Little kosy place. The service was agile and good. The food was well served and the dishes were tasty. The guests this evening were both individuals, couples and families.

I stopped for a quick lunch and got the lunch special. It looked a bit small when it arrived but actually filled me up nicely. At 8.99 this was great value for money, and the beef rendang was tender and delicious. My partner (who has...More

With the popularity of egg related brunch restaurants going through the roof I have found solace in Asian noodle bowls for Saturday and Sunday brunch. Banana Leaf's Laksa bowl hit's the spot for me, but the 12 course for $12 is also a good time.

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
