Every Banyan Tree resort endeavours to serve authentic and hearty cuisine that features locally sourced ingredients grown at or around the resort. We passionately believe that soil-to-table cuisine honours local heritage and culture, and delivers more than just nourishment to the body - it is Soul Food.
