We went with a large group and did tapas style ordering, so we tried probably 15 different dishes - I was amazed that I liked every single one of them! I still have dreams about the Roti Prata, highly recommend that!

A colleague suggested Banana Leaf on our last evening of our business trip and while I was skeptical, I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. At first, the menu was a little overwhelming as I was not sure what all the dishes were. But we had a very patient and wonderful waitress who helped each one of... More

Quickly seated on arrival & served pronto. Our server was friendly & helpful Food decent quality, not too expensive either. As food & drink were delivered so quickly we did feel a bit rushed. We didn't want a pudding but was given one on the house to share which was a nice gesture. Very busy restaurant so good atmosphere

I went with high expectations, due to TA reviews but left a bit disappointed. The place was busy, the staff were attentive, and the food was good but no better than that. Price I thought was quite reasonable though.

Went here for a lunch meeting with friends(casual, as otherwise not good for business meeting- too loud). Very busy, best arrival time is 11:40 am , but sevice is fast. I ordered the banana Leaf rice with beef, which was really good. Would definitely try restaurant out again

I can't describe the food, but if you love Thai, you'll relish this place. This restaurant has had a line out the door for more than a decade. We never wanted to stand in that line to find out what good things were going on inside, but one day we finally did. DELICIOUS . The lines have dropped a bit,... More

Dropped in for an early dinner. The choice is excellent and the quality was super. Good service - attentive to dietary requirements and know their food and what it contains, etc. Fast service and good experience.

The food here was great, and it's a nice location for groups. Do note, however, that most of their food is really spicy!!

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.

Thank Urcky
