Excellent quality and we'll flavored Thai cuisine with many many options to choose from. Try the Fried sea bass, it has a unique savory and wonderful flavor. Great service and selection.

The first impression we have when we entered the restaurant is wow, you will be amazed by its decoration. Next the friendliness and smile from the staffs are amazing, making you feel like coming back even without tasting the food. Anyway just like the service, the food are good, I especially like the pad kee mao, one of the best... More

My wife and I have eaten here numerous times. Joe, the owner is very personable and works the crowd to make sure everything runs smoothly. Dishes are prepared fresh to order and portions are substantial. The pace is leisure and there is no rush -so enjoy the experience.

Server was very helpful and attentive, Meals came quickly and were impressive - quantity was "a lot". Only one diner finished their meal... More

This is a clean and elegant Thai restaurant in North Dallas right off Preston Road. We had great food and it was quiet so we could talk and actually hear each other. We were not rushed to leave and had a nice leisurely lunch.

If you've never been to Banana Leaf, don't be surprised when the Asian owner greets you and/or takes your order. His heavy Texas accent takes you aback. His food is consistent and excellent.

Busy dinner hours easily accommodated with several dining areas, patio dining, and spacious foyer if you have to wait a bit - all sporting Asian decor that doesn't try too hard. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Drinks neither too weak or heavy. Plenty of familiar dishes to choose from, plus a few welcome surprises, as the owner (Steve) seems to... More

Canun twist gives the Banana Leaf Thai (formerly Chinese...) restaurant an interesting backstory. Ask about this when you go here.

I ordered the tom ka soup and it was very watery. Normally, it is made with mainly coconut milk, but this was mainly water. I was very disappointed by this, but nit to the point of one star.
