sold out! Well it was hardly busy and only 6pm so I hardly think they were “sold out”. Second, we ordered a starter of humus and breads which was forgotten then came after our main meal arrived. The steak in the pie was chewy and the pie (which 3 of us had) wasn’t crisp leading us to feel it had been microwaved. And third, there was no mention of my daughters birthday (not that we were expecting anything) but a little mention might have been nice for her! So yeah, all in all not a great first visit to Banyans at all. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-11-05

Service was great, the food was excellent and really enjoyed it. The only constructi9ve feedback I would give is that the bar is always quite loud, so when your having a meal its difficult to hear what people are saying even when we were located on a small table in the corner. I think on a Saturday lunch time people just attending for drinks is fine, but very drunk people shouting and chanting across the room can give a bad image- but obviously this is nothing that would ever jeopardise me visiting again we had a really nice meal!

I booked for a party of 19 for my birthday and from the start they were really helpful, responsive and communicative. They accommodated for changes in guest numbers and dietary requirements and the pre-order system meant we had more time to chat and relax instead of the craziness of ordering on the night. Phil was our waiter for the night and he was BRILLIANT! The perfect balance of friendly and professional, and a great laugh. He was really helpful with pushing back the first course while we waited for the last guests to arrive. The barman also made me his signature cocktail which was gorgeous! The setting was lovely and the food was good. The only thing that I would like to see is them advising of the dress code when booking as a couple of friends had to explain they were attending a booked birthday event to get in! All in all a great experience, thank you. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-09-29

I have to say the evening was extremely poor.! The bar itself was extremely busy which I can appreciate on a Saturday evening. However, we were upstairs supposedly out of the way. It got to about 7:20pm our booking was at 7pm I had too find out what was happening as no one approached us to direct us where to go etc. The bar attender seemed unprepared for us, like he was unaware of the booking, which was made a month before the event. Their seemed nobody in charge overseeing the event, I had to move our balloons etc to the bar as there was nobody to help as promised on the telephone earlier that day. For the price I was expecting an experience, a chatty, welcoming & entertaining barman/maid. The barman lacked any personality or enthusiasm , He did not keep the event flowing and it was like pulling teeth. He kept disappearing & serving the rest of the bar drinks. I lost half the girls attending my friends 30th as they had no clue what was happening and were basically bored. He was not forthcoming with what was happening next, how to make cocktails, when he wanted us to come round the bar to start the next one... nothing! we had to keep asking what we were doing constantly. Which is ridiculous when you are supposedly paying for a "masterclass" which costs over £200 .... pretty appalling. Some of the party had experienced cocktail classes at Revolution etc and said yours was terrible compared too theirs. Not what I expected at all. Thought it was very poor for the cost & I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anybody. Extremely disappointing & over priced! Which Saddens me as it was meant to be an enjoyable celebration for my friends 30th birthday. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-09-30

We were very disappointed with the service. The waiter seemed almost uninterested if not very/tired/drowsy when taking orders and answering questions. He was finding it hard to stay awake! After an hour of us finishing our food nobody had come to our table so I approached the bar. The waitress said that she had just done the hand over and she wasn't told about our table. She then brought the bill over by the discount hasn't been taken off so I again after waiting 10 minutes for someone approached the bar and asked for the discount to be taken off. The food and drinks were lovely, as was one of the managers who changed my drink as I didn't like it. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-09-28

Lovely first experience here. Very well organized. Provided a pre order as we had a large party and they had everyone's needs catered for, and served in a timely manner. We were able to have a private area of the restaurant making it all the more special. Food was lovely, service very prompt, and staff friendly, prompt and accommodating. Would definitely recommend so give it a bash! We will be returning and thanks for making my hen do and my mums 70th birthday a pleasant experience 😀 Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-09-23

Really enjoyed our recent visit to banyan Leeds city centre. When booking the table I mentioned that it was for a 40th celebration and was very pleasantly surprised (as was the birthday girl) to see our table had been decorated with balloons and confetti. Thank you!!!! Our waiter (Phil??) was excellent, we couldn't have asked for more. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-09-01

I had my wedding day here and could not be happier how everything went. Andrew Strugnell was the man! He took everything in his stride and made the whole experience stress free as he shouldered whole responsibility of organising the whole thing. He always got back when I needed him to would meet whenever I wished and really left me confident about the day. The food was absolutely amazing with all guests saying it was one of the best wedding meals they had had. The service on the day was faultless from the Canapés to the poring of the drinks everything was taken care of. I love Banyan and the team at Banyan are second to none. Thank you so much for the best day of my life!!! Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-08-12

My friend and I booked Banyan for 15 people for our graduation dinner. We confirmed our booking with two different managers at different times before the booking date to make sure to be seated outside the restaurant. We specifically highlighted that we want to book Banyan because of the outside sitting area rather than food as we were not familiar with the food. On the day of the booking, another Banyan manager told us that they can not accommodate us outside, they can only give us a table inside without giving a reasonable explanation. After a long discussion and half an hour waiting time, we finally convinced the manager to be seated outside. There were enough tables and chairs in the outside sitting area and all they needed to do was to combine some tables and chairs for 15 people which took less than 5 minutes. We don't know why the manager created such a fuss not to help us in our booking initially. I must also say that the food was delicious and the staff who took care of the food was very lovely. At the end, we were also given t 20% discount .because of the inconvenienced caused with our booking. Although the ending was nice, I would not recommend the restaurant for group booking.

Fantastic service from start to finish! Booking was simple & the design your night portal made it really easy to pay & pre order all the food. Any request I asked for was responded to really quickly. I'd originally made the booking around February so the menu had changed when we came to order, no issue they let us pre order against the original menu. On the night service was fantastic, I'm afraid I can't remember the name of the guy who looked after us but he was so helpful & deserves a big thank you. A couple of the party were delayed, he made it clear there was no problem, no rushing & he even rang the bar we had reserved an area for afterwards to let them know we were going to be late. Service which went above & beyond! All the food was lovely, lots of positive comments from the whole party of 21 people. I will definitely recommend to anyone for a large booking. Thank you very much! Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-07-01

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 2017-05-22

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.

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 2017-05-05

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.

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.

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 2017-03-02

Excellent food and good service even though the restaurant was very busy. It hasn't got 5 stars simply because the waiter got the drinks order wrong. Having said that he did rectify the mistake quickly and without any fuss. So well done for that. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-02-24

Really noisy to be able to hear properly. Felt the menu was not varied enough.. That may be just me and my tastes though. The staff were very professional and attentive. The food was quite tasty though the starters were pretty small. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-02-22

It was really good, we had the Valentine's menu but the pudding was a massive let down and we weren't impressed. The marshmallows were even hard. But apart from that that it was really nice and the service was great Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-02-14

I'm a big fan of Banyan usually however, on this particular day my experience was not good at all. It took us 25mins to be seated and then a further 50mins for the food to arrive and a coupld of dishes were actually cold. Not the best dinner I've had there. Visited Banyan Leeds on 2017-02-11

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 2017-02-04

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 2017-01-28

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 2017-01-24

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 2017-01-04

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 2016-12-31

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.
