There are some great views at the Hotel Rafayel's in-house restaurant - it's right on the banks of the Thames, just up from Battersea. Floor-to-ceiling windows maximise the gazing opportunities, but the al fresco roof terrace probably proves the plum spot.
There's certainly plenty of variety on the food menu, with the evening a la carte offering dishes ranging from katsu chicken strips, chicken tikka, Cromer crab and Thai-style prawns to fillet mignon, baked honey-glazed whole sea bream and a 'lamb duo' of seared cannon and shoulder of lamb with a red wine jus.
The wine list features a decent selection by the glass, complemented by bottles taking in well known vineyards from worlds old and new. Cocktails comprise well-known classics, including a number of martinis – available in the restaurant or the chic-looking Crystal Bar and Lobby Lounge.
Our stunning riverside location along with the choices of a varied menu of selected Euro-Indo- South East Asian flavours bring Banyan to the forefront. From the English charm of the Banyan Fish and Chips, other delights are the exceptional 200 gm English Steak, Mongolian Lamb or Honey Glazed Sea Bream. Dining with nice lounge music and cocktails from an experienced bartender is the perfect climax to a day.
In the summer months enjoying your meal al fresco adds another gentle element of gracefulness to your day. It is a romantic setting, as well as a great family place where children can watch helicopter landings as they eat from their own tastefully developed children’s menu.
If you are a Cigar or Shisha aficionado, our outside river terrace provides ample opportunity of enjoying a good Havanan Cohiba or a special Egyptian shisha. You can also experience a 360 degree view of London on our 18th floor roof terrace with our security accompanying, if requested in advance
And it is not just about food- spending some time here is an entire experience; as one observes the changing tides of the river Thames you will see boats passing by, oarsmen in their rowing boats preparing ahead of the prestigious Oxford Cambridge race, trains going by at a distance and a helicopter landing comprising of a fresh bunch of celebrities arriving from Heathrow- to sum it up, Banyan is a happening place.

As usual my meal was of a very high order, to the degree that I oprdered TWO starterd before my main as I simply couldn't decide between the scallops & the crab cromer which both went down a store on 'Fish Friday'. My main of sweet chilli prawn s with egg fried rice was great & moorish. :)
My favorite destination for business trips in London.
A nice and calm environment with a beautiful view on the Thames.
Best for afternoon tea and a smoke.
I didn't have dinner there but Lunch was delicious.
A lady called Aga at breakfast is an elegant and nice person.
Hope to go back there soon.

Second time here and our dinner and the staff were just as lovely. Generous portions of tasty food served by a genuinely friendly, professional team. Tonight’s highlights included a supreme mojito and a fragrant Thai green vegetarian curry. Very happy 😊
