I have been here many times and always had great food and great service. My last visit was Friday 5 Jan when unfortunately I was ill. I am not sure what made me ill but what I am sure about is the reaction I got from the staff !! Our server went for the Manager Matt who was absolutely fantastic although I was so embarrassed. Nothing was too much trouble for Matt who refunded us for the meal - he was very sympathetic and understanding of my situation and was genuinely concerned that I got home safely. The following day Matt called to check I was okay and had got home also offering to refund the taxi fee - which he did 2 days later when I called in. Without a doubt I would not hesitate in going back - I am not sure if any other places would have treated me the way Matt did so a big thank you from me. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2018-01-05

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit as per usual. The fifty percent off in January was most welcome. The luxurious fish pie was very tasty although a little dry maybe due to the large portion size but usually a little moister in other restaurants. Was still tasty though.

My visit was absolutely amazing. The customer service was outstanding and I cannot recommend Banyan highly enough. I am on a strict gluten free diet and I was very impressed by not only the wide range of GF dishes, but the care and attention that the waitress and chef took to ensure my meal was served to the correct guidelines. I was also given a complimentary starter as my GF meal was taking longer to prepare than normal. Both myself and my partner had a lovely evening there and I only wish there was a Banyan in Liverpool! If I lived in Manchester, I would be there all the time. It really was fantastic and I have already recommended it to gluten free friends. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2018-01-02

It was our first time to the restaurant. When we arrived 2 female members of staff stood at your entrance. The didn’t great us with a smile or any interest. 1 of the girls took us upsatirs(As we were eating) we sat down as she was saying something whilst walking away. I asked what she’d said?? She then came back and flung my partners menu at him. Not good at all.... by this point none of us wanted to stay. So we left to eat next door. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-31

We were a party of 7 and the food was very good, however we had to wait quite a while between courses despite the restaurant not being very busy. Stayed in the bar area till the New Year, although not able to celebrate it because they closed the bar between 23:45 - 00:15 without any warning. Ridiculous, so left at 00:15 and went somewhere else. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-31

Beautiful decor, great music and atmosphere. Food was quite good, tho' satay sauce was poor. Our table was booked for 5pm; it was fairly quiet due to post Christmas lull so unfortunately very disappointed with service. There were 3 in our party and we had to ask for everything twice, with long waits, even for the first drink. Can't imagine how slow it is when it's busy. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-29

Overall we had a poor experience. From walking in and not being acknowledges by the waitress stood right next to the door, nobody taking a drinks order for 20 minutes, the food in general was average, we finished drinks and had to keep shouting to the waitress to get her attention. It just felt like a really lazy attempt at customer service on Christmas Eve. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-24

The food itself was absolutely lovely however despite a pre-order, we were brought half of the wrong starters which meant eating separately. This was addressed by management with a discount when we explained we weren’t happy with the disjointed meal. A second comment is that the starters was tiny, one mushroom is not a starter, especially for the price. Finally the cheese board was awful. It looked as though whatever leftovers could be found had been chucked on a plate, served with a spoon! The staff did their best to makeup for the mistakes and as I said, the food itself was lovely but we would not go again or recommend it. It just felt overpriced for the small portions and a bit messy. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-21

Food good. Service very slow. Waitress unattentive and absent much of the night. Only 1 bottle opener which kept being reomoved. Had to keep chasing for drinks ordered. No crackers on table. Drinks pre-ordered not on the table when we arrived. The bar had not had a wine delivery and didn't have Pinot Grigio or Malbec. I think in the circumstances, the bar staff could have physically gone and bought some. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-18

Overall, we enjoyed a happy family get together and the room was large enough to accommodate us. There was plenty of food and it was very tasty. The staff were very pleasant, positive and helpful. My feedback; The room was poorly lit so created a sort of dingy atmosphere The high tables and chairs made it difficult for our less agile members and there were not enough chairs Although the person assigned to us was very positive and helpful, despite offering to take our drinks orders she was never around to do so. As a result most people went to the bar where there was a big queue There was no buffet table so the food was placed around the room on the tables resulting in people being less able to mingle. There wasn't a lot of variety in the food and having hot burgers is a great idea except when they have gone cold. The vegans in our group felt shortchanged In the groups view and there were 50 of us, we feel we would not come back again next year because it fell short of our expectations. It may be ideal for other groups, ie office parties but not for us. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-09

As we are a charity & this was our Christmas party, we were offered a complimentary glass of fizz for everyone on arrival, unfortunately this didn't happen and when I arrived later in the evening & requested it, it was then brought round but didn't have the same effect. We did not have a mini bar in the room which I was told we would when I booked in the summer, and although the waitress was great, she seemed to be on her own for most of the night & service was therefore very slow. We were also told that the venue had run out of red wine by 8pm in the evening (which they later rectified). The food was good but I had hoped for a larger selection/variation from the list provided, I also requested a separate plate for a vegan, which ended up being just a few items of what were already on our tables anyway, & were charged extra for this. Overall everyone enjoyed the night, but the food & service did let it down a bit. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-14

Booked for a party of 9 on a Saturday two weeks before Christmas so I expected it to be mediocre as most places are. In general the food was ok, but probably a little overpriced for the standard of food. We had a range of items from burgers to steak to pasta. Most were ok but we had to send the pasta dishes back twice. Cocktails were ok but again quite pricy at £8 a go and there was more ice than drink. Our table was Inside the Corn Exchange but outside of the main restaurant in a courtyard type environment. Being two weeks before Christmas everywhere was extremely busy and with people in other restaurants to the sides and above you, it was extremely difficult to have a conversation with anyone other than the person next to you. It was also very cold. Not only did most of our party keep their coats on for dinner, we had to ask for blankets. The staff were really very nice and helpful, despite how busy they were and we couldn’t fault them at all. Our bill for two courses and drinks for 9 people was £270 All in all I would say it was just ok. I probably wouldn’t choose to go back as there’s much better places in Manchester to spend £30pp. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-09

My colleagues and I had booked a few weeks in advance for lunch. We arrived and were seated on the balcony upstairs. Such a lovely place. It was my first time at Banyan and we all had such a great time and were seated in the perfect spot. The food was incredible. The service was good but the food order was wrong. However it was rectified promptly. Can't wait to go again. Well done Banyan! Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-02

Pretty poor first experience. Ordered starters straight away, so we could get the ball rolling. Also ordered drinks. There were 9 of us, celbrating mine and my 10yr olds birthday. Took 45 mins for drinks. So ordered some more straight away. We got an apology for the delay and told next lot would be quicker, still 20mins or more. When food came, there was a meal missing which turned up quickly but without the chips, which came when I had almost finished the meal. When we had paid, we realised we hadn’t had the deposit removed from the bill. Not very impressed Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-02

If I could leave no stars I would. Table booked and food pre ordered weeks ago. Got there on time and shown to our table 45 minutes later we asked how long our food would be. They didn't realise it was pre ordered ., even so they hadn't been to take our order. Manager apologised offered us a round of drinks. We were driving so had alcohol free cocktails. Food arrived eventually wrong order on one meal he went change them be never came back with them complained again and got 50 % off the bill. Anyway overall not impressed and won't be visiting again and that goes for all 5 in the party. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-12-01

Hi, I booked a table for a special Saturday lunch with my Mum, we were seated towards the back, we were near the kitchen, not the best table considering we had booked when many other customers were walk up's. The food took over 30 minutes to arrive and that involved me asking where it was. When the food arrived it tasted ok but but it was cold, it had quite obviously been waiting on the serving hatch for some time. The kitchen staff and the waiting on staff need to communicate better and get the food out quicker. Customers on the next table to us left as there food took way too long to arrive! Overall the atmosphere has always been nice within Banyan hence why I chose it for an afternoon with my mum, we have visited a couple of times for lunch and it has always been good food and service, but not this time, I don't think we will return after this last experience. A shame really. Rachel Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-11-18

The food was slow to arrive however, the waitress did apologise and explained it would be another 5 minutes. She immediately asked if she could get us any drinks whilst we were waiting and ordered a bottle of beer and a Diet Coke. Most restaurants would give these 2 drinks free of charge by way of apology but not Banyan. When my side salad arrived the rocket in it was a mixture between old wilted rocket and fresh rocket. Although the waitress did replace it with seasonal vegetables very promptly, I shouldn’t phage been served this in the first place. When she brought he bill she was pleased to say the manager had authorised 20% off the price of my main main.......£2.80 was deducted! The staff were very pleasant and polite, the food let it down.

I booked a surprise party and I was in contact with about 3 different people over the period of my booking. I came in the week before the party and set up exactly what I wanted with the member of staff I was in contact with. She wrote all my specifics down of how I wanted the room and when we arrived it was nothing like. Also I was told I would only pay for the amount catered for which when I got there I told them it was 27 people not 30 but I have been charged for 30. The food was given a time and then came really early. I wanted 30 people sat down to be told not enough chairs for that we had 22 chairs. The lady on the night was very patient with the mistake and brought extra chairs and we noved the room about but Ive paid £47.85 worth of food that I also didnt need Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-11-12

Food was great but the service was slow yet again. Nothing to do with waiting staff, they were helpful and attentive but there does appear to be an issue-either communication between table staff and bar/kitchen or just understaffed. We won't be returning as we have experienced the same issue before and there's a lot of other choice nearby-have to get it right first time with so much competition, you were lucky to get a second chance.

Food was great service very slow but the waitress kept coming to apologies. Got free deserts and discount so did not put us off going back. I prefer to wait for good food then receive poor food quickly. Everyone has an off day x Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-10-08

We booked a private dining room for a special event and were absolutely appalled by both the food and the service. The steaks (which carried a hefty supplement) were all cooked completely differently despite all being ordered as medium - one was completely raw. It was sent back to the kitchen who said it was because the steaks came in different sizes (this was clearly a surprise to them!!..) and then we waited thirty minutes for a replacement steak byt which time everyone else had finished eating. The peri peri chicken was inedible. The skin was on but hadn't been crisped, so was like slime and the sauce on top was glutinous and tasteless - slime on slime. It was disgusting. But by far the worst element was the shocking service. We were assigned a personal waitress to our room and she clearly hadn't had any training at all. A low point was when she stood at the foot of the table of ten people, all who were chatting and loudly shouted "Anyone for a top up?". She delivered the starters to the table, not by placing them in front of people but by sliding them down the table towards people. She reached across people, complaining about the size of the table and also huffed and puffed when serving the steaks complaining how heavy they were before dropping them on the table with theatrical thud. It was terrible. We complained during the meal and they changed waiting staff and refunded the raw steak and gave us free coffees but the bill was £700 so it wasn't a huge concession. I would not recommend the place at all. It was shocking. Steer clear!! Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-09-26

Booked a table in advance, really dissapointed to arrive and be told there would be a 45 minute wait before we could order our food as they had a large group downstairs that they were tending to. We were all hungry and didn't want to wait 45 minutes before we could even order our food so we left and went elsewhere. Needless to say we were really dissapointed, a restauarant should surely be able to cater for other diners even if they do have a big group in. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-09-30

Very disappointing visit booked in at 7.30 was a party of 10 down to 6 due to sickness I spoke to somebody in the restaurant to be told to go to the desk to tell them! Then we were seated at and our drinks order wasn't taken till 8pm. We were then asked to order and we wanted 2 sharing platters to start to be told there's wasn't enough food in the kitchen to have this so had to order separate starters. We asked if we could just have the platters and double up with the things they did have we were told no but half of the things on the starters were in the platters!! We had our main meals everyone got the wrong one given to them. We ordered more drinks and a jug of water the water never turned up. The restaurant wasnt full to capacity and it was an overall bad experience felt very unprofessional and has put us off coming again and wouldn't recommend it. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-09-23

Can't thank The Banyan enough for a wonderful night, from initial inquiry about hiring the private Dining room for a Hen Party of 12, to the helpful and efficient communication leading up to the evening itself and then the friendly welcome, good food and great hospitality on the night, it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend Banyan to anyone. Jess and Mason, thank you to you and your team for making us all feel special, nothing was too much trouble, it was well organised and the night was a great success, and a special thanks to Marianne for her dedication and care on the night, happy and friendly. The Hen was suitably impressed and had a great night. We will be back. Thanks Again Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-09-22

It's a nice place but the food is way overpriced and the menu lies somewhat. I ordered the Chicken Skewer which states it comes with a flat bread - it came with a pitta bread! When I queried this with the waiter, who then asked the kitchen, their response was "It is a flat bread" to which I replied puzzled it is a pitta bread which confused the waiter more as he knew nothing of the (very distinctive) difference between these 2 types of bread and to him the pitta bread was flat so job done on their side. I realise this is probably for you a minor detail but as someone who was really looking forward to a flat bread (I'm on a diet and restricting the intake of bread greatly) with the skewer it was pretty disappointing. So in all the overpriced nature of the chicken skewer and it not coming as described on the menu puts you at 3 stars (which I feel is being over generous). Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-08-31

As it was a lunchtime booking I went to the trouble of pre ordering the food almost a week in advance. However, when we arrived they didn't seem to be expecting us. One of the meals we ordered was not available, and it took 40 minutes for the food to be served. Once we eventually got the food, it was nice enough though nothing special. But our server was nice and friendly. Overall, not impressed. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-08-24

Lovely venue and food was delicious but experience was let down by the service which was ridiculously slow. We (4 of us) arrived at 7:30pm on a Saturday night and left at 10pm (because we had somewhere to be). We only had two courses and were looking forward to dessert but had to miss out. We were sat with empty plates for ages and had to go and hunt out staff to bring us the bill. Restaurant wasn't busy so no idea why it took so long. Not the first time I've had slow service there.

I ordered the buffet option for myself and my friends but have to say that I was disappointed with what turned up. There was a lot missing. What we got was more like the sharing platter.. I ordered and paid for 9 but only got enough for 8. I had to ask for the 9th buffet as they seemed to hope that 4 sharing platters would be enough. Apart from that the atmosphere was nice and the staff did keep asking if everything was ok. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-07-08

Thank you very much for having a vegetarian option ready as we ask the day before os the event. Everything was nice and the service was great. The only thing I realised after leaving is that I'd asked for a non-lactose menu and you took off every dairy products from the whole menu so that the burgers had no cheese, no salsa and there wasn't any goat cheese bruschetta which would have been amazing. So please, next time don't punish everybody without wonderful dairy products! Apart from that, everything was right. Thank you very much, Miriam Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-06-28

I love this restaurant because of the area and the food is usually lovely which makes up for the poor service but this time the service and the food was poor. 3 of us had the Sunday roast which is usually really good but this time the sides had just been slopped on the side bowls and the cauliflower cheese had no cheese. The meat was very fatty too. The service was pretty useless, no one seemed to know much about the food, or which table they were taking drinks to, they took ages to take our order and they took down one order incorrectly meaning we had to wait longer for it. Disappointed this time as usually really like it here and the service in the Banyan in Leeds is much better. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-06-18

We hired the downstairs room with the swinging chairs which was fine however not everyone was able to order food due to the bar being busy. We also had to queue on a number of occasions for quite a while to get drinks. The room wasn't kept tidy - plates from food we ate at 330 were still in the room when we left and there were glasses everywhere (one of the tables was full). We spent a considerable amount of money on the day and this is a bar I go to on a regular basis so the experience was disappointing. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-05-28

We told the waitress and she supplied another portion. But we have eaten in the Leeds restaurant,and the same happened there.

I visited Banyan with seven girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. Our table was in the centre of the Corn Exchange which had a great atmosphere. The food was excellent and the waitress very friendly. I was even given a complimentary glass of Prosecco to celebrate my birthday. We also enjoyed the 2-4-1 cocktails. Two of our party were not happy with the sweet they had chosen, it was mentioned to the waitress and when we received the bill the two items had been removed which I thought was a very nice gesture.

We visited your restaurant as a party of eight last night. Me and my partner have been several times previously and really enjoyed ourselves, so we wanted to share the experience with our friends. However, we were really disappointed with our visit. Seven meals came out together, one meal came out 10 mins after everyone else's and the side dish for that meal followed five mins later!! To top it off the chicken skewers came out raw!!!!!!!!! There was no apology for the raw meat, it was just taken away and replaced! When it came to the bill, there were four extra dishes on there that we hadn't even had!!! It's a good job we checked through the bill... All in all it was a very disappointing evening.. 😔 Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-05-05

Hello. I visited the Banyan when it first opened and had to complain about the very slow service. Unfortunately it seems like this as not improved. The food is excellent and really has something for everything, but the speed of the service was incredible slow and became somewhat of a joke that night and the rest of the weekend. The drinks took an age to arrive and it was impossible to attract the waiter's attention. One guest asked for ketchup which just never arrived and we were close to cancelling our final round of drinks we had waited that long. Unfortunately I won't be hurrying back or recommending this to anyone as the service really let down what should have been, and could have been, a really good night.

I have rated this on the basis of food quality. Three Tempura king prawns in thick uncooked batter and onion rings cooked in the same batter, they were not good. The waiter knew therefore did not ask the obligatory question how was your meal. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-29

The room was perfect for a hen party and the food was amazing, having our own waitress on hand was great. Everyone commented on how fab they thought the venue and food was. Thank you so much. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-29

Dear Chloe & team A HUGE thanks for the best night! We had the root hired out for my friends hen party and we couldn't have asked for a better night. The way you decorated the room for us (totally wasn't expecting the full works like that!) was incredible and really made us feel special. The food, drinks, service - everything was just faultless and everybody was talking about how great Banyan was and how they were having such a good time. Thank you so much - we will be back!

Superb food, stuck-up staff, poor service. Didn't even have my reservation despite having made it in person only 3hours earlier and having an email confirmation. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-28

Although I had booked online and had confirmation, I was not on the list and they were full. We were found a table but it was a bit embarrassing. No apology was offered, they just said oh yes you are right when I evidenced my confirmation on my phone. Food was average, we complained about undercooked onion rings but they were still on the bill. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-27

Went at 6pm, bar and restaurant not busy but waited over 15mins for each round of drinks. Never got the table water we ordered on arrival until after our main courses. Never served by same member of staff twice. Food ok , reasonable price. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-22

Really enjoyed our meal at Banyan, service was excellent and food was delicious. We had a mishap earlier with a wobbly table resulting in all our drinks falling over, the bar manager couldn't have been more helpful and replaced all of our drinks without hesitation. Would definitely return Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-15

Poor service, hair found in food, waitress accepted responsibility and agreed to credit the food in question however when the bill was presented low and behold we were charged in full. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-03-28

We had Sunday lunch there - a party of 6. Service was a bit slow at the beginning but I don't think they expected to be so busy due to the weather being stunning. We all chose the Sunday lunch menu and it was great value and very good food. My only gripe was the roasties were too hard to cut through but others in my group said theirs were perfect so maybe better food consistency is needed -however, that definitely won't stop me from going back again and giving it another whirl.

We had a great night making lots of different cocktails and the staff were great. The only thing that let it down was where we did it outside in the triangle area. It lacked atmosphere and we couldn't hear the bar tender properly. It would have been much better inside the restaurant where there was more going on rather than outside.

Wasn't a great experince. Service was slow and staff didn't seem to know what to do. Waited 40+ minutes for drinks to arrive at table -asked waitress twice where they were. Mixed review on food, burgers where good, however forgot 2 sides on the platter and had to ask for them both to be added. Also didn't have any falafel on one of the dishes and wasn't told that until food came out and questioned where the falafel was! Would have changed the dish if told that beforehand. Wouldn't go again for food. Think they need to re-train staff. I could understand if it was busy mistakes do happen, however for food there wasn't many people in the restaurant area so there is no excuse. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-08

Friendly service, left us alone while we caught up with each other, but brought the bill immediately when we realised we better move or we'd miss our bus/train home! Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-07

The food was great, loved the decor of the restaurant. The only negative was that is took a while for our food to come, we had to chase the waiter. Having said that I would definitely recommend Banyan to my friends. Visited Banyan Manchester on 2017-04-01
