Away from the hustle and bustle of our city, is situated a place which will lighten up all food lovers' eyes and churn their stomachs to yearn for some grub. Madras Banyan Tree is an Indian restaurant which presents famous recipes and platters from the four states of South India. It unveils the secret of South Indian cooking to satiate our taste buds with some famous and some not so famous dishes.

As you enter this restaurant, you will observe the traditional Indian decor which is not only pleasant on eyes but also makes the entire experience more memorable. You can also get a peek into small yet meaningful customs of South India while you enjoy your meal here.

This restaurant is not just another Indian restaurant serving the famous and commonly found Mughlai food. It rather takes you on a ride to the Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, and serves authentic and delectable cuisines from each of them.

You can indulge yourself in variety of dishes like Dosa, Idli, Uthapam and Vadai, not forgetting the rich selection which is also offered in rice. Be it mouth watering Biryani from Andhra Pradesh or the tangy Tamarind rice from Tamil Nadu, everything on the menu is prepared to create a scrumptious experience for you. Vegetarians and non-vegetarians can equally whet their appetites at this place and return home with stomach filled with food, and heart content with the taste. For the bottle lovers Madras Banyan Tree offers Beer, Wine and Spirit on its menu card, so you can now eat, drink and make merry.

It is mostly open for dinners from Tuesday to Sunday and if you are a late riser, then you can enjoy a hearty brunch only on Sunday afternoons. It also undertakes special bookings for lunch on Fridays and Saturdays. Apart from its usual schedule, the restaurant takes catering orders for various functions like birthday parties, weddings, ceremonies etc. To avoid any disappointments remember to call up the restaurant and make your bookings.

Since this place is away from the city, the best way to go there is by car. However if you enjoy train rides then you can get down at the Moorabbin railway station, which is just 4 minutes walk away from it. Bring that someone special, or just hang out your friends and families on a weekend and pamper yourself with the exotic taste and aromatic flavours from the culinary specialties of South India.
