Tasty food, would recommend

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.

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

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. I ordered... More

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...

if you go to the Farmers Market and are not in the mood for the amazing Brazilian food that Pampas grill have to offer then go here. Truly Scrumptious!

TIP: Allow 15 minutes for parking; it gets busy on weekends. Singapore's Banana Leaf validates Farmer's market parking, but not the Grove structure parking. We have been to the Farmer's Market several times, but never ate at Singapore's Banana Leaf until today. We ordered roti paratha, satay beef, chicken curry, and laksa soup. The roti paratha is described as grilled... More

I will qualify the title to state that, in my opinion, and for my tastes, there are no very good places to eat in the farmers market. We don't eat meat, and that does affect our choices. That being said, despite the other reviews of "poor attempt Singapore/Malasian foods", I really don't care if it is just like you can... More

A group of 5 Singaporean/Malaysians were there on May 2014 and below are impressions. Laksa- this one tastes something else pretty far away from expected and doesn`t deserve to be called laksa. Cendol- It just has the coconut milk flavors.Totally missing are brown syrup and many essential ingredients.Flavors are nothing close to a cendol. Mee Goreng -doesnt look and taste... More
