A great set menu for just £18 each which will leave you to full to to walk out of there. Gorgeous startes follwed by shredded duck follwed by a choice of curries and sides. Highly reccomend

“Nice food and pleasant atmosphere”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

The food was very good quality, and although there is now limitations on how many items can be ordered at one time, this seems to be enough items to eat

The food came out piping hot and presented well. There was a good selection of items to choose from

The cost is rather expensive but on par with similar restaurants in the town

“great food, lovely staff.”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

We usually go to the Banana Leaf a few times over the year & most of the time the food & service is great. There are the odd times when we are unhappy with the service, but this is usually when Lok kee is not around & the staff do not seem to be able to manage themselves without him. When we have raised this with the management after an unimpressive evening, the bill was reduced considerably & we were given complementary drinks. I feel that they take good care of their customers & appreciate feedback.
My husband and I love the food here, and love the amount of choice we have. I love the price & the fact that they remember us & always say hi when we come in & are so generally polite.
They have changed the menu, but there are still great things on it. They have a slightly complicated 'all you can eat' system, but i think that is due to people over ordering & wasting food more than anything.
I would say try it, but if it is a special occasion, make sure that the manager Lok kee is on hand or it may not be the best night out service wise.
