I thought the food was tasty enough, but heavy and greasy. Both my friend and I felt sick the next day--and I pretty much have a cast iron stomach (never actually get stomach aches). Not sure what they put in the food--I'm guessing there is a lot of oil and maybe some meat fat (I am a vegetarian). I don't... More

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.

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.
