When I first got to the restaurant I was upset because there was what seemed like a long wait. It was well worth the wait. The food was excellant and the service was great as well. It is a wonderful place to go for any occasion.

The food is excellent and you get a great variety of Malayan food. I can recommend a family plate where you can taste from all the different tasty dishes. The service is very friendly.

We been to Banana Leaf, many times- it's so cool there like you are eating in another world. They really have it looking like some where far away from a movie. Yeah, it's totally crowded all the time and it's kinda of small for all the people that dine there. But, there is no where else like it. We always... More

Picked this place after reading the trip advisor reports. This is a great little place and food is good. It was quite packed, even on a Monday evening for dinner. The papaya salad, shrimp roll and seafood with eggplant was excellent. Will go there again.

Although the selection was very good, what was served up gave the impression of a hurried preparation. The idea is to turn the tables faster than to give special attention. Taste was okay...

All time favorite for all my friends and family. Banana Leaf is always the first option when it comes to dinning out. Excellent veggie dishes. Even there desert ice-cream are delicious. The only draw back is, since the food is so awesome that the restaurant is always crowded and have a long wait. Which is worth it 100 times.

I had never tried Curry before, but now I can't get enough of the stuff. Especially from the Banana Leaf! Everything I tried was delicious!
