“Very nice little restaurant and good service. Pity they don't serve Soda Water.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Adobong Kangkong with Sambal & Oats coated Prawns very nice. They are my choice in this restaurant. Plates are banana leaf of course and my husband found it a bit daunting with that kind of "plate". We would have tried a few more dish but this was all we could eat in the evening. Lunch would probably be better off with a big meal and could have tried the other good looking dish on their menu. Highly recommended.

“Loved the ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I ate at Banana Leaf at the Podium a few years back but didn't much like it maybe because of the type of food we ordered or wasn't much hungry then. I went back with my friends and loved their baby back ribs we doubled our order. We also liked the pandan chicken, the kangkong, the spring roll.

“Uncooked chicken skewers!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Went here for lunch in Greenbelt, it's on level one with a nice view over the park area. Ordered vege simosas & spring rolls which were ok but with quite greasy / oily pastry. Ordered mango chicken salad which was DELICIOUS. Satay chicken kebabs however came out half raw! And we only realized halfway through the second one. Clear/pink meat when pulled apart with a fork- not good and we are hoping we don't get sick! The next 24 hours will tell.
