Ate at the Kitsilano restaurant twice in November. Both visits were great and the food without fault. Highly recommend.
I have loved Malaysian food since I first visited Singapore in 1989. Unfortunately, in the city where I live there are very few opportunities to eat it. But Vancouver, blessedly, is different. With multiple locations, Banana Leaf is only one of the Malaysian restos in the city. While it's not the best Malaysian food I've ever eaten, it's very competent,... More
Delicious spicy food and good service made this restaurant worth recommending. You should like spicy food, but there seemed to be a lot of choice on the menu.
We had a delicious meal here on a Saturday night and shared main dishes with two other people so we could taste a variety of dishes. We are vegetarians (but do eat seafood occasionally), and, although this is not a vegetarian restaurant, there were sufficient choices for us. Everything was delicious. The food was not particularly spicy, but the dishes... More
Being Malaysian I have pretty high standards for Malaysian food. I'm entirely unsure why a cosmopolitan city like Vancouver can have generally such poor Malaysian food but that might be because Vangroovy is a relatively small city.

there are 5-6 restaurants of this name in the Vancouver metro. The foods are like fusions including Malaysian, Chinese, Thai, Indonesian and Indian.

Years ago I learned to eat Mee Goreng in Bali. Lunch today at the Banana Leaf brought back those exquisite flavours. Service was excellent, and cost was very reasonable. Will definitely be back!
There were 3 of us for dinner and we ordered the “9-Course Tasting Menu” at $30 per person. There is a minimum of 2 people required for the 9-Course Tasting Menu. The 9 courses consisted of 4 appetizer samplers, 4 entrée samplers, and a dessert. First course was the Mango Kerabu, a shredded mango salad with a sweet and sour... More
Met by the friendliest staff our lunch at Banana Leaf was our first in Vancouver. And it was the best! Splitting the "Perfect Lunch" for two we shared what can only be described as some of the best Malaysian food I have ever had. Seriously, I have eaten all over the world (check out my profile) and this place was... More
It's the best South East Asian Restaurants in Vancouver! I have been here many times as my tummy is not as big as my desire to eat all those yummy food! I have lots of favorites: Malaysian curry laksa; gado-gado; roti canai, satay; sambal chili prawns; seafood char kuey teow; Malaysian seafood noodle in spicy turmeric cream sauce; nasi lemak... More
