This place is a lot bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. They have an open kitchen that is full of action and it's a busy, happy place. It's like a trip to Singapore without the long flights and the airfare. The...More

The Malaysian food is a refreshing change from the other Asian restaurants in the area. Service is great even though the restaurant is very busy. The food is well prepared. A good choice for a night out!

So this advertises itself as a Malaysian restaurant, and the menu reflects that. Banana Leaf is obviously very, very popular with the local crowds. We managed to get a table without waiting too long, 5mins. However when we had finished our meal the lines were...More

This was rated the #2 place in town. It was very good. The service was good. The food a little better than average but not a #2 rating. We did enjoy our meal. The place does fill up. Thanks

We looked up the reviews and visited for dinner. Our expectations increased as there was a long wait time even as late as 9:30 pm. A very courteous staff seated us and helped us in choosing the starters and main course and desserts. The overhyped...More
