There is a ramp at the King St. side of the sidewalk. A small step of about 3 inches into restaurant and door is of normal size. Hope this helps.

Description
BANANA LEAF BRINGS YOU THE TASTES OF ASIAN ALL UNDER ONE ROOF From savory Pad Thai to Mushu Chicken, the tastes of Asia are mouth watering and exotic. But finding them all under one roof was never possible, until now. Banana Leaf Asian Cuisine is Stoney Creek's first Asian fusion restaurant, offering all of your favourite Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai dishes. Owner Tom Ngo and Frankie Chiu welcome you to enjoy the finest selection of delicious Asian cuisine. Conveniently located in the Elm King Plaza in downtown Stoney Creek, across from TD Canada Trust, the restaurant proudly opened its doors in May of 2013. After introducing themselves to the community, Banana Leaf staff members are welcoming more and more repeat customers. Unique house specialties like the Dragon Phoenix Nest, are sure to please. This flavourful feast includes scallops, shrimp, chicken slices and Asian vegetables, stir-fried in garlic, green onion and oyster sauce. Try the Deluxe Shrimp Guoba, featuring shrimp, chicken breast slices, Asian vegetables and crispy rice. The sizzling Satay Beef and Black Pepper Steak are sure to please. A variety of noodle and rice dishes are offered, including the Classic Cantonese Chowmein or Thai Stir-fried Noodles. All of your old favourites are here as well, like General Zuo's Chicken and savoury Pad Thai. Banana Leaf offers may exciting new options you won't find elsewhere. For a variety of meats and fresh vegetables, try the Rainbow Crispy Lettuce Wrap, featuring diced shrimps, minced pork and chicken, diced Chinese sausage, Asian vegetables, crushed peanuts and deep fried rice vermicelli with a lettuce wrapping. Guests can enjoy a wide array of vegetarian, poultry, beef and seafood options at Banana Leaf. The Vegetarian Delight features Asian vegetables, deep fried bean curd and bean thread in a bean curd sauce. To prepare the freshest, most flavorful dishes, Tom and Frankie purchase market-fresh produces every morning. Exotic Asian vegetables like bok choy, snow peas and asparagus are enhanced by the natural flavours of cilantro, lemongrass, basil and other herbs. Dishes are prepared using just the right amount of canola oil, for a great taste that's healthier and less greasy. After a visit to Banana Leaf, guests never leave hungry. The restaurant is known for its big portions and complete meals. With decades of experience in the restaurant and hotel industry, Tom and Frankie welcome you to enjoy authentic Asian cuisine in a warm, relaxing atmosphere. In 1998, Tom opened the successful Blossom City Chinese Restaurant on Brant Street in Burlington Ontario, which is still thriving under different ownership. Blossom City was an overnight success, and Banana Leaf will surely follow suit. Tom and Frankie chose Stoney Creek for their business after realizing the area did not have a restaurant offering a wide range of Asian cuisine. Many restaurants focus, but none offer the broad selection of Asian dishes you'll find at Banana Leaf. Tom's many skills include his work as fruit and vegetable carving artist. Over the years, he has created stunning, intricate centrepieces for weddings and other special events. Using the same care and attention to detail, Tom and Frankie are committed to providing a delicious and enjoyable dining experience. Banana Leaf is open Monday to Sunday for lunch and dinner. A convenient delivery service brings the taste of Asia right to your front door. Delivery is available in Stoney Creek and East Hamilton.
