Our first experience with banana leaf was really great. It was the one on Denman street. We had ordered a lunch platter and it was delicious. The food was perfect and they treated us nicely enough to make us try Banana Leaf again. This time...More

Banana Leaf restaurants in Vancouver are all really good. I have visited all of their locations and the quality of food, service, and atmosphere are all consistently good. If you are hungry, you may go for tasting menu. Fun place with friends.

This restaurant was recommended by a local so we were eager to enjoy some authentic cuisine. The services was great, but the food was not. Texture and flavour were poor. It was really too bad.

We ordered the set menu which for $25 was great value. The food was fresh and well prepared and more than we could eat so the waitress packaged the rest up for us to take home. The service was efficient and friendly.

Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver.
It is the only like area in the world to have a
permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the
city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging
from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant.
By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic
boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines,
humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside
