Very Enjoyable

I had a rather good time. Portions were good and the menu is very large. Service was good (but there weren't many people). Really like the after hours menu. Favorite dish: the rice in the pineapple.

Fusion food. Ambience is great for small parties. Portions are small, servers are polite but not friendly. I would prefer tropika for this kind of food, i feel like the value isn't good and you can get better food elsewhere. Heard so much about how good this place is and how it's worth the price, but I wouldn't return here.

I recently enjoyed a dinner at Banana Leaf restaurant. I enjoyed my meal, the appetizer sampler shared with a friend. The soup was a big bowl with a small amount of soup, my colleague was thinking that because of the price, the soup would be a large bowl for a meal, not so. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was... More

Some food is too salty,and some is tasteless, mached with the tiny size dish and long time waiting...what can I say then? Luckly, the waitress is friendly. Thank you, pretty lady, made my time not that bad!^~^

I think I was a little nice and rating Very Good. I would say this it is slightly above average. Very good professional Staff. Good Location. Prices were high but the food taste, food temperature, presentation and portions is worthy to visit this place once during your trip/visit or if you live here maybe once a month in your rotation.

We visit Vancouver several times a year and love this restaurant! Hot and sour soup is delicious, roti, satay, lettuce wraps and other appetizers great and we love the main dishes like mee goreng. Always our fav place to go!

I have always had a good experience with Banana Leaf and make it a point to take out of town business clients or family when they are in Vancouver. The service is hospitable and food has never disappointed. I have traveled to Malaysia a couple of times and must say that the food has lost none of the authentic flavor... More
