Overall layout and atmosphere was typical of a club. Excellent child minding facilities available.
Service was adequate although a little slow..
Menu choices were not as described on a flyer..

Steak had obviously been sitting for a while before served to the table.
Chicken boccocini was bland.

Disappointing. Haven’t been for a bit hoped improved. Not. Service very ordinary. All more interested in talking amongst selves. Requested certain table as was big birthday. Think we got worst table. Right in walkway. Kids meals ok. Cobb loaf ordinary. 2 had steaks. Neither cooked as requested. Not particularly tasty and bit chewy. Mushroom sauce and pepper sauce no flavor. Salad not particularly fresh and again ordinary dressing. Not good enough. Think we will give up. It used to be so good with great service and tasty food. Shame as kids love play area. And that is well done.

Meals Are Ok. Some very nice some not to everyone’s likings.
Avoid the barrel wine. The Chardonnay and the SavBlanc are very very dry and tend to make the eyes water

Overall it was a nice outing

After being seeded we were literally forgotten about.
It took more than 30 minutes to order our meal and another 30 minutes for food to arrive.
Also had to go back to the bar and get my own drink as waitresses after admitting she forgot about us left as I was asking for a drink.
She did manage to look after the table beside us who were seated after us and it didn't matter what we did we couldn't attract her attention.
This was the birthday drawer night but there were plenty of empty tables.
Both mine and my husband's birthdays were being celebrated and in all honesty this ruined our night.

I ordered the chicken parmigiana. It was tasteless & dry. The other people at my table ordered the Pork Belly & enjoyed it,

What really spoilt the night was the deafening NOISE. I appreciate it was a Saturday night, but the nightclub is too close to diners.

IF I go back, it definitely won’t be a Saturday night.

Overall the dining experience is always of a high standard & we always find the staff very pleasant & efficient.As a matter of principal i seldom rate at the highest as that doesn't leave room for improvement, but if there was a category between very good & outstanding I would've gone there for most categories.

We always love Banyan Restaurant at North Lakes, its the only place we have enjoy a peaceful meal knowing that our kids are being well taken care of at the kids explore. The girls at kids explore are fantastic, keep up the good work. The chef is always on point and the dessert tower is always all our favourite, it never disappoints.

The live act is, sadly, usually a little loud. Especially if you’re seated in the first hal of the restaurant. The food was very good and I would order again.

We always enjoy coming to the club for lunch or dinner. The lady who served us was called Helen and she was very happy and friendly and looked after us beautifully. The only thing I would recommend is a bit more gluten free options, such as a garlic bread and some pasta dishes. Other than that it was a very pleasant experience.

Awesome food every time we come here nice and clean we had an enjoyable time. The only thing I can fault was the person taking our order her vibe was off and she didn't look like she wanted to be there... I'd understand if it was busy and she was stressed but it was only 3 tables occupied including ours..

I would recommend to a friend in regards to the food. But unfortunately in regards to service, it would be hard to recommend.
I attended this restaurant on the 8th feb for lunch with a friend to celebrate my birthday.
The food was average but the service was wonderful. Two different days, two totally different experiences.

As we are only new members we didn't realise how busy it would be on a Sunday. And how 'frazzled' the staff would also be. After such we thought we would go and sit in the coffee area and have our coffee's there....its a tad too small an area for relaxing in. No chairs left in there at 1-00pm.

We came in for my birthday dinner just for two our table right next to the reception desk so was not relaxing Monday was the only option for sports club and it just happened to be a kids eat free night which meant it was noisy. It had atmosphere which was good for families not for couples.
The service was quick which has vastly improved since club first opened and the food also has improved as well but we felt due to the fact we didn’t order desert our plates were whisked away and we had to settle our account before we had finished our drinks so we vacated the table and tried to find somewhere else to sit of course most table were all taken due to raffle. So felt like eat and run canteen.
