If you are looking for something other than ordinary in Chinatown, Banana Leaf definitely delivers. Good food and service. While we did not live everything we tried, we enjoyed most of it. The Pad Thai was very good, as were the sweet bun appetizer (a roti) and the tofu sate (served cold). Much quicker and less crowded than it's Malaysian cousin around the corner (Penang) and equally good.

The menu has so much variety that we ordered more than we could eat.

The food was very good and the service was excellent. Lots of smiles and willingness to explain dishes.

We started with small bowls of Tomyam soup. It was delicious.

We then shared Nasilemak and Curry Chicken. I was surprised to get bones in the Nasilemak. Otherwise it was really good. The coconut rice flavored with cloves was excellent.

Great place to eat with many choices, cheap and expensive. I had the chicken curry and the sauce was excellent. The waiter Jose was from Honduras and gave me recommendations and answered all my questions about the menu. The service was really good. The restaurant is big and really clean.

Went there 2-3 times, with friends and family. Nice little restaurant at a decent price and great quality food. Allows you to bring your own alcoholic beverages.
Great friendly service. Had a great experience.
