Authentic & tasty!

This was our second "Banana Leaf" experience, having eaten at the Denham Street one last year, but we were told by our local friends that this one is the "original" store. The food was just as delicious, and the ambiance was cozier, possibly because it was smaller. We were too late for the crab... read more

Banana Leaf is a Malaysian Restaurant. We had dinner on a weekday still it was very crowded. We had Rice, Chicken, fish and Pork. The pork dish was the best dish for me.

We went out for dinner with friends before attending Theatre Under the Stars at Stanley Park. We appreciated the hospitality and courtesy extended to us by the staff. Service was quick. The food was great. The price was reasonable.

We have been bringing our twin 3 year old boys here about once a month. They cank( get enough of the Roti and Chicken skewers (beats chicken fingers hands down). We take the tasting menu for 2, always consistent and always fresh. One of Vancouver's best eats for the money. Staff are always friendly. Gotta Eat Here and each location... More

My husband and I agreed to celebrate in advance so we decided to try Malaysian food. We had a blast! We went home satisfied of the food and almost can't move because we were full. We love the food and will definitely go back soon together with other family members when we feel like dining out.

It used to be quite reliable in their food and ingredient selection, today however, during lunch, we found the rice to be dried, the chicken satay cold and dried ( they did replaced after we complained), simply not what we expect from previous experience. Maybe management needs to spend more time at this location.

We live a couple of hours away from Vancouver and every time we come down we make sure we stop at this restaurant. It is constantly delicious with great service. We've eaten at different Banana Leaf locations and they're good but these guys on Broadway just get it right every time. The lunch specials are great and affordable. Highly recommend.... More

We celebrated our last evening in Vancouver at the Banana Leaf. The food was excellent and they were very accommodating to my egg allergy. It was definitely our best meal during our stay.

Bit oily for us but fantastic flavour. There was a lot of Malaysian folk which is good, they were busy. The staff were very alert and attentive to guests. We over eat :-)

We went here on the recommendation from review on Trip Advisor. We loved it so much for lunch, we arranged my husband's birthday dinner here. The food was AMAZINGLY delicious and it suited our vegetarian son very well as much as the meat eaters.
