The service is quick and attentive. The food is well seasoned, a bit salty but spiciness masks saltiness. Roti (whichever variation) is a must try! We tried roti prata (curry sauce) and the bread is like a thinly sliced croissant lightly toasted. Open kitchen and casual atmosphere. Family and small group friendly. Affordable at $7 - $12 for most dishes.... More

Not sure what food it is, but seems close to Thai, and we love it! The curries are fantastic, even the vegetarian options!

I have eaten here multiple times for business travel. The pad thai is great - I always order it. The restaurant always seems to have decent traffic so it must be a popular place to eat.

My wife and I went to Banana Leaf recently and we had a great dinner. We had a delicious beef dish and a chicken dish prepared with a shrimp paste. This was our first visit and we will definitely go back the next time we are in Milpitas. Great food and excellent service!

I used to live in Santa Clara and I when I look back on the things I miss in the valley- this is always one of them. Since then I visit it every time I visit the valley...

We've never experienced Malaysian cuisine. We love thai and read many great reviews. we tried appetizers and basil chicken dish, lime seafood soup and fried rice. All good but to be honest did not rival mediocre thai we've had. It's a good experience and should be tried but we'll probably move on.

We used to live in Bay Area and love the food here. Our regular order was Chow Kueh Teow, Hainan Chicken with Rice and Singaporean Black Pepper Eggplant & String Beans. The food is amazingly good. I had my relatives visiting us from Singapore and they were surprised with the authenticity of the food. Now, we have moved to Detroit.... More

Five of us landed here for dinner, on a high recommendation and we were not disappointed. The ambience is very good, seating indoors and outside, the beers crisp and the food awesome. Would recommend their starters 'roti' or 'palota' as the Malaysians refer to it, and you can crank up the spices, sauces the way you want. It is crowded,... More

Nice location and place, both inside and outside seating is nice. Quick service. I ordered mango prawns and noodles, which wasn't really up to my palate, too sweet and no flavors. Prawns weren't fresh at all, they were slightly fibrous!! May be other items on the menu would be nice, however for the price for those things, i would rather... More
