I want to start by saying I ordered my dinner for delivery and the service in that aspect was perfect. For dinner I ordered the red curry chicken with noodles and the fresh spring rolls. The spring rolls were a bit over filled and the seams were bursting making it hard to hold together. There was also an over abundance... More

A colleague of mine wanted to take myself and another colleague here for lunch. Now im not the type to try food outside the box... I had my doubts in the beginning. I ordered the honey sesame chicken. Oh my gosh it was amazing. The service was amazing. I highly recommend this place! Definitely going back!

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.

Dinner for 4 - at 6:00pm - no problem getting a table but was filling up by 7:00 so a booking might be advisable. Menu was extensive. Each of us (4) selected meals we had enjoyed elsewhere. 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
