So many food choices but wanted something light. Tried the Rojak...pineapple, green apple, bean sprouts, jicama, spinach, tofu mixed in a sweet, spicy peanut sauce. This was a tasty dish but needed a little noodle or rice to soak up sauce and balance the sweetness. I would like to try other dishes... read more

We would have probably gone to our usual falafel place but we were with friends that took us to this place specialising in Malaysian and Indonesian cuisine, and it was fab! Service was friendly and efficient, menu very clear and varied, and good drinks as well. They did a fantastic veggie curry with rice, which I could have eaten platefuls... More

My wife and I had lunch here. We both ordered the laksa noodles. This was the worst laksa noodles that we have ever had. We have eaten authentic laksa noodles in Singapore many times and this place was just pathetic.

From all the good reviews we were looking forward to eating some delicious Singapore style food in LA. However many Of the dishes we ordered were lacking any spice or flavor especially the beef rendang, the fried rice and the noodles. They also had a mango drink that tasted like the pulp mix you can purchase in any asian grocery... More

My Malaysian husband wanted to try food from his home area. Tasty food, reasonable prices and quick service. We liked it so much we asked for some takeaway food to bring back to out apartment for breakfast the next day. I had the Rojak and veggie me goreng. Husband had the fish curry. Our 9month baby also ate the food... More

Although we visit Farmer's Market regularly when in L.A., this was the first time we had seen this particular establishment, and decided to give it a try. Very glad we did! The fish curry was excellent, and my companions enjoyed their respective noodle dishes. Altogether, a very pleasant dining experience at an extremely reasonable price.

If you are looking for something to eat at the Farmers Market in LA this is a good choice. My wife and I basically had the same dish, her with noodles and mine with rice. It is prepared while you wait. Both dishes can served on a banana leaf which gives the restaurant its name. There are places to sit... More

I always often visit the Farmer's Market and I always wanted to eat at this restaurant, I ate at this place yesterday and was disappointed to find that the cashier was not friendly; he rushed my friend and I when we were trying to place our orders and he didn't put in the order for my friends drink.

Being raised in Singapore, and having lived in the LA area for many decades, I am always on the hunt for Singaporean food. We have tried Banana Leaf 3 times, just to be sure, and we agree that it is a poor attempt at Singaporean food. Service is not friendly ever. No smiles, no chatting, nothing. Prices are high for...
