Award-winning and individual, Banyan on The Thames at 5-star Hotel Rafayel offers contemporary dishes, from flavoursome curries to modern takes on British favourites. The wood-decked rooftop terrace is great for al fresco dining, or for enjoying a luxury cigar with a glass of award-winning wine.

The Banyan menu consists of beautifully designed dishes, each with a unique combination of complementing flavours, like the unusual roasted duck breast with blueberry sauce and gin jelly. Or try fish and chips with a twist, with fresh haddock in a lime and coriander tempura batter, served with chilli salt chips and a pea puree. Desserts are not to be passed up at Banyan restaurant, with tempting recipes including an indulgent white chocolate and Bailey’s mousse in a brandy snap scroll with fresh mint crème anglaise.

Enjoy fabulous views over The Thames whilst appreciating an afternoon tea in the inviting dining room, decked out with vibrant purples and gleaming wooden floors. Specialists prepare cocktails with subtle blends of flavours at Banyan in London, using sustainable, fresh and local produce, obtaining outstanding results.

    The food was pretty terrible to be honest. The menu has a bizarre universal 50% off every item, which gives a bad impression to start with, like some low quality high street Chinese buffet. The menu might be described as eclectic, but I prefer to call it completely random.

    The meat was good and cooked well, but the composition of the dishes and accompanying sauces was not pleasant.

    The restaurant is tired and the whole thing is clearly a distant memory for the original chef and team who set it up several years ago.

    A little disappointed how long it took to get outlet order in. However once the drinks came, starters followed soon after. Amazing food! Had a lot if choice on the menu too.

    There was no luxury feel to my dining experience. I originally booked the evening for an anniversary occasion, however the staff were not particularly friendly, and food really was not that great, especially given the extreme high price points. We received an offer for 50% off food, which allowed us to afford to dine there, I was expecting a 5 star experience with incredible food, however the dishes were bland and some ingredients were not available (such as the calamari which was in a few dishes on the menu).
