Canun twist gives the Banana Leaf Thai (formerly Chinese...) restaurant an interesting backstory. Ask about this when you go here.

I ordered the tom ka soup and it was very watery. Normally, it is made with mainly coconut milk, but this was mainly water. I was very disappointed by this, but nit to the point of one star.

My first trip to this delightful find in a shopping strip mall, but what a delight. Ordered the Pad Thai that flowed over the edges of a large plate. At the end of the meals, I noticed that others also brought enough leftovers for another meal or two. Others bragged on the coconut soup, and sampler -- enough for thee... More

We have been going to this restaurant for the past eight years. "Tad mun Plao" i.e. Fish cake is delicious. Thai fried rice is quite delicious too. Great value for Money. I would rate this as among the Top 3 Thai restaurants in North Dallas/Plano area. I take my guests from out-of-town when they visit us and they all have... More

We have been going to this restaurant for the last 3 years. Fabulous restaurant on Preston Road which has consistently high standards of food and service. They are very accommodating to specific requests and prices are very reasonable. They have a huge selection of vegetarian dishes and any dish can be made without meat if required. The ginger fried rice... More

This neighborhood is blessed with a couple really good Thai restaurants. I have been to Bangkok several time and am always comparing the food to my local favorite at the Banana Leaf. Hard to beat it! Great food, friendly service and very reasonable prices. And the food is enough for two meals, so I take half home to eat for... More

I love this place! At lunch they serve soup, salad, and your entrée. The hot and sour soup, is really good. I always get the Cajun fried rice with chicken. Steve, the owner is Cajun as he lived in Louisiana and is a really funny guy. My husband likes the red and yellow curry, and my girls love the pineapple... More

I have ordered from this restaurant several times and have always been satisfied. This last time I ordered a "Hot Pot" with seafood (Shrimp, squid, mussels, scallops) and it was excellent. I ordered rice to go with it and that was a treat as well. You can order as spicy or as mild as you like. They also have Thai... More

I used to work in the area and frequent Banana Leaf often. My current location requires more time to get there so it fell off my radar. An old friend's invitation to lunch there reminded me of how much I used to enjoy Banana Leaf. Bill ordered the Spicy Noodles with Chicken and I had the Thai Basil with Chicken.... More
