Welcome to Heritage, Welcome to Madurai.

Be it a corporate lunch, a family get-together, or even a romantic evening the Banyan team will ensure they accommodate and attend to your every need. The restaurant serves both contemporary Indian and International cuisine, with a special emphasis on using local produce.The main dining room has a seating capacity of 90 whilst the semi-private dining area can accommodate up to 25 guests.The 'Swig & Tee' bar epitomizes the colonial club culture of British Madurai. One section of the bar is part of the main clubhouse building of the 1970's, while the new extension features a contemporary bar counter. Situated adjacent to one of the oldest Banyan trees of the resort, the bar is an ideal place to enjoy a sundowner. Just ask the barman for the Heritage Special.The ‘Swig & Tee’ can accommodate 40 people indoors.
