Scrumptious Malaysian Food

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... read more

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

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

Ok ok, nothing highbrow about this place, but I really like it anyway! With an excellent variety of veg friendly options, BL is a great place to grab a quick lunch or chat over dinner. Service is professional and quick, food is well priced and tasty!

We were strolling on Robson Street, admiring the sights of various Ethnic restaurants. We were hungry and it was time for lunch. It was our first time visiting Vancouver. Yelp did not work because we did not enable international cellular service. The menu of Banana Leaf looked good and the place looked pleasant, so we decided to try our luck.... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Banana Leaf. The food was a little different from Thai, which we usually eat, but was still just a little similar. Ate a delicious curry with Tofu, a decadent fried broccoli, and a lamb dish that was quite good. Crowded on a Tuesday night, when all the other restaurants were empty.
