I have several friends who live in Vancouver and often eat at this restaurant. As a result, it came highly recommended to me when I asked for suggestions for my first visit to the city. Knowing some of the food I like, I was told this should be near the top of my list of places to eat. They must... More

We were in town visiting my son who recommended this place. He enjoys eating here so we thought we'd give it a try. Our server was very friendly, noted that I was chilly and asked if I would like a cup of hot water instead of the cold water I had ordered. Of the 6 dishes we ordered, we enjoyed... More

Good menu choices, authentic fare from south east Asia, big portions and a quick and friendly service. The Mee Goring and the veggie eggplant were excellent and a must try.

After reading reviews on here we phoned ahead from our road trip in the Rockies from Sun Peaks to book a table. However, on the night we arrived they had no record of our booking. They did accommodate us though but we had to wait so we went next door for a drink first. When we got back we were... More

My first time to this Banana Leaf location, my second time to a Banana Leaf restaurant. I just wish Banana Leaf would expand south to Seattle! In my experience, the food and service are consistently very good. On this visit, our food arrived so quickly it actually beat our drinks...and it wasn't that the drinks were particularly slow! The Spinach... More

I came here with a group of six people for lunch at around 1.45pm on a Saturday, and didn't have a problem getting seated. I went for the 'big lunch' option, and while not enormous, it was a great size, and more importantly was really delicious. One member of my group has celiac disease and was provided with a gluten-free... More

The Banana Leaf has a pleasant atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. We shared the appetiser for two. I particularly enjoyed the satay. Our mains were Nasi Goreng and Singapore Laksa—huge portions, we would probably have been satisfied with just one main dish and two starters. They were both tasty, but the pickled cabbage with the Nasi Goreng should... More

Our first experience with Malaysian food, the waitstaff gladly helped us with the menu. All items (meat and vegan) were fantastic. Friendly service, nice decor, very enjoyable experience.

Staying in Davie Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver. It is the only like area in the world to have a permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant. By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines, humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside many of the hip and trendy bars and dance halls. The area is diverse and welcoming, and its supportive community makes for a tight-knit group of independent and creative shops.
