Great place to eat had a nice night, unfortunately the sweet potato wedges were served cold but this was quickly resolved and fresh wedges were brought out. Also there was discount given from the final bill which was kindly accepted. visited Banyan Manchester on 21 Feb 2017

Needed somewhere cheap and cheerful for a quick bite to eat and catch up with friends. First impressions were good, friendly staff, good decor and atmosphere. Prices were reasonable and the food was very tasty. The only downside was the service was very slow, we waited a long time for the food and as we were sat near the open kitchen, it looked like the chefs were just talking and taking their time! But overall a good experience and I would recommend that you give it a try! visited Banyan Manchester on 17 Feb 2017

Food amazing. Booking system terrible though. 'Booked' on line Saturday night, received a reply saying not confirmed......... Confirmed Sunday night at 8.30 7 hours after I arrived for my table...... As a consequence we had to wait until about 2.30 to eat. I'll be back but the booking system obviously not up to scratch! visited Banyan Manchester on 12 Feb 2017

Unfortunately it wasn't anywhere near as good as my last visit! I recommended this place to my friends and it was our first night out in a year since having our babies so we were really looking forward to it! I booked the table over a month ago and when we arrived early for our table we were told our table was ready however it was right near the front door in the bar area and after me booking the meal over a month a go I explained I would prefer a table in the restaurant and our request was kindly accommodated by the kind host. We were seated however we waited almost 15 minutes before anybody took our drink order then we had to ask again for someone to take our food order even though there seemed to be plenty of staff standing around the kitchen area a lot of the time. We ordered some breads to share as a starter and 5 main meals the food was lovely as usual however the service was shoddy! We requestes the bill and when it was brought over there werw several items listed that we had not had we told the waiter and they went to check it and came back with another bill which was still wrong so they asked another member of the team to help and they brought over the bill for a third time and it was still wrong! We then asked for the manager as we had been sat waiting for nearly 40 minutes waiting for this to be corrected the manager came over and edited the bill for us with no apology for our time that had been wasted. We arrived at 7pm and we we're still there at 10.30 waiting to leave and for the bill to be rectified we told a lovely waiter named Pedro that we had received no apology for the several issues we had faced that evening he then went to see his manager and he kindly discounted our bill. We will be back for the food as it is delicious I just hope the service will have been improved and no doubt we will request to be looked after by Pedro who could not do enough to help us we just wish he was there from the start and maybe this review would have been a whole lot different. visited Banyan Manchester on 11 Feb 2017

Great venue and atmosphere. Staff were really heloful efficient and friendly but not overly so. Good range of food fairly priced for a city centre. Steak cooked properly rare. Pasta fresh and tasty. Burgers juicy and stacked high! Will go back x visited Banyan Manchester on 10 Feb 2017

Food and service was good. Prompt service which we needed prior to our Arena show. Found the noise levels difficult to hold a conversation in our party of 4 which stiffled the experience a little and on paying realised that the offer of 20% pre arena booking which we had reserved under hadn't been deducted from the bill and it couldn't be refunded on the night so we have been left out of pocket. Reluctant to book again. visited Banyan Manchester on 04 Feb 2017

Lovely welcoming service received which is always a bonus taking 4 children out to a City Centre restaurant. However no pens available for the kids to complete the puzzle sheet on the back of the menu which was a bit of a shame!

I have visited the Leeds branches hundreds of times, with the Roundhay branch being one of my favourite restaurants when it was previously Napa. I was a little disappointed with the service last night. Everything was very slow, we waited ages for our order to be taken, my boyfriend and I then had a cocktail spilt on us (accidents happen) but then later on we were delivered 2 other cocktails. I thought this was a peace offering unit I realised this was just for another table and the waiter had got it wrong. These drinks were then put on our bill even though they were never ordered. I can't fault the food or drinks but was very disappointed with the service. visited Banyan Manchester on 24 Jan 2017

I visit often for drinks but this s not my second time having food. I visited with a friend prior to a concert at the Arena. We were seated promptly by the side window at the front of the restaurant on the Cathedral side. Nice seat but no mobile signal. Staff made 3 visits for drinks and water orders, but I had to ask to be able to order. I ordered the Black and Blue burger with sweet potato fries. The bun and burger was nice, couldn't really differentiate the blue cheese - there was something runny on the burger. Also there were other stringy items on the bun which may have been stringy onions and a long soggy gherkin. Hard to tell in the subdued lighting. Fries were lovely. All in all not a bad experience but I am a huge fan of Black and Blue burger but probably wouldn't order this one again. visited Banyan Manchester on 21 Jan 2017

Not very impressed, this was my 4th visit and I was really disappointed with the service. It was really slow , having to ask for cutlery twice. We wanted to swap onion rings with mushrooms which they said no to even though there was other dishes with mushrooms. Staff didn't seem to care at all. I won't be coming again and I won't be recommending it to anyone in the future! visited Banyan Manchester on 21 Jan 2017

Not a good night. We was booked in at 8pm. We ordered our meal the four of us and at 9.15 we was told that they were sorry for the delay but had two parties in. We was offered 50% off the bill for the trouble. We had waited far too long. To top it off my daughter was up in the night being sick. Not quite the night we'd expected, especially travelling quite far for a nice weekend break. visited Banyan Manchester on 14 Jan 2017

Booked on 50% off food in January offer so very good value. Great and varied menu and food was delicious. Service, however, although very friendly was extremely slow. Had to ask to order and also chase up where our food was. The restaurant was not overly busy so not sure why so slow. visited Banyan Manchester on 19 Jan 2017

Although the atmosphere and service was pleasant, we ordered the chicken skewers which arrived uncooked! We were shocked as the look and smell made it obvious it was not edible. My friend then had to wait for something new so had to sit and eat on her own as we'd all finished. We then had to request to have it removed from the final bill! Unfortunately this has put me off ever returning to the Banyan! visited Banyan Manchester on 18 Jan 2017

We attended NYE as we had done in 2015 which was a great night, but unfortunately this year the service did not seem to be as good although it was OK. Referring to customers as guys is not appropriate in a restaurant setting. The loud music was just too loud for dining, that may be appropriate later on in the evening however it spoiled it for us. The food was excellent as it was the year before. I would not book for NYE again and we have avoided coming more often due to the volume of the music. visited Banyan Manchester on 31 Dec 2016

Enjoyed our lunch immensely. Good food and good drink. Reasonably priced. We had children ranging from age 2 to 10 and the menu accommodated them well. One negative was that when we arrived we were not shown to our table immediately despite the food area being empty. We were asked to wait in the bar. Which with 6 children and a buggy isn't really ideal. Then when we got to our table there was a delay in getting a drink order meaning we needed to go to the bar ourselves. I suspect they were short staffed because once staff did see to us they were very attentive (perhaps waiting for staff to come on shift at 1pm?) That really was the only real negative of a otherwise excellent afternoon. Tim Lavin visited Banyan Manchester on 02 Jan 2017

Had a great event for the works do, everyone enjoyed it especially the upgrade to a private dining room, a fantastic space, and a vibrant atmosphere. Food was great and definitely made a change to have the Christmas buffet rather than just another sit down meal. All the event staff were great, Thanks to Chloe and Jess who helped me organise the evening. A special thanks to our waitress on the evening very approachable, fun and relaxed. Definitely would recommend Banyan Manchester and use you again. Thank you so much. visited Banyan Manchester on 15 Dec 2016

Very very slow service. Server didn't know who had ordered what hence giving her an order sheet which I had devised myself!! Christmas food average. Nice place but doesn't know how to cater for large parties around the festive period. Would welcome a goodwill gesture as on the whole was a bit of a let down, shame really. 1930hrs booking for 12 people... visited Banyan Manchester on 16 Dec 2016

Arrived and was told our "pre-booked Christmas meal" was to be served to us siting on high bar stools?? This was then eventually changed to a dining table. After this we sat down to realise the water glass at my setting had lipstick marks on it. Previously used glass. Disguising. This was then eventfully changed. We requested two mango moctails and then to be told "no mango available" so we have to have an alternative drink. Not a great experience. No apologies made really from the manager.

Booked a table but apparently, my name (Jake Brennan) wasn't booked even though we had a booking reference, either way, we were given a table but it makes the hassle of signing up to a new newsletter a bit redundant. Also, appreciate that it is a busy time of the month but most staff spent their time either talking to themselves at the registry or having their heads down and avoiding eye contact. visited Banyan Manchester on 15 Dec 2016

Made a booking but didn't know you needed to pre book for Christmas menu and their was no festive menu yesterday . My friend went last week and never pre book for Festive menu so we didn't know we need too. Ended up leaving the restaurant as me and the bf was looking forward to Festive menu . So it was disappointing night as it busy this time of year luckily we manage to go to another restaurant for dinner. visited Banyan Manchester on 14 Dec 2016

We booked in for the Christmas Menu for our works party! Banyan accommodated 23 of us in one of the private rooms with ease! Service was fantastic, food was superb (piping hot, lots of it and loads of choice) and the ambience overall amazing! Can't thank the team at Banyan enough!! From booking in (and continuous email queries from me) Chloe and Jess were amazing. On the day our server, Liam, was excellent. He was attentive, thorough and efficient meaning the night went really well and without a hitch. Pre-order of food with people's order was a genius idea, then collection of payment via website and open channel for queries meant we were as prepared as possible for a great night. Food orders were read out by name (a great touch) and in good time. Thanks to Banyan team for a fantastic night! I would highly recommend the restaurant and the bar and would definitely go back. visited Banyan Manchester on 09 Dec 2016

I booked a table for our work christmas night out. We were advised during the booking peocess that a halal option would be available as a main meal but this was not the case and we weren't contacted to advise of this beforehand, we were told as we sat ordering drinks. We were then offered to select any meal from the main menu for the inconvenience which is accommodating but would have much preferred to have been contacted prior to arrival. I was told that a voicemail was left for me but I am yet to receive this so dubious as to whether it was actually done. We had 2 people drop out yet extra meals kept coming to our table which is a massive waste, some of the meals arriving were not even on our order form. I asked upon arrival for them to provide me with a pen and some paper and I would be able to double confirm the meals for the evening as I could not remember off hand what the people who were unable to attend had ordered. When the bill arrived we had another tables drinks on our bill which totalled to over £80, luckily we noticed this before just paying to leave. The meals for our 2 friends who had not been able to attend had not been removed as promised either. Also our deposit was not removed from the bill, again we had to ask for this to be done. A drink was spilled over one of our party's coat, the manager on duty has offered to pay for the dry cleaning of this coat for us. The manager was apologetic at the time but we were not offered any sort of discount or compensation on the evening for the inconveniences caused to us, a round of drinks would have sufficed as there were not many people drinking alcohol this would have been an inexpensive offer from the restaurant. We had the table booked for 8pm and pre ordered our food yet didn't start eating till almost 9pm which impacted our plans for the rest of the evening. All in all the service was slow, the waiting staff were inexperienced and the booking staff were incompetent. The food was genuinely lovely though, we all enjoyed what we got when we eventually got it and it is the only thing gaining any stars on the review score. visited Banyan Manchester on 11 Dec 2016

Good atmosphere, friendly staff but think they could do with some more tips on gin copas - I had a portobello rd which is supposed to come with grapefruit - it should be the rind but was actually a big wedge. That said would visit again. visited Banyan Manchester on 10 Dec 2016

We came for my birthday yesterday. We were served by Katie who was brilliant. She was attentive and very competent. There was no Rose so we were offered a complimentary bottle, one of the party didn't enjoy her meal so a discount was applied and I received a complimentary drink and dessert as it was my birthday. I will definetly return it was a brilliant experience with first class service. Thanks Katie your a star!!!! visited Banyan Manchester on 11 Dec 2016

We arrived early but were seated immediately. Food was extremely nice but our fries with our main courses were cold and sent back and the fresh ones only arrived after we were nearly finished. One. Our friend s had also virtually eaten his burger when the ketchup arrived. Our waiter apologised and discounted the bill by 10% which as nice of Him. Also when our bill arrived the deposit I had paid was not on it so we had to request another their bill. We will be visiting again though. visited Banyan Manchester on 10 Dec 2016

Fabulous food & fabulous service. Waitress was fantastic. Just a shame the happy hour wasn't on. Think if you've booked to eat then a happy hour should still apply immaterial of it being Christmas & bars/restaurants just want to cash in on Christmas crowds. 3/5 based on not having happy hour. visited Banyan Manchester on 09 Dec 2016

Service was vet poor. We were shown to our table immediately but then seemed to be forgotten . After about 15 minutes we had to ask if we could order drinks. The drinks eventually arrived and then our food order was taken. We all had kebabs and they were very good. I would suggest that the attention to customer service needs to be improved visited Banyan Manchester on 08 Dec 2016

I booked Banyan last minute for my mums 60th birthday as a surprise for 16 people and was helped by Chloe who arranged everything over email. The table was perfect, the restaurant is spacious, lovely toilets and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress called Poppy was brilliant. She was friendly, helpful and really made the night run smoothly assisted when we needed her. She brought a surprise cake out with perfect timing at the end. I would highly recommend for any occasion, the food was delicious and the menu caters for all tastes. Anna Wilkinson visited Banyan Manchester on 03 Dec 2016

Very disappointed . Our much looked forward to Christmas party was ruined. When booking we had requested a special table . On arrival we were told sorry there's nothing on the notes and sat in a completely different section of the restaurant. We especially booked early to take advantage of the free prosecco on arrival. We were asked if we wanted to order drinks and had to remind them Of the prosecco. A very long time later we finally received it and it was delicious! However we then had to ask for our xmas crackers which we had expected to be on the table already. Ordering took ages and ages .. Finally our food arrived. There was a very long gap between our starters and main at least 45 minutes. We asked for more water but never received any. We ordered some wine and had to ask for it twice. It finally arrived just as we finished our main course! When we got our bill they had not deducted our pre payed deposit or discounted us for our appalling service. The food itself was good. The turkey was very nice with lots of it but we did nt get any Yorkshire pudding or additional green veg as the people having a "normal" Sunday lunch did. The desserts were very small . Next time we will just buy a Sunday lunch .... visited Banyan Manchester on 04 Dec 2016

Understandably busy for this time of year but sorry to say none of our group will be coming back. The music was VERY loud even upstairs where we were sat. We had pre-ordered food as requested but then it took over 10 minutes to find our order. Drinks were very slow to arrive With a 7.30pm booking with pre-ordered food by 8.15 and still no food we were then aksed 'what time would we like our starters'??? now would be nice! then the mains took over 20 minutes after the starters finished. Overall the food was very good (slightly small starter sizes for the price) but the service was shocking visited Banyan Manchester on 02 Dec 2016

The service was so slow. We had to wait over 20 mins every time we ordered drinks and when we got the bill also have a 20 min wait, it came without the deposit we had paid so had to wait over again. Xmas demand is high so the operation needs to be set up to be more organised and with attentive staff. Food however was lovely. visited Banyan Manchester on 03 Dec 2016

We all really enjoyed our food, but the same could not be said for the service. Admittedly the restaurant was very busy but when you have to pay a £60 deposit for a table you expect things to be better. We often had to call the waiter over because he wasn't coming over to check on us. Our food order ended up being taken by one of the hostesses on a scrap piece of paper and she still forgot what we wanted. We eventually received the tap water we asked for but had to wait another 10 minutes for glasses to be brought over after the waiter had to be reminded to bring them. When the bill came the £60 deposit hadn't been taken off and we had to ask the waiter to do this. Finally, we were not offered the change from the bill, it was just assumed that we were leaving it as a tip. I've been to Banyan quite a few times before so thought it was going to be a good place to take my family who had travelled to Manchester to visit us. It's a shame that we all felt the service wasn't up to scratch. visited Banyan Manchester on 03 Dec 2016

On the plus side you accomodated us when we had diners who were delayed but overall the service was poor. This was a corporate dinner and I would probably not use Banyan for large groups in the future and would not book the private dining rooms. - We had to come and find staff to order drinks. - Took a long time to get drinks when they were ordered (over 10 mins) - 1 meal was forgotten and was not brought out until everyone else had finished visited Banyan Manchester on 23 Nov 2016

A fabulous restaurant in the heart of Manchester. Set amongst the newly refurbished Corn Exchange this lovely eatery offers a wide selection of menu choices. Unfortunately lots of the menu was unavailable (we think because it had been a busy Saturday) but what we did eat was superb. The setting was great and had a brilliant atmosphere. I'd like to go back on a quieter day. Overall a lovely place that's definitely worth a visit. visited Banyan Manchester on 19 Nov 2016

Celebrated a joint 30th and 16th at Banyan and had a great time. The food was excellent and well timed even though we were in a large group. Only slight downside was that I had preordered food and put a name next to each order but this information was not used which meant I had to spend a lot of time directing the food orders as they came out. That said the waitress was amazing and went above and beyond to help out. Thanks Banyan!! visited Banyan Manchester on 19 Nov 2016

We have been to Banyan a few times and have normally enjoyed it. However this visit was a disaster - there was nothing wrong with the food but the temperature in the section we were put in was extremely cold. We and other diners adjacent to us complained and asked to be moved but the restaurant was full so we had to eat with our coats on. Totally unacceptable! We complained and the young manageress was very apologetic and gave us discount off the food but this didn't make up for a ruined evening. visited Banyan Manchester on 12 Nov 2016

Not the best experience. Initially the booking wasn't recognised, I had the booking ref, and we were given a table for 6 (booked for 2) in the lounge area. Asked for a restaurant table to be told they were fully booked. Then suddenly one came available.. surprisingly there were 4 free tables in restaurant . Toilets out of order and had to queue for the single dialled toilet through the back entrance. Ridiculous for a venue on this size., probably contravenes the council licensing regs. I'll be enquiringly. Good food though. visited Banyan Manchester on 05 Nov 2016

Unfortunately this was my fourth visit to Banyan and I was left quite disappointed because although the food was fantastic as usual a couple of issues did tarnish our experience. The issue with the toilets not being available was a hindrance especially due to a member of our party being pregnant and the drinks service was frustratingly slow and when they did find the prosecco we ordered off the menu it was warm so we had to wait till it had chilled after our meal to open it, I would have expected at least the offer of something to drink whilst we waited for this but we where just left with the water on our table, until we managed to get a server to take an order for drinks to have with our meal. I hope these issues can be resolved as I do love Banyan and hope to return sometime in the future. visited Banyan Manchester on 05 Nov 2016

Upon arriving we were greeted and escorted to a table, after several minutes someone came to take our drinks order only to realise we hadn't been given drinks menus.

We had a complimentary meal due to a bad first experience. Food was superb and staff were very attentive. However the lady on reception was very pleasant until she realised we were having the complimentary meal and her attitude changed immediately. We had not insisted on a complimentary meal but had been offered it by the extremely helpful manager so we were rather annoyed when her attitude changed. I turned to my friend and said "Is it me"? but she said "No" as she had noticed it too. The complimentary meal was a lovely gesture but was ruined by her attitude towards us. visited Banyan Manchester on 27 Oct 2016

Our night was slightly disappointing. Venue was lovely, as was the food. But we came to celebrate my birthday and were going to be charged full price for a bottle of prosecco that was on offer all week & my friend had to send her curry back as the chicken wasn't cooked. They were very good about it, quickly brought out a replacement and didn't charge us for that dish, plus they offered a discount. It just slightly ruined the night.

My boyfriend and I booked one of the private rooms for our joint birthday celebration. The planning and booking process was a bit tricky as we had to deal with various people throughout the process. Some staff members had left the company and we were communicated different information each time someone else took over. On the night our waiter, Cameron, was extremely helpful and should be commended! He was attentive and made our evening smooth and easy (we were in the Roots on the 11th June 2016). We really enjoyed ourselves and so did our guests. However, the end of the night was tainted by the Duty Manager who pulled myself and my boyfriend out of our party on several occasions requesting that we settle our pre paid order!! This was slightly alarming as we were advised to use the online booking system and had booked and prepaid for everything before the night. Everything else was ordered through the bar or Cameron and settled there and then. She even pulled my boyfriend to their office claiming that the system was showing a refund which ourselves and our guests had never received. Overall the venue was really nice and the waiting staff really helped ensure that our celebration went well. However the planning, the break down in the system and the Duty Manager's poor handling of the situation tainted our birthday and made it slightly embarrassing for us with so many guests in attendance. It definitely took away from our celebration.

We went as a group of 11 and over half of us had to change our orders due to certain items not available on the day. The service was very slow and the staff didn't seem to know what was going on. When the food eventually arrived it was actually very nice but slightly overpriced in my opinion for the portion sizes. I wouldn't eat here again as there are a lot of restaurants in the city centre with much better service even at peak hours. David visited Banyan Manchester on 04 Jun 2016

I booked the Well (private room) for my mum's 50th birthday and everything was brilliant from start to finish. All of the staff were amazing and so professional and flexible to our needs. Nuala was lovely to deal with and the team on the day just couldn't do enough for us! We had the buffet food which was delicious and great value for money. It was a relaxed, fun environment just what we wanted but if you wanted a more formal sit down meal you could have that too. The room was great and had a sound system you could plug into just for your room plus a TV screen if needed. Everyone had a great time! Thank you for a great day!

We all really enjoyed the cocktail masterclass with Josh. Explained the art of cocktails & had a good sense of humour. Would recommend this. Good value for money. Does not need to be any special occasion to enjoy it Combesy visited Banyan Manchester on 20 May 2016

I booked The Root room for a surprise 30th birthday for my husband and it was amazing. The staff couldn't do enough from booking to tending to our every need on the night. The room was fantastic and I would definitely recommend it for small functions. Thank you Banyan it a truly memorable night. visited Banyan Manchester on 14 May 2016

What an excellent restaurant! I have been here 3 times now, once for a girls breakfast before a day out, once for a hen party and once with another couple and my boyfriend. very different nights/ days out but Banyan met all my expectations, the atmosphere is chilled yet quite electric and the service and food is amazing! It's a great place just for a drink too and now they are trialing live music it can only get better and better. Worth a visit!! lozmike visited Banyan Manchester on 23 Apr 2016

Myself and my mother went to this restaurant for the 1st time on Saturday 16th April and I was out the moon in trying something new and really enjoying myself. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Central location and the staff were lovely. Evanlaur2 visited Banyan Manchester on 16 Apr 2016

Saturday night for my daughters 18th celebrations. Perfect choice, the quality of the food and the menu were excellent. Amazing cocktails too. Best of all was the service, our waiter was excellent but all staff looked genuinely motivated to deliver great service with a smile... Our drinks waitress overheard us talking about it being my daughters birthday and brought her a complimentary glass of prosecco, which she was delighted at. We also had a younger child with us, and was equally well catered for. We were made to feel welcome and had great service and fab food. Will definitely be returning. Thanks all Jane visited Banyan Manchester on 16 Apr 2016

I booked this place for my birthday and had high hopes. We experienced over priced food, poor quality food, bad manners and incompetent management. An experience not to be repeated. Tania loopytania visited Banyan Manchester on 15 Apr 2016

Went to Banyan Bar for my 21st birthday this Wednesday we booked a private room down the stairs which was called the Well room we had a set menu and a cocktail party in between dishes, i could not fault anything about the full experience from booking the event attending and leaving everything was done to perfection, the food was beautiful, the cocktail party was delightful and the male waiters that served us was lovely and very helpful and welcoming as was the manager Jarvis who booked and arranged everything for us. i would recommend this place to anyone and everyone, for a pre drink before a night out as the bar area is a lovely vibe, the restaurant for food and also private dinning experience. thanks for a great birthday.

Went here for a quick bite to eat before a concert at Manchester Arena. Oh. My. gosh.. it was sooo good. I had the halloumi burger an I haven't stopped talking about it since. One of the girls had the mushroom tagliatelle and another had the teriyaki salmon. Everything was so tasty, and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be going back again A*** sarahgooden visited Banyan Manchester on 05 Mar 2016
