Probably the biggest challenge faced by restaurants or restaurateurs is sustaining their reputation. Commercial demands and en masse catering unfortunately (and many a time, inevitably), affect quality of food and presentation to some measure
We are proud that Banyan on the Thames continues to wow its critics and carved its niche in upholding, if not enhancing, its reputation and unique character of cuisine that goes beyond the cliched catchphrase "east-meets-west!"
Banyan on Thames, London. Very good view of the thames with stylish decor. Service was quite prompt and our maincourse of (monk)fish and chips was very good and the banyan biryani was one of the best i have tasted with excellent balance of spices and chilli heat.
Banyan on Thames, Battersea - A real joy - we took a cousin, lively and a gifted singer in her 70's, to celebrate her birthday with Sunday lunch/ brunch, and had the unexpected bonus of an enchanting, live jazz singer to complement first class food and excellent, friendly service. Restaurant remarkably quiet - presumably it's still building its customer base. Would recommend wholeheartedly - and we didn't even take the 50% offer, because the Sunday Brunch menu was so tempting!

Love Banyan On Thames, 3rd visit and almost want to keep my praise low key so it does not put all its prices up and become too popular. Lovely lighting, gorgeous decor, great views and spacious tables. However its the lovely menu & food which deserves the most praise. Tasty, well presented and good portions. Seared tuna was something special but all of our meals were high quality. With TT offer its a pretty perfect place for romantic meals or a classy dinner with friends. Will return many times
