All of us had a curry dish for mains plus pineapple rice and coconut rice. Cocktails were lovely. Otto was our waiter & he was very friendly. Food was inexpensive but... More

My cousins recommended this place to us and we were not disappointed! The service was good and overall atmosphere was very nice. For appetizers we got beef lettuce wraps that were so tasty and a large portion. The Roti Canai was amazing- a MUST order! For dinners we got Kung Pow Chicken (best I've ever had), short ribs special, lamb... More

We found this place by accident. We were looking for another restaurant when a passerby asked us if we were lost. When she learned where we were going she suggested that we go to Nanana Leaf which was a block away and we could not have been happier. The service was good and the waiter was patient with us since... More

After having had a great experience at the Banana Leaf in Vancouver's West End, we decided to try this location on West Broadway. We were there for lunch and although the place was very, very busy, the food and service were just excellent! We opted for the "Perfect Lunch" selection and received three wonderful dishes and a side of rice.... More

One of the most interesting and scintillating food experiences I have had ... this makes me want to get to Singapore and Malaysia and SE Asia in general even more (I have never been). The service was professional, fast and very friendly ... they even recommended the Japanese restaurant we ended up heading to later for dinner. We had the... More
