“Excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The food was amazing, specially the papaya salad! The staff was super kind. I spent 6 days in Krabi and I think I ate 3 or 4 times here. Atmosphere is also very relaxed and the have this tables that look like little bungalows. Prices were very good.

“Wanna eat good Thai food: go to Banana Leaf Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Very good food, very nice and friendly stuff. I have been there several times. It was always very good thai food. There are other restaurants in Ao Nang which are more expensive but the food is never that good.
However, i have to mention that the toilet which is shared with other bars and restaurants around is a bit horrible.

“Terrible service and terrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Don't go. Worst som tam ever. Waited ages for service. Disorganised staff. With so much choice try some of the fabulous alternatives.

“Poor at Best!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner at the Banana Leaf this evening. The place looks nice from the outside. But there are nicer looking restaurants. However if you like Thai food there are limited options.
There seemed to be only one waitress who spoke good English. Unfortunately not ours. After a struggle to get the order sorted our starters arrived, I had the Chicken Satay which was good and my friend ordered the Bruscetta which had been drenched in oil. Definitely not olive oil, it tased more like vegetable oil to me. For my main course I ordered prawns with garlic and pepper and fried rice. It came with steamed rice. When I pointed this out. The waitress apologised and went to replace it. By the time the fried rice appeared the prawns were stone cold and not at all enjoyable. My friend had the Thai green chicken curry but complained about the lack of chicken.
The staff were friendly and polite but I won't be visiting the place again!

“The name sounds like an Indian cuisine dining but it has local and western food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

The local food is pretty good but that's expected. However the western food is sub par. It lacks the quality and taste of what a steak should be. I guess there aren't many average steak places around. The beef was probably from a local cow.
