Stopped in for a date night with my wife. The place is a quaint nice atmosphere restaurant to take your special someone too. The food is wonderful and the staff is very friendly. Stop in and give this place a try and I bet you will want to return as soon as you can.

My father and I have eaten here quite often and whether we go in and dine or I carry out, the staff is more than accommodating and friendly. I always feel welcome even when I come in alone. The food is really incredible and I've lived all over and love Thai!

Three of us ate lunch here on Christmas day. We had been told this was a good local Asian/Thai restaurant. The food was well below average for Thai restaurants in Western Washington. Even the pad Thai was off. Based on this dining experience, I would not return to this establishment.

We stopped here for lunch on a recent day trip to PT and stumbled onto this place when the restaurant we normally go to on such outings was closed. Although small and a little out of the way, it was worth the hunt. The food was delicious, and the service was great. The server (owner?) was concerned when my wife... More

When Banana Leaf first opened a number of years ago, it consistently delivered good food and friendly, knowledgeable service. Then the business was sold and, over time, the food and service declined; it felt like nobody cared anymore, so we stopped going there. We currently have some friends visiting from Santa Fe and they remember being here back when the... More

I have been eating here for many years maybe 100 times or more over the last seven years and they've never disappointed me. This is the first time since the new owners of taking over and it's still good.

It's a pretty olive green building, inviting upon entering. The fare is traditional Thai and the staff was very welcoming. Prices are average and amble indoor seating. It's not smokey or noisey as other Thai restaurants in town.

Thai food is among my favorite foods, so it was easy to convince me to try this restaurant. The food was well-seasoned and for we were offered the range of 1 to 5 for spicy on those dishes that were not cooked mild by tradition. I enjoy authentic Thai food because each restaurant varies its seasoning based on family traditions.... More

Lovely authentic That food The waitress was attentive with the loveliest smile We had the tiger prawn special and pork red curry Both were delicious and were followed by sticky rice with mango syrup and coconut ice cream for desert. Equally as nice. Prices were very reasonable and we had a nice seat by the window.

Thank Sueden1
