I go there about every other month and never been disatisfied. The service is more family style, don't expect a Maître D' when you have a full meal for $20.00, plus I go there for the food, not the decor. It's clean and neat, I don't need more. And there is plenty on the plates. You got to make choice in life. Like they say in french: you can't have the butter and the money from the butter at teh same time. I prefer a plain decor and homey service with good food.

Expectations were high after reading the reviews on this site. However, the most important aspect of any restaurant is the food. And this is where Restaurant Banlao faltered.
The first dish that I ordered was the crab and asparagus soup. Watery and rather bland.
The main dish was the curried shrimp. The sauce was far too watery, and the shrimp were overdone.
The jasmine tea was acceptable, but I would have expected a pot of tea, not just a cup with no refills offered. The best part was the lotus cookie. That managed to be quite a tasty treat, although on the oily side.
I guess the redeeming feature is that this establishment is that it is a "bring your own wine" place, if that is what you are looking for.
I do not normally write reviews, but I feel that I had to add my very ordinary experience to the rest of the commentaries.
