Foods decent, they?re pretty generous with the meat in the noodle dishes. Tofu Curry could use more sauce. Service is solid. Mens washroom is located in a weird place though, you have pass through the staff cashier area to get there
Banana Leaf never disappoints me in wherever I go in Vancouver. First time in Broadway restaurant and I loved from the entry point. When most of the restaurants were closed on Sunday evening, Banana leaf was open and served my favourite Beef nasi goreng with Shrimp with complementary nuts.. Portion size is bigger than the Davie Street Banana Leaf and taste was also better. If the partitions put up for covid can be removed, interior would be perfect. Overall great experience and taste 9/10..
The 7 course tasting menu for $27/pp is very worth it. The sauce for the roti canai is very very good. The peanuts inside really brings out the overall flavor of the sauce. The rendang beef + curry veggie + rice is very good. The sauce for all these dishes are very well balanced and complement each other very well. Parking is very limited at the back of the restaurant.
I have always enjoyed Banana Leaf food. We tried their dine out menu. It was soooo much food! We enjoyed all of them. The staff were super friendly. And the service was so fast.
It's been many years since I was last here and boy have they updated their space! I feel like the food is still full of classic Malaysian flavours but the dining room has a much more contemporary feel. They even have their own custom beer from Russell! Price point is comparable to any where else in the city these days. I'll be back!
Nice and cozy restaurant, the food tasted delicious and great selections of authentic Malaysian cuisine. This restaurant could be very busy especially during the weekends. Highly recommended for ppl who loves Malaysian cooking. Good food portions but a little pricey to dine in, not recommended if you're going for your first date and you're spending lol! but if you wanna impressed her then yes! go for it LoL! Jk! ??
You must dine here. We began our amazing dinning experience with jasmine tea then Roti Canai. This roti was light and fluffy that paired well with a flavourful, not spicy, curry dipping sauce. So yummy! The pineapple fried rice had shrimps, scallops and it came in a real pineapple. Very fancy! The Malaysian food tasted very authentic. The curried chicken was not spicy and aromatic. This was my second time trying Kalamari. It was very soft on the inside but crispy on the outside and the seasoning was on point. It was the best Kalamari we ever tried. This restaurant was very clean and everything was set in its place. The live plants created a unique ambiance that was comforting while we had dinner during the pandemic. This is what I call social distancing and safe while dinning in. (See pics) We felt as if we were in Malaysia. Thank you to the well trained staff and Justin - manager, for the delicious food and great service which was the highlight of our evening. I will definitely return to this restaurant with my friends. I love this restaurant.?
We?ve been to this Banana Leaf location numerous times over the years, and I have to say they?re fairly consistent throughout their food and service. The decor is pretty up to date, this location is a narrow long seating set up, and only 3 booths are close to the window. They do have patio seating outside during the summer though. Food was always on point and very good. I particularly liked their seafood curry and beef and broccoli dish. The curry has ample amounts of fish, prawns and shellfish. The curry goes really well with rice. The beef and broccoli while is on the sweet side, it also has a deep soy sauce flavour. Their pineapple fried rice is also a must try. Lastly, don?t forget to order the deep fried bananas to wrap up your meal. The cold vanilla ice cream mixed with the crunchy batter and hot creamy bananas is to die for. Service is always excellent as well. The servers are all really attentive, you can also flag down any server and they will provide service. Throughout our years of going to banana leaf there have been incidents (forgotten order, wrong dish, and etc) but they always strived to make it right. Because of their great service, they?re definitely one of our go to restaurants in the city!
