Banyan Tree (The)
The days of Indian restaurants just serving 200 types of curry in small, takeaway-oriented shops seem long forgotten at The Banyan Tree. The modern interior looks more Mediterranean than traditional Indian, as tiled floors, yellow walls and timber tables illuminate the surroundings. The smells from the kitchen remind the visitor that the food is on its way, with various spices in the air. The Indian cuisine includes dishes such as Chicken Mince Kebabs (AUD9.50), Beef Vindaloo (AUD17.50) or Fish Curry (AUD19.50).
I live in Teneriffe and frequent The Banyan Tree weekly, either dining in or takeaway. I have always found the staff to be extremely helpful, the food amazing (all of the spices are sent over from India) the prices reasonable and the layout extremely relaxing and ambiant. I think also that one thing stands out with this restaraunt is the fact the owner actually delivers all of the food, while managing to be front of house for most of the night as well, so that he can get to know his customers...show me another dining experience like that and I will maybe think about trying it out!
