I got addicted to this place I must say. I first ventured dining out on their SM The Block branch in 2009 with their very comprehensible menu (the meu was mostly foreign-sounding since it's an eclectic mix of Inidan, Malaysian, Singaporean, and Indonesian food) with accompanying English translations and very catchy, inviting food photgraphs to go with it so you won't go wrong with what you order and they are displayed just by the door. I ordered their Fried Tilapia with Assam Sambal Sauce and Calamares. It was the most beautifuulll Tilapia I've seeen...lol. Deep-fried to perfection with its head turned up a bit and drizzled with Assam Sambal Sauce. The spiciness was just right, in fact, wasn't really that spicy to suit any discriminating anti-spicy palate. 2 days later, I went again by myself again, 5 day later, went there with my mom and ordered spring rolls, Calamares, and Tilapia with Assam Sambal Sauce. She liked it as well.
However, the branch in Trinoma (went there in 2011) wasn't equally as good as the one in SM The Block.. We ordered their Pomfret fish (forgot the exact menu name)and it was tough. The fried rice, Pad Thai, and Chicken wrapped in Pandan leaves were good though. I would definitely come back!

The concept of Banana Leaf plays well on Filipino culture even though it's not necessarily a Filipino restaurant. Eating on banana leaves in a well designed restaurant is refreshing for diners like us. We ordered the chicken curry with eggplant and it was absolutely delicious, we were even given a choice to make the spiciness just mild for my friend who is not into spicy foods. The prawn toasts were also really good. The branch in Trinoma can be a bit small when diners are filling in but it does not take away from the good dining experience. The servers and waitresses looked pleasant and they were knowledgeable about the menu so they were able to assist is very well. I'll definitely eat there again.
