2 for 1 at Banu at The Colonnade

The Colonnade Hotel is a luxury hotel, superbly located in the heart of Maida Vale, with a contemporary sense of style that extends into its illustrious dining venue, Banu.

Now accepting the tastecard, members calling in advance with their card can indulge in all manners of divine Middle Eastern and Persian cuisine at an incredible price, regardless of whether they're staying at the hotel or simply stopping by.

Tantalise the taste buds with one the superb starters, such as the scrumptious mirza ghasemi, soft roasted aubergine adorned with a fried egg and a garlic & tomato sauce, and the delectable chicken olivieh, diced chicken complete with gherkins, a hardboiled egg and an olive oil enriched mayonnaise.

Continue onto the main course, where a host of heavenly Persian options adorn the menu, as well as a few classic British options for those with a less adventurous palate. Particularly merit worthy meals include the irresistible zereshk polo, chicken cooked in a saffron & tomato sauce and finished with wild barberries and crushed almonds & pistachios, and the hearty bamieh, stewed okra finished with red peppers and saffron rice.

An incredible spot from which to celebrate a special occasion, Banu at The Colonnade Hotel is sure to provide an enchanting dining experience every time.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available throughout December, on Bank Holidays or on Celebration Days including, but not limited to, Valentine's Day, Mothering Sunday, Father's Day, etc.

    I have been here a few times and I can honestly say they have lovely Persian food. I am Persian myself so I have had my fare share of testing out various restaurants, but this by far is cooked amazingly especially the meat and rice is delicious too!
    Great service from the restaurant every time we have been there.
    Atmosphere is clean and it’s a very quirky restaurant and different from the usual Persian restaurants out there which we liked a lot too!
    Thanks Banu, keep up the great food! "

    It was perfect for our first time using tastecard. One of the female waiters here was very attentive and was knowledgable of the usage of tastecard (forgot to ask her name) so the payment process was smooth. The discount was substantial in which a true and real 50% off the bill was given. The overall service and the food here were exceptional. "

    I came here on bank holiday and they are very busy. When I did the booking,the person forgot to ask my name or number for reservation. When we arrive,they have trouble checking for our reservation. But the manager is very nice and managed to find a spare table for us immediately. Quite nice experience. "

    " It's the second time I go to The Colonade for Afternoon tea and it is a great experience each time.

    The Champagne was fantastic and I was with a group of 6 other people including a great connoisseur from the Champagne region!

    We had a lovely time, some of us non-tea drinkers were given the option to have another hot drink and were not charged extra.
    Lovely surroundings in the conservatory.

    The customer service was truly great and we were even given vouchers while presented with the bill to get an even better deal than 1/2 price!

    Impressed with it all, will definitely go back and highly recommend. "
