“Worth the wait”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

This place is crowded most of the times, but it is worth the wait
I Loved the Roti Pratas and the sea food fried rice here.

“Another Great Meal At The Leaf”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Our 5th time there was just as good as the other 4. This place is outstanding!
The pepper prawns and sea bass are to die for. Mango sticky rice is made with black rice and is an excellent way to close outthe meal.
Service was very attentive and efficient. Food was served quickly and exactly to order.

Suggest you get there early because if not, plan on waiting. The word is out this place rocks!

“Good vegetarian food”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We went here after a hike to mission peak nearby. The food is really good. We had the roti parata which is excellent and quite unique, I would probably go there just for that. Then we had the Asam Eggpant and fried rice, both excellent. Pad thai was ok. Definitely recommended. But they have long wait, we went at 7:00pm Saturday and had 20min wait, but when we came out around 8:00 there seemed to be a LOT more people waiting. So time your trip, they won't take reservation.

“Ridiculous! Very bad service & they haunt and run behind to the car if you don't tip atleat 10%”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

DO NOT GO....


We went to this crowded cheap mentality surrounded place. The food was Ok. At the end our dinner, My hubby tipped the waiter little less than 10%. We left to the car & was about to start the car, The manager comes running behind asking for more tip.. My hubby answered that it is indecent to ask for Tip following you to the car. He said its indecent to leave a tip less than 10%. We got furious & asid that we would take back the tip we left.. He said its Ok & walked away..

“Pretty good”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

All their veggie stuff is excellent! I've found their chicken skewers to be on the raw side. Roti prata for appetizer and fried bananas with ice cream for dessert are the best!
