Made us all happy and full...

Our family of five enjoyed the selection at this intimate, friendly place. We had beef, lamb, salmon, chicken and scallop dishes and all were very flavorful. The curry scallop dish was our favorite... And the nice waitress who was born and raised in Vancouver gave us great service!

I love this place… Excellent service, FABULOUS cuisine, GREAT staff, amazing ambiance, all in all a must in Vancouver. Limited parking and very busy (sometimes you need to wait 10-20min) on weekends. WORTH THE WAIT!

The food at this place is outstanding, and the prices are great for the quality of the food. We got the 9-course sampler that included fish, shrimp, mussels, lots of veggies, chicken skewers, mango salad, and more for $30 a person. Every single dish was great. The service was exceptional. They were incredibly fast and they cleared and wiped down... More

Recently dined at Banana Leaf for the first time. Nice atmosphere, fast and friendly service, and the food was delicious!!! My only complaint is that being a vegetarian, I found my choices were limited.

I read the reviews on Trip Advisor which helped me choose this restaurant. The place was busy when we arrived and we were lucky enough to get the last available table. The service was friendly, but the food was just a little disappointing. I think it didn't help that we have a fantastic Malaysian restaurant just near our house which... More

Visited during a recent trip to Vancouver. We stumbled upon this restaurant when looking for a Thai restaurant when the restaurant we intended to go to was closed (this restaurant is not Thai). Definitely a good find! There was a good crowd on a Thursday night. The service was good and the atmosphere is cozy. We ordered the 7-course sampler... More

I would give another star to this restaurants. We tried the 9 courses meal and it was so good. So tasty and original. If I ever go back to Vancouver, I'll go again, maybe twice ! :-)

We used to be regulars at the broadway location, that is until they raised the price of crab to $60+ and we said that's enough of this foolishness. At $45 it was already a overpriced, so we would go on Thursdays when it was on special. Sorry for the rambling, back to this location. I've been there about 4-5 times... More
