Was here with the wife for lunch today. She had the Gado Gado Salad, it was passable, not great. The same dish at Simpang Asia is far superior! Still my big issue with these guys, Handwritten Signs saying "Cash Only". Who are we kidding!

Great place for Indonesian and Singaporean food, especially for somebody who used to live in that part of the world.

Located in the Farmers Market, this Indonesian restaurant has curries and salads. The service is quick and you can sit outside under the trees with the other Farmers Market diners.

On a recent trip to LA I found this little gem of a place tucked away in the Farmers Market. Singapore's Banana Leaf has great friendly service and food that is truly delicious.

Definitely a must try if you are looking for some good food from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. I was spoilt for choice initially and settled for the chicken rendang with rice after much thoughts. Everything was good and authentic and the only minus point was it just wasn't spicy enough even though I ordered the spicy version. Same goes to... More

This is a hole in the wall restaurant within the confines of the huge Farmer's Market. There are communal tables in the alleyway between the restaurants. We were visiting Los Angeles, and we stopped here to tour and eat lunch. What a pleasant surprise this restaurant was! I can't tell you what I had, but it had coconut milk, plenty... More

There aren't many Asian restaurants where I'm from so when I was visiting the Old Farmer's Market in Los Angeles I had to try Singapore's Banana Leaf. I found my dish to be very tasty. I enjoyed it with chopsticks and ate the entire dish. I liked how the food was placed on a banana leaf. It was a bit... More

We lived in Singapore for several years decades ago, and decided to try this Singapore eatery within the market. We have always like laksa, and one of us ordered that and the other the vegetarian curry. Usually laksa is hotter, but this one was actually pretty mild, perhaps the srichaca at the table was meant to hot it up. In... More

Asians are not making your food, they were Spanish. Did not really find the food to be authentic. There was not a line up as well unlike the other places at this market.

It's located in the Farmer's market next to the Grove. I really like this place when I'm in the mood for Singapore's food. It's also great to eat there when the weather is nice during the summer. I love everything on the menu.
