Great food all round - Edit

Lots of different options, most of which are vegan. I had a 'Three layered heaven' smoothie, pumpkin soup and coconut curry. All incredible. Rest of my group all very happy as well.

Did have to wait a while but nothing unreasonable. Sweet potato fries were a little cold by the time they came out.

Pros: Lots of options, Great taste, Lovely staff

Cons: Small wait for food

Long waiting - Edit

Ordered a juice and a starter papaya salad. 40 minutes went by and people that came after me started getting their foods. I didn't mind the waiting at first since they were quite busy. But now it was getting pretty late.They confirmed my order again. At this point I was getting more hungry and wanted to change my order since they hadn't made it yet. But I couldn't do that. Got my food after waiting for an hour. Very small salad. Had planned to order more food but did not want to wait more. Had to argue to get a discount (10%). Was quite sad about the experience since I was excited to eat here.

Pros: lots of options

Cons: long waiting time

Amazing - Edit

Beautiful restaurant right on the beach front, amazing salads and food, especially the sushi bowl which is the best I've ever had! Have raw desserts if you feel like them as well.

lovely breakfast - Edit

I was here twice for breakfast and had both the pancakes and oatmeal. The oatmeal was amazing! I also had the Buddha bowl for dinner and would defiantly recommend. All vegan options are labelled on the menu. Cute little restaurant with inside and outside seating

Amazing - Edit

Me and my bf are both vegan and we fell in love with Banyan Tree. The breakfast is amazing my favourite was the Chocolate Peanut bowl (and I asked for extra granola with raw peanut butter and toast on the side) his favourite was the Scrambled Tofu. He is allergic to mushrooms and they speak good English and had no problems with changing some of the meals for him.

Our favourite lunch/dinners was the Coconut Curry, so tasty and not spicy as I hate spice! The Jackfruit Sandwich was also incredible as well as the Peanut Tofu Stir Fry (good for spice lovers!!) Also try the Orange Crush drink! 10/10!

Wifi is also good and you can sit inside with Air con or on a lovely balcony overlooking the beach. Can't wait to go back to Gili and visit this place again

Great nasi campur and they have air-con! - Edit

I wasn´t too interested in ordering from the menu here, because they had nasi campur counter here. So next to the cashier they have several dishes that you may choose to accompany your rice: tofu, tempe, sauces and more warm salad -like dishes. Ask which ones are vegan, some of the dishes are actually boiled eggs that strangely don´t look like eggs (they were grey-brown). Nasi campur dishes were very good and better than in the usual non-veg stalls.

I visited here in November 2016 and service was very poor. The staff didn´t smile, greet and they seemed to want to avoid the customers. The Indonesian staff had either no knowledge on which dishes were vegan. I hope they have found a way to motivate the staff or find new people to work there. Because otherwise this was a perfect beautiful restaurant, the building is well built, the menu is great and all.

They also have a salad bar next to nasi campur counter. They have indoor seating upstairs and hooray! air-con. But I noticed one waiter leaving the balcony door open all the time, so he had no idea what is the idea of air-con.

Pros: Very good nasi campur

Cons: Closes early, Staff were very unmotivated to work

Amazing! - Edit

I ordered the tofu curry and it was the best one I've ever tried. It was slightly sweet and slightly spicy in just the perfect amounts. The portion was generous and filling. The seating is upstairs in a nice area. All food items were clearly marked for vegan, gluten-free and a third category which I can't remember. They even have vegan desserts! :)

Pros: food tastes amazing, generous portions, easy to find

Cons: service is a bit slow

Average - Edit

Nice looking place, lots of good seating areas with an upstairs balcony.

But... not very welcoming or enthusiastic, chips not cooked... bland food with bad textures and no real flavour.

Looked and felt very new hopefully it improves soon.
