SquareMeal Review of Banyan On The Thames at the Hotel Rafayel

Worth visiting for the ‘lovely location’ & ‘magnificent river views’ alone, this eco-hotel has huge windows that give a wonderful vista of the Thames. There’s also an attractive terrace outside, ideal for summer dining & for ’copter watching (Battersea Heliport is nearby), though the noise can get tiresome. Given the hotel-like grandness of the room, it’s not surprising that prices are steep, though the menu, a parade of global hits, does offer an astonishing choice: from fishcakes to Mongolian warrior lamb, via steak & buttered potatoes to grilled salmon stuffed with Camembert & Parma ham. But the same cannot be said for the service, which, although smiley & sweet, can move from shaky to barely competent.

I went their on Sunday 7th November for my wifes birthday – there were17 of us and we all had a three course meal, with our special offer of 50% off the food. The feedback I received from all the family was it was exceptional value for money and when can they return again. On a personal note I couldn't fault any of the dishes I had. Cromer Crab, Rack Of Lamb and Champagne Syllabub, all beautifully presented and so tasty. Very rarely have I eaten out with so many people and not received a single complaint. A huge thanks to all the staff for a memorable day, the views, service, food and ambiance were top class and even the youngest members of the family were kept amused by the boats sailing by and the helicopters landing and taking off next door. We'll be back. David, Tania & family

We visited for Sunday lunch with the 50% off deal. Whilst there weren't many people there to create atmosphere the restaurant staff were very helpful, polite and nothing seemed too much trouble at all. The food was delicious, not huge portions (which was good) and very varied which was rather nice. we had the crab starter – delicious and full or crab and then I had the fish and chips chich was monkfish in a light spicy batter and a tower of large chips with a pea puree, delicious. We relaxed in the outdoor sofsa to start with and were not rushed into ordering and then a table inside was ready for us when our starters were ready. A lovely location and I would return, perhaps mid week evening for a little more of the atmosphere.

I depend for my food and culinary ventures on Michelin series of guides or Zagat Survey that compiles consumer comments instead of using professional food critics. It is so far regrettably neither being rated by Michelin nor Zagat; after yesterday evening gala it definitely deserves a very strong rating for what I call a high class food served with some very special care to technique of cooking. Banyan is situated on a unique summer sunset south west alignment that offers perfect sunset, though it is a new player on the London scene it has some greatest of views of London Thames river water line and sunset. Incoming tide and regular helicopter landings makes it a very panoramic place. Views alone don’t sell restaurant, there is where this place comes on top, the quality of food and service. Steaks and accompanying paraphernalia of sauce and vegetables are usually most difficult to cook, for me the way Banyan presents the two in a nice treatment associated with a reasonable costs makes it an attractive propositions, I think great selections of wine add certain another nice dimension to peculiarity of the restaurant. No service charges and absence of hidden surprises like expensive water is the best attraction, I liked the purified bottled free water bottle under ‘brand name of Rafayel is a great effort to save Thames from plastic bottles.This entire experience makes Banyan so unique, once fully discovered this hidden gem will soon become Mecca of culinary delight.
