About The Banyan Tree - Ellesmere Street

Dear diners, please be aware that non-Quandoo vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with online booking. If you wish to use non-Quandoo vouchers, please contact the restaurant directly.

Diners heading to Castlefield for a meal are always spoilt for choice, and those stopping by The Banyan Tree on Ellesmere Street will be bewildered by the options available just in this one restaurant. Their menu is simultaneously international and quintessentially British – a lot like Manchester itself – with classically British dishes such as fish & chips and cooked breakfasts taking up spots next to more modern influences, such as a daily rotating curry choice and spiced kofte meatballs.

The restaurant was very nice, it wasn't too busy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing, great value for money and really tasty. Presentation on the desserts were exceptional. Would go again.

Nice staff and good atmosphere. Lovely food, enjoyed the quiz - but would be great if you got a raffle ticket when you purchase a drink rather than having to remember to ask every time.

The staff were absolutely lovely, the food was amazing - I ordered the chilli chicken curry and my boyfriend ordered (I can't remember the name of it) beef on Pitts bread with mozzarella on it and it was so nice I had to steal half of his when he went to the loo. An acoustic band came on at 7.30 and really added to the great atmosphere of the place. I would 100% recommend to anyone who wants a great night with amazing, well priced food.

Groupon deal main course and pudding cost £18 food was good staff excellent it had a nice atmosphere ad I would recommend. To be honest the establishment cant make any profit with these voucher deals but we would go back again if we were in Manchester and pay full price. Thanks fur a nice meal.
