This Restaurant has Malay in their name. I am very familiar with Malay food but was disappointed here, it was certainly more like Indian than Malay. My friends with me loved the food and I might have but when you are looking forward to having Malay tasting food and don't get that its a let down. Glad my friends liked... More

At a family gathering we ordered a selection of dishes takeaway from Banana Leaf for dinner. The order was fulfilled quickly. All our dishes were nice. Stand outs were the Gado chicken, beef rendang, and especially the Nadi Goreng which was delicious.

A small friendly local Restaurant Authentic Asian meals Unfortunately, has no shade in the early evening on summer days, makes it hard to sit at the window tables

This is my second visit, the first being in July. Once again a lovely meal. Extensive menu which should have something for everyone plus they can help out if you have dietary needs. Everything from mild to very hot & spicy, lots of vegetarian & seafood dishes too.

Last minute decision to eat out resulted in a lovely meal. I would recommend booking if you can as I think because we were early they gave us a reserved table, knowing we would probably be finished by the time that booking was needed. Restaurant certainly filled up during the time we were there. The selection of food was great... More

Made a booking and glad we did. Place was packed out, very popular it seems. The food was superb, really delicious. Service was good but the lad doing it was in shorts and a tshirt, obviously a family run place. Food was delicious and I will definitely be returning. Recommended.

Had takeaways for a change and were very disappointed. Gado gado tofu was just runny and though it tasted ok you needed to drink it, not eat it. Chicken satay had opposite problem and was so dry and overcooked. Because I had it as a main I expected more satay. There was barely enough for 6 skewers so the rest... More

We went with a group of around 30 to celebrate a birthday There is a fine selection of menu to choose from and this was delivered in a timely fashion. The food was delicious and I don't recall any of the group being disappointed. The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. All up a very pleasant experience.

Thank Peter E
