Had a business lunch here and was very pleased with the service and quality of food. It was recommended to me by a friend in Austria, believe it or not, and it lived up it its reputation. I will definitely come back here.

For once I felt letdown with a high TA rating. OKish at best I did not find the ranking appropriate. I had Malaysian and Thai food here that were average. We were a large group and the overall feedback was also tame. Only the veggie grill dish got some appreciation.

Went here for dinner with some colleagues during a business trip in San Jose. The place was so busy, but the service was good. As I'm originally from Indonesia, I found the food was not too special, it was not bad but just ok for me. The price was reasonable as well.

This restaurant is certainly worth a visit if you like Asian food. Both the service and the food were better than average and the price was reasonable. It is best to get there early or to reserve as number of people waiting for a table by 7 PM.

We have never gone wrong to bring our friends, family and business clients to Banana Leaf. Best Asian food place in South Bay IMO. My favorite dishes are Roti Parata, pineapple fried rice, Indian mi go rang.

Food is ok. You are better of trying it at other fusion south east asian restaurants. Always went there with family / friends. Always thought that food was overpriced for portion and taste and quality. Stopped going here since jan 2016. Found much better alternatives.

Was in Milpitas on business for a few days and decided to give this place a try. The food was plentiful and delicious! My wife and I could not finish everything. I definitely recommend this place and will go back again.
