Banana Leaf Restaurant Review:

Appetizers meant for sharing abound at this upmarket-yet-approachable Malay-Thai restaurant, including gado gado, popular roti dishes with dipping sauces, various salads and spring rolls. Satays of skewered beef, chicken or a combination of the two are available. Main courses include chicken or prawns in good stir-fries that showcase green and red peppers and mango sauce. Seafood is also a focus here. We recommend any of the crab dishes, especially the spicy Malaysian-style preparation; black pepper and a chili variation are on offer, too. Noodles, rice dishes and special multi-course dinners are offered. Vegetarians will enjoy the numerous meat-free selections, and eco-carnivores will be pleased that Banana Leaf uses grass-fed beef and lamb. For dessert, fried bananas are the way to go, with or without mango ice cream. A good place to meet a group of friends for lunch or dinner.
