My family and I have never had Malay food but when I saw the photo of the fried rice, I knew we had to try it. The service was great, the guava juice was awesome. I highly recommend the sampler platter and the chicken. Lunch specials allowed us to try a variety of things on the menu.

We went to Banana Leaf with some friends under their recommendation. It was okay. Not outstanding, but not bad either. Most menu items are for family style eating. That is alright as long as all diners agree on dishes. Service was very good. Pleasant flavours, but a couple things were almost bland. Food is certainly not cheap.

Late night dinner at their Westend location. The restaurant had a special sampler dinner that really had unique flavours and showed the versatility of the menu. Very good service, warm and eclectic atmosphere. Although we only stayed in Vancouver 5 days, we almost went back twice in that timeframe just to eat there again.

Went with my friend for my bday. There was a 10 minute wait to get a table but we weren't bothered about waiting. It was well worth it though. We ordered the 9 course taster! Everything was delicious. I highly recommend the 9 course tasting menu if you are stuck for choice. We had the lychee cocktail. Again very good... More

Excellent flavourful meals. Larger groups are best for evenings as everything is a la carte and can get pricey... lunch specials include all you need for a great price. Fried bananas a must for dessert, perfect for two.

It's a bit pricey especially on an expense budget but the shared meal for supper is fantastic and so many different flavours for the palate.
