We had already seen this restaurant on line and read good reviews before arriving in Vancouver and had decided to give it a go. When it was also recommended by staff at the visitor centre at Canada Place we knew it would be good. We...weren't disappointed. Very friendly welcome, nice atmosphere and of course the great food which was plentiful and delicious. Reasonably priced as well. Would recommend phoning ahead to make a reservation.More

Can’t speak highly enough of this casual eatery offering fantastic fresh and tasty Asian dishes. The portions are pretty large so a main was plenty for us with my Beef Curry hitting the spot - hot but still really tasty. Chicken dishes also went down...a storm. Service was friendly and fast. Thanks!More

Delicious food and lovely staff. Great Malaysian food. Beef randang, papaya salad and roti the best I’ve had for ages.

This unassuming restaurant on Robson is a gem. We sat outside and had some cocktails first, which were delicious. My son said the dark and stormy was the best one he had tasted. The service was efficient, prompt and friendly. All the food came to...our table hot and was nicely presented, especially the pineapple fried rice, which was served in half a pineapple. The ginger beef broccoli and kung pow chicken was also incredible. We were so stuffed after the main course, that we ended up sharing the dessert - the pulut inti, which was also really good. The beers were good, as was the local British Columbian pinot gris. A fabulous place to come and eat - it was one of our favourite meals in Vancouver.More

What an absolute delight this restaurant was, from the moment we walked in nothing was too much trouble,there was a good choice of food and drinks and the portions were quite big you could have shared a main course between 2, the service was first...class and it was good value for money, I recommend that you give it a try if your ever in Vancouver, you won't be disappointed.More

Food is good, although rather heavy for an Asian cuisine. The apparent owner was not very friendly and with a hasty approach. Maybe it is common in Canada, but bringing the check without having asked for it is rather rude in many other places. A...lovely waitress tried to make up for it.More

I went here four times while visiting and every meal was 10/10. I'd planned to visit other places in the area but stumbled across Banana Leaf on my first night in town and I couldn't go past it. Great food, large servings, excellent prices, and...friendly staff.More

We happened on this restaurant by chance, feeling a bit fragile after a long flight from the UK. We had only one starter and one main between us but the service couldn’t have been friendlier. The Rendang beef curry was melt in the mouth and...full of great flavours. The Tom yum goong soup was also great and to our delight we enjoyed the Monday happy hour bottle of wine discount. We’re back in Vancouver in a week or so and plan to visit again, with more energy.More

Stopped into Banana Leaf on a rainy Thursday afternoon, and got a nice surprise! We ordered the 7-course tasting menu, which includes these dishes: Green Asian Salad Roti Canai Satay Chicken Gulai Fish Fillet Sambal Green Beans Rendang Beef Curry Served with Jasmine Rice Pandan...Coconut Panna Cotta All of it was good, but my favorites were the Gulai Fish Filet (could've eaten a quart!), and the Sambal Green Beans. The Satay was also delish. The atmosphere was cozy. Really lovely little spot with yummy food.More
