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.
