What a tasty selection of dishes served with a smile! Our family of 6 (including a 5 year old) cleaned our plates and left happy. The hostess was very friendly and helpful and we felt like valued customers. We will be back for another celebration!

We arrived just before our 6:00 reservation and were able to order a couple of glasses of wine at $5.00 happy hour prices. After perusing the menu we decided to try the tasting menu as it was just the 2 of us and we wanted a good sampling of the various foods. They have 2 tasting menus - 1 at... More

Good selection of food at reasonable price and excellent service. Excellent atmosphere as well. Try their seven course or nine course 'tester' if you have never tried Malaysian cuisine before.

Good place to get a hot bowl of noodles on a rainy day. Visited the Davie street location with my girlfriend for lunch. We got there early to beat the lunch crowd. They have a specific lunch meal with different price ranges. For example, there's the 'perfect lunch' for $15 per person with minimum of 2 people or 'big lunch... More

I was with a group of 6 and we ordered several dishes to share family style. We ate everything! It was lovely. My only thing was that we sat near the back and it was busy and loud with the phone and food prep. Overall, though, I have enjoyed excellent meals at all three BL locations.

When I visit Vancouver, one the highlights is to dine at this spot on West Broadway. I cannot say if the other Banana Leaf locations match this for excellence in tasty food and impeccable service. On my most recent trip, three of us tried the Chef's tasting menu and all I can say in OMG what a great value for... More

Excellent food and service. We've been there three times and have always enjoyed our food. My family wants to return to Vancouver just so they can eat at the Banana Leaf.

I went to this place to celebrate my daughter's birthday... After our years in Brunei, we developed a taste for Borneo food. I tried the Singaporean Laksa and I was definitively shocked... That was the best Laksa I have tried since I left Brunei... I have visited many places around the world and I was certainly very impressed by the... More

We met a friend for lunch on a busy Friday, but were pleasantly accommodated after a very short wait. The food was plentiful and good. We enjoyed it very much and would return.

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighborhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
