We came here for Friday nite dinner. We got a table for 3 after a long wait. The restaturant was very crowded. I didnt particularly like the food. I ordered Mango Chicken. Chicken was a little rubbery and the sauce was too tangy, seemed like a tomato ketchup. Overall I felt it was an average restaurant.

From a vegetarian's perspective... Great selection of vegetarian dishes! Malay Thai Tea - Yumm! They serve Tom Yum soup when you first get there. It's completely vegetarian, but SPICY! Roti Prata - great start to your lunch/dinner Melaka okra/stringbeans - Love em! Really good lemongrass taste Asam okra/stringbeans - A bit tangy due to tamrind sauce. Like the taste but... More

Went here after work during my business trip. Sat at the bar and the bartender served me right away. Ordered the Pahd Thai and Fresh Summer Rolls and they were great! Bartender made sure to keep checking on me, and even gave every single person at the bar free carmalized ice cream desert! The restaurant was packed which is always... More

A friend took me here, because he claimed, it's the best tasting food, anywhere. Well, it was right up there, as one of the best, for me. I had the Black Pepper Lobster, & it was outstanding! I will definitely go back!

Banana Leaf's food is excellent for the price. This is our office's go to place whenever we want a lunch out. Food: Savory Asian (more of a Thai/Malaysian flavor) cuisine. I love their Roti. The sauce that comes with it is mouth watering. Some of my coworkers even use the sauce to flavor their rice. Our favorite dishes at this... More

Excellent food and great service. I highly recommend the fried banana with ice cream. Expect to wait for a while to get seated during lunch time. This place is always packed.

We had dinner here last week and enjoyed the food. Roti with sauce was great. So were some other veg dishes ordered by us. Service was OK. Despite good food and reasonable service, it is not a place where you can sit back and enjoy a quiet dinner. Nice place for a quick and delicious meal.

Food is awesome. The Roti and sauce are out of this world. In fact i could drink the sauce. The Satay is excellent and the peanut sauce is very good. The best part is desert. The deep fried banana is to die for....

Anytime I am in Milpitas I gravitate towards the Banana Leaf. The food is delicious, the beef rending is out of this world. Can be quite busy at lunch times. Takeout is quick and easy too with generous helpings.
