We had gone for dinner on Saturday and as expected, had to wait for about 20/30 minutes. This place seems to be crowded on all days which translates to popularity. We had ordered for Roti-Prata (thin multi-layered bread) to eat with Rempah Chicken (with dried chili sauce) and Pineapple Fried Rice (with pineapple bits, cashews, peas, chicken & shrimp - served in a pineapple shell). The food was Very Tasty & Flavorful. Service was fast,friendly & efficient. Ambience is not that of a "fancy" restaurant, in one word; "simple". A good place to go with family and friends for lunch or dinner.

Used to go to Banana Leaf regularly for lunch with colleagues during my past visits. Went there for dinner yesterday on my own. Was surprised to see the place completely packed on a Monday night, got a spot at the bar. Barman was friendly but not annoying. Food came fairly quickly despite the crowd. Good serving of Satay with lots of sauce on the side, and the green beef curry was fantastic: just spicy enough, lots of vegetables. Only downside was the Hefeweizen beer lacked flavour, expected since it was draught I guess.

Simple ambiance located in a shopping plaza. Featuring a deep menu that makes selecting a single dish extremely difficult. Great place to go with some friends and enjoy a number of plates family style. Highly recommend the black perpper prawns ($13.95) and basil fried rice ($8.95). Dishes do not look big, but are pleasantly plentiful. Servers are friendly and attentive. Order to eat time is short.

Food is simply great - the roti prata's are mouth watering. I would recommend this to every person visiting this restaurant.
There is a egg plant dish which is great too.

This place deserves its high rating. They have an excellent Asian menu with a mix of Indian, Thai and some others. I always get Indian dishes and they have always been excellent. I have had numerous business dinners there (never lunch) and they have always been enjoyed by all (mostly out of town people). It's always been crowded and lively so not a place for a private, quiet dinner, but the food and service is excellent.
