The Thai Food was as authentic as eating in a Thai restaurant in Thailand. We had the roasted duck red curry which was awesome. Cooked with right amount of spice not overpower the taste. Basil fried chicken was good. Deep friend Pomphret with three taste sauce was very good. The ambience is very nice. The place is well decorated

Had Thai curry and some starter there, taste was very good, very attentive staff. Chef informed us that they use herbs grown in their own herb garden, whatever it was, food was really good.

The Banyan Tree is a must-visit if in the area or staying at one of the Taj Hotels. Although a little pricey for the local average the food was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service was all we could have asked for.
