New Fave Malaysian Place

We came shopping to Kits on Canada Day only to find that most of the stores and restaurants were closed. This place was open so we decided to try it (lots of Malaysian patrons was a good sign). We shared the small Hot & Sour soup which was plenty as a starter for two people - I'm not a fan... read more

The Malaysian food is excellent here. I try to eat here every time I'm in Vancouver. If you're in a hurry, the appetizers are excellent and plentiful.

Had a nice lunch here today. Good service and atmosphere. Busy place. Don't miss the Roti and Nasi Goreng. Great beers on tap and so many options on the menus.

We normally go to the Kitsilano location, but our friends suggested this one closer to Oak St. The menu was pretty much the same and food was wonderful, however the service was not too good, my wife and i ordered two dishes and rice to share - one dish came and the other one followed about 10mins later, we were...

My husband and I are staying near this restaurant and have been for Dinner twice. On both occasions we have received excellent service and delicious food. Our waitress remembered the conversation we had two weeks prior, knowing how busy this restaurant is we found this to be very special.

A friend recommended this chain - and he was right. The menu was full of mouth-watering choices at very reasonable prices. We enjoyed a three course meal, cocktails and a bottle of wine for about £35/head. Staff are friendly. We turned up without a reservation and it was busy, but we only waited a few minutes before we were seated.... More

Went here tonight with friends. Had a great meal. We have been travelling for a couple of months and is was the first Asian meal we have had. It was excellent. We eat a lot of Asian at home and this was every bit as good as we have. The staff were friendly and efficient. Food came quickly. Was beautifully... More

An amazing taste experience, I went for lunch one day with a friend and the next day I went for dinner with another friend. We each chose one item and shared with each other, there was not a wrong choice. The dishes were flavourful, the staff courteous but not cloying. Both times I was there it was busy but we... More

Banana leaf has a good location in a nice area of town, it was close to my hotel and I have never tried Malaysian cuisine before this visit so after reading a few reviews I thought I'd give it a whirl. The staff were very friendly and service was prompt. The waitress helped me make sense of the menu and... More
