You get the best Mango chicken and pineapple fried rice over here. A little expensive, but worth a try. Highly recommended!!

it was a great pleasure to visit the Banana Leaf. Having lived in SE Asia, and having travelled to the area many times, it was a pleasure to eat something this familiar. It was also a pleasure the portions were not as huge as you see in other US restaurants. I do have to note that some of the flavors... More

We had been to Banana Leaf a couple of times and invariably had to wait for a table. The place seems to be crowded always - a sure sign of popularity. On this visit we were a family group of seven and had made reservation. We ordered for Malaysian Iced Tea, Roti-Prata(paper-thin crispy multi-layered pancake), Tai Pou Chicken (fried chicken),...

Banana Leaf has a great range of Asian food, and the food is never disappointing. Service is really quick too! Great to eat in or to take away, but be warned, it gets very busy in the evenings so get there early.

Really enjoyed the curry meals here, in particular the curry red beef and the lamb. Only issue is that it is always too crowded.

Have been to Banana Leaf countless number of times in that last 10 years, and this is a feeling that I get consistently and increasingly for the past couple of years: It has become a cash cow for the owners. I hope many of you are familiar with this term used by marketing folks to describe a product line which... More

Very good Malay/SIngaporean food. Good variety. Their Roti Pratas are out of this world. Had several of their disses. Singapore Style Black Pepper seafood (or chicken) is excellent. Very spice but very good. Their Randang chicken is superb too. I enjoyed several of their dishes. Very good. Their deserts are good too. Very crowded. Long wait for lunch. Get there... More

I decided to try Banana Leaf after realizing it was close to my hotel and was rated #1. I came pretty early in the evening and sat at the bar, but was given very good service. My salmon dish was very different than what I would have expected at an Asian restaurant, but was good nonetheless. I probably would have... More
