“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

My wife and I have eaten there twice and a great experience both times. Tried the Pad Thai (#90 noodles), Pineapple Fried Rice (#31) served in a hollowed out pineapple (kind of neat), Grilled Pork Spring Rolls (#96); all the food was excellent as was the service. Nice sized portions and pleasant atmosphere. The chop sticks were not wrapped and sitting in an empty glass on the table this is definitely a no no and easy to correct. If you use chop sticks, suggest you bring your own - the food is worth this shortcoming. They only have a supper menu, even for lunch, would be worth it to have luncheon specials ... would have a positive impact on luncheon business. Need to make a few minor changes to make it a destination restaurant!

“Super fast, great food.”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Great choice on the menu, with a icon to show the spicy foods, that I need to avoid.

Ordered a starter, and just before we were finished the main meals came out, piping hot and good portions.

Our main meals were very good, and the cashew shrimp was loaded up with large shrimp that were very tasty.

The décor and seating was a bit average, but the quality of the food more than made up for it.

Asian Banana Leaf is now on our list of restaurants that we'll be visiting again.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Stopped for lunch here.

Pleasant decor and service.

Had the Satay Tofu with Green Beans - very tasty. We ordered a side dish of steamed white rice to go with this.

Also tried the Combo Satay Rice Noodle Soup - seafood and chicken. The spice kind of creeps up on you.

Nice broth with 2-3 pieces each of chicken, shrimp and squid. The scallops were very small and I did not notice any pork paste? Perhaps it dissolves in the broth?

We also tried the Avocado shake - made with real avocado. Refreshing.

Also had the iced coffee - standard vietmanese offering.

“Pretty good little restaurant.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Stopped and got takeout for late lunch. A mixed grill on rice, mixed seafood and vegs on noodles, salad rolls.

All pretty standard Asian flare cuisine and flavours. Service was fine but we just had to sit and wait really.

Pricing was average. Would recommend most likely.
