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.

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.
