A short walk from the hustle and bustle of Castlefield, you'll find one of Manchester's best kept secrets, The Banyan Tree. With its understated, elegant decor and laid-back ambience, anyone who enjoys the Northern Quarter's chilled, contemporary vibe will feel at home. Is it a cafe? Is it a bar? Is it a restaurant? Well, it's really all of these. It's whatever you need it to be.
Typically, you'll find business meetings, social drinking and evening dining happening at the Banyan on any given day of the week; one often blending seamlessly into the other. Its appeal is built on two main factors: serene surroundings and high quality food. Not overblown, fine dining; English classics with an Asian twist - and a long, long way from 'pinged' pub food. This is the Banyan's ace in the hole. The Banyan's creative kitchen team provide an ever-changing selection of 'specials' to compliment their standard menu of simple dishes made interesting.

The restaurant has a casual atmosphere with a sense of open bar and restaurant feel. Small yet relaxing and casual. The bar persons were easy going and friendly. We ordered some food, burgers, noodle special and curry with rice. The food was very tasty but I felt my curry was a ready made microwave type so that was a bit disappointing to eat out. Overall is nice.

The menu was not the same menu as shown through open table, it was extremely limited. However our party settled on the panko coated aubergine salad, the Cajun burger and the banyan currizza. The salad was enjoyable, the burgers Cajun coating was soggy and the currizza, which came with one of the curries of the day on top of a naan bread and melted mozzarella was cold. We notified one of two members of staff at front of house and this was dealt with straight away and very professionally. The rest of the party had finished eating by the time my dish was returned but it was kindly removed from the bill at the end. For this I would probably return, although it's more of a brunch time place, don't be swayed by the online menu.

Since the beginning we were told that the half of the main dishes is not available anymore. So, we had a choice between 6 dishes. My husband choose a chicken, but after the waiter came a second time, she said that chicken and all sunday roasts are also out. So, the only two dishes left were a burger and nudels. We both went for nudels. The food was ok, not wow. The starter was very very small. Just three prowns and a little bit rice. I will never pay 6,95 £ for this amount. The main was ok. The service was fine, but not extremely friendly. The overall experience was mostly damaged by the very small choice of food.

I showed the other menu to the staff who said it must be their sister restaurant Superstore, in the city centre. When we arrived we realised the menu was again nothing like we expected, but as it had been at least 90 minutes since we were supposed to eat we just stayed. Superstore wasn't too bad, but the whole thing was a bit of a shambles.
