Bought a meal for two through Groupon at the Banyan Tree although I had not been there before so didn't know what to expect. It was a bit off the beaten track so we had to drive so my partner couldn't drink but I suppose we could have got a taxi from the Railway station but I had heels on............. More

Off the beaten track of Castlefield central. Nice feel to the place, chicken strips were massive, food all round very good quality. Very nice little chilled bar/restaurant. Would visit again.

Friendly staff, good brekkie & good prices. We've been a few times now as our friends live nearby and we've always had good food.

This is a lovely cozy bar with live music on a few nights. The food is very nice. I had stuffed chicken breast which was delicious. Staff are very friendly and cool. It is a bit away from the centre but if you are around it worth the try.

We went on a Groupon offer with our friends and the food is A class on presentation, quality, and taste. There is a great choice and you wouldn't be disappointed on anything you chose. I have heard several recommendations and it lives up to it.

Had the £18 for 2 offer from groupon (main and dessert) really tasty menu and something for everyone. Struggled to find a parking spot though and area seemed a little rough around a block of flats being constructed. Restaurant was quiet and small but service was quick and friendly. Would recommend.

4 of us came for a Sunday afternoon lunch after purchasing a Groupon Voucher. We had a varied selection of main meals and all were delicious. The deserts were fab with the chocolate brownie being described as the best they'd ever had. Would definitely be back even without a voucher!

My friends and I are still drooling over our two course menu we enjoyed this Wednesday evening. We are proper eaters (eat out in Salford, Manchester and surrounding at least twice a week) and we know when we're getting value and quality. This is a chill little place a couple of hundred yards from Deansgate. The music and ambience were... More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon for coffee and a cake, upon entering the Banyan Tree, greeted by a waitress with blonde hair who promptly took our order.........all going well so far. We ordered tea, coffee and a brownie from the dessert menu (later finding out there were two ways to order a brownie). The brownie which resembled a packet of... More

The Banyan Tree is a unique Restaurant and Bar situated on Ellesmere Street on the edge of contemporary Castlefield. The name is based upon on a tree that is famous in South Asia. In most traditional villages of South Asia, a huge Banyan Tree provides a meeting place for the community. They gather in its shade to chat, relax or discuss important issues and make decisions. We provide a perfect space to meet and relax with friends or business colleagues. Welcome!
